Pet products, rainwear and awesome shoes are on tap this month.
Online pet-supply shop Good Boy’s first brick-and-mortar boutique carries modern, responsibly made products for cats and dogs. Think curvy beechwood beds, fun fish-shaped chew toys and tiny four-legged-friendly raincoats, plus pet-focused books and magazines for humans, too. Look out for local designers such as Brick Brick Ceramics (maker of bespeckled dog bowls) and Mountain Mutt (producer of colourful, stink-proof leashes). shopgoodboy.com
Heart and Sole, a local boutique beloved for its eclectic stock of quality, from-around-the-world shoes, has opened a second shop. Situated across from the original store on trendy Fort Street, Heart and Sole Too sells funky patterned legwear, waxed-canvas handbags and other accessories, as well as handmade apparel from West Coast names like High Road Clothing and Jessica Redditt Design. heartandsoleshoes.ca
The first Canadian store from Danish rainwear company Rains offers head-to-toe protection from precipitation thanks to a range of unisex jackets, pants and accessories that come in shades like lilac, mint and highlighter yellow. (Though neutral hues like olive and grey are available for the colour-shy, too.) Rains weirdly doesn’t make umbrellas, but who needs ’em when the label’s waterproof goods look this sleek? rains.com
