Christmas craft sale is back

Nowhere in the Lower Mainland can you find handmade crafts at the prices these presenters manage

What’s more fun than Christmas?

Spending Nov. 17, between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., at the Legion for the annual Beta Sigma Phi Christmas Craft Sale.

There are tables and tables full of handmade stocking stuffers — and maybe even the stockings, themselves.

There’s coffee and there are snacks, door prizes and the chance to meet your neighbours who are also on the lookout for interesting crafts that they maybe can’t make themselves.

The Beta Sigma Phi Sorority has organized this craft sale since the ’80s, and, as usual, all of the money you drop in the jar as you come in (there is no charge for admission), plus all the funds raised by selling the tables, will go to make someone’s Holly Days Christmas that much more festive.

“Tis the season” to be saving, and nowhere in the Lower Mainland can you find handmade crafts at the prices these presenters manage.

Come to the Hope Legion hall on Saturday, Nov. 17.  Brighten your holiday — and someone else’s!

Hope, B.C.
