I had a wonderful opportunity a couple weeks ago to attend a Blogger Event at Gardner Village sponsored by My Craft Channel. I jumped at the chance to attend because Gardner Village has been one of my favorite places to shop since we moved back to Utah almost 20 years ago. I love all the little specialty shops and how it feels like you’re walking through a sweet little village.
October is my favorite month to visit Gardner Village with December as a close second. My kids love all the fun things that are happening in October. The witch displays scattered throughout the village are so awesome. My kids love finding all of them and getting their pictures taken. Don’t forget to bring your camera. There’s also a witch scavenger hunt, kids 12 and under can participate in. For a complete list of October activities visit their site here.
Now let’s talk shopping. Shopping at Gardner Village is a real treat. There are so many beautiful one-of-a-kind items to pick up. And the window shopping is eye candy at it’s best. I found some beautiful treasures at Aunt Elsie’s that I had to bring home with me. Down to Earth has beautiful pieces of Furniture and Home Decor that you just don’t find every where else. Upon the Shelf, Pine Needles and of course Country Furniture & Gifts are also among my favorites.
I can’t leave Gardner Village before eating a few treats. My kids favorite places are Sweet Afton’s and Naborhood Bakery. But I love to grab a delicious lunch or dinner at Archibald’s then shop till I drop with a friend. It’s a great place to find special and one-of-a-kind gifts for the holidays. Most things are very reasonably priced also. I am seriously loaded down with bags every time I leave there.
We all had fun sporting mustaches and getting photographed by Highlite Photography at the Bloggers Night Out. It was really a blast. I promise you if you decide to visit Gardner Village you will have a wonderful shopping, playing and eating experience.
