Looking for something to do? Every Monday morning, we present to you “Modern Mix Monday”, a brief but link-filled one-liner review of our past weekend loaded with suggestions to inspire you for your next!
I am currently in Edmonton, Alberta and strangely enough, on my first full day here, I came across a Gravity Pope warehouse sale, just off Whyte Avenue. Gravity Pope is located on the West 4th shopping district in Vancouver, but its first location was actually founded in Edmonton in 1990. The retail shop has an incredible selection of footware from “Acne” to “Zinda“. In between, there are Converse sneakers and Ugg boots. In the words of my Albertan friend with whom I have been staying, “quirky but upscale footware – located in a place where most passer-bys would see only as a hole in the wall but familiar to all the locals”.
Speaking of shoes, on a side note, I’m only here for five days but I brought four pairs of shoes with me and I have already worn all of them at least once! Better to over-pack, right?
