The Goods (2307 East Hastings St. Vancouver, BC) may be one of the best Screen printing and custom Apparel shops around, but its also so much more!
The Goods is also a magical place for any collector of novelty horror merchandise, and if you’ve never been in Heather and Dave’s amazing print/apparel/collectables shop, October is the perfect time to stop in and explore every treasure covered nook and cranny of their store! There’s seriously soooo much to look at, you REALLY need to see it with your own eyes. There is so much awesome squeezed into a tiny space!
Heather and Dave are also two of the friendliest folks in the neighbourhood. It’s the kind of comfortable environment for hanging out, chatting, and finding the unexpected. I’ve never walked away from a trip to the Goods without having learned something new about the process of screen printing, or novelty board games. You’ll actually get to know them, which is the kind of beautiful connection you can only get from a small business owner. It’s one of the most unique little shops around, and a celebrated addition to the East Village community!
With Halloween coming up make sure you check out their impressive selection of horror novelty items, from masks/costumes to enamel buttons and horror based boardgames!
“Established in 2009 The GOODS Screening and Apparel was servicing East Vancouver’s fashion needs just off Main Street on Broadway. We started out selling locally designed retail apparel and custom screen printing for the business and arts scene,we have evolved the shop into this and much more. Currently you could say the Goods is a Boutique fashion, novelty and boardgame shop. All Killer no filler!
Since The GOODS has moved to East Village we have found one of the biggest strengths of this neighborhood is the sense of community.”
“We have always had an attachment to East Van, it’s our community, it’s where we feel at home. When we moved over from Broadway we could instantly feel that sense of community and belonging and it really made us feel like we’ll make it after suffering such a bad hit in our old location. During the scary months at the beginning of Covid, when we had to shut down, it was amazing to have so many people check in on us and offer help to our little shop, it was both heartwarming and powerful how community could come together for support.”
“Heather and I would like to give a special shout to our clients that followed us from the old shop to the new and to our new clients that have welcomed us to this neighborhood. Sincerely, it’s been a dream!”
