Several years ago the community of Fort Benton started a Charm Trail with individual businesses selling a charm that identified their building, what they sold, or a local attraction. It’s a great way to encourage people to visit the different stores and businesses.
I have a Fort Benton charm bracelet with eight local charms – one in the shape of Montana with Fort Benton written on it, a canoe, a tepee, the Grand Union Hotel, a dog (forever faithful Shep), a cowboy boot, the original blockhouse at Old Fort Benton and a cowboy on a bucking horse.
Well, now I can collect Christmas (or ‘winter”) charms for a new bracelet!
Mittens, snowflakes, a reindeer, a Christmas stocking, an evergreen tree and more can all be purchased to personalize your new jewelry.
I’m ready for another charm bracelet!
