By now most Vancouverites have heard of, visited, and even experienced the spirits of Salmagundi West, a curio shop in the city’s Gastown area. The incredible eclectic collection of unique items Anne Banner sells in her shop, help lend to the entire “paranormal” claim. Salmagundi West may also resolve some of your “I don’t know what to get so & so for Xmas” troubles. If you have not dropped by, please do so @ 321 Cordova St West. Tell them VSPI sent you.
For Vancouver Spooks, this shop is certainly one of mystery and chills. However, during our first investigation (end of July 2014), an early evening one and not the usual overnight exposure, we did not collect paranormal evidence to prove the claim of “spirits”. This doesn't lend to the fact that some team members had personal experiences, which cannot be presented as proof.
