Business Owner(s): 

I met Melanie at my first big-girl job (outside of academia). Back then, she was the project manager, and I was getting my feet wet in the world of web development. Nowadays, I'm working as a project manager, and she's making beautiful pottery. I don't think either of us would have predicted this, but I think it's safe to say we're both quite pleased with our respective changes in career path.

Even back when Melanie and I worked together, her true love (after her husband and two incredibly cute dachshunds) was pottery. She spent tons of time working in (and managing) the studio she used, and even taught some pottery classes. She loves it so much, that I couldn't be happier to see her now doing this as her full time gig.

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.


gastown | Spend Locally | Vancouver

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. I've got a shwack of food allergies, and it is incredibly difficult for me to find any restaurants where I can eat more than just salad. I can hardly eat ANYWHERE.
