Local Places to Shop October 12, 2017 17:11 1 Comment

Hello Branch Family,

One of the biggest questions we get from people who come into our store is ... What other shops are there in town? So we decided to make a blog post about the places we love so you can plan your next adventure to the foothills!

We also did a blog post about our favourite places to eat around Black Diamond this past August.

Black Diamond Shops

Vintage clothing, apothecary items and massage therapy all under one roof. More than a store, Bertie's is a self care destination. When you shop at Banjolena''s you will be guided through the clothing with a personal touch from Jolene, resident personal stylist.

Isis, our main shopkeeper, and prairie princess of Tender Living Farm has hand crafted and foraged for items that are as utilitarian as they are beautiful. Let our expert herbalist and assist you with plant medicine, skin care, custom teas and many other gifts from nature.
