Old Faithful Shop stocks good quality goods for simple, everyday living. We believe that the best products become better known as our Old Faithful ones: trusty, well-built heirloom pieces that are classic in design and only enhanced by the passage of time. In a disposable world we appreciate items that will exist long after we do not.
The inspiration for Old Faithful Shop came directly from the shop floors of co-founder Walter Manning's Grandparents stores. Both his paternal and maternal Grandparents owned and operated successful General Stores, as did their parents before them.
What resonated with Walter the most was that their shops not only provided general provisions and impeccable service, but also served as a gathering place and hub for the community to get together and catch up. You always got more than you needed.
It was from these memories that Old Faithful Shop was fashioned. Located in a landmark 1903 building in the historic Gastown district of Vancouver, Old Faithful Shop is a modern day version that would have existed on these cobblestone streets over 100 years ago: a store equally anchored in quality products and top-notch service because some things should never have to change.
