I have been contacted a few times by people visiting Vancouver, British Columbia, most recently by a lady from Tennesse, for where to go for craft supplies and indie crafts in the city. So I figured that it would be handy to have a page with a few of my favourite spots that I could direct people to and you can add your favourite finds below. I will be breaking the post into sections of the city to make it more manageable, so let’s start off with downtown / chinatown / gastown.
honourable mentions for local handmade finds + a quick bite to eat: Old Faithful Shop – 320 W. Cordova Street, Dream – 311 W. Cordova Street, Meat + Bread – 370 Cambie Street, Nuba – 1489 E. Hastings Street, La Taqueria – 322 E. Hastings St, New Town – 158 E. Pender St (best steamed bbq pork buns + butterfly pastries)
