8 boutiques to discover in Chelsea and Wakefield

Published on February 15 2019

On my last visit to Chelsea/Wakefield, my sister and I took time out for a little shopping at the local boutiques. I thought others might be interested, so here’s my report on 8 must-see shops in Chelsea/Wakefield! ?

Flanked by the magnificent hills of Gatineau Park and the Gatineau River, the historic village of Wakefield has its unique character and laid back way of life.



6 Wakefield Valley Road, Wakefield

Start your tour as you enter the village, at Tempol, which will transport you to India with its clothing, jewellery, incense and other fair-trade products from that colourful country. A little ray of sunshine to start your day.

Boutique Jamboree

740 Riverside Road, Wakefield

Next on the list is Boutique Jamboree home decor and gift shop. You’re sure to find a little treasure to brighten your home or give as a gift!


737 Riverside Road, Wakefield

Right across the street is Khewa, which specializes in Indigenous art and crafts. It’s a combination shop and art gallery where you can view works by First Nations, Métis and Inuit artists. Well worth a visit.

Wakefield Confectionery

817 Riverside Road, Wakefield

Just north of the village centre is the legendary Wakefield Confectionery, where you can stock up on sweet treats of all kinds. Chocolate, fudge, maple productions, jams and jellies … It’s a candy store for grownups!

End of the Line

1 Manse Street, Wakefield

Just down the road from the Confectionery is the End of the Line boutique, your destination for unique local creations, from clothing and jewellery to pottery and gift items. Best of all, everything in the store is eco-friendly.

Chelsea's art galleries, boutiques, cafés, restaurants and other gourmet stops give the town an incomparable charm that is felt year round.


Maison Tivoli

501 Route 105, Suite, 200, Chelsea

Next stop: Chelsea and Maison Tivoli, a beautiful shop that sells quality imported goods. Whether you’re looking for a gift for someone else, something for your home, or a treat for yourself, you’re sure to find it here.

Doozy Candle

181 Old Chelsea Road, Chelsea

Closer to the village centre is Doozy Candle. If you’re a fan of candles and like to shop local, this is the place! Handcrafted by local artists using top-quality wax, their candles are not only beautiful, but smell fantastic. Available in a variety of scents.

La Fab

212 Old Chelsea Road, Chelsea

Well known in Chelsea as a studio space and public art gallery, La Fab also houses a beautiful boutique where you’ll find creations by some 50 local artists and artisans. Jewellery, photographs, pottery, sculptures, books and music are just a few of the treasures to be discovered!

One last stop!

To end your day in style, settle in at the Chelsea Pub over a plate of nachos and a cold beer, or enjoy a wonderful dessert and coffee at Biscotti & cie.
