A small-town #VT bakery had a fridge failure at a most inopportune moment. What to do? Turn to the neighbors…
Wow. We stopped counting the number of kind and generous neighbors who offered us a fridge to borrow … it was at least 15!
THANK YOU to everyone for your generosity and support of our local business. And thanks to Front Porch Forum for giving us a way to access that generosity.
With our borrowed fridge in place, we are happy to say that the bakery hours will continue uninterrupted. We look forward to seeing you on Fridays at the Richmond Farmer’s Market and/or on Saturday mornings on our front porch.
And if you were one of the many people who contacted us with a fridge offer, please stop by for a little “thank you” treat!
