The Village Emporium

The Village Emporium gift shop is located at the corner of Queen & Pleasant Streets in the seaside village of Chester, Nova Scotia. Our gift shop proudly houses a wide variety of locally handcrafted products and a selection of items from away. With contributions (and very reasonable prices!) from over 20 vendors, there is something for everyone whether you are looking for a gift or a treat for yourself!

Our selection of offerings includes everything from souvenirs and jewellery, baby goods and giftware, books and greeting cards, purses and wallets, soaps and much more. We even have a section of ladies’ (only) clothing on consignment!  Our unique model means each of our vendors is their own small business within the shop. We are all about variety and great prices!
