The City of Vancouver is a lovable place which is why people write songs that praise its glory and create artwork, t-shirts, and crafts that share its wit, charm, and practicality. From Vancouver-themed Valentine’s Day cards and Vancouver We Love You shirts, to my friend Preston’s isometric Vancouver design series as seen in my blog’s header. I browsed Etsy, the popular e-commerce website for handmade and vintage items, to find more nifty products that boast the goodness of the 604:

If you’re in Vancouver, you can find more great local gifts at shops on Main Street, Commercial Drive, and in Gastown but the benefit of Etsy is its worldwide reach. Prices listed are not guaranteed, they are from the day the screenshot was taken. Listing here is not an endorsement for the seller. I just thought these were all pretty neat!
