Special thanks go to my nephew Clint Baxter for helping set up my store! Also many thanks to the wonderful artistic talents of my brother Mike Baxter! He shines as a graphic artist! He designed most of the graphic presentations in my store. He painted features like Palmetto and the Beach Banner, and added original graphics. He would consider helping others with artistic graphic presentations. Just contact me through the Q&A section of my store and I will pass along the information! Many thanks and much love Mike & Clint!
