It's that time of year where the store is just rocking! Which is always wonderful but equally exhausting. I've been trying to squirrel away time here and there when I can. Two weeks ago I took a day off and went back to Jackson, MS to do some serious thrifting AND I found the loveliest restaurant tucked away in a boutique hotel. Seriously, if you ever should find yourself in Jackson, try to find the Fairview Inn and their in-house restaurant Sophia's. I had the Amberjack with a chipolte-coconut broth and black bean mash potatoes. Next visit I'm tempted to try the Mississippi Hot Brown...it sounded intriguing!
This past weekend I went to the Three Rivers Festival in Covington, LA and was really blown away with the entire show. I found some unique wood turned utensils from the Spoon Mill and then a bread bowl I just love in a bright violet from Clement Clayworks. Here's my pumpkin bread I made yesterday (one of the seven included recipes). It's really good with coffee!
So between the day trips, lots of new things have come in at the shop and online; right now I'm working on a special holiday gift set that will be a freebie for Black Friday and Small Business Saturday that includes these "Heaux Heaux Heaux" pencils...that's Ho Ho Ho in Cajun!
