Wishing everyone a Happy Halloween and be careful out there on trick or treat night! We have had some cute little trick or treaters at the Post. Free candy and treats all month long!

Something you all need to see is Sheri's knit hats. For men, women and children. Matching scarves are available. She takes special orders. Very reasonable and very warm! She is a true artist at this and she even makes doggie hats. She also makes the fingerless mittens and boy, do I use those when weather gets colder here at the barn. She recently completed an order for a gentleman who loves to hunt. It was a brown camouflage. I ordered a green camouflage for J.D., my hubby. So, all you hunters order yours today. Call me at number above or better yet, c'mon in when we are open: Thursdays thru Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Our fantastic lamp creator, Jai Sheronda, begins his art show at the Art Center in Woodbury at this time. He is famous for his unique one-of-a-kind gourd lamps. I have several in my home and love them. He grows the gourds at the Short Mountain Trading Post, harvests them, cleans them, inserts crystals in the shade and constructs his lamp bases from unique lamps he discovers all over the place. He says they are "gourd-geous"!
We also are welcoming our new jewelry artist, Lisa Wisdom. What a talented lady! Such intricate work and so colorful! You must see! Everything is very reasonably priced and very different from the norm.
We also have welcomed some absolutely gorgeous quilts by Elizabeth Cooper. They range from $40 to $200 and sizes from crib to king. Beautiful!
Well, Festus and Clara are on vacation this week. They went to Disney World in Orlando Florida. Clara said she is going to leave him on the Dumbo ride and pick him up after she is finished enjoying the park by herself! You go, girl!
Well, I am going to run for now. Gotta start designing the barn for Christmas. Décor goes up November 1st. You folks take care and take each day as an adventure not a chore. Come see me soon at the Trading Post.
