About Us

About Our Store

Gibsons is an Acadian-style mercantile that will feature products from local farms like BBQ sauce, shallots and pickled veggies, baked goods and mixes, fine soaps, handmade crafts and quilts, and more. The major draw was inspired by my daughter who grew up loving old-fashioned candy shops. We will offer seasonal candy and about 20 other candies paid by the ounce. Each season we will host a special event and have a children’s touch/play space while parents and/or grandparents shop. I can put together custom gift bags or baskets upon request for special occasions, and we will have balloons and party supplies (I can set up themed party packages if I get 2 weeks’ advance notice).

I will also have some glass plates, assorted dishes and glasses, and artwork for sale. More ideas to come!

Who We Are

My name is Chrisann and I am the business owner. The grand opening will be Mid October where I plan to bring you back in time with an old “thyme” theme and sell candy, soaps, olive oil, home goods, and seasonal holiday decor.

Patrick and I are a blended family of six. I attended the University of Pennsylvania and my husband attended the United States Military Academy. I have worked as an event planner and high school teacher, and I am an avid home decorator. Also, I am obsessed with Christmas. I love to cook, travel, and spend time with our four adult children. I am a breast cancer survivor, and a portion of our proceeds will benefit cancer research.

If you have any questions at all, please feel free to reach out to me via email. I would love to hear about your business and how we can help support bringing more local products into our store. We plan to open in mid-October. Thanks so much!
