Since the first of November, a charming display of gingerbread houses resembling various stores in downtown Eastsound has been on display at Islanders Bank.

Created by Susie Frank, each one is unique and replicates in exquisite detail The Outlook Inn, Allium Restaurant, the Lower Tavern and Wildflour Bakery – just to name a few. It took, Frank, owner of Edible Artistry, the entire month of October to make them.

The pieces will be auctioned off on Dec. 14 with proceeds going to the Orcas Island Food Bank. Visit Islanders Bank before Dec. 14 and choose the one you fancy most. Then enter your name and bid price in the book on the table where the gingerbread houses sit. You will not need to be there to win; however, f you really want to be sure you get the one you want, it would behoove you to be at Islanders Bank just before the auction closes to be sure your bid wins.
