Vancouver | The Cross

Well I am in Vancouver today - mixing a little B with P -  so I thought I would feature a favourite shop of mine in Yaletown - The Cross.  Wonderful new and vintage furniture and gifts, stationery and apothecary products. The store space is a huge brick warehouse with incredible beams and fabulous windows - which is typical of the Yaletown district in Vancouver. I think they do a wonderful job of merchandizing the store with a great mix of old and new. Their selection of striking and extravagant pillows is amazing. I love these tourquoise sheers.




The Cross Decor and Design is located at 1198 Homer St, Vancouver, BC. They have some great images on their site.
Now I am off to visit some of our Vancouver retailers, do a little shopping, take a few pictures and then have dinner at Joe Fortes tonight with the lovely Lisa { our distributor-extraordinaire! } I hope to have a post for you on Monday depending on how late we get home - have a great weekend everyone!

What a neat looking store, Fiona! It looks like a nice big loft filled with amazing treasures. Sounds like you're going to have a nice weekend. We're off to a friend's wedding this weekend in historic farm in the middle of a bustling metro area. Should be fun!

Have a great weekend Fiona! Love, love, love that mirror. It's probably best I can't see the price tag from the photo. :)

Erin, I agree - that mirror is simply stunning!

Oh oh oh... I LOVE that store! I love how when you walk across the threshold they have that beautiful mosaic cross. Yes, it is probably best that the prices are not displayed prominently ;)

Have you been to Peridot? Slightly less pink but just as feminine in a really stylin way. Both stores the girly side of me could move right into. Peridot is right off of South Granville in a nifty skinny space that has a loft done up as a bedroom with beautiful wardrobes that make you feel like you are going through the closets of one of your chicest friends.
Hmmm... maybe time for a Vancouver trip....
