Qualicum Beach Museum archives volunteers Penny Cumberland and Shirley Finstad showcase some new items at the gift shop.

Qualicum Beach Museum goes mad

Gift shop to hold one-night Moonlight Madness sale Thursday

The Qualicum Beach Museum will stay open late this Thursday for its own Moonlight Madness event.

On Dec. 10 the museum along Beach Road will be open from 5 to 8 p.m., giving residents an extra opportunity to check out their new renovations and shop the gift store for Christmas.

Museum manager Netanja Waddell said the museum’s gift shop has been recently expanded and provides a great place to look for gifts this holiday season.

“We’ve brought in all kinds of new items relevant to our local area,” said Waddell, noting the gift shop is brimming with cutting boats and kitchen utensils made from local Vancouver Island wood, books about Qualicum Beach, West Coast-inspired jewellery, scarves, ties and decorative items.

The museum relies on not only donations and admission from the community, but also gift shop sales.

“We appreciate all the support we can get,” said Waddell, adding Thursday evening will be a great after-hours opportunity to shop and check out all the new exhibits.

The Qualicum Beach Museum’s winter hours are Tuesday and Thursday from 1-4 p.m. It is located at 587 Beach Road in Qualicum Beach. For more information please contact the museum at 250-752-5533 or visit www.qbmuseum.ca.
