When we were at Granville Island, I visited an awesome paper shop, Paper Ya. I could have spent ages browsing! It was one of those shops that you buy things just becuase they look so pretty up on the shelf! I came away with a cute little purse and some pretty paper.

It inspired me to get back into market stalls...or dreaming even own bricks and mortar shop. I'd love to stock paper goods, party products all in a beautiful building with pretty decor. Maybe even mixed in with some baked that would be perfect! I've even got a store front Pinterest board of inspiration. Do you have a store-front dream? What would it look like?

  1. I've always dreamt of having my own vintage boutique. I have an online business but there is something magic about walking into a beautiful store and laying eyes on an item that you just HAVE to have but never knew it until that very moment.

  2. Oh look at all that goodness I would of loved to have a good look around that shop I think I would of been in there for ages too.. Oh yes I have dreamt of doing up a old little church or old building and running my own little shop.. Miss you sweetheart and thought of you as had a little catch up with Linda today.. Big kisses sending your way..xoxo Daneve

  3. Yes I have a store front dream......but to much hard work for me at the moment, maybe when the kids are bigger :)

  4. I am so glad Pinterest brought me to you!
    Paper Ya is my absolutely FAV store on granville!
    I'm from the island so whenever I get over to the mainland I make a point to head to granville for that store! I've been going since I was a kid and spend about a good hour in there each time.

  5. I love the idea of a converted space like the Church or even a warehouse or something. So much character! : )
