Fall open house completed……

We would like to start out by thanking everyone who attended. It was perfect weather for our Fall Open House. Sorry to say, we were so busy I wasn’t able to take any photos except a couple, or do any video. The store was packed……

We would like to thank the members of the Blue Ridge Chapel Baptist Church, who started making the apple butter at 6:00 am Saturday morning. Thank you for the jar you gave us, its excellent, and I love apple butter. We hope you had a huge success, and again Thank You for your generous help in making our Fall Open House so special.

We would also like to thank Charles and Margaret from Treasure Potts across the street, for being so generous with the parking, as seen in the photo, both parking lots were packed all day….

We would also like to give a very special Thank You to Jim and Arlene Goulet. They traveled all the way from Lead Hill Ark. to autograph, and explain how they videoed the American Road Blue Ridge Parkway DVD, which has been a huge success in our store. Its one DVD you will want to have in your collection. They are in the works for their next video that I am sure will be just as good as the present DVD, if not better…… We will be adding the links for their web and blog sites in the near future, so everyone can learn what’s happening with American Road…….

And last, but not least, we want to thank Shari at Homespun and Primitives, for the beautiful fall display she crafted, to be given away for our drawing. It was absolutely gorgeous. And the winner was Santana Bell from Rural Retreat Va., we know you will be so happy with this gift, Congrats.

If we have forgotten and left anyone out, we are sorry, this last weekend has been a big blur, and now its time to start getting ready for our big Christmas Open House, Nov. 14th and 15th. If you thought the Fall Open House was spectacular, you haven’t seen anything yet….

We will keep you updated on everything going on for that one….. once I get some rest……
