LuLaRoe Pop-up with Katie Dante

By now a lot of you know about the comfortable clothing line LuLaRoe.  Their clothing fits a wide range of sizes and comes in limited run patterns (as well as solids).

Our friend Katie Dante has been a LuLaRoe consultant for a few years now and has a fabulous selection to choose from.  She will be bringing it all to the The Mercantile the evening of March 31 from 5:30 – 7:30.  You may want to get here early, the artists will be setting up for Spring Jubilee and parking will be at a premium.  Come, enjoy dinner at one of the local restaurants and shop here at The Mercantile with Katie.

We will have refreshments while you shop and a fitting “room” available to try on the variety of styles.

January 2017 Class Schedule

January is a tricky month to schedule classes.  We have Market, and Terri is not in the store another Saturday.  But, we always have Crafting A-La-Carte!  Give us a call, times are filling fast (hint: the last week of the month is already fully booked.)

January 6 – 7, 2017 Weather

If we get an accumulation of snow today into tomorrow, any updates to our hours of operation will be posted on our facebook page which streams in the lower right corner of our web page.  It is much easier to post there than it is here.

We are proceeding with a wait and see attitude.  The forecasts vary from one model to another and we have seen the amounts range from 1″ up to 7″.  But nature is a fickle science, all is based on educated guessing based on past scenarios.  We may get less than 1″ and we may get more than 7″, we will wait and see.

Please, be safe and warm.

Thank you & many wishes for a wonderful 2017

A very big THANK YOU to all of our customers and friends for making 2016 a memorable year.  We would not have been able to make it through without all of you.  

As we bid farewell to 2016, we look forward to the possibilities that 2017 has to offer us all.  We wish all of you a very safe and Happy New Year!
