New In East Van – Giving Gifts & Company

15 May


Things have been percolating along in one little reclaimed retail space on Main Street.  4570 Main Street is the home of a new co-operative store called Giving Gifts & Company (Main & 30th Avenue).  It opened its doors officially on April 6th and on May 2nd had a very successful grand opening.   Giving Gifts & Company started as a pop up shop and is now a unique concept in retail. It is a co-operative store made of variety of local vendors and artisans.   There are 2 regular vendors and stakeholders in this co-operative. Firstly, Lisa Pozin of Giving Gifts which sells fair trade and eco-friendly items many of  which make perfect gifts for children.  Secondly, Lesley Morris of Upscale Swag on Main  which sells some beautiful clothing and hand bags from designers in Los Angeles and New York as well as exclusive one of a kind fashion jewellery.

The remainder of the shop comprises of a number of rotating vendors, the number of which may vary, at present there are 9.  There is quite an array of items.   Currently on hand are vintage clothing, shoes and accessories by Clare’s Collectibles, some amazing chocolates by Cocoa Nymph Chocolates, handmade kids clothing including bamboo baby blankets by Little MoSo, antique collectibles by Once Twice Vintage Design, stunning colourful artwork by Julia DiSano of Ebi Emporium and Green With Envy which specializes in air plants in well-designed terrariums. Then there is jewellery by Earth Essence Jewellery.  Certainly a little bit of something for everyone.   The rotating vendors are there generally for one month at a time, but some may be there for longer. It does mean there will always be something in different in store.  This new co-operative is an amazing opportunity for local artisans to get some exposure.  The store is open 6 days a week Tuesday to Saturday from 11:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m., Sunday from Noon to 5:00 p.m. and closed Mondays.    Definitely worth stopping by and taking a look.
