Just an update on the sale: rain is forecast for Monday. When and how long - we don't know. Regardless of the rain, we will offer everything in the yard and back porch as often as we can - when the rain slacks. As they say...........neither rain, snow, or sleet or.....................whatever - will keep us from offering these great items for our customers! See you Monday - we have Christmas cookies and cider for our customers.
