Teddy Bears and Friends

Teddy Bears and Friends
We're getting so many new things in the shop that it's hard to pick just one thing to talk about. But the alpaca is always delightful, especially the Teddy Bear and Friends line of unique plush animals. So soft and cuddly!

A variety of alpacas to cuddle

We're heading into the warm summer season but there are lots of wonderful breezes here in Meadows of Dan. The Blue Ridge Parkway is busy and Meadows of Dan is hopping. I saw some nice peaches up in town this morning and some other lovely produce as well. I heard through the grapevine that Nancy's Candy has some wonderful new flavors in truffles!
