If not all, then the majority of their item are Canadian made. It was so hard to walk out with all the items I fell in love with. The items are fairly priced & for the budget traveler on up.

We visit this store every time we visit Banff . They care a variety of Canadian products with lots of creativity. Value reasonable and there is even usually a couple of sales on some items. Nice selection of Northwest Indian jewelry from BC.
