Things to do and not to do at the store

Hi Folks-

And it’s fall, finally, maybe, I kinda hope so. 73 degrees on the porch last night, which is not at all fall like.

So we have finalized the date for the Uncommon Market Holiday Wine tasting. Saturday, November 11 from 3 to to 7 in Montpelier. $25.00 per person and if you’ve been you can stop reading now. If you haven’t been this is a really fun event, 30 wines to taste, knowledgeable wine people, and gorgeous food. The Uncommon Market brings a beautiful spread of food that we do for catering, food that I do at home and food that you actually could do at home too. Wines are in the store the week before Thanksgiving. 12 or more bottles of wine that are ordered that evening (and frankly who can’t use a case between holiday parties and special meals) get a 12% discount. It’s actually hard not to win in this scenario. Tickets available on Friday October 20th.

Five weirdest product questions I’ve been asked lately:

  • Do you carry rifles?…Nope, not that Uncommon

  • Do you sell Cod sperm?… Ah NO, super NO (who’s job is that??)

  • Do you sell worms?…I kinda get this, I like to fish ….but no, under the soup you won’t find that handy little container of crawlers, blech!

  • Do you have the “Exotic Love rub”…actually we did but the whispery voice made it unnerving. It was a brand called “Rub with Love” and they had an exotic mushroom rub…

  • Do your fish have brains with them?…Whew tricky…they all did … the whole fish do (trout and special order can)…watcha looking for?
