The annual Christmas craft and gift Magic Cottage returns next month and this year will support the Alberni Valley’s Read and Feed program.

Magic Cottage brings together some of the best of local and Island-made wares, all snuggled up in a cosy cottage setting.

Now in its eighth year, this event gives local residents the opportunity to shop for an amazing assortment of affordable, one-of-a-kind items that are locally and Island sourced.

They also have a gift basket draw for a donation to local charity. This year the Cottage will be supporting the Read and Feed program that feeds the tummies and minds of local elementary school kids.

For two weekends only, the Magic Cottage becomes a delightful nook filled with tantalizing treasures. To help chase away the chill you will be treated to a tasty cup of warm apple cider and fresh baked scones.

The cottage, at 3945 Fourth Ave. (between Morton and Maitland) is only open Saturday, Nov. 21 (10 a.m. to 6 p.m.) and Sunday, Nov. 22 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. as well as Saturday, Nov. 28 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 29 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
