Hot Shop: The Found & The Freed

August 12, 2015

shopSchool-house chalkboards, burnished wood furnishings, posters, globes, giant mounted fish, all manner of quirky stools, chairs and footrests and assorted vintage paraphernalia make The Found & The Freed the perfect place to spend an afternoon hunting for your next household gem.

This antique décor store is filled with amazing, special pieces founders Lindsay Burke and Ainsley McIntyre travel all over (Oregon, California, Alberta, Montana) to capture and bring back to Vancouver. Their small, sunlit retail space (you can’t miss its red paint job and striped awning) also stocks beautifully designed new items, like Extos lamps (a lamp-socket-extension-cord perfect for bedside tables). Everything is of a stylish high standard (no rifling here); you can even find little locally made honey and caramels to cutely top off a vintage housewarming gift.

Go see what you can find and free. —Adrienne Matei
