Glenda’s Christmas Cottage

Visit Glenda’s Christmas Cottage, a special and unique place filled with Christmas wonder. Each year my husband and I go and buy a bell or some trinket to commemorate our anniversary. There is always something fun going on. It’s like stepping into a little mini Santa Workshop. Open for 27 years here in the Valley and always part of passport to Christmas here in Abbotsford. You don’t want to miss it.

Every year I can’t wait for the holidays because it means Potter’s Nursery is transformed into Christmas Land. Bows, Ribbons, Wrapping Paper, Ornaments, Lights. Anything and everything that’s Christmas is in this store. It’s like a giant Santa Village filled with tons of goodies, and if you’ve never visited before make sure you set a budget because trust me, you’ll walk out spending way more than you planned.
