Ever wonder how the Et Cetera Shop started? Here's the answer

Former Bluffton resident Lois Kreider spoke during the Et Cetera Shop's 40th anniversary volunteer banquet in late April. Here are her remarks, which include the retelling of how the Et Cetera Shop in downtown Bluffton came to be. 

By Lois Kreider

Can it be—40 years? 

But to recall how it all began, we need to go back even farther than 40 years.

In 1961 our family spent a year in Akron, Pa . Robert was on sabbatical and traveling to set up the Teachers Abroad Program (TAP). I was there with five children—age six months to 4th grade.
