gastown | Spend Locally | Vancouver

Business Owner(s): 

When I started working on the edge of Gastown in the early spring, I had noticed Nuba across the street--kinda hard to tell what was going on there from the outside, but my workmates insisted it was a good place. But you see, I can hardly eat ANYWHERE. I've got a shwack (yes, a schwack) of food allergies, and it is incredibly difficult for me to find any restaurants where I can eat more than just salad.

RIP | Spend Locally | Vancouver

More specifically, I lived right across the alley from this fantastic little independent movie rental shop on Denman, called Independent Flixx. I lived in the West End for a few years when I first moved into Vancouver proper, until just over a year ago. Never before or again have I been so close to such an amazing selection of movies - they had it all. They had a whole shelf of Canadian films in fact, something I've never found anywhere else.

pottery | Spend Locally | Vancouver

Back then, she was the project manager, and I was getting my feet wet in the world of web development. She spent tons of time working in the studio she used, and even taught some pottery classes. Nowadays, I'm working as a project manager, and she's making beautiful pottery. Even back when Melanie and I worked together, her true love was pottery. I met Melanie at my first big-girl job (outside of academia).
