Make sure you shop local this Christmas in Vancouver. Every year when Christmas rolls around, I get so excited for the chance to support small local businesses in my area. Personally, I love quality over quantity. I know first hand how amazing it feels to get a booking/order as a small business and I always want to spread that cheer. So I encourage you to shop small this year in Vancouver for Christmas and support all these amazing artists in your area. Order online or find out which markets they will be at during the holiday season. My favourite days during the holidays consist of a warm drink and walking around a market finding the perfect, thoughtful gifts for my loved ones. Here are some of my favourite artists and brands to shop local in Vancouver for Christmas.
My all time favourite linen clothing. Handmade to perfection. Layer them up for winter or perfect throw ons in the summer. I wear my Kepola pieces all year long. Vancouver friends, you will have to order online. Shop here.
Hendriks series also just came out with a stunning linen line. In collaboration with other artists, Hendriks creates stunning pieces that fall perfectly. Check out their Instagram for market dates in the Sea to Sky area. Shop here.
