Perking up the Porch



I bought these chairs and little table on sale before the virus brought everything to a standstill. Kind tall uncle put them together for me this past week and I love the dash of color and the comfort for the shop porch!

Great new educational toys for kids! An idea box is a box of wooden coins imprinted with ideas for different types of activities. Great tool to challenge young minds and keep them busy during this complicated time. Available here at the shop or on the web site.

Wonderful Alpaca Felted Soap!



Just received a shipment of more alpaca products. Love these elegant soaps (and scent diffusers) all made by Sandra with her wonderful alpaca fiber. Use the felted soap as an exfoliate wash cloth with the hand crafted soap inside. You can also peek at our wonderful alpaca socks and fingerless mitts in this picture as well.

Felting and spinning fiber at Poppy's 
Attention felters and hand spinners! I finally dug into the vast piled of dyed fiber and got it all packaged up for sale and on the web site and shelves. Lovely solid color merino, variegated merino and some select colors of merino and silk! All good for felting as well as spinning. Natural colored wools are Shetland, Jacob and Blue-Faced Leicester as well as some others.

Delightful Swedish Dish Cloths



Even more than usual lately, I've been trying to be aware of keeping the trash to a minimum and recycling everything that I can. Our cotton "flour sack" dish towels have been very popular and a customer asked if I could get Swedish dishcloths. I never heard of such a thing but one of my fine American made companies had a wonderful selection. A Swedish dishcloth is an absorbent, durable and reusable cloth that can take the place of paper towels in a lot of instances. Made of cellulose and cotton, it's a stiff little thing with a fun picture on it that softens when wet to clean surfaces without streaks. Durable enough for repeated machine washings, made of earth-friendly materials. And the printed designs are delightful! A customer came in yesterday and bought some for friends and herself for their campers. I just had another customer tell me that she puts them in the microwave for one minute to sanitize them (be sure they are wet and stay with the microwave, just in case!)

We have some special new scent diffusers, crafted by our own Alpaca Sandra! These are lovely and incredibly useful. Can be hung anywhere a little scent will soothe or perk up an area such as a car, garage, closet, kitchen cabinets, bathrooms, pet areas and more. Kristen's picture does them justice! We also have a supply of scents and essential oils.

Delightful Leather Cell Phone Cases



These little cell phone cases are just too cute! Made of leather with fun and funny animal faces. They probably won't hold the super large phones (I can get larger cases) but there's plenty of room for my 5 3/4 inch Samsung. Would also be great as a change or other small purse or holder. (Knitting notions, anyone? There are a couple of colors available for most of the styles; contact me if you have a preference. Ship or pickup in Meadows of Dan! $19.99 plus shipping.

Beautiful Horse Wall Art from SPLASHWORKS



I'm in love with these beautiful fabric wall art pieces from Splashworks in High Point, North Carolina. I ordered these before all the shutdown hit and didn't want to cancel because this is another small company. They've been terrific to work with and the product is lovely. The pieces are on the web site and right now I have them as pickup only. I'm not sure how to handle shipping but if you're interested, contact me at leslie.shelor@gmail.com,
