This year for all my holiday gift giving I'm going to make a real effort to either hand make my gifts, or made by someone locally. Thankfully, there is GIFT SHOP, a temporary holiday gift shop running for the next three weekends in Gastown, Vancouver. I just checked out the shop today and it's a beautifully curated, cozy space filled with gifts that are so lovingly made by some of my favourite creative people in town. I brought some goods to shop too; some men's and women's leather belts with solid brass buckles, and my gold plated school pins -always a crowd pleaser. Check it out and come say hi!
