Locally owned shops open doors for Chilliwack Christmas Craft Crawl

The 17th annual self-guided event takes place Nov. 21 to 24 at six locations throughout Chilliwack

The 17th Annual Chilliwack Christmas Craft Crawl returns this weekend.

Two new stops are included in this year’s lineup of locations: Anita’s Bread & Coffee and the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve.

Anita’s opened their new coffee shop filled with their breads, pastries and coffee on South Sumas Road. The Heron Reserve Gift Shop will feature two local artists: Lawrence Dirks of the Charcuterie Hut with his artistic serving boards, as well as Donna Bruggen-Cate who makes one-of-a-kind wired art trees.

Pottery by Kelly is back with her functional pieces like bowls, mugs and other artsy gifts. Chilliwack River Valley Natural Honey, with their local honey, gift baskets and sweet treats, is an old favourite. Winks Home Gift and Baby is beautifully decorated with all you need for this coming season, as well as a baby loft and lovely jewelry. And one of the originals, Rustic Soap Co’s soap shack is filled to the brim with all the seasonal favourites…lotion, candles, baby products and, of course, soap.

The crawl is a favourite for many locals and out-of-towners. Folks can pick up an invite (which has a map on it) at any of the locations and start your self-guided crawl. Have your invite stamped at each location for your chance to win the grand prize (displayed at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve). There’s also the “Early Bird Thursday” giveaway with a door prize at each location.

Every year the Chilliwack Christmas Craft Crawl supports a charity, and this year it’s Cyrus Centre — a local place that helps vulnerable and homeless youth in our community. Cash donations are accepted at each stop.

Chilliwack Christmas Craft Crawl hours are: Nov. 21 to 23 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, Nov. 24 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
