    Yay Fall!

    We’re jumping with Joy at Somewhere Over the Rainbow !We Love Fall, and all that it includes. Pumpkins, gourds and colorful foliage are cause for all the happy feelings.

Not only is it our first July 4th in the new store, but last year, in the midst of the Covid outbreak and having just recently relocated back to…

In the months to come, we at Somewhere Over the Rainbow will address these issues and our views, as well as out abiding commitment to leaving the planet…
