Qualicum Trading Post Qualicum Beach Reviews
A collection of authentic aboriginal art. Jun 20, 2008
This is a small store with a collection of old wagon wheels out front. It doesn't look like much from the road but inside, they have a small but excellent representation of works from regional First Nations artists.
There is no way around the fact that quality, traditional native art is being produced by fewer and fewer people who are getting older. As a result pices are increasing and good work getting scarcer, This shop has a good offering by local artist Patrick Amos and others from as far north as Alert Bay. If you're a collector stop in and be prepared to bargain.
If you just want to have a look and pick up some information, the proprietors are great conversationalists. Of course, they also sell antiques, handmade candles and jewellery. Stop in, you'll enjoy the experience and, more than likely, you'll find something you can't live without.
