Champaign, OH:  A Snowy Homecoming


Happy Sunday, lovely little local market customers!!

Well, your long lost market manager is finally home, having left sunshine and 80 degrees, and returning to this snow globe type of weather. I was gone for a month, and totally missed the whole autumn season, but the snow makes a pretty landscape.

I’m sitting here with coffee, and ready to place my market order for the week! Have you placed your orders?

Also…PLEASE NOTE!!!

This market is the last before the Thanksgiving week break that we take!!!

That means it’s time to thank about all that you will need to get ready for the holiday!!! Again, there will be no market ordering or pick up, Thanksgiving week.

Also…PLEASE NOTE!!!

Although I am back in town, and will be helping at this week’s market, I am unable to bake for the market. I am totally jammed up with appointments, after having been gone for so long, leaving me no time to bake.

BUT…if you want your usual Cosmic Charlie dinner rolls, breakfast rolls, or any of my bread products, please contact me, via email, place your holiday order, and I can have everything baked, and ready for pick up, at the shop, Wednesday before Thanksgiving!! Please do not hesitate to place a holiday baking order!!

Ok…I think I covered all things market!!

Sending all the Sunday vibes…

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam
