How did we get here?
Far + Wide was born out of community and collaboration.
After hosting workshops and pop-up markets as a side hustle, we saw an opportunity to add to the downtown retail experience in a new and exciting way. The result is a thoughtful mix of handmade, independent, and women-owned brands, housed in an inclusive and welcoming space that plays host to fun events, pop-ups, and hands on workshops to bring people together.
We are proud to stock beautiful home decor, bath and beauty products, accessories, candles, jewellery, houseplants, and more from over one hundred small brands – including local producers.
To us, the story and people behind a product are as important as the products themselves and we work hard to bring new and exciting brands into the store, while increasing representation for BIPOC and LGBTQ2S+ owned brands. Through pop-up events, markets, and collaborations, we continue to support local makers, promote their small businesses, and pay them for their work.
For owner, Calli Duncan, Far + Wide is more than a shop. It is both an obsession and a true test of determination, that has become so much bigger than just one person behind the scenes. Far + Wide is a community of incredible people, from our dedicated team, to the people behind the brands we stock, to our incredible customers. It is the family that you choose and we are grateful each day that you have, and continue to choose us.
Far + Wide was founded on the love of finding that perfect gift, to treat someone you love, or yourself! Whether you hop online for a last-minute gift, or spend a leisurely Saturday strolling through the shop, Far + Wide is our home and now it’s yours too.
We acknowledge with respect and gratitude that we work and live on the traditional and unceded territory of the Tk′emlúps te Secwépemc people.
