Fall News

Hey folks! Well, it's the first of November and it looks like winter is coming. The Briar Patch is now closed for the season, so we now turn our efforts to our sister store, Late Bloomers. Located in Argos, Indiana we have created a little cozy shop in a little country town. Filled to the brim with a mixture of the old and the new. From primitive pieces to beautifuly crafted hand made wreaths for the holidays. Come on in and find something wonderful. I know this is going to be your new favorite shop.Maybe you need a custom wreath for your home, just let us know and we would be glad to make one to your specifications. Our Holiday open house will be from November 1st thru January 1st. Stop in for sales, drawings and goodies.

Ya gotta love this. We sold refreshments from the tailgate of this great 1940 International pick-up. What a hoot!! This is REAL tailgateing. Come see Rackity Boom (the truck) this year and get some great pictures. If you like vintage, we got it.

Marketplace at folk art show

The Briar Patch is getting ready for our annual Folk Art Show on June 19 and I wanted to share some pictures with you. I wish I had better pictures, but you can get some idea of what we had going on. In the background you can see our big 20 x 40' tent, what you can't see is that it is filled with vendors. Antiques, Primitives, some great vintage jewlery, too much to mention. But I can't forget to tell you, this year we will have Amish made baked goods. Yummmm.I hope you will stop by and see us . E-mail me for directions or further information. More pictures to follow.

Our Friends Garden

I would like to tell you about Our Friends Gardens. A few years after the Briar Patch started, we realized how many of our customers longed for a place in the country. This started us thinking of a new venture we could offer the fine folks that visit us year after year. Last year we dedicated an area of land to make
room for Our Friends Garden. A 12 x 20' space that is already tilled, amended and ready for you to plant. So many people are trying to get back into healty eating habits for their family, and what better way than to plant your own organic garden? We encourage families to come out and enjoy time in the country surrounded by cows, horses and corn fields. Show your children how the food they eat gets from the ground to the table. And what a great Sunday afternoon project to spend with your parents. Bring them on out and let them fuss over their tomatoes..they'll love it. Garden spaces will be available May 1, the cost is $15.00 a month for the 5 month growing season. Water and tools will be made available. Advise is free for the asking. All you have to do is bring your gloves. This could be the easiest garden you've ever grown. E-mail me to hold your space.
