    Don’t forget on your way to beautiful Lost River to stop in Wardensville at Antiques Etc. for an Espresso, Smoothies, Hostess gift, planning food and music events once a month, etc. Charlie Roy is the new manager, Libby’s son- in-law. Please stop by to see the changes he has made and what is to hopefully come June 18.

    I’ve been providing “LRV” auto stickers for sale at the General Store for several years. Just one more way to express pride in our valley!

    Homemade ice cream July 4th. Carmel, chocolate, and grape nuts, discounts on numerous items. Would love to see you for memories sake.

    Not so awful far away is the new 26,000 square foot gift Shop at Smoke Hole Caverns. (Located just 5 minutes out side of Petersburg)
    It mimics a “Mini Cabelas” and the Christmas decor now looks like you are at “The Christmas Place.” in Pigeon Forge, TN. Floral arrangements like no other in the area. Unique displays…plan for a couple of hours.
