Summer traffic is busy in the gift shop and gifts are going all over the world. People visiting from other parts of Canada, Europe and the Pacific stop in and pick up gifts to take home. Local residents visit to find items for family and friends.
We have new shipments of beautiful hoodies for late summer with great hummingbird and salmon designs. We’re also carrying a new line of cards and note pads from Yellow Bird, designed and distributed from North Vancouver. To add to our stuffed animal zoo, we’ve gone local with a huge ammonite and giant hippo made by Ding Ding Dillio Crafts from Courtenay. Another local company, Giggling Gertie and Co from Royston, has created bunting perfect for celebrations and decoration and has produced rustic beach-hut bird houses and one of a kind gifts.
