I hope the holidays have found you all safe and happy.

I am in the car so I have to keep this short as I NEVER text/talk while driving so I had to pull over.

Anyway, come in and look around and buy, buy, buy.

As always, eat well and see you soon,


Market Open!

Hey all,

Hope everyone’s week went well. My husband went to GA on Monday and had a Joyous return yesterday. We always miss him terribly when he takes these trips so the kids and I were thrilled to see him come walking through the door yesterday afternoon.

I had already discussed this with Marantha and have decided to keep the market Closed next week. My son turns 15 on the Tuesday after Christmas so I will be spending the day with him and the family.

As far as this week….. I was told of a new way to showcase products which as you know I have not been doing. To be honest I have been struggling with this part of the business as I am not confident about writing on other peoples products.

Since this is the last market before Christmas and we will be taking the following week off I thought this would be a good time to try this out………

If done correctly you will see the entire product lost on this massage. I thought it sounded like a quick and easy way to browse and choose items for Christmas and/or the next couple weeks.

Anyway, as always Be Safe. Have a wonderful Holiday and always Eat Well.


Market Will Be Open Today at 4

Hello all,

I hope Turkey Day found you all well. For those wondering, it was confirmed Parvo and I am thrilled to report that Panda recovered 100%.

Again, heaven knows I don’t wish this on anyone but should you find yourself in the same boat and don’t agree with pumping an already seriously I’ll dog with chemicals, my friend stumbled accross a solution completely herbal that worked like a charm. True, she lost 3 dogs but we believe there were other issues involved.
1 past before she rerealized what was happening and the other 2 she wormed first. The others who ONLY got the solution All recovered.

Anyway, back to business…..

Come in, look around and buy, buy, buy. We have another holiday right around the corner so stock up now. It looks like the cold weather has finally found us and it will be getting chilly next week….. I don’t know about you but hot chocolate sounds wonderful.

Have a safe and happy weekend.


Market Closed This Week.

Hello all,

Sorry this is late I just realized it is Saturday.

My husband and I decided to stay up all night Wednesday and cook so we could just eat, sleep and play family games on Thursday.

I hope everyone had a safe and happy Turkey Day.

Unfortunately, I had a fear confirmed…….

I have a puppy with Parvo. So far my other 3 dogs appear symptom free but Panda was acting “off” about 3 days before it hit and by the time it was confirmed by a friend (I brought it into my house when she called me over to check out one of her puppies that has been sick since it was born 6 months earlier)Taco was having seizures and on Tuesday (I went over on Monday) and by Thursday she had lost 3 dogs including Taco.

Anyway, by the time it was confirmed on Turkey Day Panda was in very bad shape. So lack of sleep then trying to save my puppies life Friday rolled around and I never even thought about the market.

I couldn’t open it anyway. I seriously doubt any of you that may have ordered would want me go touch your products knowing I am completely submersed in the Parvo Virus.

To try and protect my other dogs I have quarantined myself and Panda in the bedroom and the dogs in the front of the house.

I couldn’t leave if I wanted too.

I would like to give some valuable info though just for future reference. I have a completely herbal remedy that appears to be slowly but surely pulling Panda back from the brink of death. My friend has used it and she brought 4 of her effected dogs back. Hers appeared to recover by the following day. Panda has not recovered as quickly but he is definitely showing signs of improvement. If all goes well and he makes a full recovery I would be.more then happy to share my solution with anyone that prefers natural healing over Meds.

Thank You for understanding,


Market Open!!!!!

Hello all,

I hope you all have had a good week so far. I still can’t believe there is snow expected this weekend. Last I heard for the mountains it said 3-8 inches…… 8 inches!

This is a perfect time to order some hot chocolate and seasonal flavored coffee.

Don’t know about you but I love this time of year where it is cool out and I can sit and relax with a big steaming cup of tea and enjoy the quiet coolness in the morning.

I’m an Erie PA girl….. It’s what we do.

Anyway, happy shopping.



Market Opens Today at 4pm!

No Market This Week

Hello everyone,

I am sorry but I will not be able to open the market this week. I injured myself, tore the thigh muscle in my right leg, and am on bed rest.

I dont know if I will be able to drive by Tuesday so it is best if I dont open this week.

Thank you for understanding,
