Last Chance Arts & Crafts Sale goes this weekend at the Comox Rec Center

Last Chance for arts and crafts

Comox Recreation Centre on Dec. 6 and 7

This is it!  Your last opportunity to buy beautiful, handcrafted gifts and goodies for everyone on your Christmas list. The Last Chance Arts & Crafts Fair will be in the Comox Recreation Centre on Dec. 6 and 7.

The organizers have saved the best for last. This fair is packed with crafters and artists anxious to provide quality, handmade gifts and goodies for all those spontaneous shoppers looking for those hard-to-find items.

This 10th annual fair is certain to have something for everyone.

For that nature-lover on your list, be sure to check out the fireside fork for both campfire and barbecued hot dogs.

There will be award-winning photography and artwork created by local artists. The artwork includes works done in pen and ink, acrylic, watercolors and oils. There is even wearable art.

And, if you like First Nations artists you just have to come see the contemporary Salish art.

The show will feature a range of different beauty and organic bath products including handmade soaps, lotions and healing balms.

And, whether you are shopping for children or adults, look forward to the fair’s selection of knitted and crocheted items.

For your special shopping experience, the local author of a selection of adult books, and the local author and local illustrator of a series of children’s books will be on hand to autograph your Christmas selection.

We all know that you can never go wrong with something practical, and so, the fair will feature a wide range of handcrafted apparel and home décor.  Check out the fleece, felted, hand-knit and faux fur scarves, purses, neck warmers, jackets, vests, baby items, hand-knit clothing and sweaters.

There are even wooden-ruler-growth-charts.

For those looking for that special touch for the home, there will be an eclectic selection of hand-crafted glass, locally made pottery, rock warming trays, cozies, quilted items, beeswax candles,  wood carvings, tree ornaments, and even gifts for your favourite four-legged companion.

A perfect hostess gift comes in the form of homemade jams, hot sauces and balsamic vinegars, chutneys, mustard, hand-blended spices and baked goodies.

And, jewelry – there will be beautiful jewelry.

With Christmas just around the corner, you are sure to get into the spirit while pursuing the selection of assorted Christmas gifts.  Celebrate the beginning of the holidays by shopping in a relaxed and inviting atmosphere.  Enjoy Christmas music, the aroma of holiday goodies, and feel free to take a break with refreshments from Gourmet Island Chef.

The fair’s hours are Saturday, Dec. 6 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, Dec. 7 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.  The Comox Recreation Centre is located at 1844 Noel Ave. in Comox.
