    It's presumably the Orton family, since I believe those crackers are a Vermont Country Store product. Love that place.

    If you don't know about the Vermont Country Store, it's worth checking out. A cool catalogue mail order biz, but an even cooler store to check out. Plus, it will bring you close to Timberridge's favorite place, Londonderry VT.

    Agreed Danno. I like to go there to smell the handcrafted soaps and escape the raw commercialism of Manchester. Being able to stop in Peru and Londonderry on the way is just a bonus.

    Is this your go-to spot for holiday gift baskets for your ECRC friends at Magic?

    I like think of it as the Walla Walla of the East minus the downtown traffic congestion.

    I sense they don't appreciate my occasional bumps of their thread, so I'm not sure how they would take a larger overture toward friendship.

    Love looking at that catalog! So many old time things in there - things from my childhood. Bought these last year just because. When I was a kid we had these (long long before anyone thought of "Elf on a Shelf.") My brothers and I would fight over them and play war with them. LOL! Sadly my mother, in a cleaning fit got rid of all her holiday decorations without asking me if I wanted anything so they were lost. Very happy to find these for a bit of nostalgia.

    Maybe we can send some elves to the crankier wing of the ECRC to lift their spirits?

    You know what this thread needs? Some good 'ol homemade Chex mix. Oh so good... way better than what you buy in the store. I make it for my local friends at the holidays and it's always appreciated. I stick with the original but there are a ton of recipes for every palate on their site - they even have gluten free recipes:

    Tasty! I hadn't had the homemade stuff for years until I moved to W2 and a neighbor gave it out at the holidays. At first I scoffed (LOL!) but then I nibbled on it and was sold. Not sure why homemade is so much better than store bought but there is def. a difference.

    Neighbor has since moved away and I was so bummed that she wouldn't be making that I had to take matters into my own hands and start making it myself. Last year was the first time I made it and handed it out. I could tell a couple of the new neighbors were skeptical as I was the first time I rec'd it but I later heard from them how much they loved it. One of them said it totally saved her because some people stopped by unexpectedly and it was all she had on hand to offer them for snacks.

    When I was in high school a friends grandfather had a house near Bromley that we used whenever it was empty, a few years later (early to mid 80's) I was up there with his sister and we both noticed how much Manchester had changed, especially since there was a Volvo sponsored tennis tournament going on that weekend . About 10 years later I worked for a guy who had a house near Stratton that I used a lot and Manchester was nothing like it was before and everyone you talked to had moved there from NY.
