Such a beautiful town - and yet here, 100 years ago, thousands of innocent men were held as "enemy aliens" - I went in and said a prayer to their memory.

What a breath of fresh air this store was! Gifts made by local artists. Something for everyone: soaps, artwork, wooden plaques, cards, etc. Very pretty just to look at. Like One of A Kind in Toronto, on a smaller scale. Lovely shop!

Some of the shops offer the same goods but this was a little different. Spacious and nicely laid out, not cheap but nice goods.

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.

The About Canada shop is located along Banff Ave. We decided to check out the shop because we like to support places with locally made souvenirs. The souvenirs were nice, but slightly on the expensive side. The metal animal sculptures were very cute, but were...More

This store has a wide variety of beautiful prints and artwork as well as souvenirs that are different from those found at other shops. It is a great place to go to if you would like a special souvenir of Banff.

Bought a rustic metal bear sculpture here for $35. Drooled over a large metal sculpture of the forest. Lovely prints of all styles. Beautiful paintings. Jewelry...a great selection of quality merchandise that is definitely worth a look!
