Buying Local

Mom and I went to this shop while we were out looking for Antique stores.

It also had an Amish Bakery.

So who would have thought in the middle of Nowhere, Oklahoma an Amish shop? It was packed, very busy and smelled so good.
Shawn and I are very diligent about buying local. We buy Stars feed at a local feed store, plants from local nursery, meat from meat shop, produce from Farmers Market in season etc..
Can you just imagine if I lived next to this place?

They even had dates which I love. So Mom and I got some baked good for the in laws, and the EX. My Mom and I are big on bringing gifts where ever we go. FIL likes Oatmeal Raisin cookies so we bought 2 dozen from the bakery.

I bought 2 dozen for the kids, homemade cookies for 3.75 a dozen. Not cheap but worth every penny !

I ask everyone to buy local when they can. Help the local economy and local organic farmers!

don't get me started on Wal-Mart !

My hubby worked for our local Walmart for 6 months.....too long. Yeppers, don't get me started on Walmart either. gah!

But we have bought some of our chicken feed from Walmart because either our local feed stores were out, or they tried to charge $5 more per bag.
Makes me feel a little ill doing so, though.

Oatmeal raisin cookies!
