The annual Christmas Craft Fair at the Big Yellow Hall is generally well-attended and runs from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. this Saturday.

Merville Christmas Craft Fair this weekend

Doors open to the public at 9 a.m. and it will be non stop shopping until 1 p.m. Saturday

Hear Ye! Hear Ye!

All you Christmas crafters and shoppers, the Christmas craft fair season continues at the Big Yellow Merville Hall on Saturday, Nov. 25.

The hall will be chock full of delightful crafts for your shopping pleasure so be sure to get there early to get the best choice of Christmas chattels. Situated right on the main highway between Campbell River and Courtenay, the hall is ideally placed to attract all sorts of drive-by traffic. There is plenty of parking and a new second exit to the highway from the field which greatly eases traffic congestion.

The ornate doors of the hall will swing open for the public at 9 a.m. and it will be non stop shopping until 1 p.m. The hall’s genial gremlins have been busy painting the whole interior and, with the new, brighter lighting, the place looks really, really sharp. The kitchen will be open with drinks and food to keep the munchies at bay and we might even have some fiddlers busking. Who could ask for more?

The fair is generally a sellout every year, so vendors had better book their table soon. Tables are $25 each and vendors are encouraged to arrive by 8 a.m. sharp to corner their spot and set up their display. Doors will be flung open at 9:00 for the eager patrons.

For information, call 250-339-4249 or check out the website www.mervillehall.ca, where you can also pay on line for your table.
