Shop Local this Christmas

Calgary has a thriving small business sector that we always like to encourage people to check out. It is important to support small local businesses and the Calgarian's that pour their hearts into them, especially this year as many Calgary businesses have faced loses due to COVID-19. As they say, when you shop from a big box store, a CEO doesn't blink twice. When you shop from a small business, the owner does a little happy dance. Support a fellow Calgarian this Christmas by buying your holiday gifts from one of these local shops:

  • Outside The Shape: A curated shop with items from local YYC makers. You can find everything from candles to jewelry to workshops here!
  • Plant: Your succulent dreams will come true in his gorgeous shop featuring all sorts of gardening, terrarium, decor and outdoor items. 
  • The Calgary Farmer's Market: This market has everything, from food to home goods. They are decked out for Christmas and are home base for many local makers. Browse their Christmas market to find unique goodies you can't find anywhere else!
  • The Livery Shop: If you're looking for local apparel, this shop carries it all. Shop for the hip outdoor enthusiast here, and say hello to their puppy!
  • Main street Bowness: There are many small local shops in Bowness that we love to support. Their quality and customer service is top notch! 
  • Steeling Home: Perfect for the person that is impossible to buy for, this home goods store has the cutest, most random selection of products. They're located right across the road from Made by Marcus, too! So you can shop and then reward yourself with some ice cream. 
  • Righteous Gelato: This sweet company was featured on Dragon's Den and sells gift cards, an easy get for that person you know who loves sweet treats.
