Wow - what a holiday! So great to see so many of you!
Just a few reminders... I am placing a UNFI order this week - let me know by Wednesday if you have any case orders. Would probably be willing to split some organic soda cases...
We also have a few new sandwiches coming up - the Medusa Cobb has taken on a life of it's own! Soon, we'd like to offer organic chicken and tuna salads, either tossed onto a salad (Angela-style!) or on a hard roll. Signature sandwiches seem to work better than relying on me to come up with a sandwich of the week, so I think that's the path we're going to take.
We have fresh Beans, Beans, Bean Salad this morning, and we're making fresh pasta and potato salads later today.
We have pie - strawberry rhubarb and apple - and we're offering them with a scoop or two of Julie's organic ice cream. Tasty! If we move these quick enough, we're considering raspberry and blueberry for the upcoming weekend.
We (read: April) is anxious to move onto to a few other plans we've been cooking up. By this fall, we are hoping to offer a few lines of quality toys, at affordable prices. We have several brands in mind - the front of the store needs some alterations first. But stay tuned - this promises to be exciting!
Along the same lines - several of us have an irrepressible interest in the community arts. As soon as we have accrued enough capital, we are planning a renovation of the building behind the Store, to offer both open space for the community, as well as workshops. The idea is pretty vague right now, and such a space will share quarters with several other projects planned back there. But I thought I'd give fellow travelers a nudge - if you are also passionate about community, and about learning, drop in - I'd love to hear what you think!
