When The Washington Post visited the Slivers, it seemed to have an unexpected destination.
In the basement of the small business that opened in 2013, a collection of shelves were lined with bottles of wine and bottles of beer.
On a wall, a pair of silver-edged scissors was clutched in one hand and a small, wooden box was held in the other.
On the wall behind the scissors was a picture of a small boy, wearing a shirt with a cross on it, wearing glasses with the word “Sliver” carved in them.
This boy had been the inspiration for a young woman who had become the co-founder of Slivers Wine Shop in the summer of 2017.
A friend introduced the young woman to Slivers co-owner Amy Lee.
She was the cofounder of the popular Slivers restaurant in the Slingshot, a former pizza joint that opened up in the spring of 2016.
The Slivers are a family-owned and operated business in Jasper, Texas.
But in 2016, the restaurant was one of the first to open in the small town of Sliver Lakes.
Lee told The Post that the Slivens had been struggling financially.
She had just sold the restaurant for $10,000, but when the Slives started to open, they found themselves with a surplus of cash and could no longer keep up with their food service costs.
They also had a need for fresh, seasonal produce and other fresh foods.
The kitchen had been closed and a large part of the operation had been converted into a food pantry.
“It was just so hard to keep the business going,” Lee said.
Lee, a mother of three who grew up in nearby Jasper, told The Washington State Journal that she and her husband had spent a lot of time at Slivers to see what was going on.
“I’d go back there every now and then and we’d sit there and talk to customers and it was like family,” Lee told the Journal.
“We had a lot planned for our business,” Lee continued. “
“There were going to be a lot more people there. “
We had a lot planned for our business,” Lee continued.
“There were going to be a lot more people there.
It was going to have a lot less people eating here.
“So, it’s going to really change the way that I see the food and how I make it.” “
In my eyes, the people that come here are the best customers and the people who stay are the most loyal customers,” she added.

The first Sliver was born in Sliver Springs, where Lee’s parents lived before moving to Jasper.
They owned a local restaurant and moved to the Slive in 1997.
Lee said she was initially worried about the new owners’ expectations.
But after a couple months, Lee and her family found that the business had been a success.
“They loved it, and they really took it to heart and really focused on making sure that they made it the best they could,” Lee recalled.
“As a parent, that’s the most important thing for me.
I wanted the best for my kids.”
Slivers was a small business, but Lee and Lee’s son Todd had grown up loving the restaurant.
“When we opened Slivers in 2017, it just clicked for us,” Lee explained.
“Todd and I are both from the sliver valley, so we had known each other since childhood.
We both had that Southern charm and our kids were all in the same boat.
We’re just really happy to be part of this community and have a family.”
Sliver Lake has had a busy year.
Slivers opened its second location in Slivers’ former pizza restaurant, the Pizza Bar, in March 2018.
In March 2019, Slivers relocated its entire food pantries to the new location.
Sliver Farms opened in Sliven Lakes in January 2020, and Slivers expanded its wine and spirits program in May 2020.
Slivestown has been a popular stop for local residents looking for affordable, delicious, local foods, and The Sliver Hills Wine Company has provided them with a new source of food and wine.
“Our goal is to provide our customers with the freshest, best tasting and best tasting wines, while also supporting local businesses in the Jasper area,” said Sliver Holdings President Steve Deutsch in a statement.
The new Sliver restaurant opened in the Spring of 2019 and has since been featured on local TV and news broadcasts.
Sliven Farms is the only wine business in Sliveston, which is located in Jasper County, and the company serves a number of local restaurants and restaurants in other states.
In May 2020, Sliver Foods announced that it was opening a restaurant in Slives hometown of Sliverson, which has a population of about 20,000 people
