Christmas market set to open
The Campbell River Art Gallery’s festive Christmas Arts and Crafts Market opens Thursday, Nov. 8 from 12 - 8:00 p.m., with a mulled soft apple cider punch to warm you after 5 p.m. as you browse through this exceptional boutique.
There are more than 80 artisans represented in this annual event, which runs from November 8 through to Christmas Eve.
As always, many new artisans have been added to the mix. You’ll find handmade soaps, and a wide selection of finely crafted jewelry and woodwork, functional and decorative pottery, knit wear, handmade candles, gourmet food products, and much more.
The Market, which takes over the Gallery’s main exhibition hall, is open Monday to Saturday from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. It’s open late on opening day, until 8 p.m., and again during the Downtown BIA’s Starlight Shopping event on November 30.
During the latter, staff and volunteers will be on hand to help people of all ages make handmade Christmas cards. All the action at the Gallery at Christmas is sponsored by Chan Nowosad Boates, Chartered Accountants.
Another fun feature of this Market is the artisan demos every Saturday from 1 - 3 p.m., giving the public a chance to meet some of the crafters and to learn about their materials and techniques.
Gallery staff and volunteers look forward to celebrating the season with you at the Christmas Market.
