Commercial Street (yup, you read that right!) is a hidden gem that focuses on local and independent services and shops, which makes it quaint and charming like a small town.
If you’re looking for a creative and unique floral arrangement for your home, or a table centre piece for the holidays then you may want to visit Arbutus Florist. 4292 Commercial St.
Get a custom made, one-of-a-kind design made from reclaimed, salvaged, wind-fallen and beach-combed wood. The cedar sachets will make your closets smell wonderful, and the wooden plant boxes are perfect for an indoor herb garden or succulent collection. 3567 Commercial St.
Second Nature Home Boutique is a cozy shop that showcases local artisans. Handmade textiles, pottery, jewellery, food preserves, paintings, organic soaps and laundry detergents can be purchased here. If you buy the laundry detergent you can get the bottle refilled to reduce plastics that end up in a landfill. 3565 Commercial St.
Get your pooch pampered while you browse the shops and relax at the cafes along Commercial Street. Spa Dog Organic Dog Spa uses only organic ingredients for gentle grooming. 3471 Commercial St.
With many Vancouverites living in tight spaces you may not have the room to store your own tools for gardening or household projects. Enter the Vancouver Tool Library which offers its members access to leasing the tools they need to get the job done. 3448 Commercial St.
