AN HOUR TO SHOP
Calgary is home to a cornucopia of centrally located shopping districts, each with a unique personality — which one is right for your one-stop shopping needs?
For the Creative: Kensington is forever bustling with artsy events to take in. Shop the Peacock Boutique (page 41) or Mañana Imports and Gifts (mananaimports.com) to procure some eclectic oddities.
For the Nostalgic: Calgary’s “Original Main Street” Inglewood is steeped in sentimentality, with a huge record store Recordland (page 43), century-old candy shop Olivier’s (page 42), and shaving boutique Kent of Inglewood (page 45).
For the Trendy: 17th Avenue has everything from high fashion at Gravitypope (page 43) to consignment at Used House of Vintage (page 40).
For the Quaint-of-Heart: Offering an atmosphere that is relaxed and on-trend, Marda Loop features an urban dog market, bevy of beautiful flower shops, Monkeyshines Children’s Books (page 39), and Pip’s Board Game Café (page 51).
