Pamela & Dennis are planning a road trip that will include stops at several candy kitchens.
Patricia & Frank have purchased a vintage camper trailer and are making plans for summer travels.
Andy & Chelsy are opening a boutique hotel in West Duluth! We're very excited for this new venture open this spring. If your traveling to Duluth and need a spot to stay in West Duluth's craft district that is also close to lots of Duluth attractions...give this hotel a try! And no worries, Andy will still be at the candy kitchen too!
Patricia Canelake added these wonderful milepost signs to a tree stump that was left after cutting down a tree that was leaning toward the shop. Sad to lose the tree, but very happy to get a great landmark sign!
