Why Port Moody is the ideal Christmas shopping destination

December 7, 2018

Our neighbourhood has lots of gems that you may not know about. On the same corner as The Stitchery is a fantastic home decor consignment store, Around My House, perfect for unique retro pieces that have been hand-picked by the owners. It’s got everything from small gifts like cushions to larger pieces of furniture and wall art.
Next door Willow and Wallflower is an artisan gift store full of beautiful one-of-a-kind Canadian gift ideas. One of our first students to come to The Stitchery, Elisabeth Charmley, is a naval photographer whose iconic black and white shots of huge tankers can be found in Willow and Wallflower. Her photographs are quirky, dramatic and evoke the nautical side of Port Moody.
Next to Willow and Wallflower is an incredible treasure trove of vintage finds called Pinball Alley. For a gift you wouldn’t find anywhere else, sift through the vinyl collection, or pick out a vintage piece of clothing. You’ll even find ET memorabilia and lava lamps, posters from decades gone by, and other pieces of twentieth century history.
To round off the perfect Christmas shopping trip, you’ll find one of the best ice cream parlours in the lower mainland, Rocky Point Ice Cream, in Rocky Point Park. It’s ideally located for wandering with your cone out onto the dock. Or check in to one of the craft brew pubs along Brewers Row and sample a local draft.
These are just a few of the many reasons to shop and relax in Port Moody this season.
