New arrivals every day

 Items have been coming in daily at the shop. Its like Christmas around there, opening packages and finding things I forgot I ordered. Why did I wait so long to open this place?!
This weeks arrivals include cheese and yogurt making kits, sourdough starter, kombucha kits, bottles for beverages and herbal tinctures, hydroponic seed kits and wonderful wildcrafted skin care products. 

 Forage is the skin care line. The herbal ingredients are picked in the mountains of Appalachia, using time honored traditions of making soaps and using only the finest ingredients for skin care. The shop smells amazing, with aromas of huckleberry, elderberry, sassafras, fir and lemon balm.  I spray a little of the Elderberry body mist on and my mood lifts instantly. The magic of aromatherapy!

 I'm looking forward to trying out the goat cheese kit and the sourdough starter. The kits are complete with everything you need. What could be more satisfying than making it yourself and having a great appetizer before dinner? Plus it all looks so cool on the shelves.

I also love the look of the amber bottles I ordered. They can be used for bottling beer or kombucha or your favorite ciders. Or just decorating the kitchen, ha!

We have a local beer store across the street that sells great beers and we have been wandering over there on weekends after a long day in the shop to have a cold brew. My new favorite is Wicked Weeds Lunatic, because, well the name fits me most days right now! Cheers xo

Exciting! (Now back to work!!)

The sad thing is that Wicked Weed Brewing just recently sold out to Anheiser Busch. :(

Can you hear me cheering from way out here? I think my chef son might like those kits...hmm remind me at the holidays K?

Tracey Broome said...

Yeah, but I like a good Budweiser, and Wicked Weed is still a great beer..... then there is the Whole Foods/Amazon thing, everyone gets gobbled up it seems :(
Z, I can ship to you, just let me know! The cheese kits are really cool

Continued good luck to you!

Lori, it has been interesting to realize how much I did learn at that job and how well it prepared me to start a retail store, the Universe truly knew where to guide me!

It's so good to see you happy and enjoying your life again. It's also exciting to see what is coming into your store. I see much success in this endeavor.
