This month, shop for local art at a new gallery in Inglewood, head to CF Chinook Centre to shop Nordstrom's huge anniversary sale or pick up some accessories from the new Think Stunning store in The Core. Here's what you need to know about the latest shopping and lifestyle openings, news and sales.

 

Art on 9th opens in Inglewood

There's a new spot to get your art fix in Inglewood. At Art on 9th, artwork by local artists is featured (and available for purchase) in temporary exhibit spaces that changes regularly. The gallery, which opened on May 4, has two exhibit areas: The Collection, which features artwork from six different artists every two months, and The Salon, which features artwork from only one or two artists and changes monthly. The short term nature of the exhibits means there will be new pieces arriving regularly for art lovers to peruse. Current artists featured in the gallery include Patrick Markle, Karen Biko, Sue Contini, Christine Ford and more.

My Treasure Sale is a new weekly market at Northland Village Mall

Malls are already a popular shopping destination and now Calgarians can even shop in the parkade at Northland Village Mall. My Treasure Sale is a new weekly market that will be set up in the parkade on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Depending on the week, you could find vendors selling jewellery, tupperware, plants, produce and more. There will be regular vendors, but people can also pop by and set up a temporary table to sell items of their own for $15. There may also be food trucks, live music and/or children's activities. The market runs until October 7.

Think Stunning opens at The Core

Take your outfits to the next level at Think Stunning. The new store, which celebrated its grand opening in The Core on June 23, specializes in stylish accessories such as leather bags and clutches, scarves, sunglasses and jewellery. Think Stunning even offers its own stylish twist on a lunch bag, which manages to be practical, sleek and professional looking all at the same time (in fact, it could easily pass for a purse). Shopping here also helps a good cause; whenever Think Stunning sells a product, it gives two percent of the profits to Charity Water.
