A Vancouver tradition for over 40 years, Christmas at Hycroft is coming up this month, where you can explore and shop through three decorated floors of this beautiful and historic Edwardian mansion. Inside you’ll find a variety of boutiques, crafters and over 30 local artisans. Outside in the courtyard, find live entertainment, more vendors, and the Emelle’s Catering Trailer.
