1. BUY BC – This directory is a guide to buying all BC grown, harvested or made products. The selection offers a variety of products from beverages, produce and even dog food!  Link: https://buybc.gov.bc.ca/find-bc-products/search-buy-bc-products

2. Got a chocolate craving? ZImt Chocolates, a local sweets shop on Commercial Drive offers delivery! Link: https://shopca.zimtchocolates.com/


3. Nothing says cozy like a new candle. Support You + Me Candle Co. during this difficult time by making your space a little warmer! Their selection of hand made candles and rooms sprays are essential during isolation! Link: https://www.youmecandles.com/ 

4. Spending too much time staring at your (blank, boring) walls at home? It’s time to dress them up! We love local artist Amy Stewart. Link: https://www.amystewartartist.com/

5. Support the little guys! Rather than hitting BC Liquor Store, choose to support a privately owned wine store who selects their wines with love. If you love wine you’ll love Broadway International Wine Shop! We especially appreciate how seriously they’re taking COVID-19 but no longer allowing customers to browse the store. Instead they’re offering window service, pre-order, pickup and delivery! (They also offer 10% off cases, just sayinnn’) Link: https://www.broadwaywineshop.ca/

6. Up your “chilling at home” hairdo! Local brand Supercrush offers a variety of cute but chic scrunchies. Perfect for isolation! Link: https://supercrush.com/

7. Selfcare Sunday has turned into Selfcare Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday – in order to keep up with this make sure to stock up on locally made face masks, bath soaks, rose quartz rollers and more from Midnight Paloma. Link: https://midnightpaloma.com/ 

8. Skin feeling a little blah? Consult The Skin Girls and order new skin products online! Link: https://www.theskingirls.ca/

9. Looking forward… To a day where we can enjoy social freedom and sunshine – order a pair of bamboo sunnies designed in Canada and made ethically! Link: https://www.amevie.com/shop/
