Want to give the little people in your life something extra special this holiday season???   Bring them to the Kids Christmas Shoppe at the Old Strathcona Antique Mall on November 26 or 27 for a “secret” shopping experience.


This “top secret” area where only children, aged 3-12, (and grandmother volunteers) are allowed is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, November 26 and Sunday, November 27. Guardians register their children onsite with the GANG (Grandmothers of Alberta for a New Generation) and are assigned a one-on-one shopper/grandmother.  The grandmother and child walk amongst the gifts and select ones appropriate for the folks on the child’s list.  Once complete, the child goes to the “checkout” with the grandmother and pays cash (no GST) for the items.  After that, the child visits the grandmother “wrappers” who assist the child in wrapping their gifts and tagging them.  When they are done, the child is delivered back to the registration desk where their guardians are telephoned to collect their child(ren).


The area is curtained off and the Antique Mall’s vendors carefully select gifts appropriate for children to give to parents, grandparents and siblings.  There is no entrance fee.  The gifts are priced at $5, $10, $15 and $20 (majority are $5).  Many of the vendors underprice their items so that the children have really nice gifts to give.The children are very excited to have “secret” presents they can give to family at Christmas and these gifts are extra special because they have been selected by the child themselves, not a parent or guardian.  Parents and kids alike love this event.  We guarantee this is something both the children in your life and the gift recipients will never forget!  A truly memorable Christmas experience!


The GANG https://www.facebook.com/EdmGrans is excited to partner with the Old Strathcona Mall www.Oldstrathconamall.com on this special event. For the adults, the Edmonton Grandmothers will be selling their hand crafted items in a separate area and all of the vendors at the mall will also have great products to choose from. Great gift ideas!
