The Extra Ingredient has been a Friendly Center institution since Art and Martha Nading opened it in 1985. The two of them work so hard to keep their store filled with all of the kitchen and tabletop items that you need to make your house a home. We stopped in today and marveled at how hard Art and Martha were working to help customers find just the perfect gifts.
The above photo features the display of Christmas plates in the front of the store. Santa would be mighty happy to find cookies on one of these fine plates and platters. As always, shoppers had fresh coffee waiting for them, too. Nothing beats a store with a local proprietor on site. This store is so pretty, yet full of functional items for the house. Today is "X" Day on ABC Wednesday and, for our Alphabet Series, we're saying that "X" is for The X-tra Ingredient, especially at Xmas!
