There’s a new business owner in town, one with an entrepreneurial spirit that matches her zeal for commerce. Dazzling Gifts Galore unique gifts, jewelry, and clothing owner Doreen Roseberry opened up shop over the May long weekend and hasn’t looked back since.

“I fell in love with this place,” she said of the inspiration to open up a unique shop that is home to a little bit of everything.

Ms. Roseberry was charmed by the stunning mountains native to the Columbia Valley and decided to relocate from Vernon, B.C. where she managed a strata apartment complex for over seven years. She also has experience with consignment clothing after owning a successful vintage store in Prince George.

For Ms. Roseberry, customer service and interacting with the public is everything in business, and it’s a task she enjoys.

“The people here are amazing — I come from small towns and this one is special. People visit from all over the world and I spend half the day laughing with them,” she said.

The 79 year-old business woman rolled up her sleeves and got to work handpicking the diverse and eclectic items found in her charming shop located in downtown Invermere.

The store features everything from hemp body lotions to Himalayan salts as well as a wide array of men’s, women’s, children’s and even pet clothing and accessories.

The walls are adorned with displays of handcrafted goods including local artwork, jewelry, novelty items and even a tomahawk. The store also features Vape and E-juices, products designed to help smokers kick the habit.

Dazzling Gifts Galore is also the new location of Greyhound. Ms. Roseberry recently took the service over from the Laundromat. They deal with freight as well as passengers that can buy tickets to connect to Greyhound bus services in Cranbrook and Golden through Sun City Coachlines.

Ms. Roseberry admits her work is a labour of love and she told the Pioneer that she’s looking forward to meeting more of the town.
