Chilliwack Christmas Craft Crawl showcases best of local shops

Vintage items, specialty foods and handmade crafts among goodies to find along annual crawl

It’s the most wonderful time of the year — to support small businesses.

The 15th Annual Chilliwack Christmas Craft Crawl is taking place next weekend, offering four days of shopping, dining and exploring some of the city’s best treasures. The event is a popular one, with seven unique businesses taking part. And by taking part, you can make the holidays a little brighter for local youth.

This year, the Craft Crawl has chosen the Cyrus Centre as their local charity. The centre is the community’s only shelter for youth, housing some of the most vulnerable people in society. Last year, the Craft Crawl raised more than $1,700 through donations, and they hope to reach that mark again this year.

The stops on the crawl include Greendale Herb & Vine, the Rustic Soap Co., Willow Creek Vineyard, Chilliwack River Valley Natural Honey Ltd., New Moon Tea Co., the Little Beetle Bistro, and Winks Home Gifts. Among those shops, you’ll find gifts such as fair trade coffee, beeswax candles, specialty vinegars, handcrafted teas, natural soaps and body care products, chocolate, art, vintage items, beautiful baby gifts and designer tableware.

There will also be a chance for gift basket draws. Also, pick up an invite at any of the attractions and have it stamped by at least six of the business for your chance to win the grand prize.

The Chilliwack Christmas Craft Crawl runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Nov. 23, 24 and 25, and from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Nov. 26.
