We had the good fortune of connecting with Sydney Edwards and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Sydney, what is the most important factor behind your success?
Success to me, looks like smiles on the faces of the people in this community I’ve built. Success looks like helping others on their spiritual journey in life. Success isn’t about money or fame, its about knowing I’ve made a positive impact in the world and helped others connected and cared for in this lifetime.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
When I was 21, I started this business with a dream to build a community of like minded people. Most of my life, I felt alone and misunderstood. I was always very spiritual and sensitive. I never had a place like this to feel like I belong. I wanted to build a space where others could call home. Where kindred spirits could mingle and grow together. I’m insanely proud of what this sacred space has become and continues to grow into. From our Psychic faires which help local artists build their businesses, the proceeds we raise for charity, our moon circles and other workshops where people can learn…I’m just so grateful for all of it. I’m so happy I can help other small businesses grow and I can give people like myself jobs doing things that bring them joy and help them grow on their path! Our customers, artists, and employees are also our chosen family. Its a magical place and its so full of love.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
When my friends visit I obviously take them to my shops. If we are in Vernon we go to Stairway to heaven to hike which is right next door! Or to Heaven Hill farm which is also on our property. Hopefully we’d have some events going here like our Moon circle or our Psychic Faire I could also take them too. Then we’d journey to Warwick for some local fun in town and lunch at Fannies! Then we’d head over to Waywayanda to swim in the lake. Maybe a boatride on Greenwood Lake and then to visit my Greenwood Lake location!!

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My success is all due to the people who support my business and who are a part of this community. Thank you to everyone who comes out to our events and shares space with me. Thank you to every customer and client who has become a friend along the way.
