New Favourite Store - Spruce Collective

There's a new store in the Fraser Valley and this one instantly became a favourite! When I first heard about it, I thought it would be sort of like Miss Mustard Seed's Lucketts. While it's not exactly that idea (there are no vendor booths), it is a cool cool store! When I walked in I thought, hey this reminds me of the Fieldstone Vintage Market! Sure enough, Spruce Collective is owned by 5 of the vendors from that market.

This store is sensory overload for vintage lovers. They also have a rental section, so you can rent vintage furniture and wares for your wedding or other event. There's a lovely, pretty classroom in the back with wall to wall windows for lots of natural light and a sweet little kitchen, too. There will be a full line up of classes starting soon including a felt wreath (hello, pinterest!), furniture painting, making slipcovers and more.

What did I buy? Well, I had to show a lot of constraint since I didn't bring my U-haul or my no-limit credit card. ;-) But, I went away with an adorable owl planter/vase? Either way, its got a hole in its head so I might plant a succulent in it. Then I found their knobs! All different beautiful vintagey glass knobs. I picked up 4 small ones for the sewing machine cabinet I showed you the other day. They were only $3 each! And, I got birthday cards for my sisters. They are cute, and of course... vintage.

I love how they take the time to wrap your purchases in tissue and put them in an adorable brown bag tied with twine. They even put the knobs in a cute little muslin draw string bag.















There's even a neat play room for the kiddies! Look at that floor to ceiling chalk board. How fun.


I know you're dying to check out this store, so I better let you know where it's located! They've taken over what used to be Quilt Essentials on Montrose in Abbotsford.
