It's craft show time!! Our last craft show is December 6, at Parcells Middle School in Grosse Pointe. Call me right away if there is something specific you want me to bring to that show.
Thanksgiving is late again this year. Don't wait until Black Friday to order your Christmas gifts. You will get the best selection if you order now. Every single day you delay will make a difference in getting what you want. However, I always have plenty of stock on the shelves, and can help you choose from what is already made.
A few customers have been coming to my house to pick up orders and shop. Just please call a few days ahead to schedule.
Shop as soon as you can at the Ann Arbor markets; some December market days can be wiped out by the weather. Always call me if you want to be sure I am going to the market on a specific date, before making the trip. (734-525-3549).

Customer service is a must. I’m always glad to offer my help to make sure you get exactly what you need.”
