Christmas at The Hen House Chicks

We've fallen way behind posting to the blog; so sorry about that. Our FB page is up to date, however, and you can check out everything we've been up to there under The Hen House Chicks. If you don't type "The", it can't seeem to find us. Rather than try to post everything that's gone on in the past few months, I'll just post some pictures of the shop all decorated for Christmas. Hope you enjoy!

1 Month Anniversary!

We reopened 4 weeks ago today! It's been a busy and fun filled month. We're grateful to all the new friends who have stopped by and our loyal clientele who've been with us since the beginning 6 1/2 years ago and encouraged and supported us through our relocation.
We're so happy to be here in our cozy new nest!
