Granville Island: The Big Market Granville Island Shopping Review

Granville Island isn't just one shop, it's many. There are more than just shops down here, there is the Emily Carr Institute for Art and Design, as well as the Arts Club Theatres. (plural) Opus-art supplies, a few restaurants and pubs, the Granville Island Market, and many smaller shops. You can easily spend an entire day down here and find something interesting to occupy yourself. If you have children with you, perfect. There is the very large; Kids Only Market. As you first enter Granville Island, this will be one of the first buildings you come across. (This is the large building you can see in my opening shot)
Check it out, take it in, it's a lot of fun. You won't be disapointed. I promise.

Under - Select An Appropriate Type For This Shop: I chose Other. You could include everything listed.

What to buy: Skies the limit when it comes to this Island Market; too many to list here. Open up the link attached to give you a better idea.

What to pay: Various Prices

Directions: Head East along 4th avenue, until you are at the Granville Street Bridge, make a left at the light and follow the traffic. Just be concerned with finding Granville St. Bridge and the rest is easy.

The Children involved - Vancouver

The Children involved

On-Line or by mail: Fantastic Documentaries to see

What to buy:

The film is called: Born into Brothels, and it is one of the most touching documentaries anyone has ever filmed. Zana Briski and Ross Kauffman are the makers of this incredible work, It concerns a small group of children in Calcutta, who's mothers are prostitutes, it deservedly won an oscar award. Briski, a photographer, gives each child a camera and teaches them how to take pictures, causing them to look at their world with new eyes. Humorous and heartfelt, the film reveals the power of art and how beauty can be found in the most unlikely of places. Winner of ten major film festival prizes, including the 2004 Sundance Audience Award for Best Documentary. The people in New York, handling my order had a few problems, with their orders and had a few minor complaints from disatisfied customers, but I was completely satisfied with my order. Because of complaints by some people, I was offered the DVD for the same price as the CD, so now I own the DVD.
