Food for Thought Spring Fling Outdoor Market Tomorrow!

Tomorrow is the day of our first annual Food for Thought Spring Fling Outdoor Market and we are soooooo excited!  We have the grill waiting for the veggie burgers and the locally grown potted plants have taken over the backroom (the lavender smells AMAZING!).    We hope you will join us at 11:00 for the cooking class and then grab a bite to eat, enjoy the amazing and talented work by our local crafters, snag a bit of food produced in Kansas, find a new plant for your garden, have your kiddos make mom (or grandma or dad) a cute potted plant and finish up with a sweet treat!   

Come join all the fun from 11 a.m.-4 p.m.!!!!

Food for thought's Spring Fling Vendor Highlight: Skr@ps Bracelets

If you have sewn, you know you always end up with a bunch of scrap fabric that you have no idea what to do with!  Well, this innovative individual has come up with a great way to re-purpose those scraps, as well as a fun fashion statement! 

"Each bracelet is made with scrap pieces of fabric which means no 2 are alike. They might have the same fabric or colors but they pattern never is the same. Which makes each bracelet a one of a kind piece of jewelry!"

Visit our outdoor market this Saturday and stop by Skr@ps to discover this fun line!
