Once Upon a Time Pet Shelter Filming Location little known facts and Secrets

Take a look at the picture of the shop next to Granny’s Diner in Storybrooke. It was originally called “Worthington’s Haberdashery (Suits Hats Ties),” but only for a brief time.


This location suddenly changed to the Pet Shelter for the David and Mary Margaret storyline in Season 1.


Storybrooke Pet Shelter Interior 2rev

When the shop space wasn’t used for filming it was used by the cast and crew to stay warm during the cold winters of Vancouver, B.C. It also was used for temporary storage. For example, when we visited Steveston in 2012, I saw the Game of Thorns door from “The Crocodile” inside the Pet Shelter location on the floor.

Our bluebirds in Steveston have chirped that the Pet Shelter location did revert back to it’s original “Worthington’s Haberdashery (Suits Hats Ties)” signage and window late in Season 2.

When we return to Storybrooke later on in Season 3, keep an eye out for what that location stays or becomes.

Who’s Behind Mary Margaret’s Door? OUAT Video

As we know, portions of ABC’s hit drama, Once Upon a Time are filmed in The Bridge Studios in Vancouver BC, including Mary Margaret’s apartment. Continuity in a television is difficult sometimes, but the behind the scenes crew try their best.

In this video, you will see scenes showing people entering (and some trying to enter) through Mary Margaret’s apartment door. Part of the fun is to be reminded of who these people coming to see Mary Margaret and Emma were and why.

As to continuity issues, one is the window you see when Mary Margaret’s door opens. At first you might think it was just a mistake, maybe a handyman working for Mr. Gold wanted to change the window here and there, but after awhile its pretty funny to see the new window when Mary Margaret’s door opens.

One more thing, I did include a link to one more scene at the end of the video, so be sure to watch all the way to the end.

OUAT – Lana Parrilla, Vancouver, Steveston, Burgers, Fish & Chips and More

You wouldn’t want to meet this steely-eyed villainess in a dark alley. But in the light of day, you’re more likely to find actress Lana Parrilla chowing down on a decked-out burger than plotting world domination

Parrilla plays the Evil Queen (alter ego Mayor Regina Mills) on ABC’s hit show Once Upon a Time, which weaves classic fairytale archetypes with a modern-day plotline. As a TV veteran, Parrilla has some big-name credits under her belt, including Lost, NYPD Blue, Six Feet Under and 24. But she can’t get enough of shooting Once Upon a Time on location in picturesque Steveston, a 20-minute drive from downtown Vancouver. “Steveston is the cutest little town,” she says.

When she’s not corseted into a full gothic get-up, Parrilla goes for upscale European designers and heads to sleek boutiques on shopping trips around Vancouver. High-fashion Misch in South Granville is a favourite haunt, as well as Gravitypope in Kitsilano. When she’s downtown, Parrilla hits up Leone or Holt Renfrew.
