Celebrating her recent induction into CAFA*, Abigail Hitchens of Petals in Thyme (featured in #93 Beach Booster) is blooming with business success. A new location at the corner of Sunnidale and Mosley (across from Macs Milk), an expanding gift-product line & client list plus fine art gallery, has this entrepreneur multi-tasking.
Petals in Thyme is enjoying a boom in event business and a growing customer base far beyond her beach town. Her reputation for creating fresh, floral designs has the phone ringing and social media a buzz.
Abigail is actively looking for 20 new Artists of all disciplines to showcase and represent and for those who feel the intimidation factor of traditional white-box galleries, forget about it. “We live in flip flops and accept sand on our floors” she says of the Wasaga Beach lifestyle. “My gallery is welcoming, accessible and affordable to everyone. Come visit us soon!”
Petals in Thyme is a florist and design gallery offering fair-trade and Canadian grown flowers with a grass-roots based gift gallery showcasing Canadian painters, potters, photographers, glass makers and artisans. Always available for funerals, daily arrangements and bouquets. Book your floral designs in advance for your special day or event. Ask about their *Dog House Prevention Program*
