Pop-Up Shops Recap: Citizen Grace and Eco Diva

Citizen Grace

Citizen Grace-10

A while back, I stopped by the Citizen Grace and Eco Diva pop-up at The Chinatown Experiment. It was great meeting the lovely duo behind the online boutique: Christina Heemskerk and Shannon Heth. One of the best things that came out of visiting the pop-up was getting introduced to the Australian Bardot brand. The girls brought on the line in July 2013, and since I haven’t seen it at any Vancouver boutiques, I think we all need to head on over to the website to check out this brand. It’s got great detail and interesting prints – way to stand out from everyone else shopping at the mall.

Garcy Fry is the CEO of Eco Diva , an online boutique specializing in sustainable and luxurious beauty products. According to the website, her mother, founder Charlene Swanson Crawford believed in finding a better solution to makeup products and now runs the online store with her daughter. Not only are the products sustainable, the business also has a strong ethical foundation. Currently, a portion of the proceeds benefit one of four charities; with every purchase, you get to choose where your donated dollar goes toward.


The most interesting brand I came across was Kjaer Weis, which offers refillable eye shadow compacts. Check out the rest of the eye colours here on Eco Diva.
