The Kolden Report: And a river runs through it. Sept 25, 2012

Hi, kids!
 
Circle has a new store.   Prairie Pickins is now open for business, offering refurbished finds, gifts for giving and sweet things like ice-cream, chocolates, fudge, caramel apples, etc - and  Great, Great coffee, all set up in old cupboards, dressers, antiques with no conventional shelving.  Even the garbage cans  are old feed sacks!  Connie also has a florist offering plants & flowers.  Prairie Pickins is open Wed-Fri, 12-6 and Saturdays, 10-2.  If you get a chance, stop in and see what Connie has to offer.
