This is amazing. This is really and TRULY amazing!


Have you ever heard of a “pop up shop” that donates 100% of it’s net profits to wonderful local charities? (And has beautiful and amazing merchandise from local businesses that you would totally buy?)

I stopped by Capers in Kit’s today for lunch and while on the patio sadly noticed that Duthies Books had closed down. 😦
I looked a little closer and saw that a ‘pop up shop’ was going to be temporarily taking over the space. I looked in the window and saw beautiful household furnishings, art, clothes…all sorts of things.
I went inside and was told the place wasn’t opening until June 2 but that all of the profits were going to two wonderful children’s charities that I happen to love!
And Canucks for Kid’s Fundhttp://canucks.nhl.com/club/page.htm?bcid=44
This is hard to believe but it’s completely cool and legit!

What a wonderful concept!

The place will only be open for 4-6 weeks so I suggest getting down very soon!
I may do my Holiday shopping early this year just to be able to partake!
The exact location is 2239 W 4th Ave right next to Capers (where Duthie’s Books used to be) 4th Avenue, just E of Vine.
Make sure you check it out. I’ll be seeing you there!
