Gathering Around The Table

At least once a month here at we like to get as many of us as possible together for a fun activity, to eat or just to hang out!  There's something special about doing other things besides working with your co-workers!

l-r (around the table) Austin, Brandon, John, Kristin, Clint, Deb, Candice, Michelle and Cathy

We were able to grab some of our team a few days ago and we headed out to lunch at a local Irish restaurant.  Gathering around a table together makes it easier to catch up on all those fun moments in life!  For instance, Deb and Cathy are both proud military moms.  Their boys are off saving the world! Austin just finished college and Michelle just rejoined our ACOT family!

In the months ahead, we're going to let you get to know a bit more about our team here!  We'll also post more pics of our groovy outings.  In the meantime, check out our About Us page at

Sierra Pacific Crafts Show In SLC!

Last week was a busy one!  A Cherry On Top headed to the Sierra Pacific Crafts show which was held in Salt Lake City, Utah!

This is the first time we've made the journey to the SPC show and we're so glad we did!  Warning - this post will be image heavy.

Salt Lake City is absolutely beautiful!

We LOVE being in Michigan, but there's something special about being able to view these types of skylines everywhere you look!  

As always, the manufacturers did not disappoint with their product offerings for the upcoming releases!

One of our favorite parts of getting to visit our manufacturers is meeting the people we typically chat with via phone or email face to face!

It was also nice to take a bit of time to visit some of the amazing beautiful areas found in Temple Square!  Kristin and I soaked up some of the history and culture found in SLC.
