What are you up to this weekend? If you’re craving an inner city adventure, I highly recommend spending a few hours exploring Calgary’s colourful East Village Junction — tucked away behind the iconic King Edward Hotel on the corner of 4th Street and 8th Ave SE. EV’s liveliest lot showcases the vibrancy and charisma of Calgary’s oldest neighbourhood in an innovative, market-like community space where 15 local businesses and artisans have utilized shipping containers to create an entirely unique retail experience in Calgary’s core.
Discover all #evJunction has to offer during the summer months (in 2018, the Retail Park runs until September 3) — complete with unique wares for fashion, art, vintage and home decor enthusiasts, food trucks, delicious vegan eats, bicycle rentals, live performances and yes… even fitness classes! There’s something for everyone at Calgary’s East Village Junction Pop-up Retail Park — and today I’m sharing a handful of my favourite things to see, do, shop and eat!
I’ve always joked that I can shop anywhere. But my family and friends will tell you that really is true! While I have my favourite major retailers, as someone with eclectic personal style, I also live for the hunt. You know, the thrill of finding that one-of-a-kind piece, or offbeat item? Whether it be for my wardrobe, home or kitchen, I love to seek out the extraordinary. At East Village Junction, I did just that — and today, you’re coming along!
