From the moment you enter Bloom, the unique fragrances and whimsical designs create the illusion of being in a funky, trendy garden blossoming with unusual and one-of-a-kind finds. Walking into this precious store is a true shopping “scent-sation.” With a potpourri of items from quirky cards to sexy trinkets, owner Mimi Sullivan-Sparks also features local artists and clothing designers you won’t see anywhere else around these parts.

Even before the store’s opening in February 2004, Mimi had her concept blooming in the back of her mind. Having worked as a children’s clothing designer, she says she gets her inspirations from nature and has collected some beautiful organic clothing, body care supplies and eclectic accessories that fit her charming, eclectic cottage theme.

Bloom surrounds you in texture, color, and fragrance. This is a gem of a store that will make you smile.

With the emphasis on craft, arts and fashion, Bloom is the perfect place to find that interesting piece to revive your wardrobe or home…basically it’s Disneyland for the shop-a-holic.
