This shop is the store front for ROAM media and is affiliated with the CV Collective magazine showcasing local culture. It has a variety of awesome hand made products that are great for the home or as a local gift! Next time you are in Cumberland be sure to check it out. The store is located right up the far end of Dunsmuir Road and is often missed by people on the hunt so I urge you to go even father up than you think. 

ROAM Store & Studio

This is one of my favourite places to stop when driving down the inland island highway as the variety and standard of the art work is a very special collection showcasing artists from all over Vancouver Island. There are books about the island, small gifts to send to collect on your travels or send to loved ones and larger items for the home.
