    • They have the best apple cider, jams, and pumpkin bread!


Also, let me just tell you all about this sweater. It’s so soft and comfy, also not to mention the color is stunning. When I first saw this sweater, I was instantly drawn to it. This feels like you are wrapped up in your favorite blanket all day. This is a compliments item when I wore this last week, everyone who saw it, had to have it and needed to know where to get it. This compares to a similar cardigan from Free People but is by no means compares in quality and price.

For reference, I am 5’4″ and usually a little leery of buying the longer cardigans because of length, but it fits great.
