The town of McCausland now has a one stop shop for all things original, handmade and antique.  Peaceful River Trading Company is celebrating their Grand Opening on Thursday, May 13th from 4:00pm - 8:00pm.  The ribbon cutting will be at 4:30pm and there will be plenty of refreshments and door prizes throughout the celebration.

"We've been creating our pieces and selling them at craft shows for years.  We thought it was time to truly showcase our pieces in a more relaxed and inviting atmosphere," expressed Sheila Bosworth, president of Peaceful River.  Bosworth has eight years of experience organizing craft shows and has been involved in other retail businesses.  She runs Peaceful River Trading Co. with business partner Kit Gleason, a retired Army veteran and travel consultant.  "This store has a little something for everyone and I look forward to growing a thriving business in McCausland."

In addition to the many unique and artistic pieces, Peaceful River Trading Co. also has a room dedicated to outdoorsmen, as well as items on consignment and exhibits of artwork and crafts from area artists.  "We would also like to host a variety of events for people in the area involving the artwork we feature and the items we can create", said Bosworth.  The store will also be selling flavored coffee and tea.  Peaceful River Trading Co. will be sponsoring a small farmer's market weekly on Thursdays from 4-6pm starting May 13th as well.  "We are hoping to provide a broad range of products for the people in northern Scott County in a fun environment," says Bosworth.

Peaceful River Trading Co. is open from 10 am- 5 pm Wednesday through Saturday and 11 am to 4 pm on Sundays.  It is located in the former McCausland Savings Bank Building at 302 North Salina Street.
