When I was in Vancouver about a month ago I took a trip to Deep Cove. Oh what a strange and lovely place it was! It looked like somewhere straight from David Lynch’s mind. Dim light, towering mountains, calm reflective waters, and an ever-presence of fog. It was so beautiful and mysterious.
Within the small handful of shops on the main drag I found Sunnyside. What a bright gem on this 2-block shopping strip! Upon entering, I was immediately engulfed in the most wonderful scent – a medley of all the handmade candles, teas, bath salts, and soaps on the shelves. I visited that shop 3 times while in Deep Cove (I was only there for a day trip) and I purchased many lovely things to bring home.
They make their own candles, bath salts, and soaps in scents inspired by the Cove. Taking a deep breath of any in their collection relaxes my whole body immediately. Along with those beautifully scented goods, they create and sell their own tea blends and have them all for sale in the shop, tea leaves or tea latte style. They also carry beautiful hand crafted pottery, inspiring books, and sweet planters. I stocked my bags full, and will need to replenish in time for Christmas.
