I'm planning on doing some old-fashioned "in person" shopping this weekend in Grand Cane. If you're in the local area, put this Saturday's Grand Cane Pioneer and Trade Day on your agenda! The activities begin at 10:00 and last throughout the day.
Jody Gore and the DeSoto Arts Council will do a classroom demonstration with adults and children in the craft of making corn husk dolls. Severn Doughty will display tools and goods that typically were used by pioneers. Joe Hartley, a nationally known wood carver, will demonstrate his craft. Wayne Roberts, with experience in local archaeological digs, will have a display of assorted arrowheads.The event will also feature craft, art and food vendors.
There will be a horse & buggy parade, lots of vendors and demonstrations, not to mention shopping! There's the Raven Bookstore and Village Creations antiques, and oh, the wonderful quilt store!
It's a quick drive to Grand Cane from Shreveport/Bossier so get on out and see what's happening over there.
