The pop-up shops at the Arbor Gallery are up and running, offering a wide range of unique gifts for the holiday season. While there, visitors can also enjoy the continuing exhibitions – Walking in my Yesterdays, paintings by Susie Fairbrother and Attune, photographs by Lauren Michelle Levesque.

The weekend of November 18 and 19 will see the return of two popular pop-up artisan vendors – Garnet Millar and Annie and Marie-Eve Bergevin.  Millar offers exquisite stained and fused glass objects, ranging from window decorations and decorative bowls and platters to coasters, jewellery and tree ornaments.

Annie and Marie-Eve Bergevin’s handmade Christmas decorations were very popular last year.  Using natural and man-made materials, they have created centrepieces, wall decorations and more.

The pop-ups not only feature one-of-a-kind and affordable gifts but support local artists and artisans.
