Hello all,

As you may know, Little House is temporarily closed due to a fire that occurred September 8th. Since that time we've come to realize the strength of our community, and are in gratitude to our friends and neighbors who have shared words of support and generously added to our rebuilding fund. We want to thank you for helping to rebuild Little House! 

In these past weeks, we have been working hard: getting construction underway, cleaning, rebuilding, spiffying up the storefront and planning for our grand re-opening. The kind folks at Sub Rosa bakery threw us the best pizza party of all time, complete with Ardent IPA and great northside representation. We also took our staff on a farm field trip on Saturday to Keenbell and Forrest Green Farms. The opportunities to reconnect with our neighbors, our farmers and each other have been uplifting to our spirits, as has hearing from each one of you.

 

A big thank you to Sub Rosa Bakery and all of you who came out to the pizza pop up event on Sept 21st.

We also want to thank: 

Cat Hulburt, a great friend and neighbor, for organizing and administrating this GoFundMe campaign

Jon Goldberg from A for Adventure for designing the Red Hot Little House Art Print, and Studio two three for printing it.

Lynette from Nettie's Naturally who will give a portion of sales of her Supersnacks (available at Ellwood Thompson's, Harvest Grocery and Supply, Shields Market and Whole Foods).

Mark McInyre of Norwood Cottage, who will donate a portion of his sales from the September 20 and 27th South of the James Markets. He will even be sporting a Little House Tshirt at the market! Stop by his booth and take home one of his delicious loaves of bread. One of our favorites is the curry raisin- yum!

Brad Hemp from SausageCraft, who has set up a "Little House recovery event", at their Oktoberfest sausage vending event at The Cask Cafe on October 4. All profits from sausage sales at this event will be donated to Little House. Please mark you calendars- we know you miss SausageCraft Sausage!

Brad Pearson, a friend and neighbor, who made an online auction for his beautiful, handmade glass marbles benefited our GoFundMe campaign. 

Jimmy from Dot's Back Inn who understands being displaced by fire and made a generous donation to our rebuilding fund.

Thank you, our friends and neighbors, for you generous gifts. We can't wait to be your grocery once more. Stay tuned for an announcement of our grand re-opening date!!!

With love,

Erin, Jess and the Little House Staff
