Ask anyone who has visited The Mason Jar Home Décor and Gift Shop and they’ll all say the same thing. This little store is gorgeous! With a focus on supporting and showcasing local talent, owner Cathy Firth has created a beautifully curated collection of items from local makers and artisans. The shop is full of wonderful gift ideas like the divine-smelling candles from the Vancouver Candle Company, pretty jewellery from Jenny Bird and Pyrrha, those super-trendy Smash Tess jumpers or a cozy robe from the Tofino Towel Company.
Refreshing your space for Spring? The Mason Jar is where you’re going to find that perfect item to finish your room. Or you might find that one item that sets the tone for the entire space. The fun is in the hunt, so expect to spend some quality time browsing and be fully prepared to want to take the whole store home with you!
Truly a family affair, Cathy’s mother and daughter are a common presence in the shop, as is the shop’s namesake, grandson, Mason. And whether you’re shopping or just popping in to window-shop and say hi, you’ll always be enthusiastically welcomed like family with warmth and kindness.

Going to the boutique, opening the doors and welcoming each and every person that walks through the door, followed by a walk on the beach at the end of a busy day never disappoints.

I love the White Rock Farmer’s Market.
East Beach or West Beach? Why?
think they both have something to offer, it all depends what one is after on any given day.
