Limited number of real maple syrup "tarquinas" for sale

Anyone who has frequented the JW Merc roadside booth in Garibaldi (or the Fremont Sunday Market) over the years will recognize the glass "tarquina" - style jars filled with real maple syrup from Vermont.
Though there have been two sizes historically we are just down to six ONLY of the smaller of the two (100 ml.) - available in the light/delicate grade (which was once called "fancy" back in the day). Since they would likely sell quickly at the booth this weekend I wanted to give JW Merc internet followers/supporters a chance to buy one if they want - $7.00 each.
Price does NOT include shipping - and it would make sense to add some other things to an order if it's going out via common carrier. If you live in Tillamook County this isn't as pertinent since we would probably be able to meet up some other way.
Please click on the PayPal link below (cut/paste in your browser if need be) And YES - if you don't have a PayPal account yet, you'll have to set one up (which is quick/easy and oh-so-secure - for the good of all of us...)

You can call/text the cell if you have questions: 208-424-0042. I also take e-mail at:

Three different views of the JW Merc's new retail room at the Port of Tillamook Bay ("Sweet 430")

It's March - 2016 and there IS light at the end of the storms...

Wow - have we seen some rain out here on the north Oregon coast! JW Merc has spent more time 'undercover' this winter than we'd like to admit - however we didn't squander the opportunity - rather embraced it and opened a new retail room next to our regular office at the Port of Tillamook Bay (4000 Blimp Blvd. - Ste. # 430, Tillamook, Oregon 97141) - we affectionately call it "Sweet 430" and have jam-packed it full of the wide array of northwest-local raw honeys, real maple syrup/sugar products from Vermont, Portland's Hot Lips soda (of course) and many other specialty food/gift ideas from Idaho, Oregon and Washington.
Sweet 430 is open every Wednesday from at least 10-4 and other times by appointment. We are still setting up our roadside booth at the south end of Garibaldi (225 Garibaldi Avenue) every Friday and Saturday from at least 11-4 (fair weather days tend to stretch those hours out). This "pop-up" version of JW Merc is kind of an "express" station for those folks living/working in Bay City north to Clatsop County.
Delivery is ALWAYS an option within Tillamook, Clatsop and Multnomah counties and of course we're shipping to all 50 states in the U.S.
