I've never purchased anything there besides food at Archibalds restaurant--which with ok but not outstanding in any way. Just go there to walk around with friends and family for the enjoyable atmosphere. It's a fun place, almost touristy and Disney-esque.

Gardner Villiage is fun for the whole family, attractions include shopping, dining, pony rides and seasonal events. There are lots of little boutique shops, a restaurant and bakery. I enjoyed the hot turkey sandwich in Archibald's restaurant today.

Took my mom and 7 year old daughter here to go Christmas shopping a week before Christmas. It was all of our first time and we loved the shops, atmosphere, and had a very nice lunch at the bakery. My daughter loved the pony rides and rode twice. The elf hunt provided a lot of fun for all of us. We were told that Halloween is actually their busiest and most festive time of year. We can't wait to go back.

This is a pictureseque and fun shopping village. It is quaint and not to overwhelming so you can relax, shop and eat a good meal. The shops carry unique and interesting gifts and goods from lace to candy to Christmas to books and toys. I take my out of town visitors there.

Lots of small specialty shops, eateries, gardens to lounge etc. A nice day visit. I especially like the farmers market during the summer months.
