There’s nothing quite like Christmas at Hycroft.
While this year’s festivities might look a little different, there’s still tons of holiday cheer to be found in this season’s virtual celebrations.
Taking place between now and December 13, the event is raising funds for the Hycroft Heritage Preservation Foundation, which helps preserve and maintain one of the city’s most historic sites.
Despite the unprecedented circumstances, Hycroft is thrilled to open its doors to the community in the form of a virtual marketplace where people can find some of the best local food, gifts, and decorations around.
The Christmas Shoppe is brimming with everything you need to make your home feel festive — including wreaths, stocking fillers, holiday cards, gift bags, ornaments, and tags.
New to this year’s event are Boxed Gift Collections, which each include a hand-picked assortment of locally-made treats from some of BC’s wonderful artisans. From that person on your list who has everything to your foodie friends, the gift boxes are perfect for treating loved ones to an array of delights they won’t find at their local grocer.
For example, the Holiday Hostess Collection — ideal for the hostess with the mostess in your circle — is packed with locally-made raspberry and rose jam, immunity loose tea, blackberry and ginger cordial, and classic Scottish shortbread cookies that are hand-cut in Victoria.
One-of-a-kind gifts, like art, luxury skincare, and holiday centrepieces, also await at the online silent auction, which is on until December 13 at 4 pm.
For those looking to envelop their home in a warm glow over the holidays, there’s the Hycroft Home Holiday Collection which is stacked with seasonal soy candles, cedarwood and pine home fragrance, nourishing body soap, beeswax wraps, and more.
Plus, don’t forget to reward your thoughtfulness with a treat for yourself from Hycroft’s Artisan Marketplace.
This year, Hycroft Bistro — one of Vancouver’s hidden foodie gems — is making holiday cooking easy with their delicious menu of frozen meals and takeaway dinners. Think butternut squash soup with pumpkin seed pesto and traditional shepherd’s pie. There’s even a complete dinner for two with traditional pork schnitzel and Black Forest tiramisu dessert.
To collect orders of any kind, shoppers can book a timeslot for curbside pick-up from the Hycroft parking lot between now and December 13.
All proceeds from the silent auction, as well as any profits from this year’s online marketplace, will go towards preserving this important heritage site so that people can continue to enjoy the Hycroft for generations to come.
