“When we enlarge our view of the world, we deepen our understanding of our own lives.” — Yo-Yo Ma
Linda and I visited Best of Both Worlds at the Quadra Street location in the fall of 2015. http://www.victoriassecretgems.ca/best-of-both-worlds-imports/
However, this new location in popular Fan Tan Alley is proving to be a good move, due to the enhanced foot traffic.
The first thing that caught my eye upon
entering the store was this silk lamp
from Thailand. Striking!
Then there was the collection of small
lidded boxes — a weakness of mine! —
made of mango wood.
And then there was the furniture, such as this 12-drawer teak cabinet from Thailand,
or this 30″ saddle stool from China,
or this reclaimed teak cabinet from Thailand,
or this substantial warrior chair made of monkey wood from Thailand, or this armoire from China.
and this, my favourite piece, a unique chest from India made of reclaimed wood.
Do visit this charming store in Fan Tan Alley or the warehouse on Quadra St and let your senses experience some of the unique products from the Far Eastern world. Your sense of smell will let you know when you’ve crossed the threshold!
