Why We Love It: Wunderkammer

They say when one door closes, another one opens.  This is exactly the case with Wunderkammer on Dalhousie - located in the old Canteen building, the owners of this jewellery shop have made the space all their own.  Before setting up shop here in the city (they opened a mere four months ago!), the duo had been based in Montreal.  The interior is warmly lit with a rustic, woodsy vibe.  It is also filled with some of the coolest and most unique jewelry in the whole city of Ottawa, and S and I love us some statement jewellery.  The owners, Nathan and Tamara, are also the designers behind frug, one of the in-house jewellery lines sold at the store.  They really do have something for everyone - I definitely had my eye on some gold-pressed earrings and a great cicada ring (a cicada on a ring...genius!).  Aside from jewellery, they also sell cards (with cats on them!) and small gifts.  I highly recommend checking this place out, I know I'll be back! We may have lost an old favourite (RIP Canteen!), but we definitely found a new one in Wunderkammer! You can check out their facebook page and website for more info! - J
