Team Macho Arrives!

So, I grew up in Toronto.

And, I have a little bit of a crush on my hometown. Thus, I've got a bit of a bias when it comes to Team Macho, who's work I've liked for a few years. They're from Toronto, they wear sweaters, and they make great work. Now my Vancouver friends can come and see their prints, books and postcards here at the shop.

Come see, it'll make your day.

Yes, we do Birthday Parties!

Birthday Parties at Collage Collage are pretty darn fun. Click here for booking details!

I recently asked my friend and photographer Lauren Tetreault to shoot a party, and I'm so thrilled I did. You can check out Lauren's blog at

Birthday Parties run as a private class. Families bring their own food, cake and goodie bags, and Collage Collage takes care of the activity, mess + clean up!

Lauren is available for hire for parties now, and I couldn't be happier to be able to offer this to any families interested.

They've been a delight to host. Click here to see one that we had not to long ago with another family, who happen to be connected to my favorite cupcake maker, Coco Cupcakes!

So, what do you do here?

I get this question all the time at the shop. My favorite comment to date was a fellow who came in, stretched his arms out wide, and proclaimed "I love this place! What is it?"

It totally made my day, and reminded me that a few more photos of what happens here might help everyone better understand a shop like Collage Collage.

Here at Collage Collage, we sell books, magazines, art supplies, toys, and other treasures. We teach classes several times a week that you can check out on the website. Or you can just email me, and we can find out if I've got a class suitable for you and your family.

Winter is here

So, winter is upon us.

Personally, I kind of love the excuse to hibernate a little, stay in, stay warm, read books, and of course make things.

I just got our delivery from Moomah in New York. Moomah is a beautiful store and cafe - I like to think of them as Collage Collage's older, more sophisticated cousin living in NYC. I chose just a couple of their kits, stickers and colouring books to share with you now, and hope to have a whole lot more of their products in the future.

Here's a small peek. Come in, pick one, make something great.

Here We Go!

Welcome to Collage Collage's blog. We're a store, a school and a place for all to be inspired in. It's pretty fun to stop in, pick up a book or fall in love with a handmade monster from Halifax. Or maybe find a robot made right here in Vancouver, or maybe just join us at the giant pine table for some colouring. It's really up to you.
