We’ve gone cowboy around here this week! Alleghany 4-H asked us to design and print sponsor signage for new panels that replaced their old wooden show ring.
We printed weather-proof, FRP (fiberglass reinforced plastic) signs with an old-timey embossed leather look. The design features pastel colors that give the leather a stamped and painted look. If cowboys didn’t have gear that looked this cool, they sure should have!
We’re really proud to be able to support the Open Horse Show this weekend co-sponsored by Alleghany County 4-H, Young Riders 4-H Club and Horse Whispers 4-H Club. Gates open Saturday at Alleghany Fairgrounds 7:30 am, registration begins at 8:00 am and the show starts at 9:00 am. For a copy of the program and class list, click here.
If you’ve not seen the Sparta Store’s website lately, you might want to take a look. We’ve recently reworked it and added some new features and products. The Sparta Store is our retail shop located at 3 North Main Street across from the Alleghany County Courthouse here in town.
We’ve got a unique selection of local themed gifts and graphics that will interest the local folks and those passing through. From Alleghany Genealogical-Historical Society books, to area photographs to postcard sets, there should be something for everyone here.
If you’d like to get our new Newsletter that outlines sales and highlights authors, artists and their products, just register by clicking the Log In link in the upper right hand corner of the home page.
Local artists and craftsmen are invited to sell their products at the Sparta Store and online at www.spartastore.com. We are pleased to be able to offer the site as a service to our smaller customers that might not be ready for their own website. If you’re interested, you can find more information here.
