Vandera’s Best Loved

We are introducing yet another way to get to know us here at Vandera Stuff! Every month we are going to bring to you a list of 5 of our Favourite things from food, fashion, and adventures around Vancouver, BC.


Check in with us monthly to learn more about who we are, things we love, and become closer friends! Also we want to hear from you, so feel free to comment with your own list each month so we can learn more about you too! So let’s get started!

  1. We love CHOCOLATE!! Especially chocolate hazelnut and who can resist a tempting Ferrero Rocher! To us this is pure decadence, feeding our hearts and souls. If you are a chocolate fanatic like us, then this delicious treat probably makes your list too!DSC_0033.JPG

They have a massive supply of all gemstones and jewelry supplies, are very helpful when it comes to customer service, and host a lovely community of other artists and jewelry designers. Located in gorgeous North Van, Capliano Rock and Gem is a must see for all things crystals.


3. Music is a very big part of our lives. Here in Vancouver there is an artist who finds old pianos and places them in public spaces for people to play. We love this idea as it shares one of our favourite things, The Gift of Music! Such a beautiful and inspiring art installation that has proven to bring out some talented and unexpected musicians.

4. SUSHI!!!



Our favourite place is Called Sushi Mori! It’s a little hideaway nestled between Port Moody and Coquitlam, In the Tri-Cities of Vancouver. They have a very long list of different and exciting rolls, and all the classic Japanese dishes that we love so much. Vancouver is a Sushi hot spot, serving up fresh seafood as we live so close to the water and all its bounty. If you ever get the chance to visit this area we strongly recommend you check them out!

5. Citrine

We love Citrine, so full of warmth and happiness with its bright colour. this month we have welcomed home a new crystal to the family and it just definitely had to be in our favourites for June!


Natural Citrine is a premier stone of manifestation, imagination, and personal will. Carrying the power of the sun, it is warm and comforting, energizing and life-giving. It stimulates the chakras like the sunlight of spring, clearing the mind and stirring the soul to action. Its frequency awakens creativity and imagination, and sustains the process of transforming dreams and wishes into tangible form. With its pure yellow energy, Citrine encourages fullness of life, fresh beginnings and new pursuits.


This gorgeous Citrine pendant is made by us and available in our shop at Vandera Stuff. Our beautiful wire wrapped Golden Citrine shines so brightly! The Crystal flashes rainbows of colour with the light and is intricately bound in copper wire. So enchanting and dazzling all hung on an a natural leather cord.


That is all our Favourite things for this month at Vandera Stuff! Now you know some of our favourite hangouts, foods, and hobbies so maybe you can catch us around Vancouver! Also we would love to hear your thoughts and feelings about our favourite things, and perhaps you would like to join in and create a list of your own! We want to learn more about you too!
