We are actually done with shopping. Well, for that matter, we finished our Christmasing with each other today and it has been such a wonderful day together. We got to sleep in (it was so heavenly, we’ve been running constantly lately), got our family gifts shipped (for the new year :-)), and then delivered honey to a customer and got to visit with him, view his property for a potential bee home and even got some persimmons out of the visit (I love persimmons). Then we hopped over to Marion and checked out Ta’s Coffee so I could poke around the shop. I love little shops like this, especially when they are in old houses. It’s lovely! Above is the awesome space Tara made for our honey and candle products. That’s a lot of real estate and it was so wonderful to see it. Thanks, Tara! Below is a shot of the outside of the shop. Do visit and see what you think. The little house next to it also contains some treasures inside. Ta’s is located on the other side of the tracks, directly across from Penshorn’s in Marion.
After Marion, we swung by Gift & Gourmet so I could snap a shot of where our honey and candle packages are displayed. Mary put the packages together and I had not had a chance to see them yet. Check it out – front and center in front of the check out counter. That’s a sweet spot and we appreciate the exposure. Thanks, Mary! It is so nice to know our products are now in such wonderful shops and with really nice people. I hope their customers enjoy the honey and candles. After that visit, we did another round of gifts (yay, Mark picked up my last gift from G&G while we were there, lol) and then…we took a nap! It was so nice to get some rest. I should hit next week fully recharged. That’s for sure. We hope you all have a wonderful Christmas Eve. In our Central time zone, there’s approximately 50 minutes until midnight rolls around and the big day is here. 🙂 Even though we’re “done” with our celebration here at the ranch, we still have family day in Austin tomorrow so I’m really looking forward to more fun and more Christmas. Goodnight and sleep well.
