Fernie Arts Co-op will be holding its annual pre-Christmas, ‘we-pay-the-tax’ sale this week.

Anyone looking for a special present for someone or just a gift to themselves will be able to come away with a deal on December 7 from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.

The artists themselves will also be there from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. to give a little extra insight into their work. The Co-op offers shoppers free gift wrapping during the holiday season.

“We have something for everyone,” said Jeanne Parker, artist and Co-op member. “Our items are well-priced, and many feature local scenery and landmarks”.

The co-op is also holding a draw to give people the chance to win some of the artwork and artifacts.

When you buy at the Arts Co-op, you’re supporting locally-based artists. The Co-op features over 30 artists working in a wide variety of media including painting, pottery, glass, jewelry, photography, wood and handmade soap, among others.
