Hello and welcome!

We are Shop Small Vancouver. What started as a shower thought in December of 2020 is now an online directory, social purpose-focused brand, fundraising resource hub, small business booster, and all around internet happy place. Right now we’re focused on building out our directory with micro to mid sized small businesses.

We believe:

  • every dollar circulated within the local economy goes further than a dollar given to a corporation
  • there is great power and strength in local community, in mutual aid, in neighborhoods to organize, bolster, and support one another
  • artists + creators + artisans + makers should be paid what they deserve 
  • the city known as “Vancouver” has an incredibly rich Indigenous history that deserves to be acknowledged and recognized
  • trans lives matter. black lives matter. asian lives matter. disabled lives matter. this is a space where all are welcome, where hate is not tolerated, and where we open our doors and arms to people, regardless of who they love, what they look like, or where they come from. if you love and respect people, we love you!

I’ve always been a big dreamer, and this project is no exception. As we grow, there will be gift guides, industry-specific directories (think weddings!), a variety of content about a variety of topics, and hopefully – one day – we’ll even host some events of our own.

I can’t wait to see where the future takes us. 

Your neighbor,
