My Favorite Sandwich

Go Angola's Garage Sale & Flea Market was a success. I am happy to note that we also did well and I brought home considerably less than I brought to the sale.

On another front. Mitchell's is preparing for the upcoming Prom Fair. This is our first venture of this kind. We hope that it helps reduce possible congestion in the parking lots on the circle downtown due to demolition and construction that will be coming up soon. It also gives kids a chance to kick back, eat some food and have some fun while choosing and getting fitted for their tuxedos. Everyone planning on attending Prom is welcome including parents.

A word on Cahoots Coffee Cafe. They have been very gracious in allowing the use of their facilities to host this event. If you haven't been or tried their food, I suggest that you give it a whirl. Their cook Adam does a great job, particularly their interestingly named sandwich "The Fungus Among Us". It's a portabella mushroom sandwich that is probably my favorite thing on the menu. Their mushroom soup is pretty terrific also. The cafe's business helps to fund their mission to help "serve our Youth by providing a safe, non-threatening and non-judgmental venue to share their talents, develop meaningful relationships with caring adults, and cultivate their own gifts." It's a great cause, so if you can, stop by for lunch and get some good food and good coffee. Check out their website www.cahootscoffeecafe.com. There's a menu you can view online.

Garage Sale & Flea Market Feb. 20th

While I am disappointed at the loss of the Super Bowl by the Colts, I have to admit that I am happy that it went to a deserving team. The Saints are no longer the "ain'ts" and that is a good thing, so I will be optimistic and look forward to next year for the Colts (and Rams for those of you who know me well).

Just a note to everyone. My store will be closed on Saturday, Feb. 20th. I'm not taking the day off, I'm taking part in a "garage sale and flea market" that our local downtown organization has put together. It will be at the "old Angola High School gym". There will of course be clothing, much of it from home and perhaps a few things from the store. Hopefully we'll be able to get rid of some of the kid's toys that we have at home. It is my wife's idea that I take part since she has kind of an aversion to retail sales. Although a garage sale is not retail, I'll defer to her in this case, because happiness is not always being right.

Super Bowl Sunday!

Hello Everyone! Is everyone looking forward to watching the Colts win another Super Bowl?! Or will it be the Saints? My money (if I had any) would be on the Colts. Peyton Manning and Co., I think, will be too much for Drew Brees and the rest of the Saints.

My Colts Sweatshirts and Jackets have sold pretty well. I still have 2 leather Colts jackets left. ONLY $87.50! They are in size XL and 2XL. They are longer in the body so some taller guys could wear these comfortably too. In addition, I have pull-over hoodies, a pr. of Colts gloves, a baseball style cap and a winter knit hat.

Welcome to my Blog. This is new to me and the store, I'm just trying to see if this works for me.
