Do some shopping at this charming craft store.
Spend an afternoon wandering, stopping in at little shops such as the Coop Vert Tuyau. A showcase for the works of local artists and artisans, Vert Tuyau — literally meaning a 'green pipe' — is a small store bursting with inventive, ecologically friendly items. There are handbags made of recycled cassette tapes and quilted belts that look much like modern-day versions of those originally worn by early Québec settlers. Also to be found are simple, but beautiful patchworks made of colorful hand-me-downs.
