Three new spots turning heads across the west.
Sunja Link Body Shoppe
Vancouver-based designer Sunja Link’s recently launched boutique is both a fashion-and-beauty oasis and a local spa retreat. The Main Street shop, which carries Link’s eponymous line of comfy womenswear, is home to a wealth of hard-to-find products—think soothing skin balms, Japanese bath soaks and algae extract–infused shampoos—that are meant to make you look chic and feel good. On-site massages, facials and waxes are available, too.
The Raven’s Room
Discerning locavores should be familiar with the Raven’s Room: the expertly curated home-wares-and-gifts shop began as an online store in 2017 before opening a bricks-and-mortar outpost at the Shoppes at the Devenish. There, find the same quirky artisan items—some from around the world—that you’ve come to love from the locally owned biz, including adorable fox-shaped mugs, honeysuckle-scented candles, and throw pillows adorned with silhouettes of bears.
One of the country’s go-to sources for affordable prescription glasses—consider it the Canadian Warby Parker—has landed on the West Coast with five stores in B.C. and Alberta. The omnichannel Montreal-based brand specializes in stylish frames for men and women—from ombré cat-eyes to oversized aviators to vintage-inspired wire rims—and employs in-house opticians who help shoppers find their perfect fit.
