The Showcase Giftshop  |  HOURS OF OPERATION


Visit our elegant gift shop located in the Confederation Centre theatre lobby. The Showcase features quality handcrafted items, jewelry, pottery, women’s fashion, and accessories as well as memorabilia from the famous Anne of Green Gables -The Musical™ and more!

HISTORY:
The Showcase opened in 1965, the year after the Centre opened, and has enjoyed three locations and a variety of expansions over the years. We are part of Confederation Centre of the Arts, a not-for-profit, charitable organization, with volunteers assisting the gift shop staff. All profits from The Showcase go back to the Centre to support arts programming.

MEMORABILIA:
Enjoy the memories long after you return home. Drop in for Charlottetown Festival memorabilia, including Anne™ dolls, books, and more – you can take home a piece of the magic!

ARTISANS:
We carry original paintings by Sandi Komst, jewellery from Art Jewel Design and Constantine Designs, and fused glass by Marcela Rosemberg and Inferno.

WE SUPPORT LOCAL:
Locally made Prince Edward Island items are our first priority, followed by Atlantic Canadian made items and distinctive products from across the country. 

Catherine (Cat) Arsenault – Potter / Owner of Down Home Pottery

Potter by chance or design or fate? I love the medium of CLAY!

I found my passion about 20+ years ago, when I first put my hands on a lump of wet clay and tried to center it on a pottery wheel to make a “POT”.

I love seeing the look on someone’s face when they pick up a mug and “it fits”, there is great satisfaction in seeing people love the colours and feel of a hand crafted vessel.

I enjoy producing beautiful, functional pieces of pottery, but every now and then, I like to experiment with playful sculptural pieces!

I am an active member of the Prince Edward Island Potter’s Studio and the Prince Edward Island Crafts Council.

I hope you enjoy what you see and find a piece that “fits” you!
