Don’t despair — head to the fair

Artisans host last minute craft fair Sunday at Qualicum Beach Community Hall

Kicking yourself for having missed out on the many holiday craft fairs held on the mid-Island the past month?

Well, you’ve got one more chance.

Qualicum Beach artisans will host their Last-minute Shoppers’ Craft Fair Sunday, Dec. 20. And this time, they really mean it.

The first of two Last-minute Shoppers’ Craft Fairs was held last Sunday at Qualicum Beach Community Hall. The final fair returns to the Community Hall this Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The intimate fair will feature more than 20 local crafters and food artisans, and hot food will also be available for purchase by those still seeking that perfect gift for others or for themselves.

For more information, call 250-240-1233. Qualicum Beach Community Hall is located at 644 Memorial Ave. in Qualicum Beach.
