Default Calgary Shopping help!!

So after my post yesterday going on about how easy it is to find everything in Canada my dear Wife manages to throw a spanner in the works by declaring she wants a snow globe for Xmas. Any ideas on where to get one of these things would be much appreciated!!

I'm not in Calgary, but Chapters had some beautiful ones, large and very stylish. Good luck.

Isn't a wrench an old English term for a horrible woman............bit heavy to throw around.....

Yeah but she can't shake the window and turn it upside down, although i suppose I could tell her I was advised to turn her up side down, shake her a bit and she can feel like a snow globe. I'm pretty sure I'd be thrown off the balcony though........

Thank you, Chapters did the job on McLoud Trail as Chinook had sold out of the nicer ones.

Eddie Bauer has one to choose from, you can try Chinook, Southcentre or Market Mall.

http://www.eddiebauer.com/catalog/pr...mPathInfo=T307

Should be 40% off this weekend, prices in store are different to those online. Call the stores before you leave home to see if they have any left, I think we still have one in Red Deer if you get that desperate and we can do a ship out

Failing that have you tried Winners/Homesense?
