If you've ever been to Granville Island you know that there are so many neat little shops to look at and of course there is also the Public Market and theaters and distraction all around.
Which is why it can be a bit tricky to just sort of bump into the eclectic Ainsworth Shop & Studio located a tad past Opus and the Emily Carr Institute of Art & Design. It's run by it's owner Karen Ainsworth and her mom (cuuute!) and there are tons of original local artists work to be had there! Amongst them is now also the Draw Me A Lion line. Our whole line of limited edition prints is showcased upstairs (yes, there is an upstairs!) and the owner even devoted a little table to the Story Activity book. How great is that?
Here are a few pics of the inside of the shop. There is even a ceramic and welding studio in the back where some of the artists represented there have their studios. One of them is the talented Mary Kim who has a gazillion neat things for sale at Ainsworth and who is also featured in one of these pics here along with her cute wee little one.
