About the Shop
The CVAG Gift Shop offers one of the best selections of high quality handmade crafts and artwork on Vancouver Island and is the gallery’s single most important fundraiser. Known as the destination for locally made personal and significant occasion gifts, the shop features the best of Comox Valley-produced arts and crafts, with a wide selection of items to suit all tastes and budgets. Artisan work includes pottery, glass, jewelry, metal work, wood work, fabric art, paintings, prints, art cards and more.
The Gift Shop sources work from close to one hundred artists, some of whom have been selling work in the shop for a great number of years, and new artists are added regularly. Excellent relationships with participating artisans contribute to the success of this largely consignment retail venue. Gift shop customers from home and away are dedicated to shopping locally and can expect personalized customer service. Local customers bring family and friends in to visit both the Gallery and Gift Shop and we see many repeat visitors each year.
