Green Petal Holiday Kick-Off

The Green Petal celebrated it’s Holiday Kick-Off with treats and a vintage goods pop-up market on Sunday November, 17. Shoppers browsed seasonal decorations and gifts while heavy rain poured in the Elk Valley.

Carmen Dunnet, store owner, opened The Green Petal 10 years ago. She’s had a busy shoulder season and is looking forward to Christmas, her busiest two weeks of the year.

“Business definitely goes up,” she said. “All the Christmas flowers, because we do flowers as well…centerpieces and wreaths.”

“Today is our holiday open house,” Dunnet said. “The first look at all of our holiday items…a few sales going on and some goodies. We have Allie Rogers and New Moons Goods here with their pop up shop with pre-loved and vintage items. She is one of my floral designers, and has her goods displayed beautifully.”

Dunnet and a helper worked into the night to make the Holiday Kick-Off happen.

“And we were back at it this morning,” she explained. “Lots and lots of time. I love creating beautiful vignettes that people can shop and look at. I really appreciate everyone’s support. It’s awesome.”
