Hi Everyone! Whew! This has been the rainiest summer season that I can remember!! We've had an average of 2" a day for the past couple of weeks! I'm giving the alpacas swimming lessons!! No, not really! They do fine, despite the rain! Nice not to have to be watering everything to keep it alive, especially when we've been doing a lot of planting and landscaping. We're still on sabbatical with Friday at the Farm until Friday, September 6, but, of course, that does not mean that we're not available. I'm always ready to do a video call with you, if there's something, especially yarn, as we get ready to kick off Fall knitting projects, that you simply must have!! I've got in gorgeous sari silk ribbon yarn in drop-dead beautiful colors! And my very first direct shipment of goodies, mostly felted products, has arrived from Nepal (talk about a learning curve!!), which I've been able to price at amazing prices. But let me continue below about the Saturday farmers market!
Weather permitting, Jack and I will be setting up our double booth from 7 a.m.- 12 noon, this Saturday, 8/17, at the farmers market, located on Sams Ave., in front of NSB City Hall. We will have our usual array of goodies for you to look over, plus some new arrivals (see above!). We love our repeat customers, who love our products- artisan cheeses from a boutique dairy in Tennessee; certified organic soaps in many delightful scents; amazing shells and shell products from New Zealand; our basics- yarns- alpaca, fun fibers, linen, silk, mohair, cotton; hand-knit finger puppets, alpaca socks, bunnies, and teddy bears from Peru; knitting accessories; hand-knit and hand-woven clothing and home goods; and- the girls said not to forget their wonderful eggs!! See you Saturday, I hope!
