Hello Everyone,

          We are quickly approaching the most wonderful time of the year.  A time of family, friends, and food.  We continue to be very busy decorating the rooms in anticipation of many folks, both regular friends and new visitors, stopping in to see us.

          Some of our most popular items are handmade and designed by some incredibly gifted vendors.  These include "Designed by Cinda," "Handmade by Chris,"  "One-Of-A-Kind by Mary," and "Stiches by Pam."  Wreaths, tablescapes, wall decor, home accessories, and more.  What is especially nice is that these vendors are here on a regular basis so you can actually meet and talk with them.

          Our Toy Room is gearing up for the Christmas Holiday, and product is arriving weekly.  Some of the favorite items include Holgate Toys made in Bradford, PA, Channel Craft, and Green Toys, all made in the USA, Klutz activity kits, and an assortment of family games to name a few.  We are also adding new items and in particular Made in the USA Lincoln Logs, and Knex products made in Hatfield, PA outside of Philadelphia.  Remember, none of our toys use a battery.  All products are designed to encourage hands-on learning, exploration and imagination.

          One of our guests favorite items is the Smelly Jelly.  This is an air freshener made of water absorbent crystals, fragrance oil, and distilled water.  How long they last depends on the rate of evaporation.  If the jelly is stored in a warm location, it will last about a month.  If the jelly is used in a closet, it could last up to two years.  One of the best aspects of the Smelly Jelly is that it can be re-hydrated.  When the jelly is dehydrated, it will look like sprinkles.  Fill the jar with 3/4 cup of warm distilled water.  This may be done a couple of times before the jelly loses its fragrance.  When it is time to dispose of the Smelly Jelly just dump the crystals in the trash.  Do not dump them down the toilet or sink.  The crystals will absorb the water and clog the drain.  Also, the Smelly Jelly is not for consumption.  Do not eat it.  Here at the Village we have a dozen plus different scents.  Something for everyone.

Christmas Open House

          This is our biggest event of the year.  The store will be fully decorated for the holidays and will look even better than it usually does.  Our feature this year, as it was last year, is artist Billy Jacobs.  He will be here all day signing his work.


          Local author Bill Robertson will also be here signing his books.  Many of you are very familiar with his work, but if you are not you can visit his website at:  http://bucktailsandbroomsticks.com, and then visit him in person here at the Village.  We have a full selection of his titles which make for great reads during the winter months.
