Umeboshi Shoes

Umeboshi founder, Stephanie Gorrell, has been supplying the city with its most stylish shoes and wares since 2005. Located in the Riley Park neighborhood of Main Street, this breezy little boutique offers a curated buy of brands such as Martiniano, Maryam Nassir Zadeh and Rachel Comey. There’s also a tight edit of publications such as The Gentlewoman and Elephant, ceramics by Maggie Boyd and fragrance from Apoteker Tepe.

Nouvelle Nouvelle

With two locations in the city – Mount Pleasant and Gastown – Nouvelle Nouvelle offers an eclectic mix of urban brands such as Wood Wood, Samsoe Samsoe and Sessun, for both men and women. Its lifestyle boutiques offer tongue-in-cheek jewellery from In God We Trust, handbags by Kara, locally made candles and heady scents from Maison Louis Marie.

Litchfield

With a dark, moody aesthetic and bare brick walls this narrow, two-floor store in Gastown is the epitome of cool. Glossy wooden shelves showcase everything from Cereal magazine to handcrafted kitchen utensils, candles and artisanal chocolate bars. Perfect for a grown-up souvenir from the West Coast.
