The Peace Arch Hospital Auxiliary is busy with many opportunities to help us with our gift giving.

The Superfluity shop has lots of great deals for the whole family.

On the main floor they have clothing and housewares along with books and some small furniture. On the second floor is the boutique that has lots of festive clothing for your special holiday event.

There are all kinds of gifts from stuffed animals for the young people, magazines for your favorite reader and decorations for the home. The shop has lots of interesting hostess gifts for the happy shopper.

The gift shop always has a selection of handmade baby clothes for the newest member of the family.

These baby clothes are always welcomed by a new family.

Our Flower Power group has a selection of Christmas flower and table arrangements for sale.

These are kept refrigerated and are made by volunteers at the hospital.
