Haven Living held its two-year anniversary event last Thursday, selling out tickets for a full house.

The event featured vendors from the Alberni Valley, Qualicum Beach and Nanaimo, as well as a photo booth, appetizers and a hot chocolate bar.

Haven Living and Tashia Potter Photography also teamed up with the Blue Marlin Inn and the Young Professionals of Alberni Valley to hold a beer and burger social and fundraiser for Movember on Nov. 29.

Tashia Potter took photos of the participants in the “Own the Mo” contest. The winner of the best moustache at the event was Rob Gentleman, who was the recipient of a hot shave from Hone & Strop. Darin Oscienny won the online voting for best moustache, and received a shaving kit from Haven Living, two Twin City brewing glasses and a framed portrait.

Haven Living will be moving downtown in the new year, to a renovated location on the corner of Third Avenue and Argyle Street.
