A stacker: 6 teas to go.

If you never heard of either, these are our to-go teas! 
They are great for traveling or if you want your teas during the week but can't find time to come to the shop to get them daily! They are loaded teas, all you do is add ice and water to them!
 They taste exactly as you get them in the shop!

Author Amy Case - Secret of the Waterfall


Sharing the latest book release by Author Amy Case - Secret of the Waterfall 
Some of Amy's books are available at the Barbara Brown Moscato Library in Emporium

Amazon shares a little bit about Amy - born & raised in Emporium I can remember going to her house and riding ponies with her older sister. Fun times. I enjoy reading her books and wish her much success. 

"In {1962}, Amy Nellis was born just outside a small country town, nestled deep within the confines of the Appalachian Mountain Range in Pennsylvania. Growing up in a large farming family, there was always something fun and exciting going on which seemingly inspired her to write her stories. With a love for reading and a passion for writing all of her life, she had a few articles published in the local newspaper. Amy declined various times, when approached as a young adult, to have her articles published. For many years, Amy continued to secretly write and eventually gave it up all together. It wasn’t until many years later, in {2016}, with the gentle nudging from her husband, that she finally permitted her work to become published. Amy gains inspiration for her stories through her and her husband’s travels. Amy Case, now resides in Middle Tennessee, with her husband, Jackie."
