The big Christmas in Mulhurst sale is coming up soon.

It’s no secret one of the biggest and best regional Christmas craft sales is coming up soon in Mulhurst Bay. The 9th annual Christmas in Mulhurst Bay Craft sale will be held Dec. 3 and 4, along with the very popular holiday home tours.

Volunteer Brenda Knutson said the Christmas sale, held at the Mulhurst Community hall, is entering its ninth year and features over 50 vendors in one place. “It’s a very popular show, so normally we’re already booked in September,” she said by phone Nov. 16.

Knutson said the selection of merchandise is vast, and ranges from crafts, baking, jams and clothing to knitting, alpaca products, chocolate and jewelry plus much more. “It’s a nice, broad base of people,” said Knutson.

As well, Knutson noted there is no admission to the craft sale, but organizers would be delighted if visitors brought a non-perishable food item for donation to the Wetaskiwin Food Bank.

Along with the craft sale will also be the chance to once again tour area homes that have had serious Christmas decoration treatment. “When you done securing all you need, purchase a House Tour Ticket and do not miss the homes on display this season,” stated Knutson in an email.

“Many new homes have joined us with many new ideas for you. Walk through these homes, see the spirit of the season displayed in each one. You will not be disappointed in making this trip a day in your holiday season.” Knutson said these homes have virtually every room decorated for the holidays and they usually host over 100 guests every year. “We’re hoping to increase that this year,” she added.

She added that tickets for the tours can be bought at the Craft sale or pre-purchased at the Mulhurst Bay Post Office, $20 per person, $10 per child up to the age of 12. Funds raised through the home tours go to benefit The Mulhurst Bay Christmas Elves group.

Hours are Dec. 3 craft sale from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., house tours from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Dec. 4 craft sale from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., house tours from noon to 5 p.m.
