While you wait…from your friends at MAKS

Correction: Wabash Woollen Works Trunk Show

Ooops...Bad Dru Please be sure and join us on NOVEMBER 14th for the trunk show for Wabash Woollen Works. (Someone might have said October, but she was really thinking it was time I baked her a Coconut Cake for her birthday on October, 14th). Sorry for the inconvenience, but please do join us. We are currently working on a streaming solution and we are hoping that if you can't join us live in the store, you'll be able to attend online. Fingers crossed for Tech Dru.
