Beansprouts kids boutique

Eco-friendly toys and clothing for discerning parents and fashion-forward kids.

Main Street’s Beansprouts offers eco-friendly toys and clothing for discerning parents and fashion-forward kids

Shopping for your children can sometimes be an exercise in frustration. Hefty prices combined with mass-produced clothes can deter even the most determined of shoppers.

And then there are the stores that offer something unique. Something personal. Maybe something slightly used, but still in top shape. A store that sells quality consignment alongside eco-friendly and locally made clothes. Toys together with shoes. Organic cotton beside waterproof wear. A store that offers change tables just in case your wee one needs a new diaper. Welcome to Beansprouts


4305 Main St, Vancouver




Located on Main Street since 2003, Beansprouts is owned and operated by Angie Heinz. Decorated in earthy tones creating an inviting atmosphere, it has become a community staple.

“I love walking over to Beansprouts,” says local resident Jackie Howard. “It feels like my kids are constantly growing and always in need of some new item. At Beansprouts, I can find what I need and not pay a fortune for it.”

As you walk along the west side of Main St, you will know you have reached Beansprouts before you read the signage—the fancy window bars gives it away: They’re shaped like bean sprouts!
