The Topiary Shaping The Tree
When The Topiary opened Lisa wished to make the store into something great, something that reflect her shining personality and spiritual growth. A place that feels safe to explore ones self, spiritually, emotional and mentally without any judgment.
Over many years The Topiary has grown. Its branches have become longer, its roots more sturdy and its leaves full of colour, light and knowledge. We have spent time listening to our customers and it has taken us to new places. On your suggestions we have increases our crystal selection by more than ten times. We have built a new crystal table, that ended up even bigger than the original, to expand our tumbled stones. We have also brought in many different forms of large crystals and found as many different specialty crystals as we can. We have drastically increased our selection of singing bowls, smudge, books, tarot and oracle and so much more.
The Topiary owner and staff throughout the years have all been on their own spiritual journey which I believe is why we are so great at helping our customer find the healing tools they need and sometimes even helping them find a new spiritual path. Everyone involved in the store has had a unique specialty, from crystal knowledge to reiki certified. Each staff member in The Topiary’s history has shared their knowledge with as many who want to hear it. Today our team is well educated in all of our products, while always learning and practicing more.
The Topiary may be a store but priority one is helping our customers with the questions they have. We always encourage anyone to reach out with any questions they may have on the items we carry or anything that may help them on their spiritual path. The Topiary is always encouraging any feedback you may have as well. For over the years we have grown because of you.

Victoria : Social Media & Website Design
I have been with the store since 2016, which is also when my spiritual journey began. Coming into the store I was new to crystals, herbs and the entire metaphysical world. I had actually just come for a science program from the University of Laurentian and had a totally different opinion on what The Topiary carries.
This opinion changed quickly. What really opened my eyes in the store was the Crystal Singing Bowls. Their magical sound and vibrations opened up a large spiritual awakening. I found the bowls really allowed me to open up and feel the vibrations and energy that everything around us gives off. I now run Crystal Bowl Mediations, guided meditation, and many workshops including chakra, crystals and so much more. I now use smudge, crystals and vibrations for healing everyday.
Since I started in 2016 I have been a growing part of The Topiary’s social media. When I left Huntsville in September 2019 I couldn’t leave the store. I have fully taken over the social media and website design. I also do a lot of the stores informational cards, which keeps me learning more about all our wonderful products. If you have any questions I always love sharing the knowledge that I have spent so many years learning.
