Some more photos....Thanksgiving goodies!

The forgotten holiday in the retail world...Thanksgiving. Seems we retailers have to jump from Halloween right to Christmas without so much as a nod to the celebration of cooperation, thankfulness and a bountiful harvest. This year I have an entire area devoted to the feast. Some of what you will find; vintage tablecloths and linen napkin sets, Victorian napkin rings (some engraved), imported French cutting boards, pumpkin shaped candles (great hostess gift!), piles of ironstone platters, vintage salt & pepper shakers, vintage mounted & stuffed pheasants (lovely in a centerpiece).

One of the items you will find on this "loaded with bounty" table is
L'Epicurien's Cranberries cooked in Pays d'Oc wine. Served cold with cheeses, crackers, or bread, it's a true delight. Warmed up, it's perfection with duck, pheasant or turkey. The pièce de résistance would be a cranberry glaze for your turkey! Recipe below:

1 jar L'Epicurien cranberries
1/2 cup minced onion
2 Tbls olive oil
1 cup orange juice
1 cup dry white wine

Saute onions in the olive oil, add the white wine and reduce. Add the orange juice and reduce again. Add the cranberries and reduce until just thick. Serve over your roasted fowl.

Isn't that the truth! Well, we left our farm table with stacks of mini pumpkins down the center in our large display window. Might look strange to some who pass side is Thanksgiving, the other is Christmas, but what the heck! LOL....
