Sixth Annual Candy Cane Lane

Children looking to get a jump start on their holiday shopping can visit Candy Cane Lane: The Children’s Christmas Shop on the Sunday of Thanksgiving weekend - Sunday, November 26 at Edgebrook Lutheran Church, 5252 W. Devon, from 2:00 pm - 4:00 p.m.

This shop is intended to give children ages 3 to 10 ears a chance to get a head start on their holiday shopping and shop for up to 5 people in their lives. With the help of a specially trained "elf" children create a gift list, formulate a budget and shop with their elf who guides them through the store.

There will be a variety of gifts available for sale at The Children’s Christmas Shop ranging from $1 to $10. Parents give money in advance for their children to pay by cash upon “check out” from The Children’s Christmas Shop. Children are encouraged to have a shopping list and budget in mind, but their personal shoppers (Elves) can also assist them with their list and budget. No grown-ups allowed so that kids get to keep a real holiday secret! There are wonderful gifts to choose from (most purchased from the Merchandise Mart). The Children will end their shopping experience by having their gifts wrapped to keep it a surprise until Christmas.

Children and their parents/caregivers will enter Candy Cane Lane through the church's main doors and be greeted and brought to their personal Elf. The personal Elf will then assist children in their shopping in the “Children’s Christmas Shop”

Just seeing the children's faces as they purchase their gifts for their families are such a joy...Hope to see you there!
