***When submitting the form, please use ONLY the name you would like to see appear in the magazine: first name only, first name and last initial, or full first and last, whatever you choose, if you are submitting a "kid review" please include first name of child only and age.***

Guys we are SO excited for the first ever Mini City Holiday Market this Thursday at Farmers Hardware, and today we want to highlight one of the great local vendors that will be selling their amazing products at the Holiday Market!
We first visited Lavenlair Farm back in August and fell in love (read more here). Lavenlair Farm was a labor of love for Diane and David Allen, who found the 1820 stone farm house and created the farm with a 100 foot diameter meditative labyrinth planted in lavender as well as a field of nearly 5000 lavender plants representing 22 different varieties of lavender for people to come and visit to relax, recharge and reconnect with each other and with nature.
Now closed for the season, you can still bring the spirit of the farm into you life with their handcrafted products using lavender from the farm. Here's a sampling of just a few of the items that will be available for purchase at the Mini City Holiday Market on Thursday:
For luscious lavender scent around the bath, boudoir, auto or office we recommend Lavender Myst. Only Nature’s mix of organic essential oil and distilled water for your olfactory pleasure.
Fragrant dried bundles ideal for arrangement or crafting.
Like chewing gum for your hands, this relaxing exfoliating putty is fun to play with and softens your skin in seconds. Made from a child/pet safe non toxic recipe including lavender essential oil, the perfect stocking stuffer!
Don't miss out on this fabulous night out with our local vendors, click the link below to get your tickets now, just $12, and we'll see you Thursday!
