The Eco Fashion Week - Value Village Gift Lounge was absolutely the place to be with careful and always wonderfully friendly directions from Ashleigh Said, a non stop welcome from Myriam Laroche and a very thorough detailing, by the silver ringed Vee Pho, of the thoughtful, instantly consumable, local and generous treasures for the best gift bags ever.  The treasure tables were set up around the perimeter of the room, with lots of space for casual seating in the centre, as a meeting place.  The wall of fame with all of the sponsors was a great spot for photos by Byron Dauncey and Kathryn!

I am wearing a coral two piece and a First Nations silk scarf by

Me, Myriam and Helen!

And here is Peter to give the reasons why 
this water is the way to go.

 Looking out at sponsors in this event: Turnabout, Mineandyoursco, Naturespathorganic and Value  Village ThriftLa Biosthetique Canada, (services galore!), Pukalily, Davids Tea, Therawise, Santevia, Be CoconutMilano Roasters, Hart and Stone, Smell this!Aromatherapy, Strathcona 1890 Urban Seed Collectors, SaltSpringIsland Candle Co...such a long list!

There are never enough pictures but I did want to add that Turnabout's Joy Mauro, who spoke so passionately at ECO Fashion Week (previous post here) also included a gift certificate for $25 and that I will certainly be visiting one of their 3 locations, two in Vancouver and one in Surrey. I am wearing a beautiful silver ring from Hart and Stone and am loving the scented candle by Salt Spring Island Candle Co.  Feeling lucky to have enjoyed the Gift Lounge evening and meeting so many wonderful ECO FASHION friends, sponsors, stylists, photographers, and oh, those volunteers!  Thanks very much everyone, especially Eco Fashion Week, Vancouver. Congratulations and Kudos LEO Winners.
