How it works

1. Shop!

Browse our online store and add your favourite items to the shopping cart.

2. Pay by Interac e-transfer

Check out and follow the instructions to pay by Interac e-transfer. This helps us keep costs low for our vendors by avoiding credit card transaction fees.

3. Book a pick-up time

Schedule a date to pick up your order from us in Vancouver’s Chinatown. Don’t worry, you’ll have a 3-hour pick-up window (we just want to have an idea of when you’re coming)!

You will receive an email (after the e-transfer is processed) asking you to book a pick-up date between November 16 to December 19 during these hours:

  • Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday 11:00 am – 2:00 pm
  • Thursday 4:00 pm – 6:45 pm
  • Saturday 11:00 am – 2:00 pm

4. Pick up your order

Drop by the Sun Wah Centre at 268 Keefer Street in Chinatown during your chosen date.

Text or call us when you arrive. We will meet you outside the front entrance of the building to deliver your order safely.

Make sure you support other businesses while you’re in the neighbourhood!
The Preferred Vendors Map on BC Artscape Sun Wah’s website is a fantastic and up-to-date resource.

More details about shopping with us

We follow strict safety guidelines, including staying at least 2 metres apart, the use of masks and face shields, and frequent hand washing.

We currently do not offer any shipping or delivery options. United Aunties is run by working parents who are caring for a toddler, so we’re not able to dedicate extra time to packaging and shipping. We hope to have more time (and energy) to offer shipping options in the future!

We only accept payment by Interac e-transfer. We do not accept cash, cheque, or credit cards (due to high transaction fees).

All sales are final. Items sold by United Aunties are on consignment, which means we hold onto the product for the artist/artisan (vendor) until it is sold. If there is any damage to your order due to faults in design or construction, we will put you directly in touch with the vendor to discuss a return or exchange.
