Staff and volunteers at the Campbell River Art Gallery decked the halls for the 11th Annual Christmas Arts and Crafts Market.

The Victorian-themed Christmas Market opened yesterday. With at least 21 new artisans featured, the Market will be bigger and better than ever and will provide Christmas shoppers with the opportunity to purchase quality handcrafts, support local artisans and support the Campbell River Art Gallery.

The Market will be open from Monday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. until Christmas Eve.

The Gallery is planning artisan demos every Saturday from 1-3 p.m. during the Christmas Market, so make sure to stop in and see an artisan at work!

Gallery staff are also looking forward to a fun evening Friday, Dec. 2 to coincide with the Downtown BIA’s Starlight Shopping. The Market will be open until 8 p.m. and volunteers will be on hand from 6 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. making Christmas cards with members of the public.

Shoppers will be able to look forward to a huge selection of amazing work this season.

There will be everything from fine jewellery to handmade soaps, beautiful woodwork, stunning pottery, and much more.

Gallery staff and volunteers look forward to celebrating the season with you at the Christmas Market!
