WHOOPEE!!!! The Short Mountain Trading Post was up and swinging this past week end!! What a show stoppin' crowd! Thanks to everyone who came to see us from just about everywhere. We not only had twice as many vendors who signed up to sell their wares but we also had a crowd of all crowds show up to buy, trade and enjoy delicious country food!!
Our parking lot brimmed over with cars, trucks, motorcycles ... you name it!! So, thank all of you very much for such a special fun day for everyone!!
JD sold a record number of hotdogs on the grill. BBQ stand was delicious as always. Snow cones were a welcomed treat. Fresh lemonade super good. Peach cobbler, fresh pies, breads, jams, fresh produce also tickled the pallets! Lots of furniture, glassware, farm décor, fishing equipment, toys, dolls, handcrafted items and silly signs were our big sellers!! Remember, the Trading Post not only hosts these events every other month, but we are open each week Thursday thru Saturday from 10 to 5 each day. So, those interesting good deals just keep on coming!
We made so many new friends this week end and are anxious to meet so many more throughout the week. C'mon and enjoy yourselves. We do BUY,SELL or TRADE --- so keep that in mind. Savannah and JD are always there to meet and greet and deal!!

I will be on Channel DTC announcing all of these events within the next couple weeks to give further information on all activities at the Post. Please watch!! The Holidays are so special to all of us at the Short Mountain Trading Post.
ake sure you make it to these events. It will put a smile on your face and give you a happy heart!! We are hoping that the Cannon County Historical Society will be joining us out here. We have offered them room to set up their museum and have a safe place for it where all can view the importance of our community with a valued history displaying artifacts and stories of how our community was created, protected and preserved for all these years. It is our pleasure to shelter such a wonderful cause and have visitors enjoy what Cannon County is all about and special in so many ways that we need to all appreciate.
On that note, I will sign off for now and look forward to your visits at the Trading Post!! Please remember to smile, take care of your family and friends and Hug each other for me.
