Just A Taste

The weather was a bit frightful, but the crowds were surprisingly good and there was plenty to keep you distracted. Don your wool sweaters and galoshes and come on out!

Bring Out Your Wool!

Good new, bad news.  Bad news is there is some rain in the forecast for this weekend (as of Wednesday afternoon).  No one really likes rain, although we sure have needed some.  The good news is the temps will be in wool wearing range.  Looking forward to seeing all sorts of wool sweaters, shawls, hats and scarves this weekend!
