At the end of July, Susan and I visited Montreal with our friend Emily. While in the city, we visited a little hole-in-the-wall of a shop in Chinatown, called the Shun Fat Trading Company (1110 St-Laurent). We first visited the shop last spring when we were in the city, and we loved it.
The store is very small, and filled with lots of generic Lucky Cats, Rilakkuma pencil toppers, and other products from Hong Kong. However, it is very endearing and less aggressive than the larger shops located along Rue St-Laurent.
If you’re ever in Montreal around the Chinatown sector, I suggest searching for it. It’s very cute, and located a few shops down from one of the big main gates. There is no website for the store, which has been on the street for a little over 5 years, but don't let that stop you from visiting.
Places we've gone, things we've seen, stories worth telling
