Just off of Wyandotte Street East you’ll find P.R.A.Y. – a specialty boutique catering to the pilates, running or yoga enthusiast.
P.R.A.Y. (Pilates, Running And Yoga) recently moved to their new location at 548 Chilver in Olde Walkerville. The beautiful space is flooded with natural light from large front windows. Rays of warm sunshine grace the displays of jewellery, colourful scarves, active wear and shoes.
The boutique offers a large selection of athletic wear that is not only ethically manufactured, but also fashionable. These garments are made from bamboo, organic cotton or rpet (recycled water bottles) and come in many vibrant colours to help inspire your next workout session. Many athletic accessories are also available, such as colourful yoga mats, non-slip gloves and socks and adorable BKR heart glass bottles to help keep you hydrated.
The items at P.R.A.Y. are not only beautiful and useful, they also promote the spirit of giving and helping others. One such example are TOMS shoes – with every shoe purchased a new pair of shoes is given to a child in need. P.R.A.Y.’s selection of TOMS ranges from demure canvas to ruby glitter. Love Quotes Scarves is a New York based brand that shares its profits with international children’s charities. The sleek and stylish Matt and Nat handbags are made using animal free materials, including making the linings of their handbags with recycled bottles.
Sparkling in the sunlight you’ll find Satya Jewelry featuring spiritual symbols, healing gemstones and are not only globally consciously created but the company also donates a percentage of their sales to children’s organizations. The shop also carries jewellery by Dogeared Jewels & Gifts and Good Work(s) Make a Difference, both of which donate profits to charitable causes.
If you are looking for some great gift ideas that are globally conscious and benefit others, or if you’re just looking for something special for yourself, P.R.A.Y. boutique is the place to visit. There is even a children’s area to help keep the little ones happily busy while you shop.
P.R.A.Y. Boutique is open Monday 11am-6pm, Tuesday 12pm-6pm, Thursday 12pm-7pm, Friday 11am-5pm and Saturday 11am-5pm (closed Wednesdays and Sundays). You can visit their webpage, Facebook or contact them at 226-674-7729.
