Whether it’s original art

Annual Christmas Gift Tour runs this weekend

The 17th annual Christmas Gift Tour runs this weekend (Nov. 18-20), and is a great chance to get going on your holiday shopping if you haven’t already.

This local event has stood the test of time and grown bigger each year and gives the public the opportunity to meet the artists and crafters in person as well as connect with all your favourite home-based businesses.

Whether it’s original art, hand knitted lovelies, homemade baking and Christmas decorations or one-of-a-kind jewelry, hand-blown glass, wood crafts, sewing, wonderful artisan soaps, everyone is guaranteed to find something that tickles their fancy. The tour includes all of your favourite home-based businesses as well, from La Casita & Co (made in Campbell River), do Terra, local Scentsy representatives and Sunset Gourmet, just to name just a few.

There is sure to be something for everyone on your list, so get together with friends or family and have a great day touring this festive annual event.

You can find the map to this year’s tour on page 14 in this edition of the Mirror.

Meanwhile, the Museum at Campbell River is inviting the public to come and meet some local artists at Artists on Site as part of Campbell River’s Christmas Gift Tour.

This annual event invites artists to be on-site to demonstrate their work and be available to answer questions about their art and exhibit some of their latest creations.

Shoppers have an opportunity to purchase quality hand made products while supporting the artists and the museum. This year Artists on Site will be this Saturday, Nov. 19 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. as part of Campbell River’s Christmas Gift Tour

There will be basketry, painting, wood turning, jewellery, candles and more. A highlight in past years has been seeing Master Drum Maker Jorge Lewis (pictured left) at work, and Lewis has confirmed he will be on site again this year.

For more information about this event call the Museum at Campbell River Gift Shop at 250-287-3103, or head online to www.crmuseum.ca.
