At my favourite end of Whyte Avenue there’s a wondrous little shop full of antique treasures, fresh flowers, and the. best. chocolate. EVER; this little slice of heaven is called Maven & Grace. Kathy Sharp, the owner, has a magnificent eye for well designed pieces and curates the shop with an eclectic assortment of goods spanning the decades. Maven & Grace is constantly shape shifting with new items being added continuously. This shop is one that you should visit weekly as things come and go as quickly as cherry blossom season.
There’s a perfect balance of new and old offerings – Pura Botanicals, Provence Apothecary, and Sydney Hale Co. are just a few options from their selection of boutique beauty goods.
COMPARTES is a Los Angeles based chocolate company with arguably the best packaging of all time. Besides the cute exterior, it’s on my top 5 best chocolate bars I’ve had to date. As far as I know, this is the only place in Edmonton that sells this brand.
