The Christmas Rendezvous this past Sunday in Augusta was absolutely the best way to kick off the Christmas season. I love how our small town all comes together to make it such a special day. Many people began their day by picking out a Christmas tree. We have a small, but mighty 4-H club that does a fantastic job of finding beautiful trees to sell each year.
Mosey on down the street and you found us at Latigo! We have lots of wonderful Montana made gifts that are certain to make any recipient very happy. These cute gals found some fantastic Christmas cards by Montana artist Connie Herberg. (Pssst…the gal on the right is Cathy Dombrovske who is a super talented potter who lives right here in Augusta!)
Our little town is blessed to have the Bunkhouse Inn. This business was originally opened in 1912 and is currently in the process of being restored by its new owners. This is such a charming place that I couldn’t resist sharing some pictures. The just finished restoring the floors on the ground floor of the building…aren’t they gorgeous!!
Our youth/senior center was packed with vendors! You could find anything – handmade gloves, soap, leather works, crafts, pottery….I could go on and on! Everyone gets involved with the Rendezvous each year, even our high school students.
The day finished with our Festival of Trees. If you didn’t find a tree at the tree lot this morning, well then you were able to buy one all decorated and ready to go here! The proceeds went to a great cause. This year’s Festival of Trees was held at a new business that is in the process of opening in Augusta. Our old General Mercantile building is being restored by a terrific family who is bringing an antique business to town, and the whole community was so excited to get to finally see inside.
This was an amazing day from start to finish. Just another reminder of how special our little town of Augusta is. Merry Christmas everyone!
