We bought honey from the local honey company. I have lived in Oklahoma all my life and I really had no idea that we had honey so close to us. The Ross Honey Co has been in business since 1935. (Ross Honey Co. via their Facebook account)
A booth was set up from a local Alpaca dealer. I wish I had bought the bundles of Alpaca they had on a stick for the birds to make their nest from. The people have a store front in Yukon, so I will have to make a trip and get some.
We found the home made soaps and lotions from Swinging K Farms. I was struck by the honey patchouli. It was heavenly. Because Diana & I are both involved with DoTerra, we ask her where she bought her essential oils from. Sorry to say neither of us had a business card to hand her. :(
I noticed a man that had a stack of books. We walked over and he told us he was the author of the books he had for sale. His name was Art Anthony, and it was his first publishing. Since Chris is the reader of this bunch, Diana buys him the book. It is called Sulphur River. The flyer boast that if you like westerns you will love Sulphur River. Since it will be up to Chris to read the book and give his opinion on the book, I am sure you will be waiting just like us to she what he thinks of it. If you can't wait for his book report and want to have one of your own, here is a link to his book Sulphur River.
As we leave the building with all our worldly finds we see two local police officers at a house. Yep, you guessed it....that lady that was screaming at the other one to stay out of her drive was sitting on the porch. The police were going up to her and as I looked at her and she glared at me. I attempted to not make eye contact...LOL. I didn't want to get get whacked by her!
I make a call to tell the guys we are going to make one more stop, in Yukon. We make our way to downtown. The new craft mall was where we were headed. I had an agenda. The friend we saw at Minco had reminded me about something I want to check out. There is a booth that has pieces of the Old Yukon's Best Flour Mill sign, and I think I want to own a piece of this nostalgic piece of Yukon, Oklahoma. I am so excited to be a proud owner of an old piece of rusted sign...LOL....Yukon's Best Flour The interesting part of this little bit of history is that Yukon's Main street is on Rt. 66 and so is the flour mill, and the sign had been dark for quite some time, and just this summer was given new life with a brand new sign. So you see why I wanted this little bit of Yukon America. :)
