    January 2012 - The Year of the Dragon

    I missed being in Chinatown for the big parade this year but am headed out tomorrow
    to New York City for my annual buying trip.  I'm meeting with my favorite apron designer,
    an Egyptian Cotton importer and plan to spend some time laughing loudly with Anne Taintor. 
    Plus... there are a few restaurants that I'm going to visit!!!
    Work, Work, Work!!!
    Enjoy the news, be sure to stop in and admire all the goodies we found at the
    Seattle Show last month and to hear more about all the good things coming in
    after my big apple venture!

    WELCOME! and Let's get CRAZY!

    Late night painting... but no polka dots this time just a new WELCOME! mat to greet you as you enter BELLA Main Street Market in historic downtown Baker City.
    The repainting of the storefront is finished and we think it looks grand---nearly as fabulous as the store is inside! 
    Stop in this weekend for the BEST MOCHA on the Oregon map!  It's our celebrated signature coffee drink that combines real Hazelnut flavor, Espresso Italiano from Allan Bros. (Oregon's very first coffee roaster) and Ghirardelli cocoa.  Topped with REAL organic whipping cream, of course!

    The newest BBQ tools and great summer condiments have arrived!   Check out the gorgeous Bamboo tools and boards, silicone sauce mops, spice rubs from Tom Douglas and the INTENSELY HOT sauces from Dave's Gourmet.
    Dave's just released a Ghost Pepper Hot Sauce - if you're a fan of the spicy and don't mind having your breath taken away, this would be the hot sauce of your dreams.   I'm crazy for the Habanero Mustard and Travis and Lynn think Dave's Burning Nuts (I know, I can't believe I brought these in either) rate high on the humour scale and more than tolerable - just a slow burn - on the hot scale!

    Let's get Crazy!It's CRAZY DAYS in La Grande!
    Tomorrow marks the beginning of Crazy Days in downtown LaGrande.  BELLA Mercantile will be having a DON'T MISS THIS Sidewalk Sale... starts at 10 am Friday!!!
    $1 items
    $5 treasures
    $10 screaming deals
    $20 SCORES!
    and there's FREE Huckleberry Wine Tasting...
    The Huckleberry bubbles! 
    Sidewalk Sale continues on Saturday...
    this is going to be crazy fun and
    we'll be making CRAZY deals!!!

    Ellee likes the Bike Shrine!

    Ellee Thalheimer is writing an Oregon bike touring book and stopped by BELLA Main Street Market last week.  She likes the Bike Shrine!  We love her blog - check it out at:

    Also heard Robert Penn on NPR the other day and am thinking I'll have to get this book ordered

    Alberto Contador took the Maglia Rosa (pink jersey!) in the Giro d'Italia today after climbing Mount Etna while the Tour of California had a late start today after cancelling yesterday's first day of racing due to snow - lots of snow. 
    Best wishes to all the riders in both races and everyone else out on the road with two wheels, we'll put the best new pics of the season up on the BELLA Bike Shrine and we'll wish a little harder (if that's possible) for more sun, more blue skies and more dry, smooth pavement.
