African Art Sale

Saturday and Sunday Nov. 2nd and 3rd

8:30 AM to 4 PM

Ocean Park Hall - 1577-128 Street, South Surrey

Save your Christmas shopping until you see all our goods!!!

We will be featuring unique paintings, soap stone crafts, hand painted Batik tablecloths, hand crafted bowls and spoons, baskets, beaded ornaments, beaded Christmas ornaments, hand crafted cards, and so much more. Paintings are priced to sell, well under their value in order to support Zimbabwe artists so that they can continue to paint. We have a selection of well known artists who have appeared in the Zimbabwe Art Magazine.

Chutney and Apple Butter with recipes will be available again this year. They make great hostess gifts. Home made cakes and cookies will also be available for purchase.

Join us for a cup of coffee and some delicious pumpkin soup, as well as homemade Chicken Pie and gravy and learn about what we do.

Get your Christmas shopping started early with these unique gift ideas and stocking stuffers, and make a difference in the world by supporting our worthy cause! 100% of the funds raised will go to supporting widows and orphans in Zimbabwe through the Zimbabwe Gecko Society.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Sending Container to Zimbabwe: A container will be leaving Compassionate Warehouse in the near future. If you can help with funds needed to send it on its way, it would be appreciated. Most importantly right now, we need a bit of space. I don't need to collect goods other than school supplies, pens, pencils crayons, etc. for the container, but I have a few things in the wings that have already been collected for the next project: sewing machines and carpentry tools. I need some space about the size of a single garage to store ready for shipment. Can anyone help for a month or two at most?

Contact Sue Janetti at or for more info or to donate.
