7e7 and The Winter Shop

We are pleased to present our new concept space! Aptly named 7e7 (short for 7 East 7th Avenue), our Mount Pleasant studio has expanded to house Janaki Larsen Ceramics, Mandula, and is now also the home of The Wild Bunch Floral Studio headquarters. The official public opening of our concept space also happened to be the launch of this year's 'The Winter Shop'. What used to be an annual pop-up above Le Marché St. George has now grown into a bi-annual seasonal launch - and it's our largest one of the year!

We will be open every single day of The Winter Shop. We will be back to our regular hours after the holidays.

Year of the Fire Monkey

Today officially marks the beginning of the Year of the Fire Monkey. For those celebrating Chinese New Year, we wish you a Happy Lunar New Year and a Happy Family Day!

Some news for those of you wondering about Atelier St. George. We will be re-opening the showroom, officially, on the 15th of February, and hosting a grand re-opening party on the evening of the 18th! For those of you who haven't signed up for the Atelier St. George newsletter yet, you can do so here, to keep up to date on showroom sales and new products that will be coming in over the next few months!

 In Chinese tradition, surrounding one's table and surroundings to herald the Lunar New Year will bring one's household much prosperity and good fortune. Here's hoping! (Vignette styled with  Atelier linen towels  and a  Janaki Larsen  bowl.)

Save Le Marché St. George!

Le Marché St George is a corner store, a café, a meeting place, and a home. It’s a husband, wife, and daughter, a sister, a best friend, an aunt, 3 chickens, 2 cats, a fish and 2 bee hives who all reside here. It's a place where everyone is welcome. It’s seeing the neighbourhood kids growing up together. It's love stories that have lead to happily-ever-afters. It’s where the mothers and fathers come to relax with their kids. It’s first dates and first babies. It's running groups and knitting groups, community vineyards, and mariachi bands. It's keeping spare keys to the neighbours houses, It’s honest people who work long hours. It’s a funky, handsome, all-crooked, old building where all of this is happening... and we want to keep it that way!

Unfortunately, due to outdated city bylaws defining what a "neighbourhood grocery store" is, we cannot be who we are and who we've been for the past 5 years. Help us change the City's mind and show them what these kinds of places mean to their neighbourhoods and communities.

The Petition

This Friday (on the 11th of December), City Officials will potentially restrict Le Marché St.George's outdoor and indoor seating and our ability to serve food. 

These restrictions would effectively close le Marché St.George because the business would not be able to generate enough revenues to stay open. The current by-laws encourage neighbourhood grocery stores to sell cigarettes, magazines, lotto tickets and junk food!

Help change these outdated by-laws by signing this petition. 
 

Dear City of Vancouver,

Please allow neighbourhood grocery stores, like Le Marché St.George, to have limited service food establishment licences, in order to succeed and serve the demands of their communities.

Respectfully,
Le Marché St.George
