SUPPORT LOCAL NOVEMBER
What we’re calling Support Local November is about getting to know the business owners, retailers, restaurants, and charities in our own backyard. Every Friday, for the month of November, we’re showcasing a few of our favourite businesses around Downtown Abbotsford in hopes that you take a moment to think about what we can all do to support our community.
Shopping and experiencing local is the act of everyday folks, making the decision to support your fellow community, rather than purchasing from large retailers. Every week we will be highlighting a different kind of business you can find in Downtown Abby.
Be sure to tune in every Friday to check out what’s happening!
BUREAUX MODERN MERCANTILE
It’s that time of year where Christmas decor starts popping up and we all begin thinking about what the people we love, love the most! The temptation of hopping on Amazon to order those last-minute things can be strong, but it’s important, now more than ever, to look closer to home this season.
Let’s support the people whose hearts do a little dance when they make a sale, let’s support our local neighbours!
WHERE WE SHOP LOCAL
Quality goods + essentials with the traditional charm and modern design of many current-day European mercantiles and cafés. A Field House alum, Kendra and her sister, Jami, seek out unique and beautiful objects that can be enjoyed for years to come.
Dear to our hearts and co-owned by Monica + Lily (one of our favourite’s + a crew member’s mom), Spruce is a curated collection of local items with a maker-story behind them alongside eclectic vintage finds and quality goods that will stand the test of time.
Clothing for your family. Kindred Clothing is a local design studio and home to the incredible line, Little & Lively. A Canadian-made ethical children’s clothing line offering high-quality, stylish garments for you and your little ones. Owned by dream team, Carmen + Jordan, be sure to say hi when you pop in to browse!

A rad shop down the street from Field House on West Railway, Replay has been around as long as we can remember. With an awesome selection of premium skateboarding and snowboarding equipment, clothing and shoes, go check it out!
New to the scene, LFS is committed to bringing you 100% local BC products and supports Farms, Artisans and Producers in BC.
