Never Be Mount Royals

Main and Local

What It Is: Fun fact if you didn’t know, Mount Royal is a volcanic-related hill in Montreal, and it’s where the city gets its name from. I couldn’t do an All Canadian month without featuring a tribute to one of our most unique cultural hotspots, Montreal. Main and Local is a cool boutique that features plenty of Montreal-themed goodies that aren’t your typical tourist schlock. From a dreamy ‘Key to Montreal’ necklace to retro-themed purses, pouches, cell phone cases and shoelaces that celebrate everything from the Royals to the Metro, there’s some cool finds here for anyone that’s got a soft spot for our nation’s largest French-dominated city.

Who It’s For: Your college-bound kid, to celebrate their new city. Your Montreal-born spouse, to celebrate their love of the city. Your jetsetting friend, to commemorate their time spent in this metropolitan city (and their love of bagels).

What It Costs: Prices start at about $7.99. I don’t think I saw anything over $100.

Where It’s At: Shop online here.
