Our Products in a New Shop (Market 1023)

We were spending all day Saturday at the Museum of the American GI, for their Living History Weekend. I had found a cute restaurant to try. And then I came across this gorgeous home/body/gift shop! I looked all over…

Hill Country Handmade Market

Just wrapped up the inaugural Hill Country Handmade Market! Organized by the ladies that run my favorite Boerne Handmade Market, this was a little branch off from that.  Their idea is that this market will be in a different location each year.  This year was just down the road in Comfort.

Our Products in a New Shop (Shapeshifters)

I was approached by Shapeshifters a few months ago, with a sweet and enthusiastic e-mail.  I quickly learned all about this new business in Boerne, could see that the owners had a passion for other small local businesses, and knew a great partnership was going to unfold.   The owners, Hank and Pamela Hattoy, stopped by my shop one day for a visit and sampling.  And next thing I knew,…
