On Sunday I went to the Home + Design Show at BC Place and while I didn’t see much I liked in the way of houseware, I did fall in love with a local Vancouver company, The Hive Printing.

There were quite a few things I wanted to buy, but I settled on the following:


1937 City of Vancouver Map shirt

I got mine in a maroon colour but it was also available in a blue. Get yours here if you’re interested.

Downtown Vancouver Archival Map Canvas Tote

I also got this awesome tote bag. I’ve been meaning to get a tote but could never find the right one that didn’t look like it was trying too hard. This one fit the bill well though. Love it.

You should take the time to explore the store; there’s lots of other lovely stuff on there, including some tea towels I’m seriously regretting passing on.
