Cheers, Mate!

As the Kansas liquor laws do not allow grocery stores to sell wine, we do sell wine accessories! We have corkscrews, bottle stoppers, guides to increase your knowledge and games to play while drinking this intoxicant. We also have wine inspired notepads, napkins, glasses and more!

Just Tea for Two and Two for Tea!

So many varieteas of tea to choose from in our grocery room and even more accessories to find in our housewares section! We have loads of mugs, kettles, tea pots, infusers, insulated containers and tumblers. We have an enormous selection of teas in our grocery room, both loose and in bags.

Vegan Wednesday! Mock Tuna Salad!

Vegan Garbanzo Bean "Tuna" Salad

1 (19 ounce) can garbanzo beans (chickpeas), drained and mashed
2 tablespoons mayonnaise (I used Vegenaise)
2 teaspoons spicy brown mustard
1 tablespoon sweet pickle relish (I used Woodstock Farms Spicy Chipotle relish)
2 green onions, chopped
1 Cup Chopped celery
salt and pepper to taste

In a medium bowl, combine garbanzo beans, mayonnaise, mustard, relish, chopped green onions, salt and pepper. Mix well. Serve chilled on toasted whole wheat bread (or any bread of choice!). Also delicious all by itself!

Everyday Shea Body Wash Sale!

One of our favorite body washes at the store is the Everyday Shea Moisturizing Body Wash from Alaffia.    This super-luxe wash doesn't dry out my skin, doesn't contain parabens, synthetic fragrance or sodium lauryl sulfate.  It is handcrafted with unrefined, certified fair trade shea butter.    Right now, the 32 oz size is on sale for $11.19 thru the month of January!  My favorite scent is Lavender, but it also comes in vanilla-mint and unscented.

Alaffia sponsers amazing community programs including bicycles for eductaion, maternal health care, and cooperatives in Togo, West Africa (the source for their shea butter).  Visit to find our more information on this amazing company!
