Phoenixville Hospital Auxilliary Hosting Annual Holiday Bazaar

On Sunday, Nov. 16, Phoenixville Hospital Auxiliary will be hosting their annual Holiday Bazaar. The event, which features "close to 30 crafters, baked goods, 50/50 tickets, raffle items and a visit by Santa Claus" will be held from 10am-3pm at Solomon's Porch on the campus of Valley Forge Christian College.

From today's Phoenix:
---
"Our crafters will offer a wide variety of items such as jewelry and woodwork gifts, to hand-sewn and crocheted selections," said (Deb)Francis. "Some of the crafters we have coming in are local and some as far as New Jersey and Philadelphia."

Several crafters returning from last year include Joe Pennypacker, who makes cutting boards out of corian, and Ernie Coccia, who does work working and builds birdhouses.
...
"We're also going to have a classy flea market as well. This is where members of the auxiliary bring in their 'white elephants' — those items that are new but don't serve a useful purpose to those who own it but could assist others. We think it'll be a nice affair."

Francis said that tickets will be sold for two cash prizes.

"First prize is $500 cash, and second prize is $150," she said.

The jolly man from the North Pole, Santa Claus, will be on hand for children to have their picture taken free of charge.

Several Local Businesses Closing Up Shop

Over the next couple of months, three local businesses will be closing their doors.

On Saturday, February 16th, Polka Dots will be closing their store at 246 Bridge Street. The shop, a women's clothing boutique, opened nearly two and a half years ago but has recently found business slow.

Originally, (owner Susan) Randels said that the store was doing well, but that the momentum could not keep up.

"The things that sold in Paoli didn't sell in Phoenixville," she said, adding that some customers thought that the store was too expensive or the sizing did not go high enough (size 12 being the highest size sold). "We tried everything."

Randels also said that parking was an issue for many of her customers who could either not find spaces or did not feel safe parking behind the store.

Polka Dots remains open until the 16th, with hours on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. The phone number is 610-935-5914. Clothing and shoes are bei…

Local Business Spotlight: The Fenix

As mentioned a couple of months back, Phoenixville will soon be home to a premium martini and whiskey bar. Named The Fenix, it is owned by the owners of Molly Maguire's and will be located right next door to Molly's at 193 Bridge Stret.

The Fenix hopes to have a soft opening tonight or tomorrow with a grand opening coming in September. I sent an email into General Manager Michael Matarazzo who had this to say regarding the new venture:

Public meeting to discuss future of Melchiorre Park scheduled for Nov. 29th

On Thursday, November 29th, the Borough is holding a 'brainstorming session' in which plans for Melchiorre Park will be discussed with its park planning consultants. The event will be held at the High School and will begin 7pm.

For those of you who do not know about Melchiorre Park (of which I am included, even though I apparently live across the street from it), it is a 23 acre park located south of High Street on the land between it and French Creek. It appears, based on the drawing on the Borough home page, to be the land that is next to Westridge Village and across the street from the new Northridge Village community.

As part of the meeting, the consultants will 'provide a brief background of the project and present a pre-final master plan for the park'.
