From First Nations artworks to smoked salmon and quirky clothing designed by the city’s up-and-coming fashionistas, Vancouver has a basket full of tempting and original shopping options for visitors. And it’s not just souvenirs that will fill your suitcase; the city is divided into several distinctive shopping areas, each with their own specialities. And once you’ve finished scratching your shopping itch, Vancouver’s spas offer a relaxing way to wind-down and contemplate your upcoming credit card bill.
Clothing-wise, the city offers a great selection of home-grown outdoor togs, but there’s also been a wide-ranging evolution “from fleece to fashion” here in recent years. On your shopping weave around the city, look out for these popular Vancouver labels, stores and designers: lululemon, Arc’Teryx, John Fluevog, Twigg & Hottie, Lynn Steven Boutique and Smoking Lily.
