Mistletoe Market evening shopping extended

Rollin Art Centre hoping to smash last year’s sales

Join us at Mistletoe Market for an extended late night shopping, Thursday Dec. 22 from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. We are trying to SMASH last year’s sales and thought a nicer way to do so would be another late night.

This year we have over 75 local artists who have gifts on sale at the Rollin Art Centre. You can choose from hundreds of beautifully hand-made gifts for the holidays. All locally made, the market has something for everyone on your list: scarves, purses, dish towels, soaps, lotions, scrubs, pottery, felting, carved records, jewellery, scarves, laser wood carvings, photographs, paintings, etched glass, quilted stockings, holiday cards, ornaments and wall hangings.

Come visit us at the Rollin Art Center to explore the beautifully-lit gardens and enjoy Mistletoe Market in the gallery
