Masset’s answer to Black Friday

The Christmas market at The Ground coffee shop is Masset’s answer to “Black Friday” shopping, but with all-local talent.

The Christmas market at The Ground coffee shop is Masset’s answer to “Black Friday” shopping, but with all-local talent.

From 7 to 9 p.m. on Nov. 25, there will be 12 to 15 vendors at The Ground selling local and homemade items.

Over the years, this has been a hugely successful event, with everything from infused vinegar, soap, pottery, and knitted goods for sale.

Many of the items are one of a kind. People have been known to line up outside, ready for the 7 p.m. opening.

Carey Newell and Dan Peebles have owned The Ground in Masset since July 2010.

This is Masset’s only coffee shop, and it is a busy place, with people meeting each other in the locally-run space. Informal gatherings, job interviews, people with computers working away, and some people just drinking their favourite brew, are some of the activities you might see on any given day.

The Ground’s Nov. 25 market kicks off the first Christmas market of the season on Haida Gwaii.

If you’ve gone before, you know how busy it is, and how quickly items sell. If this is your first time, be ready to fall in love with presents for yourself, your family, and friends. See you there.
