Look at that ric-rac trim on the blue one. Just precious. This is just a sample of what's available. They would look sweet on your little one or as a nursery decoration....they are only 8-10 dollars each.

This is our Feed on the Word dinnerware. Microwave and dishwasher safe...we can order any pieces you would like for you. We are putting together a gift registry so you can make a wish list at OCHS. Great for a wedding or birthday or even Christmas. Make your list, then send your husband to us to shop. Or your wife....I shouldn't assume our customers are women!

And we turned them into this. They smell wonderful!
When you come to visit you can check out where some of Santa's elves live...in a hollow tree just like those other famous TV elves.
Here's a peek into their little house.
We will be open Sunday, November 11 from 1-4pm. Stop by and have some cider and cookies with us. Many other downtown merchants will also be open tomorrow.

Some were huge and some were small. Some were being flown in formations almost like airplanes!
These kids were trying to get these crazy animal kites off the ground. They were made by people in one of the clubs.
Kids of all ages were flying...anyone could join in.
Check out all the strings on this giant!

In this picture you can see how the old firehouse (now the Rt66 Hall of Fame Museum) is connected to the old city hall building (now Old City Hall Shoppes and the Livingston Co. War Museum) by the upper floors. Yes, those are bars over some of the windows..those are old jail cells.

Today I caught the artists painting. The sign was designed and is being painted by Diaz Sign Art...a very talented family of sign artists from our own hometown of Pontiac.
In this one you can see a glimpse of the design taped up on the wall next to the painters. I'll keep you updated with pics as more progress is made. They estimate 5 days to paint the sign...but of course I'm sure much depends on the weather.

We have a great little painted twin bed for sale. I love the coverlet too...it's a traditional woven spread, but with a fun daisy motif. I think Red Riding Hood is something that was used in a store. The painting on it is wonderful.

They are dishwasher and microwave safe and many different serving pieces can be ordered. We have chosen several to feature for our first order in stock.
They are simple enough to go in a contempory home and classic enough to mix with vintage china and glassware. They make great wedding or housewarming gifts. Stop by and check them out!
