Whimsical greeting cards, trendy stationery, unique novelties and giftware, and, of course, chicken-themed decor are the fare at this lively Old Strathcona store. Mon - Wed 10 am - 5:30 pm; Thu - Fri 10 am - 9 pm; Sat 10 am - 6 pm; Sun 12 pm - 5 pm.
Some of the cards at Chicken Scratch are created by local artists and are often considered stand-alone works of art. Apart from the cards, there is a selection of gift wrapping paraphernalia, for children, too. If you just cannot go through life without owning a rubber chicken, get one here. Chicken Scratch is renowned for its distinctive shops and restaurants; it is just south of downtown.
