Seasons of Mackinaw, inspired by the splendor of the changing seasons of Northern Michigan, opened on May 22, 2015.

After spending 20 years in the entertainment industry and exploring the world, home has always been in Michigan. Creating a shop that celebrates artisan made products and creates an atmosphere of tranquility has felt like a dream come true. My soul is at peace here in Mackinaw and after making memories each Summer here with family, I now call Mackinaw City home. I am blessed to be able to share Seasons of Mackinaw with all of you, perhaps you will find a treasure here and take your Mackinaw memory home. Thank You and Have Safe Travels. Scott Gasparich, Proprietor

Owner's Background

About Us – Scott Gasparich has always felt rooted and connected to his home state of Michigan even while living away for nearly 20 years.

He grew up in Clio, Michigan and was heavily involved in community theatre.   He has fond memories of decorating his family yard for Halloween and celebrating fall, his favorite season.  He worked for several years in display and in the sales room for Bronner’s Christmas Wonderland in Frankenmuth, Michigan, and learned a great deal from Mr. Christmas himself, Wally Bronner.  He attended the University of Michigan studying music and theatre and graduated with a BA in Theatre.

His career in theatre took him around the country and the world working in stage management and production.  From stage managing opera in California to recruiting acrobats in China, Scott has always enjoyed creative challenges.  He spent the last 7 years as Vice President of Entertainment for Busch Gardens in Williamsburg Virginia, creating and producing musicals and special events, most notably their award winning Christmas Town.

Now, Scott has returned home to Michigan to be closer to family and friends and to fulfill a dream of opening a unique artisan based shop in Mackinaw City.
