After a brief visit to New Westminster's River Market I discovered that this is a special place to visit. River Market is a lovely location for shopping for food, flowers, independent stores, it is like a mini version of Granville Island's market. There is a great seating area outside overlooking the river, watching the tug boats. There is a piano sitting waiting for someone to play. There is a fabulous food court that has some great food.
When I was there I came across several stands showing off handmade jewelry, pins, hairs clips, hats etc. I could not resist getting a few items for myself and my girls from Chlona Art. The hair clips will be great on my girls and they grey pin will look lovely on jackets or coats. Some of the jewelry was reasonably priced and I wish I had bought some necklaces, ankle bracelets and the like. Maybe next time I go I will pick up some more goods.
