Brit and Jenny Lee buy a toy store!
We never imagined we'd be toy store owners, and yet here we are.
But first, introductions. We're Brit Boyd and Jenny Lee Silver, and Enchanted Toys & Games is our new endeavour. A couple of tabletop gamers, nerds, and joy enthusiasts, we're transplants from the east (Ontario) to this lovely corner of British Columbia known as the Sunshine Coast.
A conversation over coffee at Beachcomber Coffee became a wacky idea and rapidly turned into a plan. A couple of short months later and we're painting murals, ordering new stock, and getting excited about opening the store.
Jenny Lee has been making internet for years, helping non-profits and organizations build an online presence in an effort to make the world a better place for us all. Since moving to Gibsons in 2015, she's dreamed of having an impact locally - searching for a way to share happiness in her own community. A traditional toy store may seem like a odd place to do it, but Jenny is excited to share her plans to create an accessible, friendly community space in Gibsons for games, art, and play.
Brit has always loved toys and the magic of childhood and has a passion to create spaces for creative expression and play. She has worked at Giggle n' Bloom (Enchanted's former name) since 2013, and has enjoyed bringing the joy of play to many families on the coast. Having worked as a special needs one to one support worker, a birth doula, and a graphic artist Brit loves to support families in her town any way she can. She is so excited to be able to create a unique space for the families of her community where they can support each other, grow and most of all, play!
Together we hope to build a magical corner in our great community at Enchanted Toys & Games. We look forward to seeing you in the store soon!
