If I were a fish ……

If I were a fish, I’d want my owner to ask Lisa or Jame to provide a home for me.  No they don’t run a pet store or operate an aquarium store.  The Village Merchant is an import store in Grenfell, SK that they own.  It has amazing items but it a fish’s heaven.  Lisa and Jame import hand blown glass mounted on drift wood bases, from Bali.  Each one is unique and different.  You won’t find two fish living in a like bowl.  Of course the bowls can have different uses if you don’t own a fish.  Use your imagination.  They import more wonderful items along with the bowls.  I’ve attached some photos of just a few bowls they have to offer.  Visit their store at 791 Desmond Street Grenfell Sk. and view their website — www.thevillagemerchantimporting.ca to see some of what they have to sell.  They sell to retail and wholesale.

Southern Priaire Railway

The month of September was brought to an end by going on a “Women on the Go” tour.  We traveled by bus to Ogema SK.  Once there we toured the Deep South Museum.  There was a lot to see but time was short.  Next we boarded the Southern Prairie rail train and began our journey.  Top speed was 20 miles per hour. The turn round point was at the ghost town of Horizon.  Returning to Ogema we were served a wonderful  fowl supper provided by Candice Schwindt.  Afterward we boarded the bus and returned to Regina.  I hope you enjoy the small sampling of what I saw.  Lots of wide open prairie! I’ve provided a link to the Southern Prairie Railway and Women on the Go tours website also.
