VANCOUVER — Mount Pleasant has seen a bit of a local refreshment in the last few years. The latest addition is the shop on the corner location of 27th and Main, so much more than a retailer, Neighbourhood Quality Goods. Julia Church of Nettle’s Tale Swimwear and Melanie Hull of MH Jewellery co-opened the shop in June after the success of both their businesses over the past year. “We’ve got lots of swimwear and lots of West Coast-made items, so I think people are really enjoying the vibe,” explains Church.

The shop’s launch was more than a typical boutique party- it included trying on the beautiful, modest, retro, and flattering Nettle’s Tale swimsuits, posing for a camera (gasp!) and celebrating women entrepreneurship. The success of the business confirmed demand not only for cute body-care products, candles, vintage and new clothes and decor – but for supporting female empowerment. Hull also comes from the festival scene, having worked in the East Van Flea and Pemberton Fest markets previously.

“We live in such a beautiful area but there’s also such a creative spirit but I think there’s also a grounding in quality,” Church acclaims about the region. For the few blocks immediately surrounding the shop, the character of the store blends in perfectly to the ever-growing eclectic collection of establishments. “There’s not a lot of swimwear on Main Street. I know that Eugene Choo carries some swimsuits but they’ve been sending people here!” expresses Church. As for other staple spots in the hood, Church recommends Le Marché St. George, Les Faux Bourgeois, and Matchstick Coffee Roasters- a classic Mount Pleasant coffee experience, as well as down the road Brassneck for some unique beers. Not to mention the warm welcomes from Nineteen Ten furniture and Vincent Park fashion, who sent flowers. Community over competition is the norm in this booming area, without a doubt.

As for the already successful Nettle’s Tale brand finally receiving the storefront it deserves, Church says, “Nothing online exchanges the emotional experience of a mom being like ‘thank you so much for designing this suit because her daughter finally found something that fits’ or older women who come in and are like ‘that was painless’ and are kind of emotional about it – and they should be!”

Neighbourhood Quality Goods is at 4301 Main St. The front of the shop is also available to book for events and pop-ups.
