About Us

Moonrise Boutique is a Local Maker Boutique located downtown Castlegar. The shop was founded on the principals of collaboration to achieve our ultimate goal which is to support, encourage and enable creatives by opening a space where their efforts could be recognized. The store features items that are locally made in British Columbia and the majority of the artists we work with are located right here in the Kootenays. Our hope is to support these entrepreneurs and keep those hard earned dollars circulating in the community to promote further economic development + local options availiable. The founders Britt + Laura are a best friend duo that started their business as sellers of vintage clothing. The two would vend at markets, local restaurants + festivals. During these events, they met many other like minded people that by collaborating with helped ensure success for both parties. They wanted to take that concept and apply it to a retail setting which is what led to the opening of Moonrise.
