Ceremonial bentwood boxes, copper shields painted with family crests, and other objects representing the First Nations abound at this sophisticated 1,800-square-foot-store located on the cliffs of Vancouver’s Point Grey. Reopened in 2009, on the heels of the MOA renewal project, the store is also a platform for local artists—such as Vancouver architect Noel Best, designer of the $2,650 limited-edition MOA chair—not to mention a rich source for the globe’s finest cultural keepsakes.
