Autumn is just around the corner...
We are only a few weeks away from the official start of autumn!
Hopefully we will soon feel that slight cool down in the weather
and see the leaves starting to change colors.

This month's newsletter features some wonderful products to help you enjoy
September and autumn, including many new gourmet food products
from Stonewall Kitchen, Republic of Tea, and Willa's Shortbread.
Pictured above is a close-up from our tree by the fireplace
that we currently have decorated for autumn.
