The Moscow farmer and farmgirl lifestyle guru will celebrate the new retail store in the Plaza Shops next to the Coeur d'Alene Resort with a grand opening Friday from 4 to 6 p.m.

Butters will be there to sign her recently released book, "MaryJane's Outpost: Unleashing Your Inner Wild."

The MaryJanesFarm store, 210 Sherman Ave., will sell organic bedding, towels and table linens. A Vintage Farm Kitchen section will include aprons, kitchenware, candles and soaps, cookbooks and MaryJanesFarm magazines, according to a news release.

Cooking and sewing classes are planned. However, Butters' organic convenience and backpacking foods will not be offered at the store, a spokeswoman says. The food is sold at Huckleberry's Natural Foods in Spokane or online at
