What could be better on a gloomy West Coast day than a cup of tea in the afternoon?
Chloe read about a new little tea shop not too far away from us. The Sunny Side tea shop is in the rainiest part of Vancouver, Deep Cove, a small town on the edge of Indian Arm, the only fjord in BC.
There are samples of all the lovely teas lined up in rows of small jars for us to smell and chose from.
We chose our teas and the proprietor brewed us a couple of mugs worth.
We were handed our tea in some beautiful locally handmade mugs.
Then we sat down with our tea on a little sofa against the window and looked around at the lovely shop.
It’s so warm and beautiful in here. The shelves are lined with lovely goods handmade by local artists.
On both sides of the room.
Also some carefully hand picked books and magazines, like this Kinfolk magazine.
After our tea, we walked across the street to this little boutique.
It’s the most amazing little place full of fun outdoor stuff.
And lovely gifties for Christmas! We loved this fun coaster.
This little boutique is a hit with C.
We have to come back here soon with our naughty and nice lists.
Next door is another lovely little boutique. This one is geared a little more perhaps towards me.
Except for these beautiful hand dyed wools.
I don’t knit and my crochet is pathetic, but C knits, and loved the warm, earthy tones.
This is more my style. And looks very much like the inside of my closet. 😀
This little boutique has so many beautiful things. I can see this will be a great stop on our Christmas shopping week.
And especially for prezzies for our little ones, Binky, Bunny and Ziggy.
Has everyone already thought of or even done their Christmas shopping? I’ve started to get organised, but just barely.
Sharing with Judith and the Mosaic bunch. 😀
