Special to the Reporter

This Saturday is the time to come to the country to shop and explore on the Glen Rose Meander.

The Meander is a group of cottage industries that welcome visitors to artists' and crafters' homes and businesses the third Saturday of each month.

Log Home Soaps offers handmade soaps and lotions. Margaret Drake of Margaret Drake Studio exhibits and sells sculptures and fine art inspired by her love of horses. Rhineland Farms will be open selling farm fresh eggs and goat milk cheese and welcomes visitors to check out their farm. Their blackberries soon will be ready for picking!

Don't miss the beautiful handcrafted jewelry from Holley's Creations. Grace Holley-Stewart is a one-of-a-kind artist when it comes to creativity in her gold and silver rings, necklaces and bracelets.

Paluxy River Trading Co. on the square is a place to get wildlife and nature photography, unique cards and calendars, plus dinosaur and Glen Rose T-shirts.

Do you like fossils and all kinds of rocks? Stop by to visit The Stone Hut and the owner Morris Bussey if you want to meet a real character.

River Glen Studio is a unique boutique garden center. Karen Richardson's business is just off the downtown square on Barnard Street.

That's just a sampling of what's available on the Meander. Check out www.glenrosetexas.net, the Glen Rose Convention and Visitors Bureau's site, and then click on the Meander's colorful rack card for a map. If you need any help, stop by the Visitors Center or call 817-800-5616.

Log Home Soaps' colorful sign will be on U.S. Highway 67 and at the entrance to its driveway to help make it easy to find the log home. The business is about six miles outside Glen Rose.
