It’s said that good things come in small packages, and in the case of coming across a virtual mother lode of choice gift ideas and “possessibles,” then the bustling South Slocan hub of Crescent Valley is the area and Spruce Gum Gifts is the place.

This is where you’ll find an eclectic assortment, painstakingly assembled to the level you may never find elsewhere – pottery by Rose Hodwitz of Shoreacres… necklaces and earrings by Holly Jordahl, plus the outstanding aboriginal art of Wayne George of Thrums.

Willow branch furniture and paintings by valley resident Cindy Moser have recently joined the collection of items you’ll want to make a point of checking out, at gift-giving time or anytime for that matter.

“I also carry fair trade gift items… global giftware… eco-friendly gifts,” explains proprietor Marion Perepolkin. “It encompasses different places in the world as well as a strong emphasis on local artists.”

Spruce Gum Gifts is obviously a valuable connection for the shopper, but also for any interested artists that may want to get their work seen and purchased.

“What we’re interested in is more consignments from local artisans,” Marion added.

Remember Spruce Gum Gifts when special occasions arise, and remember any occasion will be made special just by dropping in.
