For anyone in the Montreal area this weekend, especially the West island, this is one of those you'll regret missing.
For those who don't know, the Pointe-Claire village is the original area of the pioneering French farming village that developed this end of the island. Around this the modern city of Pointe-Claire has grown, but the character, many of the structures, lots of the 'families' have remained.
This is a real village. It has charm, identity and lots of interesting shops, stores and businesses. (No chain stores here).
Boutique Lois Butler, where the sale is, is just one of them, but it's one that should not be missed.
This Canada Day weekend has lots of events, great food variety, children's events and fireworks in the evening. Enjoy your shopping and your 'finds' and don't miss the parade, it's the real thing.
