the neatest things and make the most perfect latte,” says one out-of-town customer. The shop carries an eclectic selection of giftware from edgy, modern Umbra home decor to a wide variety of sparkling jewellery and whimsical keepsakes. There is something at Pink Petals and The Black Bean for every taste — modern, rustic or antique. Gina carries inspirational books and cards to soothe the soul and Gourmet Village dips, sauces, chutneys, salsas and drink mixes to fill the belly. Gourmet chocolates and cookies will be arriving at the store in time to fill local Christmas stockings. In October 2013, another damsel joined Gina at the shop. Kayla Luky is a talented singer and songwriter whose dazzling personality adds to the charm of this place. The musical endeavours of this damsel and her band, Kayla Luky ‘n’ Boots, can be found on the shop’s shelves in the form of several CDs. And so, the story of this legendary shop filled with romantic roses, glittering gifts and creative coffees continues. Wise women Gina, Ardithe and Kayla would like to thank the people of Grandview and area for helping to make Pink Petals and The Black Bean a success. She would also like to wish everyone “a happily ever after” for 2014!
