As popular as the storefront has been, shoppers have been quick to contact Jill regarding Facebook posts while online window-shop- ping as well. One of her popular items that she has had requests for reorder was a clock made out of awine barrel. It was sold via Facebook, packed up, and shipped to Ne- braska. She hopes to get an online shop up and running soon, but as she continues to navigate the retail world she is constantly learning what is next for her developing Birch House brand. "It's been better than I ever could have imagined," she said. On Saturday, Dec. 2 Jill's style will be on full display both in her store and at home. As a participant in the 2017 Park River P.E.O.

Though she will not partici- pating in the tour herself that day, those looking to bend her hear about her design tastes will be able to find her manning the shop at Birch House from noon to 4 p.m. She is looking forward to the holiday season as shoppers find their own inspiration right here on Park River's main street.

It happens when the arteries that carry blood to the legs and feet become narrowed or clogged over the years with fatty deposits or plaque, causing poor circula- tion. But you also need to be aware that because PAD is a systemic disease, people that have it are also much more likely to have clogged arteries in other areas of the body like the heart, neck and brain, which greatly increase the risks of heart attack or stroke. Few Symptoms Unfortunately, PAD goes un- diagnosed and untreated way too often because most people that have it experience few, if any Other possible symptoms to, be aware of include leg numbness or weakness, coldness or skin color changes in the lower legs and feet, or ulcers or sores on the legs or feet that don't heal.
