I've been pretty busy with the B&B but in between times I made nine new tote bags from authentic burlap coffee bags making a unique tote bag, shown hanging in my gift shop. These tote bags can be carried over the shoulder or just by their handles. They are great for work because they hold so much. Each is lined with fabric. These are eco friendly as they are upcycled. They are also "one of a kind" which makes a unique handmade item. We have lots of soy votive candles, locally made fudge sauces, local maple syrup and maple candy, placemats, handmade soap, lotions, sugar scrubs and even strawberry jam! We make a variety of gift baskets and our customers can create their own basket if they wish. We also have Jonathan's Spoons which I hope to get into the shop online for purchase through our online store.
Tonight I'm hoping to get out to the shop to finish the bath teas. I'll be putting together some bath tea sets in the near future so be sure to check back. There are some completely new items I'm working on as well but they are a surprise.
Today most of my time was spent working in the yard, mowing. I'm also gearing up for the second week of August when I plan to transplant perennials and day lilys. Today I went over to my mom's and we marked all of the day lily's I'd like to transplant. I've been planning just how I'd like to orchestrate this. Usually I don't plan at all I just get plants and put them in where ever how ever. They always look nice but this time I really want to accomplish my vision and that is going to take planning!
Our Coffee Totes are available for $30 with free shipping. I hope to have them in our online store this evening barring any unforeseen difficulties that is. Here are some other pictures of the shop and the totes.
