On Saturday 3rd of December, Narvik Museum’s annual Christmas market was held! The market received over 520 visitors during the event, and it was a cozy day at the museum.
A small gingerbread village was made with two trains, with contributions from, among others, Ankenes Bo- og Servicesenter. Narvik Husflidslag made a café with yummy cakes, waffles and delicious coffee sponsored by one of the sales exhibitors; Senja Roasters.
There were fifteen sales exhibitors with a wide variety of goods, ranging from knitwear and crocheted products, to jewelry, paintings, coffee from Senja Roasters, jellies, spice oils, spice salt and biscuits etc. from By Smith-Hald from Borkenes, several types of lefse and many other nice things that customers could buy.
The choir Sangvirkelaget stopped by and sang Christmas songs at the market!
Santa also stopped by to hand out gifts to both young and old!
Narvik Museum would like to thank all the exhibitors, Narvik Husflidslag, and Sangvirkelaget, as well as the contributors to the gingerbread village for their contribution to a great Christmas market this year. And last but not least; a big thank you to everyone who stopped by the cozy Christmas market in Narvik!
