e all know that Vancouver is the envy of the world. Our readers know why, and in this guide they’re sharing their reasons.

We encourage everyone with a smartphone or tablet to download the app to enjoy our interactive features. It’s easy: hover over a page with the Layar logo, tap the screen and then watch when, Harry Potter-like, bonus content, from videos to websites, appears on your screen.

ON THE COVER: Our cover illustrates why Colleen Miller’s whimsical boutique, Button Button, was chosen as Gastown’s hidden gem by our readers. Despite having second-generation customers and customers who come for help with all their special occasions (from newborn babies to wedding decor), and being written up in Vogue Australia, Japanese tour guides and twice in the New York Times, this is the first time the novelty shop has actually won anything. The people who come back again and again are looking for elegant solutions to their knitted scarves, craft projects, ceremonial creations, suit jackets or handme-downs. Miller is Vancouver’s resource on all things buttons, and one thing she’s learned in those 18 years is that, at one point or another, everyone needs one. —Kelsey Klassen Best of the City 2014 Pocket Guide

Parade Organics: Gold Gastown Kids’ Apparel

I

n 2004, Bern Tierney and Laura Sage created one of the first baby lines in North America to use 100 per cent GOTS-certified organic cotton. Playful and adorable, Parade’s signature nickname kimonos, onesies and baby yoga sets have been a hit at birthdays and baby showers ever since. But how did they know they were on to something great? “Enough people liked our product that we could give up our day jobs!” says Tierney. Parade has made its name with modern yet effortless mix-and-match organic layette essentials such as rompers, gowns, dresses and booties. Whether you’re shopping for a Sweetpea, Peanut or Monkey, Parade’s best-selling nickname series offers the perfect print for your little bundle, while the moose, deer and owl-obsessed can go head-to-toe in the My Animal Friends collection. They also bring in creative complements to the Parade aesthetic,

such as wooden toys, blocks and puppets. The duo are involved in every design detail, and each piece is produced in a fair trade setting in India, where organic cotton farming has a long history. In a market struggling with greenwashing, the label ‘organic’ can (pardon our francais) sometimes just be blowing baby powder up consumers’ bums. But Parade’s textile certification — GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) — is the world’s leading standard. “As far as the baby is concerned, [organic cotton] is much softer on delicate newborn skin, particularly for babies with skin conditions. Baby’s skin should be covered in purity, not industrial chemicals.” So what’s coming for kids in 2014? “Our new spring collection has a Dutch feel... Tulips and bicycles.” It may be based out of the heart of Vancouver, but there’s nothing raining on this Parade. — Kelsey Klassen

Graham Clark: Gold, Best Podcast; Silver, Best Comedian

C

omedian, writer, lover — I think we all know which skill set really won Graham Clark the votes in the Westender’s Best of the City poll this year. Clark is perhaps best known for his award-gobbling podcast, Stop Podcasting Yourself, which he puts on weekly with co-comedian Dave Shumka and guests. Interviews with comedians are funny things though (pun intended), and instead of trying to spin straw out of gold, I’ll turn it over to a Q&A with the man himself: You do incredible paintings with your beard for charity. What’s one of your most recent? I’m actually working on one that’s taken me a couple months to do. A friend of mine wanted a painting of his two kids. It’s very hard to paint somebody’s children because you want them to look really nice. Where can people see you perform live? I host a show every Monday at Havana on Commercial called the The Laugh Gallery. How do you measure success? It really depends on the person. If you’re in the States, getting on a show like the Tonight Show or the Late Show would be a good indicator that you’re doing okay. There isn’t a ton of that stuff

in Canada, so it’s weirder to try and figure out if you’re a success. If you’re able to carve out some kind of career in any artistic pursuit, then I think you’ve won big time.

Best decision you’ve ever made? To finally just commit and grow a giant beard. I wasn’t working at the time and I had the opportunity, so I did it.

What is Canada’s Tonight Show? For a long time there was a show called Comedy Now and that was the Comedy Network’s standup-dedicated show. So that became a milestone; if you did one of those you were of a certain legitimacy. Now, I think if you’re on Just for Laughs, that means you’re kind of legit. But there’s a lot of things that comics can appear on in Canada. Just not all of them pay very well. Or at all.

Best bathroom? Hotel Vancouver. Those are, like, immaculate. And it has marble and really nice faucets. It’s very well maintained. Hotel Vancouver: treat yourself.

Best comedy group other than yours? There’s a great group of guys and gals called The Sunday Service. Best comedy show to binge watch? Peep Show. Best of the City 2014 Pocket Guide

Best ‘other’ Graham Clark? I used to have a joke that I would do on stage where I would say, ‘Sometimes, when you Google your own name, you realize there are people out there that are doing a lot more with it than you are.’ And I feel like, ‘Wow, there are some real Graham Clarks out there gettin’ shit done.’ — Kelsey Klassen

Kidsbooks: Gold, Best Kids’ Store

M

y love affair with Kitsilano began five years ago, when my husband and I were looking to move on from our grimy post-university apartment in Mount Pleasant. It wasn’t long before we found everything we were looking for in Kits. Two years passed. Enter our progeny: a big-eyed, wilful baby girl. For a brief moment, I wondered if we’d have to pull up stakes. Sure, Kits had been a great place to be a young professional, but was it any place to raise a child? I needn’t have worried. There are many layers to Kitsilano. And

even before I was a parent, I’d pause outside Kidsbooks and admire their colourful window displays, often featuring characters I’d never heard of from cleverly titled books. But as pretty as the exterior is, it

hardly compares to the magic contained within. There’s a section for everyone: infants, preschoolers, newbie “chapter readers” — even adults. Bonus: they regularly host author signings. — Sabrina Furminger

Briers Home and Gift: Gold Unique Gifts and Home Decor

S

omewhere in the crowded midst of Briers Home and Gift, you can chance upon everything from a hand-held device that plays movie music to animal-shaped pacifiers. The store has become somewhat of a Santa’s workshop on 4th Avenue, but instead of Christmas gifts and elves, you’ll find books titled “Everyone Poops” and “Stop Tweeting Stupid S*it.” Briers Home and Gift is a place to go to for a laugh, a place where your favourite item will always change and something, in some way, will always remind you of “that time.” “I love it when people come in for the first time because they get excited and then I get excited,” says manager Tamara Gronlund. Deemed a “discovery store”

by a customer, Briers fits a massive collection of random items into a small space. “I once saw an old lady in tears because she was laughing so hard,” says Sophie Burgoyne, operations manager for the store. Briers has also started selling furniture. Just across the street you’ll find the Briers Home and Furnishing store that specializes in small furniture for smaller spaces. “Size matters, so no matter what size your space is, we can accommodate it,” says Cherie Schuman, interior designer. She helps overwhelmed customers identify items that work for them at “approachable prices.” Briers is a place where you’ll laugh until you cry and walk away with something you never knew existed. — Raman Kang

Little Hardware Gold, Hardware Store

L

ittle Hardware, one of the few West End hardware stores, has been around for 30 years. In 2009, Rose and Leon Albrecht bought the business and have been voted Best of the City numerous times. Little Hardware, catering to renters, carries everything from paint to light bulbs, nuts and bolts to chandeliers and lamps as well as pipe fixtures for all of those pesky plumbing needs. The little store, labeled “convenient” by customers and a “one-stop shop” by Rose Albrecht, makes getting to know customers easy and the service makes you feel like family. — Raman Kang

Laughing Men:

Gold, Best Public Art
