Strathcona Community Tees + Totes

StrathconaCommunityTeesStrathcona has always been in our hearts. My relatives moved into a row home, which is still in the family, near Union Street in the 1920s. My grandma used to take tai chi classes at the Ray Cam Community Centre every Saturday and we would meet the rest of the family there before having dim sum at Pink Pearl or lunch somewhere in Chinatown. I used to walk down to Kenny’s convienence store on East Hastings with my aunt for penny candies and if I didn’t like his selection, we would walk half a block further to Penny’s conveience store. We bought our weekly groceries at Sunrise Market, Rice World, Double Happiness, New Town Bakery, and have been going to the recently destroyed, Daisy Garden, for as long as I can remember. I took my first piano and ballet classes at the Strathcona Community Centre, attended family weddings at Strathcona Church, and most recently, celebrated our son’s first birthday at MacLean Park.

When we set out to find a location for London Fields Shoppe, we never thought we would be in the Heatley Block, but we are super proud to be back in Strathcona and for the opportunity to rediscover new gems and past haunts. We were actually so excited that we asked our friends, Locomotive Clothing, to hand print and design a neighbourhood specific t-shirt. Aren’t they amazing? We have also collaborated with Locomotive Clothing to print the cotton totes shown above with 100% proceeds to the Strathcona Community Centre Association. Shirts are available in various sizes including baby, child, youth, men, and women. Show your neighbourhood pride and find both of these items in-store or online here.

For other neighbourhood love, check out The Pleasant Shop (Mount Pleasant), Brick & Mortar Living (New Westminster), Gatley (Commercial Drive), Stepback (Kitsilano), and Spruce Collective (Fraser Valley).
