The holidays are approaching and we can’t be certain that the government
won’t close our shop down again so please think ahead and begin your winter
holiday shopping now. We have some great new items that will be perfect for
folks on your list. Come on in and get a start on your gift giving!


One never knows what each day is going to bring…that’s a fact that we all know
and live with. However, even with that knowledge, some days can throw us for
a loop! I had one of those days on September 20th. I am an avid cyclist; while I
was pedaling along, a driver, blinded by the afternoon sun, smashed right into
me and caused quite a bit of damage to my body. I was airlifted to a trauma
center and spent a while in the hospital. I am home now but still have a bit of
recovery to do. In the meanwhile, I have been blessed to have friends,
especially Kathy, Donna, Laurinda and Karen, and family help me out in
numerous ways. Some of these people, and even a few customers, have been
running the gallery for me. I recently started to work in the gallery again and
have been overwhelmed with all the support I have received. Definitely a silver
lining! Thank you all for all you are doing to help out and for your patience while
I reduce my hours for a bit so that I can get well. It takes a village and Magnolia
is just that place!
Peace to you all, Sue Wheeler, owner
