The places of Part Time Lovers

The Vancouver Art Gallery sits right across the street from the majestic Hotel Vancouver – which is where Jules and Mercy of Part Time Lovers have their office.

The art gallery building, once the home of the British Columbia Courthouse, was designed by Francis Rattenbury and built in 1905. Recently, the Art Gallery has been doing something I absolutely love. They are taking the art from inside and putting it outside. This summer the surrealist exhibit shows its face to the world – two or three stories high.

It contains one of the best jewelry stores in Vancouver – as a young woman, all I could think about was buying a ring at Birks and taking it home in the silver ring box.
