I was recently in Kelowna on a cool November day with a few hours to kill and a looming deadline of my husband’s birthday fast approaching. I headed for Bernard Street in the cute heritage downtown right by the lake (a short walk from my Accent Inn) and was soon embarrassed by the obscene number of shopping bags I was holding!
The shopkeeper in Blackfish Apparel assured me that all the bags was a very good thing, especially shopping local and supporting a vibrant downtown Kelowna. Well, I sure did my part in her store which is unbelievable for ladies looking for funky but low priced dresses. I walked out of there with 3 new little numbers all under $100. The shop owner was so friendly and helpful when I guiltily explained that I was supposed to be looking for my husband’s birthday gift; she pointed me in the right direction down to X.10.Sion (yeah, I haven’t a clue how to pronounce it either, but it’s right below Earl’s at the end of Bernard across from the lake… speaking of Earls, what an awesome place to have lunch! A beautiful view of the water…. or try the Memphis Blues BBQ one block up on Bernard if you like ribs… wow, they are good). (more…)
