This store is about more than cashmere sweaters. Everything in it, for women and men, is made of luxuriously soft cashmere from Mongolia and Nepal. The Black Goat line includes cashmere hoodies, scarves, shawls, capes, hats, and sweaters in an array of sumptuous colors and designs.
You can find all the standard designer names in Vancouver’s retail outlets, but if you’re looking for something unique to British Columbia and the Pacific Northwest, head to one of the two branches of this gallery dedicated to the work of First Nation artists. Here you’ll find outstanding examples of the wood carving the coastal tribes are known for: masks, boxes, totems, oars. They also have prints and stone carvings and sculptures. Everything sold here is of exceptional quality. Their Gastown location is at 312 Water Street.
A new addition to Giovane Café and Winebar at the Fairmont Pacific Rim, this small deli-market features fine handcrafted food products from Italy and British Columbia, all hand-selected by the hotel’s chef.
