150-3580 Moncton St, Richmond, BC V7E 3A4

This unusual store combines the elegant minimalism of Japan with the lush sophistication of Europe. Luxurious notebooks and pens from the finest Swiss, Italian and French design houses share the cozy-yet-uncluttered space with beautiful bath and body products, including scents from Tokyo Milk and Library of Flowers. Choose some unusual teas to sip on while jotting down inspired ideas with your newfound stationery.

Prickly Pear Garden Centre The

12311 No. 1 Rd, Richmond, BC V7E 1T6

For a unique shopping experience, Prickly Pear is hard to beat. This low-ceilinged garden center places unique home wares – such as mirrors, ornaments and storage – next to beautiful plants and flowers. It’s a botanical garden of pretty things. A superb location for gifts, the Centre is even better for unusual items to brighten your own apartment or home. Don’t forget to find the tame black cat overseeing the store, often found fast asleep on the counter next to the till.

The Fab Pad

3580 Moncton Street, Richmond, BC V7E 3A5

Whereas most shops in Steveston are brimming with products, The Fab Pad is minimal and spacious – which matches its aesthetic as a furniture and accessory store for mid-century modern design. The shop sells and restores furniture, but it’s still a worthy stop for those looking for smaller gift items. Don’t miss the gorgeous variety of glassware and decor – or “the details” as The Fab Pad calls them.
