It was May 8,2008 we were invited to be at the Houston Street Fair. A festival that took place downtown San Antonio which is no longer. My son, daughter in-law pictured in this photo ventured for the first time taking our delicious creations to the public. We didn't have much money for a sign, but with a little help from my daughter in law's cricket machine we got one for our future customers to see.
Our sweet journey continues as we continue to grow. Our mission hasn't changed, handmade.
Join us at the Pearl Farmers market on Saturday from 9-1. Reminder that on Sunday there will be no Pearl Farmers Market.
