Youth crafters take the spotlight at unique Courtenay event

Don’t get your tinsel in a tangle, come shop at the at the 10th Annual Gnarly Little Christmas Craft Fair featuring youth crafters and get great homemade gifts and stocking stuffers.

Courtenay Recreation’s The LINC Youth Centre is hosting the fair at the Lewis Centre, Saturday, Dec. 2, from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Each year the craft fair showcases talented youth aged nine to 19. More than 30 vendors will be selling their wares including baking, crafts, woodwork, jewellery, stocking stuffers, photography and more.

“I look forward every year to seeing the creative handmade items new youth entrepreneurs bring to the fair; we also have repeat vendors who refine their crafts and presentation each year,” said Alexis Forbes, youth services co-ordinator at The LINC. “I encourage everyone to come and support youth in their entrepreneurial efforts; I think shoppers will be impressed by the level of skill of the items for sale.”

Make The Gnarly Little Craft Fair a destination during your holiday shopping. If you have children, time your craft fair visit with the Children’s Christmas Party (ages 9 years & under) at 1 p.m. to see magician Greg Ladret, and of course, Santa!
