The Creative Eye @ the Courtenay Museum Gift Shop

Ever wonder who the creative eye is behind purchasing at the museum gift shop? Gillian Miller, Visitor Services and Gift Shop Manager has a long history of knowing what visitors like. Having formerly managed the Chemainus Information Centre and worked with the Comox Valley Chamber as well as having international tourism experience, Gillian orders items that please most visitors.

Enthusiastic about items made locally or from afar, Gillian says, “I am always looking for new unique gifts. This week, some amazing new items have arrived from the Eric & Christopher line. They’re high quality and made from 100% cotton canvas. They include cushions with sunflowers, lavender, and cute rabbits with bow ties and tutus. The tea-towels are extra large with bright coloured dragonflies, bees, sunflowers and lavender. We also have totes with very sweet rabbits.”

All gift shop proceeds go to museum programming. Happy spring to Gillian and to all!
