     October seems always a busy month! We're definitely into Fall, regardless of the temperature during the day. The leaves are turning and falling, nights are cool, and it's time to put the summer clothes away and embrace our new Fall looks!  
      Please stop in during American Craft Week  to show your support for local and handmade. A lot of artists are entirely dependent on our patronage for their income. As is Crackerjack - and I am truly grateful!

Thank you, thank you!
