Summer is FINALLY here, and everything is in full bloom!
Without a doubt though, the most beautiful thing we have "growing" is our Tree of Love outside the store.
Inspired by the Love Lock walls of Paris, you can come and put a lock permanently in two locations at our store. There is a wall area outside the door, and a beautiful tree right on West Eighth Street. The wall is a dedication to a dear friend we miss.
The tree was created by local artisan Ben Davis of Gene Davis Sales & Service from 100% recycled steel. As you can see, it's a work of art!
We "planted" this tree as a celebration of our great community - a place where you can commemorate an event, loved one, or special moment. The locks are permanent and won't be removed, and we hope we can fill up both spaces!
There is no cost or catch to putting a lock on the wall or tree - come by anytime and bring your own lock. If you need a lock, they're available in the store for a $10 donation that will go 100% to SafeNet, Erie's domestic violence shelter. We hope everyone will be encouraged to be a part of this project and celebrate the city and people we love!
