Royal Bison Craft & Art Fair

1
8426 Gateway Blvd NW, Edmonton, AB T6E 4B4

This craft sale happens bi-annually, and one of those times is just weeks prior to Christmas. The 2016 winter fair takes place December 2-4 and 9-11 (Fridays 5 to 9 pm, Saturdays 10 to 5 pm and Sundays 10 to 4 pm). At the winter version of the fair, there are usually several vendors with awesome, unique Christmas ornaments. Previous holiday decorations include shotgun shell Christmas lights (and yes, they are awesome). The vendor list does change every year but there are always lots of amazing local artisans, many of which do holiday decorations and Christmas tree ornaments. Admission is only $3 and kids get in for free!

Art Gallery of St Albert

19 Perron St, St. Albert, AB T8N 1E5

The gallery shop has tons of Christmas ornaments and decorations, and they’re all made by Canadian artisans. Many of the cute ornaments you’ll find here are even made locally by hardworking artists, craftsmen and potters. Instead of picking up a pack of cookie-cutter ornaments, you can buy a one-of-a-kind ornament that doubles as a piece of art when Christmas is over. The glass ornaments, in particular, are stunning. It’s a good spot to pick up holiday gifts, too!

Anthropologie

2154-8882 170 Street NW, Edmonton, AB T5T 4J2

They have such cute ornaments for the tree and decorations for the home here, including plenty of adorable knitted winter or Christmas themed tree ornaments. These are the kinds of ornaments that you only buy one or two of because they’re a little pricier than normal ornaments but also because they stand out so much you don’t want to overwhelm your tree or home with too many of them. Buy a Christmas tree topper or one special ornament for each family member and call it a day.
