Ah, another weekend has come and gone. After a long week of pouring rain and a packed schedule, I was so excited for Saturday to come around. We lucked out again with another gorgeous day of sunshine and opportunity to explore new places and old favourites. A first stop this weekend was the Savary Island Pie Company, a beautiful bakery and pie shop in West Vancouver which I frequent often. The space is unique, with an open kitchen, chalkboard menus, perfectly mismatched furniture that's slightly beaten up (shared tables encouraged), and a real community feel. Everything is house made, locally sourced and delicious. For a late lunch, I ordered a tourtiere and a latte. The sun streamed through the window and made for the perfect afternoon.
On my way home, I noticed a store that I walk by from time to time, and finally took the time to go in and check it out. Production Road is a neat little shop selling paper goods, handcrafted candles and soaps and textiles. I briefly got to meet the husband and wife team who own the store; he a photographer and she a graphic designer who creates a lot of the products sold in house. I loved this story and all of her fun prints on the beautiful bags, paper goods and hand towels she created; and it was a wonderfully inspiring place to explore. I encourage you to stop in and check out their Lemonni line of products and other carefully curated items for sale.
