Running out of ideas? Here are some suggestions for that heritage-lover on your shopping list:

Memberships

Show them you care by purchasing an annual membership from Heritage Winnipeg! We have options for every age group starting as low as $15 - you can even purchase more than one year in advance if you want. Heritage Winnipeg members are our front-line supporters and receive newsletters about current happenings and invitations to upcoming heritage events. 
And, for the holidays only, gifted memberships will also receive a Heritage Winnipeg agenda for 2015, to remind them of your gift year-round. 

Click here to purchase a membership with Heritage Winnipeg 
(don't forget to fill out the membership form and mail or email it to us so we have all of the information we need!) 

P.S. We also offer memberships for every need! Seniors, students, family/organization, and three levels of corporate support are all available! 

One-Time Donation

As a non-profit organization, Heritage Winnipeg relies heavily on funding from outside sources, including donations from the community. A one-time donation in the name of a loved one shows your support for the work we do - such as Doors Open Winnipeg, the Annual Preservation Awards, and our advocacy work - without having to worry about renewing a membership again next year. In addition, all donations will be issued a tax-deductible receipt.

Wrap-able Gifts

All of the following suggested items can be purchased in our online store here. All purchases must be picked up from the Heritage Winnipeg office at #509-63 Albert Street, or can be shipped at the purchaser's expense. If an item is to be shipped before Christmas, it must be ordered no later than December 15, 2014.

Books




As part of our mission to educate the community, Heritage Winnipeg has been a part of numerous publishing projects. The latest, Armstrong's Point: A History was published as a joint effort with author Randy Rostecki, and provides unique insight into this historic community.

Save $10 when you buy through the Heritage Winnipeg online store - only $29.95! 


Artwork



Heritage Winnipeg has collaborated on numerous projects with artists from the community, most recently with Robert Sweeney, who is the creative mind behind our collection of prints for sale. The selection can be found here on our Flickr or by clicking through the album above - just be sure to include the order number (found in the image description in this format: "HW0046") when you purchase!

All coloured sketches are printed on card stock or coated paper and include an original monogram.  Price varies by size - the options are listed in the drop-down menu on the website but include cards as well as 8 1/2" by 11" or 11" by 17" prints. Custom frames will be needed for the 11" x 17" size prints. Postage is included in the price, which is subject to applicable sales taxes (13%).

Map

 
Showing Winnipeg as it looked in 1884, this map can be purchased as a coloured print. Cartographer W. Fonseca - framing available prior to purchase, at the purchaser's expense.

Clothing 

 
Something a little different, these t-shirts are part of a fundraising effort to support the rehabilitation of Streetcar 356 (read the blog post about this project here). Unfortunately, only XL and XXL sizes are currently available in stock.
