‘Tis the season to... Shop Local!

Shop Local with The Social Agency

We really love being part of the Port Moody community which is why we are so happy to be working with the lovely team at Shop Local Port Moody. You can check out their site for some great recos on local businesses to support over the holidays. Below are some of our own recos for shopping locally this year.


  • A gift card to the gorgeous Wildflower Beauty Bar tops our personal lists. The Facial Gua Sha Treatment sounds especially divine… (hint hint).


  • Need to impress a foodie on your list? Eden West is a great place to go for all your gourmet requirements.


  • We recently popped by Willow and Wallflower and were quite smitten with their amazing inventory of local jewelry, homewares and clothing. Slightly obsessed with the beautiful macramé plant holders from Port Moody’s local Seaknotter!


  • And just at the other end of the block, the recently opened Black Sugar Coffee might just be our new go-to for refueling during the busy holiday season. Serious props on the eggnog latte.


  • Pinball Alley Vintage will satisfy those of us wanting to shop sustainably as they sell some great consigned and vintage goods and clothes. A great gift doesn’t need to be brand spankin’ new if you ask us!


  • We know, we’ve said it before: We love Brewer’s Row. No need to play favourites here- we’ll be popping by all of the local breweries at some point. First stop: Yellow Dog to pick up some growler gifts. Sampling some of their seasonal Holiday Cheer Rye & Ginger Beer may be on the agenda as well :)


  • And, last but not least…  Newport’s Village Toy Shop is bound to meet the requirements of the kids on your list (aka the holiday VIPs). Games and awesome toys galore in this tiny but delightful store.

Happy December everyone!
