Crazy Woman Trading Company


Friday night was the Christmas opening in our downtown.  It's too cold for me to deal with it but I went down today to look at the pretty Christmas things. ?????????????? Very few.  I can't see that many of the businesses tried very hard with their windows.  This one, however, happens to be one of my favorite shops and I have been friends with the owners for a long time.  Whatever the time of year exuberance pours out the windows, doors, window boxes - whatever the season is.  

Crazy Woman is the name of a canyon near here.  It was named after a very sad story which I will not relate here.  This Crazy Woman Trading Company is a much happier place.  Willis and Linda have an old golden lab who comes to greet everyone at the door and they're as full of enthusiasm as they were when they first opened their store 11 years ago.                                    Diane
