Every time my husband and I are driving to my parents house, we pass a billboard for Gardner Village. It simply says “Your wife loves this place.” We always have a laugh at that, because it is true. I love Gardner Village. I love the shops especially the candy shop, Sweet Afton’s Candy and the Georgell Doll shop. If you have ever been in my house, it is evident I never out grew dolls, so it is one of my favorite places in the whole village. I also love shopping for clothes, beads and having lunch at Archibald’s. Every year, I stop by Celebrations by Modern Display for our yearly Christmas ornament. We have a very specifically themed Christmas tree and they honestly have the best selection of unique ornaments.
I love everything about Gardner Village, especially Halloween time. It seem like these days Halloween has turned into something gross and disgusting, something not for my 4-year-old to enjoy. I love that Gardner Village keeps it fun, family-friendly and honestly pretty funny. The witch displays are the perfect way to celebrate Halloween and I love the witches that come to all of their events. They are so hilarious and fun that the events always sell out.
This year I was able to attend a sampling of Witchfest hosted by Gardner Village and My Craft Channel. It was a fabulous evening with great friends and fun witches. I can’t wait to take my family back up to see the witches this year. You can see the full awesome video from the night below.
