    Awesome place. So many talented people at one place. Able to experience different mediums from multiple artists. Amazing to find original gifts for reasonable price. Once you walk in - you trully feels welcome. I agree totally - "The variety and quality of items they have makes this a fascinating place to support local artists. "
    Perfect location too - now with available parking.

    It's on the same corner as the Steam Clock in Gastown. I love sneakers so I thought I would find something cool in here. Lots of art on sneakers, wish I could buy more. I ended up buying the Cypress Hill collaboration. Love then.

    Maryann and Pousette Gallery are absolutely lovely. I have purchased three paintings from Pousette over the last few years and I'm always excited to see what new pieces and artists Maryann discovers next. She knows her clientele well and her customer service is impeccable. If asked, Maryann will give her honest and professional opinion about various works in order to guide you through the selection process. Buying original art can be an intimidating process but not with Maryann who makes it her personal mission to exceed your expectations and enjoy the experience from start to finish. If you aren't in the market to take home a piece of art, at the very least visit Pousette Gallery while in Vancouver as the breadth of their colorful collection will most certainly brighten your day!

    The gallery has been around for about 2 years, but I just found it. So glad I did. It's a bit out of the way, but well worth the visit. High quality North west coast art. I will visit it whenever I'm in Vancouver. If you love NWC art, you won't be disappointed.

    I really enjoy this place, and try and get by whenever I'm in the neighbourhood. Great staff, very helpful. For example, a few years ago I was looking for a paperback which they didn't have, so I gave them a card and asked that they phone me if one came in. Not only did they say they would do so, they directed me to their competition about a block away - how's THAT for putting the customer first? (No, they didn't have it either).
    Anyhow, about eight months later I got a phone call that my book was in. Down I went and paid about five bucks for an old paperback. To re-iterate; I call this great service. Similar experience on my recent visit. I was looking for a general subject, rather than a special book. The man took me over there and explained the filing system (yes, there really IS one).
    So, whether you have something specific in mind, or merely want to take a serendipidous journey through a garden of literature, drop by here.

    The store is super crowded and hot. Went twice during my stay in Vancouver and both times almost passed out from the heat. Turn up the AC!!!!

    Yes, the nuts are off-the-chart delicious, but the woman who helped us was just phenomenal. It was two weeks ago and I did not write down her name, so it is not accessible at this time ;>). We brought several types home. finally got into the lemon pepper cashews and immediately went online to purchase more- a lot more. We always have a great time on Granville Island, but this made our trip so special.

    Decided to see if they have any compact travel hats. I found one I sort of liked. One of the employees asked what I was looking for, and she returned with exactly what I was looking for, and the size of hat that I needed. The hat is compact, foldable, spf, and adjustable for my big head. The hat was reasonably priced around $100. Excellent customer service

    This is a very special jewelry store with hand-crafted artisan jewelry.
    Simply beautiful designs.
    I have received so many compliments on the earrings and matching necklace I bought and am very glad I made the purchase.

    My first visit to Kerrisdale market was in December 2019. I usually go downtown if travelling to Vancouver. It’s made up charming local boutiques, many Asian restaurants, bakeries, Starbucks, food markets, etc. Very charming district to enjoy a meal or coffee break.

    So my best friend and I decided to wander in and see what they had. Well they had a lot that we really loved. The girl helping us was so knowledgeable about the artists and what was local and their inspirations. The variety of items they had was amazing. I loved the help of deciding which chains to go with which pendants and the lengths. My friend and I walked out with many amazing, beautiful and unique pieces. The prices were spot on. I have received many compliments for the jewelry I bought. Thanks for the amazing customer service as well as finding me beautiful jewelry to remember my trip by.

    MEC always stocks quality gear. It does seem very expensive these days, especially considering that the place is a co-op (with tax advantages). Occasionally I find a helpful staff member, but they're often inattentive, and way too cool to be helpful. That's definitely a change, unwelcome, over the past dozen years or so. Inventory management's definitely not their strong point.
