About
Artzi Stuff opened its doors in 2008 and transitioned to 2 Church Street in 2013, right in the heart of downtown Nanaimo. Our location is part of a vibrant, supportive community of business owners, residents, and customers. Our two exterior walls consist entirely of windows and whether we’re open or closed, you can see the contents of nearly the entire store though those big windows. Artzi Stuff only stocks work made by local, BC based artists, with most living on Vancouver Island. It’s not uncommon for an artist to pop in while someone is purchasing or contemplating their work, giving the customer an opportunity to meet the artist behind their new find. When you shop at Artzi Stuff I hope you take pride in knowing the products are made for passion, rather than big profits. Your money supports local artists, who will in turn spend their money in our community. I love helping a customer find unique piece that will enliven their home, or hunt out just the right gift for a loved one.

When in Nanaimo you must visit this wonderful shop featuring items by local/island artists. beautiful selection of:jewellery, carvings, glass work, paintings, clothing, pottery, ceramics and gift cards. A wonderful spot to browse, chat with the knowledgeable owner Tanya, and pick up a unique gift or memento knowing that your money is staying within this island community. A must-see in this harbour town.

I’m from Nanaimo, but I live in Toronto. You’d think the distance would help my spending in this shop, but it doesn’t! So many cute things. Wonderfully talented artists. My one stop shop for Christmas and birthdays. And To Me, Love Me gifts, of course :)

Wide variety of art items from local artisans. From greeting cards, glass work, paintings, jewellery, metal-work and anything else you could think of. Worth the time to look around.

I have three girlfriends and one daughter that have birthdays within 10 days of each other. I was short on time to find presents for all four, as well as two gifts for coworkers of mine. I knew if I went to artzi stuff I would find something, no, the PERFECT gift for all of them. I was right! Within 15 minutes I found all six gifts. Each gift was perfectly suited to each of my coworkers, friends and daughter. The unique selection, varied price range and excellent quality of the product/art for sale in this store is remarkable. They even had greeting cards to purchase that suited each recipient. This store is now my go-to for gift buying. Thanks Artzi Stuff!

Great little boutique to pop into when you want to buy gifts for your friends and family or need to spoil yourself with a new treat! Many local artisans are represented here and the quality of the items is amazing. Every time you shop here there is something new to see - even if you don't buy you will have a pleasurable time looking at the many items carried. Shopping local artists and supporting a local business owner is fun and supports our community and its creativity. I highly recommend this store!

Always a pleasure to shop here when I return to Nanaimo. The art works are unique and very reasonably priced. I always find a piece of jewellery and receive many compliments when I return home for the original nature and style of the piece.

This is my go-to store for buying gifts for friends and relatives. Most pieces are unique. I can buy lovely gifts in the $10 range. Of course, there are wonderful creations in slightly higher price range. I love it that so much of the money goes back to the individual artists, and that the store owner can support her family in such a creative way.

I sometimes struggle when pressured to find gifts for my friends of loved-ones. But I know that all I need to do is head downtown Nanaimo, and I will always find something perfect at Artzi Stuff. Thanks Tanya for providing a great space, and solutions to my challenges of showering my wife with shiny new things!
