“The Found & The Freed” Launch Victoria Drive Storefront


After several years of pop-up events and temporary locations, The Found & The Freed has finally found a fixed address: 706 Victoria Drive. That’s the old Scott’s corner store on the corner of Victoria and East Georgia, so it has great character. We recently stopped by on their first day of operations and found the place predictably full of interesting bits and bobs, including an ancient alligator’s head, a collection old and beautiful Vancouver-centric pennants, a stuffed California Quail, and all manner of other vintage fascinations besides. It was great to see owners/curators Ainsley McIntyre and Lindsay Burke in such a terrific location. It really does suit them. Take a closer look below. Hours: 12pm-7pm Thursday & Friday, 11am-6pm Saturday, and 11am-5pm Sunday.
