I Hang Out With Witches


 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.

The full schedule of Witchy events is below. If you are even considering going, go! My daughter loves the displays, it gets us into the Halloween spirit without being too scary. While you are there, check out the new puzzle by Eric Dowdle. It the perfect replication of all the cute witches at Gardner Village in puzzle form. We just finished the puzzle and it is so darling. All of the little details are perfect! 

Gardner Village is located at 1100 W. 7800 S., West Jordan, UT.

Oh, I love Gardiner Village, especially the big, main store. So many cute things! It's a good thing I don't live in Utah or I would be there ALL the time. My daughter really loves the doll shop -- it really is a fun one, lots cheaper than the American Girl stores.
