If you’ve visited the Courtenay and District Museum gift shop recently you’ll know what we’re talking about when we say—“It looks great!”

With the help of Visitor Services Manager, Gillian Miller, we’ve sourced more one-of-a-kind items that are making the gift shop a unique place to shop in the valley.

From maps, to great history and children’s books, to hand-made stuffies of elasmosaurs and ammonites, to children’s bear and wolf hats for the fall, sales have increased. Grrrrr! And it all helps support museum programming. Bonus if you buy a membership because it’s 15% off for most items.

Try it, you’ll like it!
