Starting today, November 1, Cochrane Home Treasures is taking registrations for their Kids Christmas Shopping Event that takes place on Sunday, December 4, 2022.  

The annual event is for children 5-12 years of age who want to do some independent Christmas shopping without the help of a parent or guardian.  

The kids pay just $5 and choose five gifts for the people on their list.  

Caley Breeze, Manager of Cochrane Home Treasures says, “We have little elf helpers who will help them shop if they are younger.” Breeze says the event is just as fun for them as the kids by sharing the excitement and seeing what they pick.  

The event is hugely popular and to avoid disappointment, you must register ahead of time.  

Typically, the Kids Christmas Shopping Event sees about 250 kids sign up and the 30-minute shopping blocks fill up fast.

Email: to register. 

Also, now that another Halloween is in the books, you may be putting away those decorations and looking at your Christmas stuff. 

Perhaps you have too much or are looking to change your Christmas décor, Home Treasures would be more than happy to take your unwanted decorations off of your hands.  

Caley Breeze, Manager of Cochrane Home Treasures says, “We are taking Christmas décor, Christmas trees anything seasonal right now. […] We have a lot of new people in the community that need Christmas trees and decorations.” 

For those that are not familiar with Cochrane Home Treasures, it is a Non-profit Organization second-hand store that funds many worthy causes and initiatives in Cochrane and the surrounding area.

Donations can be dropped off Monday to Saturday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. or Thursdays until 7 p.m. CLOSED Sundays and Statutory holidays.

Cochrane Home Treasures is located at #2, 208 – 5th Avenue.
