Apple Ament is looking after the Christmas Store

Christmas Shop helps small businesses in Terrace, B.C.

The entire project stemmed from a common desire to see a livelier downtown for the holidays.

The Christmas Shop, an enterprise of Terrace’s 100 Years Celebration Committee, is located at 4605 Lakelse Ave. in the old Ev’s Menswear Building.

It is meant to boost local small businesses, with an eye out for the market folk, artists and artisans.

The Christmas Shop began with 10 and now has 20 local small businesses involved, says organizer Apple Ament.

The list includes Cindy’s Sweet Delights, Al Richardson Photography, Alphabet Art Letter Photos, Ament’s Attic, Awe Gypsy Jewellery, Burga’s Sunset Gourmet, Daratha Originals, JJ’s Woodart, Leanne Joy Creations, Little House Antiques, Linens & Candles, Lynne Christiansen Arts, Pinoy Crafts, Rainbow Mountain Arts Pottery & Photography, Randy Penner Arts, ReBecca Coffee Art & Watercolours, Sapun Naturals, Tara Irwin’s Art, Terrace Historical Society, Vestiges, Wreaths by Lori

There are not only goods, but also some services are offered by appointment at The Christmas Shop.

Ewa of Awe Gypsy Jewellery offers seated-massage and Lady Ament of Ament’s Attic offers many kinds of psychic readings, including tea-leaves, palmistry, tarot, and seer-stone crystal readings.

The entire project stemmed from a common desire to see a livelier downtown for the holidays. The 100th Year Anniversary Committee responded to that, and chose a very Merry Christmas to finish off Terrace’s centennial celebrations. They began that endeavour by dressing windows in empty storefronts, but when talking with the owner of one building, he wondered if there might be a way to fill the space with crafters for the season.

From there the idea snowballed to become a fantastic indoor market, which is helping to spread holiday cheer (and information about local small businesses) in the heart of downtown.
