Gastown's newest store Old Faithful is just my kind of place. The owners Walter Manning and Savannah Olsen have carefully selected goods from small manufacturers from the UK, Boston, France and Japan, to name a few. With floor to ceiling shelving, school-house ceiling fixtures, old brick walls, hardwood floors, and wood-topped tables, Old Faithful is a comforting space where spruce incense burns and a sweet little dog can be seen sitting in the back of the store.
Some pictures of a few things that Old Faithful carries:

What I am most wanting: those ceramic strawberry crates and faux-paper plates and cups in the 2nd to last picture.
Lots of great design posts in the future on Being Tazim, so keep up: Rss Reader
