Did you know that the Arts Centre is a treasure trove of locally made gifts? Right in the lobby, you’ll find pottery, jewelry, paintings and prints, cushions, hats and scarves, woven baskets, monster stuffies, and more. This is the perfect place to find a little extra for a stocking and something a little sparkly for those festive parties, all the way to filling that bare wall or display case with an original piece of art.
For the Tea and Coffee Lover
You know what makes me smile every morning? My favourite mug. Especially if it contains the first cup of tea of the day. Make someone think of you every morning with a handmade, unique piece of pottery made by local potters Vincent Massey and Denise Hughes.
For the Jewelry Lover
From the wooden wonders of Mana Designs to the re-purposing skills of re:creation‘s range, leather wristbands by Halabay, the twinkling jewels of the Reminded line, and the distinctive Simply Swedish collection – you can’t go far wrong with a piece of jewelry from the Arts Centre.
For the Art Lover
For the Kids
Pick up a colouring book with a real Whistler spin, stuffie toys that were born in the mountains, and fun animal prints that will inspire your own little artist to pick up a paintbrush.
For the Stylist
For the Wow Factor
If you’re looking to wow someone on your list this festive season then take a look at the beautiful bears created by Elizabeth Harris, or a hand-carved maple wood bowl made by Peter Joachim Scheunert, the Kermode Carver.
It’s definitely worth a stop in at the gift shop at the Arts Centre if you’re after something unique, handmade, and sure to put you on Santa’s nice list. Happy shopping!
