WhistleStop Country Store

Y'all know that WhistleStop carries a variety of products; batter mixes, cookbooks, aprons, and gift items. If you check out our web site, you will see that these are all available wholesale. We ship mostly to small Mom & Pop's and local markets across the country. Bill and his staff work hard at keeping these great items on the store shelves. Since I have gotten involved in the blog, I have been trying to think of a way to make our products available to everyone right here.

We are always having people email us and ask how to get a certain product that they may not be able to find. We get questions about our great marinade. They ask how to purchase an apron, or how to get their hands on our newest cookbook.

So we have decided to open the WhistleStop Country Store, A Pinch of This, A Pinch of That. This way we can make things available to everyone. We can highlight some special products, and offer gift packages for special holidays and events. Hopefully we have worked out the quirks~ time will tell.

Our little country store won't replace our web site, but hopefully make it easier for us to feature a pinch of this, and a pinch of that.

Thanks y'all,

Hey Sandi! Can't wait to check out your website on all of your great stuff. We have a Bazaar every year in our squadron and we make up baskets to auction off and last year I made up a Southern basket so I'll have to see if I can find some things on there for my basket. Do you ship to APO addresses???

Vonda~ APO?...absolutely not a problem! A 'southern' basket sounds like a great idea.
Thanks to all of you for your comments. Really our products are great, but so many people say they are hard to get.
This should make that easier. =D
