Vancouver - European Importers

Now... I know Little Fox would not be happy unless I had a back alley deal... soooo... here goes. There is a hidden place in Vancouver, tucked under the Georgia Viaduct, that beary few people know about... It looks a bit scary and you have to know it is there...

It is the European Specialty Importers!!

It is cold inside (it is a warehouse)... but they have all sorts of scrumptious delicacies that you can't get at your local Safeway...

There is a whole section devoted to Chocolate!

And they also had a Christmas section...

These are Nürnberger Lebkuchen (ummm... sort of a soft gingerbread thingie).

A bit of shopping was done here!

Oh... more chocolate!!

Chocolate ladybugs (I wonder if Hammie would like these?)

And Gummi Bears!

Mama and her sister (heh-heh... caught her on camera!) walked away with oodles of stuff! I, of course, was left in the vehicle for this expedition... and in this area of town too!!!

They could have at least brought Daisy along... I'm sure her ultra-chic pink sweater would have scared away any would-be scary folks!

  1. I do love a good back alley deal, although what's up with you being stuck in the car (especially in a sketchy part of town)? So jealous.....although my roommates hinted that we might go to a specialty hot chocolate warehouse after Christmas.

    1. No food from the Balkans that I saw... lots from Germany, a bit from Holland and Austria though.

  3. That looks like one BEARY nice place to visit...Ben is beary interested in it. Jerry says it would be so easy to sneak extra items into the seKretaries shopping basket.

    1. It would be beary easy to jump down and scamper around finding things. Of course, it's always better to have an accomplice who can distract our sekrebearies from noticing the extras that get put in the basket!
