For everyday foodies and artisan food makers who need a place to sample, buy, and sell local food, TINY is a retail store that curates and sells the best locally produced food in fun, small, affordable packages. TINY is about celebrating eating local and promoting local food producers in friendly and easy way. The interior architecture of TINY reflects this local, handmade aesthetic by taking everyday building materials and turning them into functional art. The ubiquitous wood pallet forms the ceiling and the walls: lovingly hand selected one by one from the pallet farm at Mitchell Island BC, hung with care on a bright pink wall and lit by handmade Edison bulbs. The humble pegboard display is given its proper credit, backlit and flanked by cork topped shelves. Cork, wood pallets, pegboard, plywood, light bulbs, nails and twine: everyday materials composed in a way that is unexpected and special: that’s the TINY way.
