This is as sparse as it gets – don’t know what to say about it.  I’ll just carry on with the tasks at hand:  putting the garden to bed,  bucking and stacking the wood – sounds so simple!  I’m going to be ready for hibernation when it comes.

Are you afraid of ghosts? All you brave souls out there come join us at the Silvery Slocan Historical Society’s 2nd Annual Hallowe’en Coffee House as locals share their spookiest stories! Just weeks away, this year’s event – a fundraiser for the historical society – will be held on Saturday, October 29, 7 pm at New Denver’s Silvery Slocan Museum, so mark your calendars.
Many of those fantastic performers from last year have agreed to appear again, including emcee Hank Hastings, storytellers Art Joyce, Susie O’Donnell, and Therese DesCamp, and musician Noel Fudge. Admission is just $5 and seating is limited so get your tickets – available at Raven’s Nest – before they completely vanish. If you have any ghost stories you’re ‘dying’ to share, please email them to <SilverySlocanHS@gmail.com>.
The Silvery Slocan Historical Society would like to thank the Slocan Lake Gallery Society and the Village of New Denver for their support in making this event possible.

RAVEN’S NEST – Planet Conscious Clothing, Blankets, Gifts & Books
If you have not been in lately, we have recently added some new handcrafted product lines that we’re really excited about. The Kootenay Crate Co. offers small, functional-yet-stylish decorative crates that are handmade in Creston.
From Cherryville’s Crescent Moon Duvet & Pillow Co., we have heavenly soft, hypoallergenic pillows – in three sizes – and a queen size duvet made of organically grown wool (70% alpaca / 30% sheep) and 100% organic cotton. Warm, comfortable, and environmentally friendly, it’s all quality handcrafted right here in rural BC.
Also new to our shop are beautifully-coloured, hand woven baskets from Ghana’s Baba Tree Basket Company. These fair trade baskets come in many sizes and designs, from beach and shopping baskets, to bicycle baskets. Baba Tree weavers are paid fairly and their proceeds support communities in one of the world’s poorest areas.
In addition, our racks and shelves are well-stocked with the finest alternative fashions for Fall/Winter ’16, eco-wool blankets, stimulating books, and world music CDs. Stop by on your next trip downtown!
Open every day until further notice: Monday through Saturday, 10:30 am to 4:30 pm; Sundays, 11 am to 3 pm. Closed Sunday, October 16, due to scheduled power outage. Contact us at 358.2178 or visit us on Facebook.
