Downtown Halifax Business Commission, I was given $100 to spend as I liked in downtown Halifax. Nice huh? 29 other lucky bloggers were also given the same opportunity and you can read about their adventures here.
I decided to visit the south end of Barrington Street for the final part of my adventure downtown.
We stopped into Viewpoint Gallery, a place I have just discovered recently. You might walk past it if you weren't looking. Open 12-5pm Wednesday to Sunday, it is the only gallery dedicated to photography in the city. Here are a couple of art fans, sitting on the other side of a divider, enjoying the pictures!
Viewpoint is a co-operative owned and operated by photographers whose work appears on the walls. They promote Nova Scotian artists and have a revolving mix of solo and group shows.
Next up is Carbonstok! Just across the street. A fabulous shop full of quirky and fun things.
The kind of place where you will find something and say to yourself, why didn't I think of that?
Full of daylight and cool stuff to browse.
Lomo photography fun :)
I bought one of these..... look at the small illustration on the right to see what it is. I also walked away with a crazy head massager (daughter made me buy it!) and a funny book called Stuntology! We were reading it and laughing out loud. Very silly. Looking forward to trying some stunts :)
Hungry again and luckily, Uncommon Grounds is right next door!
I had a roasted veggie wrap and a chai latte and my daughter had a coffee. She was still full from that luscious cake a few hours ago. Yum, good stuff :)
This is a wifi hot spot and is often full of people on laptops.
So that brings to a close my epic day in downtown Halifax! I spent all my money, had a fabulous time, came home with some great goodies and a full tummy. The cool thing is, there is so much to do here that on any number of days, I could have COMPLETELY different adventures and not show you the same thing twice.
