There's one thing we know about Canadians: they don't take kindly to bullshit. Maybe that's why Vancouver natives Savannah Olsen and Walter Manning opened Old Faithful Shop.
It's full of unfussy, hard-wearing, classic stuff for everyday living. Wool blankets, old-style lamps, handmade soap, canvas bags and kitchen and home wares. Savannah and Walter say they handpick the kinds of things that age well and stand the test of time, so if you're after a chopping block or laundry basket that'll outlive you, you might want to take a gander.
