It’s Rodeo Time Here in Ellensburg.
, our home base, is home to one of the largest rodeos in the nation. During Labor Day weekend each year, Ellensburg turns from a small sleepy farm town to a bustling city with more horses on the road then cars (okay maybe not exactly, but close!) We have an annual family tradition of attending the pancake feed breakfast, country fair (mostly for the corndogs and fresh scones), and usually at least one of the rodeo events. Ellensburg, WA
For those of you that haved asked this is a great article about the attractions in Ellensburg.
Other than attending rodeo festivities we have been busy this week prepping for our booth at the Thorp Fruit & Antique Mall. The space we have been assigned has an open back railing and the right side wall is peg board, which has posed some challenges. We are working on coming up with some innovative ways to make the space feel more like a cozy room. The owners and staff at Thorp Fruit are about the friendliest around and we can not wait to join the team.
We will be spending most of Wednesday setting up the exterior of the booth then moving in our mercantile collection on Thursday. Before we get too carried away with all the friends and family in town for the rodeo and setting up the mercantile, we have listed some great new fall sweaters, boots and dresses on the site.
Here is a peak at the new arrivals:
Hope everyone has a great long weekend!
