The Whistle Stop... closed the next two weekends.

Sorry... but, plans have changed once again. 
It's been that kind of year! 
~~~

The Whistle Stop will be closed 
the next two weekends. 
October 21st - 22nd & 28th - 29th

When I said The Whistle Stop was as bare
as Old Mother Hubbard's cupboard after Junkstock... 
I wasn't kidding!
As I was trying to put the shop together this week 
I realized how true that really was! 

We signed on a while ago to do a show a customer 
of ours is putting on in Pierce, NE. 
This Saturday! 

What were we thinking?!!! 
We were thinking it would be fun, we would make 
some money, we can fill the booth space & 
the shop after Junkstock... no problem!
We must of been thinking...
we are 
Superman & Superwoman!!! 
Well, our thinking was wrong... real wrong!

We decided that it is best to be closed 
 the next two weeks so that we can catch up 
on our custom orders and get ready for
Christmas in the Country 
(November 4, 5 )
&
Holiday Open House at the shop! 
(November 4, 5, 6 ) 

We want our Christmas events 
 to be as wonderful as we can make them! 
... for you! 

Thanks once again for your 
patience and understanding! 

P.S. if you should happen to find 
two red capes..
please return to The Whistle Stop.
I'm sure we lost ours. ;)

Sorry, The Whistle Stop is closed October 14th...


... I'm slowly recovering from an AWESOME 
week at JUNKSTOCK!
(I say week... because we started set up on Monday! 
And tore up the floor the following Tuesday!)

We will be closed this weekend... Oct. 14th & 15th
as we work on getting the shop filled up again!

Here are a few photos of our booth!
It's amazing to see how much of this is GONE!
Boy, do we have work to do! 
Not to mention the all the everyday catch up!
- A laundry pile almost as big as our tent!
- Book work... the desk is knee deep in paperwork!
- Vacuum... seriously I could make a rug out of the dog hair on the stairs! 
- Whistle Stop... is as bare as Old Mother Hubbard's cupboard!
- Workshop... there are no words to explain it... maybe EXPLOSION! 
- Up coming shows & events! ... oh, my am I tired just thinking about it! 

We'll get it done... we always do! 
Eventually! 




















We're as nuts over JUNKSTOCK as this 
little squirrel is over acorns! 

Can't wait for JUNKSTOCK 2017!

Stay tuned for more pics of Junkstock at 
it's new forever home Sycamore Farms, Waterloo NE.

the sad & the smiles...



A little story... the sad & smiles of life. 
 
This past week the Mr.'s dad passed away. 
Living so far away meant we didn't get to say good bye. 
My sister-in-law though had a great story to tell that turned the sad into smiles! 


The Mr.'s mom has Alzheimer's. 
My SIL, Sue sat down with mom to tell her the news.  
It went something like this!
