** We’ll be dancing this September…

Bringing in good luck this Friday the 13th

** Greetings from downtown Todd!

That’s right, this Friday is Friday the 13th! And what better way to celebrate than with a CommUnity Pot Luck Dinner followed by a Contra Dance! So promenade right on down to the Todd Mercantile!
The dinner starts around 6pm, followed by the dance around 7:30pm. Sure is a good time to come out and meet your neighbors, have a whole lotta fun and enjoy some great food and music! Just bring the family, friends, neighbors and your favorite dish to share – oh, and don’t forget those dancing shoes! The dance is only 5.00 for those over 12 to help pay the band. And there is no experience necessary – they run through each dance before hand.

Then next Friday, September 20th is a date to save as one of Todd’s favorite bands returns – The Tillers! It will be a pay at the door event to cover the cost of the band ($10.00). These boys are a big hit where ever they play… from SXSW to NYC to here in Todd… they are traveling through the area and wanted to bring their music back to Todd – where they opened up for Doc Watson the last two years he played here. Check out the band and some of their tunes here ( . The music will start at 7:00pm and you won’t want to miss it. The band included comments about playing with Doc Watson here in Todd in one of their recent CD’s and a song about playing with him on their most recently released CD – check out the video for their song The Neverending Road here ( !

Then the following weekend Charles Welch will be returning to Todd to play at the Todd Mercantile on Saturday the 28th. He’ll be playing at 4pm in the gallery. Come on out and meet Charles and sit a spell while he plays some tunes for us.

We have some great new stuff here at the store… including tile coasters and trivets that 50% of the proceeds goes toward the Watauga Humane Society! They make a great hostess gift that also gives back. Stop in and check them out!

As always, we hope to see you soon in Todd!
