On October 15th at 5pm, peach balloons will appear along Gastown’s sidewalks. Each bundle marks the entrance of a participating boutique, with music, treats and special promotions beyond. There are more than forty shops in the mix this season – and eleven restaurants ready to serve you before, during and after you’ve shopped and dropped.
Shop Hop is the perfect time to visit your favourite shops and discover what’s new in one of the world’s most stylish neighbourhoods (seriously, you can Google that). Each season, the eclectic mix of independent boutiques bring together exclusive labels and local designers, drawing the style savvy to Gastown for the latest looks. Whether you need eyewear, accessories, shoes or everything in between, mark your calendar and come down to mix, mingle and reinvent your style.
Gastown is also home to a variety of furniture and decor boutiques, making Shop Hop the perfect event for those who want home base to be as well dressed as they are.
Plan to gather your friends and head to Gastown next Thursday night for a night of fashion, design and dining with the city’s finest. And don’t forget to share your #GastownShopHop moments on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook!
