Celebrating Memorial Day Weekend-Leelanau Style...

 Friday, May 25 begins a new summer season here in the county. Spring in Leelanau county is my favorite season.  There are the Trilliams to enjoy.  The elusive Morel Mushroom to forage, the black morel are mostly gone you will still be able to find whites.  Word of caution, although many are edible it is always better to play it safe. Ask an expert.

Get your binoculars out and enjoy The Second Annual Leelanau Peninsula BirdFest which takes place May 30 - June 3. It's a chance to see more than a hundred different species of nesting birds, including the rare Great Lakes Piping Plover. There's all kinds of field trips and special guests including Jerry Weinrich, "Godfather of the Kirtland’s Warbler" and keynote speaker Greg Butcher, the Director of Conservation for National Audubon.

The Sleeping Bear Dunes' designation as the most beautiful place in America by Good Morning America last summer will be bringing in people into our county which will be a win win for the area business'.  The Park is one of my favorite places on earth in fact I plan on camping there this weekend.

Don't forget the Fiber Frenzy

Summer is almost here...

Judy and I have been finishing up our Spring Cleaning here at the store.  It is funny how many WIP's (works in progress) we have stashed all over.  The basement here is large which means that many of our samples and projects go there to hide from us.  So after Judy and I took our allergy pills (dust bunnies run rampant) we brought up those samples.  This weekend they are all going to be 25% off.  In celebration of this warm weather, we are having a 30% off all inside merchandise (excludes consignment, Floriani and furniturre).  So come to Cedar and enjoy the Village wide yard sale and our spring cleaning sale.
