What's Happening

The store did very well over the Whiskey Flat Weekend with lots of sales.  Buyers were able to use our new credit card feature – an iPAD set up for credit card charges.  We will have a workshop for all gift shop docents to learn the new system by the middle of March.

The Curmudgeons donated everything that was left after their art sale to the museum to be sold in the Country Store.  Thank you so much for the donation!!  In March check out the beautiful new T-Shirts, jewelry and other items.
