La Vida Local is a feature aimed at connecting you with some of the best foods and goods within Vancouver. When you buy local, you’re not just supporting these individuals, but also helping to grow and sustain the local community.
The beautiful and modern Scott Landon Antiques will be hosting local clothing company, Power Of My People‘s first ever pop-up shop. From their humble beginnings of making shirts in their apartment, founders Kyle Kozma and Jessica Matthew have moved on up to having their signature women’s casual button-up shirts manufactured locally.
To contribute to community development, Power Of My People is also partnering up with Dress for Success, a non-profit that provides professional attire and development tools to empower women entering the workplace. Anyone who visits the pop-up shop are invited to drop off any women’s spring and summer professional clothes and accessories and for any piece donated, customers will be entered to win a free Power Of My People shirt in addition to other prizes donated by local business. Ten dollars from each shirt will also be donated to the non-profit organization.
I also highly recommend checking out their People Series that features local artists of all mediums. Each story is so wonderfully executed in its visuals and layout. And to celebrate everyone they’ve highlighted in the series, a beautiful wall collage will be in the shop featuring each individual.
From May 14th – 17th Power Of My People will be hosting their pop-up shop at Scott Landon’s Antiques on 2341 Granville St from 10am – 8pm each day.
