Fall Festival Showcases New Products,
New Crafts and Old Favorites
At Still Meadows Farm it’s time for our annual “Fall Festival,” which will be held on Saturday, Sept. 28 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. “As always. we will be making apple butter and selling fall décor, foods and much more! We all love the fall season and we’re getting ready to celebrate!” Janet Smith said with a smile, ”We planted some pumpkins this year and, believe it or not, they grew!”
New handcrafted items are being introduced for purchase at the festival. Stan Smith has made custom tables and benches from wood which was cut and sawed on the farm. The work of a former crafter who once sold her tables and benches at the farm and other venues, but has since retired, inspired Stan’s own craft. The popularity of hand-crafted furniture encouraged Stan to make these products for our customers because of their popularity.
By combining the popular toss game of corn hole with the immensely popular Mountaineers, Luke Smith has created a product that's a sure winner as a Christmas gift.
Luke Smith has been making “corn hole” games in a variety of designs. These may be custom-ordered. “This is becoming a true family business with everyone doing their part, these games would make an excellent Christmas gift.
Janet Smith combines interesting shells and exotic live plants to create home decor gift items... or buy one for yourself!
As another new feature, Still Meadows Farm is showcasing the work of local crafters at their gift shop. We are giving local crafters the opportunity to sell their wares! We are selling work on a consignment basis for the fall and Christmas seasons. Items will be juried and the shop will receive a 25 percent commission for all items sold. Interested crafters may contact Janet at 304-577-6249 or e-mail her at StillMeadowsFarmWV@yahoo.com for an application. We are looking for unique items and will not replicate items we already sell.
We reserve the right to select primitive or country-related items we believe will sell in the store. Products should be decorative or gift items for the holiday season. I know that many of our customers are also crafters and I would like to give them the opportunity to have a venue to showcase their items.
Nothing says "holidays" like frosty windows. Janet has bejeweled antique windows with holiday designs to add cheer to your home.
The farm’s Christmas Open House will be held on Saturday, Nov. 16 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and the ever popular “Natural Wreath Classes” will start on Friday, Nov. 22 and will run through the beginning of December. Reservations are required as the class sizes are limited and dates fill quickly. Wreath classes cost $40 per person.
We will also have some exciting specials for Christmas so be looking for future newsletters.
“Hope to see you at the Fall open house next Saturday. Come and taste the apple butter or take a turn stirring!” invites Janet.
