Thanks to all of our vendors who were so willing to share their knowledge and expertise with all of our customers at our Open House. It truly was a magical week-end. For the vendors and us, it was like going away to camp for the week-end! We made friendships and connections that will last a lifetime. I will share a lot more pictures on Monday, but here are a few taken just before the doors were open to our customers….
