#Consume Vancouver – a Revolution Just in Time for Christmas

Yes…in response to #occupy, why not boost that local economy and inspire hires by #consuming YVR?  Because christmas shopping is the best!!  Records, kitchen tools, liquor, books.  I’ve already bought a killer gift for one of the two gift-games my family engages in over boozy-eggnogs by the fire – it’s “arty” and “local,” and dare I say “culturally significant”… I’m excited, but since my parents (sometimes) read this, I won’t drop any more hints.

In order to properly #Consume, one must either shop locally, or purchase online goods directly from an artist.

Some Ideas…

We’ll start with the priciest item, for the truly 1% – An Art Globe by Wendy Gold – the Holiday Ordering Deadline is December 1st.

The coolest terrariums and other naturalistic-wares from the Old Faithful Shop in Gastown… click for more.

How about some of local band We Are the City’s tunes, who rocked an intimate and awesome show at the most recent #pknvan last Thursday…

Or some of the glorious giftware from Moule on 4th Ave, like this Jonathan Adler Squirrel Ring Holder.

Boy, that was fun.
