Tucked away in the Whistler Village, I discovered a beautiful little shop, 3 Singing Birds. The store hosts a collection of handcrafted items, ‘a gathering of small design companies that make beautiful products with a mindful and fair trade philosophy’, you can find items here crafted by local artisans, and from companies across the globe.
Filled with unique items, it’s the perfect gift shop. The shop carries stylish bags, women’s clothing, jewelry, children’s toys, home accessories, paper goods – and you can feel good about supporting companies that are local, use sustainable practices, and are handcrafted.
While perusing through the store, you have the feeling that you are digging through a treasure chest of rare items, and you want to touch everything. The textures of the sweaters, the feeling of the buttery vintage leather clutches, the silky scarves, the plush over-sized pillows – it’s a wonderful experience for your senses.
My favourite items include the over-sized throw pillows, the nature-inspired mobiles, and the delicious smelling candles.
3 Singing Birds also puts on various crafting workshops that teach basic sewing skills, how to make pillows, and even creating your own mobile. The shop is tucked away behind the Starbucks across from the Whistler Olympic Plaza and the playground. You can also access the store from The Green Moustache, which it shares the spaces with.
When in Whistler, a visit to 3 Singing Birds is highly recommended! The shop is open daily from 10-6. For more information visit the 3 Singing Birds website, and check out their Facebook & Instagram pages.
