Gardner Village Series: Storybook Nook


Gardner Village is one of my favorite places to visit with a group of family or friends.  Because we got to visit with the owner of the village and the shop owners the other night, we'll be doing a Gardner Village Series spotlight of most of the stores so that you can see what's there and why we fell in love with the place all over again.  We hope you enjoy it!

Most recently, I discovered a store I had never visited before!  It's called the Storybook Nook!  From the picture above, doesn't it look like you could spend hours in there? It's so cute and quaint.

This store has not only books but also games and toys for adults and children alike.  The owner, Allison Smith selects the items herself. I love that passion!



This store is definitely worth exploring! They have Apples to Apples (one of my favorite games), Bananagrams, Word on the Street, Five Crowns, Curses and much, much more!  I'm going to have to find my way back there to check out their wood puzzles and blocks for my toddler!

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."


The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!

GIVEAWAY: ERGObaby Carrier! -CLOSED-

Winner

I have carried my little boy in a baby carrier since he was born. I love the convenience of strapping him in and not worrying about the hassle of a bulky stroller. It's also a comfort to hold my little guy close and safe. When I had the chance to review the ERGObaby carrier, I was thrilled to try something that could extend my baby wearing days.


My first test was a true one...Costco. I admit that I didn't really look at the directions when I put the carrier on in the parking lot. But I didn't need to! After one look at a picture in the user manual, I strapped my 20 pound boy in, placed my little girl in the shopping cart, and started on my way through the aisles of Costco. I immediately noticed that the carrier more evenly distributed my son's weight than my normal carrier and held my boy high so my legs weren't bumping into his. This made it significantly easier to tote him around the store. Indeed my normal trips to Costco are exhausting. But after…
