It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Today, the town crew is putting up the Christmas tree on the Village Green.

On Friday evening (November 24) from 6 – 8 PM is the Tree Lighting Ceremony.   The Mercantile will be open until 8 PM so you can stop by that evening.

Shop Small (small Business Saturday) is November 25.  We are participating with the Clemson Area Chamber of Commerce for Shop Local Week 2017.  Shop here anytime between 11/25 and 12/2, submit your receipt to be entered into Door Prize Drawings throughout the week.  Just take a photo of your receipt and send it to the chamber (email and other information available here at The Mercantile) and check their facebook page to see if you have won!  Drawings daily until 12/2.

Pendleton’s Second Friday for December is 12/8 from 6 – 8 PM.  We will be having our Christmas Open House that day/evening.

The Holidays in the Village Christmas Market (all handmade goods) will be on the Village Green 11/25, 12/2, 12/9 & 12/16 from 10 – 4.

The Pendleton Christmas Parade is Sunday 12/10 at 2PM – Cindy will be one of the judges this year.

We will be open from 11:30 – 4 on Sunday 12/24 for some of those last-minute gift giving needs.

In the meantime, enjoy your Thanksgiving (try not to eat WAY too much!).

Change of consultant for LuLaRoe pop-up

Our sweet friend Jean Jones has had a bit of a rough time with her recuperation from her hip replacement and the doctors have restricted her activities.  Therefore, she will not be able to join us on the 14th as originally planned.  However, our mutual friend Katie Dante will be able to fill in for her that evening.  Same fun LuLaRoe clothing, just Katie and her inventory rather than Jean and hers.

Week Four – Day Two – Anole Information

Well, it was a busy day yesterday and Terri did not get a chance to post.

We know that the Anole is carnivorous, but are they prey to other animals?  The answer is YES!  Birds, cats, snakes, sometimes spiders, and even humans will kill them.  While humans do not regularly eat Anole, they will kill them.   Sometimes this may be out of fear, or by accident.

An Anole is a good neighbor to have, they eat cockroaches and other pesky invertebrates.
