Glorious shoes, purses and clothing are just one or two Skytrain stops away!
One of the greatest things about Vancouver is the shopping. Man is it awesome! Unfortunately, hubby didn’t enjoy it as much as I did, but tried not to complain too much when I dragged him into every second store. Vancouver salesclerks also tend to be a little more ‘engaged’ then their Ottawan counterparts and more than once I found myself in a change room with an employee flinging more clothes at me saying:
“You should try this on too…oh and this..and this…and this”.
Out of politeness and trying to be more openminded, I would try on their suggestions, but didn’t actually buy any of them. (Turns out super tight booty shorts just aren’t my thing. Who knew? Oh yah, me! LOL)
The place was packed and hot as hell! But Quackers was super sweet and such a great conversationalist. We ate lots of yummy food and enjoyed the songs of a local guitarist.
Naam also has some really cool t-shirts, but none were in my size, so I wasn’t able to purchase any. Boo! After dinner, Q told us about a really cool book store-Banyen Books– and clothing store that we had to go to, so we walked on over to them. The bookstore was chock full of neat stuff and I found a book that I’ve been meaning to buy for awhile now. (Check out the link!) The dress store was unfortunately closed, but I did take a picture of the gorgeous dress in the front window.
After marching and sweating, we hopped on a bus and soon parted ways. When hubby and I finally got back to our hotel room, it was around 11pm and we slopped down into our bed-Full of food and happy.
