Haida Gwaii/Queen Charlotte Islands, Shopping

In downtown Queen Charlotte City, there are quite a few shops that have some pretty neat stuff! I went with my friend to Funk It Gallery and Morgan's Store. Morgan's Store used to be owned by the same people, but situated elsewhere. They've now combined the two into one location!
Funk It showcases local artwork, furniture, jewellery, and more! It's a great place to venture to if you're looking for souvenirs or other items. Morgan's Store is a used clothing store. Clothes are brought back to life and sold at affordable prices, and there are some really fun pieces! In the photo to the left, my friend and I tried on our favourite pieces...something out of the ordinary!
Downstairs from Funk It is Queen B's Cafe. After you're done shopping, or just browsing as we were, you can head downstairs for lattes, italian sodas, bread pudding and more! They have great lunches varying daily from black bean enchiladas to artichoke, spinach, and prawn pesto pizzas! The cafe has a very warm and relaxed feel to it. All of July there is a 'Chasing the Light photography' art show featured in Queen B's and Funk it, so be sure to check it out! My friend and I sat down for some warm bread pudding, topped with whipped cream, and two italian sodas. It really helps when the staff at Funk It and Morgan's and Queen B's are all so fun and inviting! What a great day!
