The Bear and the Butterfly offers a myriad of uniquely Canadian housewares, kitchenware, jewelry and fine art. Take home a soapstone or calcite bear carving, crafted by the First Nations in the north, or one of an assortment of hand carved wooden birds made in Labrador, on Canada’s east coast. Have you enjoyed your visit to Banff? Outfit your home with our store’s selection of uniquely Canadian styled pillows, throws and lamps, and remember your trip forever. Bring the inviting warmth of the Canadian Rockies back home to your kitchen, too, with artisan wood cutting boards, mahogany spatulas, wild BC salmon and a number of Canadian maple products. If you’re looking for a gift for that special someone, you’re sure to find it in our jewelry cabinets— Canadian-made pieces with priceless mammoth ivory, First Nations designs on precious silver and authentic, beautiful necklaces made from First Nations trade beads. We also carry a large number of sculptures, glasswork and fine art prints. Feel free to browse our online catalogue for a sample of the goods available at either of our stores listed below. We look forward to seeing you!
