December Shopping

The holidays are fast approaching. Whoooosh! Thanksgiving in a couple of days and then Christmas and then New Years Eve and then 2009. Time goes by faster and faster as I get older. I have to remember to just STOP and ENJOY the present, the now, the gift that is today. AAAhhhhhhhh.....

With that, we've added another market to our list this year. We're finishing the season with the 25th Annual "Knight Before Christmas" Craft Sale held at Richwoods High School in Peoria. This promises to be spectacular. Many wonderful vendors (our first year), everything homemade in Illinois - a great time for holiday shopping. Come by sleigh or by car and spend the day with us! Details are as follows:

Saturday, December 6, 2008
