As some of you already know, my sister in law and I have a retail craft business in Johnson City in the Old Lumberyard Mall. We typically go over 2-3 times per month to "fluff' everything and put out new merchandise. Today we made our first trip with Christmas items and we will have many more in the coming weeks. We had a great lunch at the Silver K Cafe next door and we highly recommend stopping there whenever you are in the area. We also went out to the Blanco Settlement on the Henley loop (rr165) outside of Blanco. It is one of cutest gift shops you will find, a must see! Another must see is the Deutsch Apple Bakery. It is at the turn onto 165, stop in for coffee and a muffin or cookie, you will be glad you did!
