On your visit to Québec City, there is no reason you need to settle for a buffalo-plaid fleece or a stuffed moose toy when you are shopping for gifts to take back home. Old Québec has countless boutiques, crafts stores, and galleries highlighting the works of local artists and artisans. One of the best selections is at the Boutique Métiers d’Art du Québec on Place Royale, where all of the items on sale are made in the province. More than 100 artisans are represented at the store, which is run by the Conseil des Métiers d’Art du Québec. Choose from one-of-a-kind handcrafted jewelry, housewares, greeting cards, clothing, toys, and games.
