 The next town over is known for its Black Walnut Festival every fall. Another town in my county is known for its Apple Festival each September. My town is a blink and you miss it town.

Hi I'm Wyndi. I live in a small villiage in Ohio. I've met the Villiage Idiot and wish his villiage would come claim him.

 I have never heard of Reyers and The Winner but I have heard of Daffin's. It started out in Woodsfield, Ohio back in the early 1900's.  Woodsfield is in the next county over from where I live.   I would really like to go to Daffin's someday since I am a chocoholic!  :)   I would probably go crazy there.

I still think you should drive up my way and let me take you shopping! If you want some really great deals on name brand shoes, the Reyer's outlet shoe store is the place to go!
