More Farm Truck Progress

Now that we have a truck that can move on its own, I (Lisa) become more inspired to work on it.  We are planning on this truck being used around the farm and around town.  That being the case, it definitely needed lights.  This last week I worked on adding lights and wiring them all up.  The rust on the bed was removed as well as possible and it was treated with a product called Ospho.  This will eventually dry and harden so the rust will not come back and the bed can be painted.

Paint An Alpaca!!!

Oh yes, we are not kidding, come visit us on Sunday, April 2nd from 2-4:30 PM and YOU can paint an alpaca!

Now for the fine print:

This is a special event by Canvas and Corks. Creativity is highly encouraged, however painting (as in applying paint to one of our alpacas), is highly discouraged.

We look forward to seeing you here!

We’re Here For You

Golly, how about that weather we are having?  While it is great for people like me because I usually dread February, it is bad for business, when your business is selling things to keep you warm!  With that being the case, we have cut back on the hours we’ll have our store open.  Now, since we still want to be available for you when its time to buy that unique item you can only find here, we will be able to open the store when it is convenient for you!  Yep, try getting this kind of service at a chain store, it will not happen.  So, how do we know when you want to shop?  Easy, either send us a message via email, on our Facebook page, or call us to schedule your shopping experience.  It’s that easy.  As always, there is never any pressure to buy anything, but you may want to give our alpacas some treats while you’re here.  Our store includes not only hats, gloves, mittens, scarves and other accessories, but also stuffed alpaca fur teddy bears and other novelty items.

Farm Truck – 2017 is the year!

Great news!
Our in-house team worked without rest, tackling the engine, transmission and drive-shaft issues. A new drive shaft was custom fabricated. This was a job that a local machine-shop was unable to tackle. But we do not take no for an answer, so an industrious friend or two managed to make a perfect drive shaft.
The drive shaft fit, the drive train aligned properly and now Farm Truck is mobile!
We are still short a few odds and ends, like any glass for the cab and an interior. But we are undaunted!
