Chef Claire's Home Is in the Kitchen. Chef Claire curates her stock of scrumptious non-perishable foods ― think crackers and flatbreads ― with a focus on small, regional brands. Check out her line of rubs, spices, and cures. 3610 Main St.; 604/875-6400.

Eugene Choo. Up-and-coming and local designers stock the men's and women's racks at this spare boutique, where styles range from grown-up skateboarder to a more structured European look. 3683 Main St.; 604/873-8874.

Flower Factory. Combat winter grays with delicate Singapore orchids, and while you're at it, browse the in-store gallery of paintings and photography. 3604 Main St.; 604/871-1008.

The Regional Assembly of Text. Note-paper, cards, and ready-to-hang chalkboards ― all of them handmade by the owners with a healthy dash of typewriter-era irony. 3934 Main St.; 604/877-2247.
