Craft Creations has popped up for the 25th year, this time in the former Dick Smith premises on Victoria Ave.

The shop is the brainchild of a group of regional arts and crafts people who rent retail premises every year in the lead-up to Christmas and into the new year. This year the shop is stocking items from 22 contributors.

"We've got a huge variety in the shop, from a collection of items made from vinyl records through to wood turning," spokeswoman Mez Corbett said.

"There's also a collectibles corner of antiques with some rare items. We have an outstanding quality of goods and artfare so come in and become 'unstuck' for Christmas unique gifts."


The shop sells locally produced art, jams and honey, pet toys, clothing, chocolates, magnets, dreamcatchers and an array of other items.

It is staffed on a volunteer roster system by members of the group. The shop is open 9am-5pm on weekdays and 10am-2pm on Saturdays. Closer to Christmas the shop will also open on Sundays.
