Returning to Dressew

In December I headed to Vancouver for a short visit, (to see Canadian alternative rock band Moist on their Resurrection reunion tour) and while I was there I had to pop into Dressew for a quick (well… 2 hours…) visit and shopping trip. While I spent a lot of time debating getting some very bulky (and not suitcase-friendly) wool coating, I thought I’d share a few photos with you of the shop. You can also go back to one of my earlier posts about Dressew to learn more and to see more photos.

I can’t post about Moist without posting a photo as well! This is Mark Makoway, the guitar player for the band.
