Gone Scrappin' In Bloom (GSIB) is located in a 1939 heritage general store in the Parkland Region! GSIB offers fresh flowers, scrapbooking supplies, gifts, handmade items, local wares and specialty cafe. GSIB owner Kelly Hunter, loves the holidays and goes all out with style, decor and events during Halloween & Christmas! 
The annual GSIB Spooktacular Event takes place from October 23-30th, starting with a Home Routes House Concert and includes Halloween kids costume portraits, Ladies Shopping Night and homemade fall harvest lunch specials featuring local foods, delicious baked treats and the favorite pumpkin stew inside a pumpkin. This fall, take a journey to GSIB to warm up with a hot latte or caramel apple cider, shop for Halloween decor and unique finds. 
Then comes the big "Holiday Flip" Kelly says. "This antique brick building gets completely transformed with Christmas magic! The store goes through a glitter & tree explosion overhaul and with big thanks to many local volunteers, they help get the store looking its best, just in time!" Their annual GSIB Holiday Open House is November 19th - 21st. The store is FILLED with Christmas trees - too many to count - home decor, handmade & local wares, ornaments, gifts, antiques and lights shimmering everywhere. It is truly an experience to walk into this old country store all decorated and filled with wondrous things! "It is like what I would imagine a toy shop at Christmas to be like from years gone by, but with more goodies for adults!" says Kelly "Plus, you may just time it right when Santa Claus is in the shop, sitting in his favorite rocking chair, ready to hear what you would like for Christmas!" Open house weekend features another Home Routes Concert, Santa & Me Photos, Hot Chocolate Bar and more. If you can't make it during their holiday open house, there is plenty of events happening throughout the season, such as Baking Cookies with Mrs. Claus, dinner and creative nights or just stop by anytime to explore and shop! Just a few of the items you will discover are Children's books, stocking stuffers, gourmet food items, holiday fresh flower arrangements and winter greens.
Explore GSIB this holiday season! Gather with friends, browse the shop, go crafting on Wednesday nights or just sit at one of the cafe tables sipping locally roasted java! A cozy and inspiring atmosphere to gather, shop, eat, dance and create!
