The Christmas season is upon us. There was a craft sale open house at Doris Scarff’s from Nov. 27 – 29. Trevor Harder had Watkins products for sale, Lorraine Wood’s daughter was selling handmade jewellery, Barb Ferguson’s beautiful paintings were on display, and Scarff had home sewing such as pillows, bag holders, kitchen towels, rag rugs, etc. for sale.

Serenity Music had a display and a phone number was given for anyone wishing to buy tickets.

Scarff said that her favourite day was when Shannon Lyon and John Evans, who perform at Serenity, came and put on a little music session. They took turns singing as there was only one guitar between them. Lyon sold some of his CDs as well.

Hilda Reimer held her annual Christmas in the Cottage from Nov. 27 – Dec. 3. Reimer was the only vendor and had created everything that was for sale. A lot of it was glassware. She also had her own photographs of surrounding places available for customers. Reimer had made some of her pictures into 2015 calendars. She had a steady stream of customers.
