A pop-up boutique by two upstart women and their labours of love

{Planet Claire Sustainable Fashion & Jordan River Soapworks}

434 Columbia Street  (The Chinatown Experiment)

February 8th – 14th
Noon – 8pm (closing party on the 14th, open late)

Treat yourself – or a loved one – to locally made and sourced goods, from soap to clothing, jewellery and art. Each product featured at this Boutique Pop-up is created with love (and a lot of guts, and sometimes blood – it can be terribly gorey).

Cynics, pragmatists and those of unsentimental persuasion, hold your tongues. While Valentines Day seems to elicit shudders or involuntary tics in more people than not, take a moment to breathe…Forget the commercialism, whether you are in a relationship or not, and the societal pressures to prove your undying love with either tacky stuffed animals or extravagant gifts and meals. “Love The One You’re With” is a celebration of Love in all it’s forms; your best friend, your child, your penpal…your french bulldog.

~All purchases come with a complimentary Valentine to give to a loved one, and free wrapping for any gifts~

The week will end with a party on the 14th, from 6 pm ‘till late…with fresh pie from The Pie Shoppe, champagne, and strawberries.

Bring your loved one or come and meet a new one. Canines welcome.

We believe the power of love and its ability to bring people together should be recognized, acknowledged and appreciated…And so Love Medals were created, a quietly bold way to say “thank you”.

Love Medals was founded in 2008 by Emily Carr graduate Talia Tanaka, and has grown to include numerous distinct styles of pins, earrings, bracelets, necklaces and an array ofmedals.

Individually designed and hand-crafted in Vancouver, each piece is cast in gold, silver or bronze and only the highest quality materials are used to complement the metals used. Ethical Canadian diamonds and luxurious ribbons sourced from Japan accentuate many of the pieces and we proudly abstain from using animal-based products.http://www.lovemedals.com/

The tiniest pie shop in Vancouver! Located on Gore St, right at the edge of Chinatown. The home of Panoramic Coffee Roasters and serves freshly roasted blends and delicious homemade pie.http://thepieshoppe.ca/


Daub + Design is a Vancouver based textile design studio, focusing on hand-dyed, locally produced garments. All items are unique as a limited amount of fabric is dyed and each garment is constructed individually. “Daub” is defined as the act of applying coloring material crudely to a surface. We create fabrics which have an organic element to the structure of their design through various methods of surface design.http://daubanddesign.com/
