Collage Collage Storefront
Oh how I wish Collage Collage would have been around when my son was younger. Erin Boniferro and her staff make this special little small business a magical place on earth (on and offline). I love too, how she’s adapted to the times right now, offering online classes for the littles and turning to Instagram with free storytime videos of much-loved books. (Even I have tuned in from time to time —shhhhh)!
From exquisitely curated books to unique art supplies, and workshops, this little shop located in the Mount Pleasant area of Vancouver inspires us to plug in the glue gun and make something dazzling. They also have an online web shop so whether you live locally or not, you can still order unique gifts for kids online, and either have them shipped or set up for pick up. Shall we take a look?

Beautiful art supplies!) online so that people from far and wide can finally have a Collage Collage experience. Locals can shop on line and pick up at our door.
