The Goats Will Rise Again:
Some goats wandered in this week and brought some cheese with them, along with some made by their bovine friends and some by their sheepish friends.
We also have brie again, although it is not from Goat Rising.
I know it’s not yet October, but we have four designs of Halloween cards that are reproductions of cards that were sent to young residents of Ashfield in 1909 and 1911. The sale of them benefits the Ashfield Historical Society. They’re cool—and some of them are really weird! WHAT were they thinking back then??? Really weird stuff!
The Elmer’s schedule will be as such:
8am – 11am Breakfast Burritos to Go, only (no sit-down breakfast service.) We’ll have coffee and tea and baked goods in our case but not full breakfast.
11am – 5pm Elmer’s Authentic New Orleans Crawfish Pasta
The store will be open all day for drinks, crafts, groceries and all the other things we have.
Sunday, September 30th: 3pm – 5pm
Art opening with new works by Marcine Appel! (Many of you know her as Marcine Eisenberg, but in real life her name is Marcine Appel.)
October 27th 7 – 9 pm Ray Mason! Live! Here at Elmer’s!
Halloween Night! Pumpkin Soup (from our own pumpkins!) and bread! Come on and get hearty before the parade!
