Magic Cottage returns to Alberni this weekend

The Magic Cottage in Alberni is open on Saturday, Nov. 19 and Sunday, Nov. 20.

Kristin Wolf will have her display of innovative styles and fashion at the Magic Cottage this weekend on Fourth Avenue.

The annual Magic Cottage will be open for a second weekend this Saturday, Nov. 19 and Sunday, Nov. 20.

The group of artisans who traditionally display their handicrafts at the Magic Cottage—a private home transformed for the weekend—are gathering again with new creations.

“Our crafters have been busy little elves,” one of the Magic Cottage owners said.

“A magical assortment of quality handcrafts and giftware awaits you, all wrapped up in a cosy cottage setting.”

Just in this week are hand-sewn hoods, scarves and jewellery by Gypsy Wolf Designs of Vancouver who have just been featured at Vancouver Fashion Week.

There will also be a new assortment of centerpieces and festive décor to deck the halls, along with lavender and rose sachets, catnip pillows for kitty, lavender owls, and more of the tipsy sock monkey wine bottle covers that sold out two weeks ago.

Don’t forget to enter the draw for a handcrafted necklace with a donation to local charity.

The Magic Cottage is located at 3945 Fourth Ave. between Morton and Maitland streets. The cottage will be open Saturday, Nov. 19 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 20 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Just look for the craft sale signs.
