Homewares in Kitsilano & University of British Columbia

If your to-buy list includes taxidermy, vintage cameras and old hotel matchbooks, this cleverly curated, highly browsable shop is the place for you. Among the new and used trinkets, homewares and accessories, look out for old pulp-fiction paperbacks and yesteryear postcards of historic Vancouver. There are usually far more people looking than buying; this place almost feels like a museum.

It's a great place to pick up weird and wacky alternative souvenirs; there are also cool greeting cards and brilliant retro posters.
