corn and blueberries

Around here, seeing corn and blueberries at all the roadside stands is how you know summer is ending. That, and a certain slightly hazy, filtered look to the sunlight. Autumn is coming--but summer is still clinging desperately here, unwilling to let go. I know this via the Tweets of the (unofficial, I'm pretty sure) Grand Rapids Weatherball, which have continually been as follows: "Weatherball green, no change foreseen" and "Weatherball red, warmer weather ahead."

Anyway, here is this week's preview of clothing coming to the shop. The very last piece is something for Oktoberfest!
