Christmas presents made with love

If the commercialisation of Christmas makes you groan inwardly, but you dont want to be labelled a scrooge when you dont hand over a pile of presents, then visit the Lismore Anglican Parish Christmas Shop.

Here you will find a wonderful selection of Christmas gifts made with love by dedicated knitters, crocheters and craftswomen who meet once a month to create these beautiful treasures.

Even more rewarding is the fact that the money you spend goes directly to Lismores Anglican Parish and not into the well-lined pockets of some corporate giant.

Christmas novelties, hand embroidered towels, hand knitted clothes for babies, children and adults, cushions, crochet doilies, Christmas tablecloths and lavender gift packs are just some of the goods that will be on sale. Plus there will be delectable home cooking, including Christmas puddings and cakes, and jams and pickles to serve on Christmas Day.

In a further show of goodwill to all, no plastic bags are used. All gifts come lovingly wrapped in drawstring fabric bags made from material donated to the Parish.

The Lismore Anglican Parish Christmas Shop will be open from next Monday, November 13 to Saturday, November 25 at 52 Magellan Street, Lismore. Opening hours are Monday to Friday from 9am-5pm and Saturday from 9am-12noon.
