Local Business Spotlight: All Things Primitive

Opening next Friday, April 3rd, All Things Primitive is Around Phoenixville's most recent Local Business Spotlight. Owner Barbara Jarrett writes the following:

My little shop is called All Things Primitive. The Grand Opening is slated for April 3rd, on First Friday. We will have drawings for items from the store all weekend. We will feature Country/Primitive home decor items. I am going to be located at 26 Gay Street. My hours will be Fridays, 5-9; Saturdays, 9-5; Sundays 12-5. Some of the items we will be carrying will be Candles, Pottery, Samplers, Table Runners, Wreaths, Baskets. Generally anything that you see in the big country/primitive stores, you will see here. We will have Fall open houses and Christmas open houses. I have been dealing in primitive craft items at craft shows for the last 2 years. My entry into this business was because people were always asking if I had a website or store. My prices were always a big hit with people! If anyone in the Phoenixville area traveled to the Country Gatherings store on Route 23 and were disappointed when the owner retired, stop in to see us!

When I started looking for a place to rent, I really didn't have a location in mind, however, when I found this storefront, everyone started telling me that Phoenixville was the "happening place."


Best of luck to Barbara!

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'. Source: Phoenixville Borough Website

Local Baker Wins on Netflix Sugar Rush

Peri Anderson, owner of Brooklyn Girl Bakery , was part of a team that won the most recent episode of Sugar Rush on Netflix. I reached out to Peri to learn a little more about her bakery: I started out taking a recreational cake decorating class with my mom when I was still living in NY. I loved it and moved to PA to be with my boyfriend (now husband), where I began interning for a bakery in Chestnut Hill. Over the course of 7 years I worked my way up from intern to pastry chef until I decided to leave in 2012. I do all of my baking in our home kitchen which is licensed and insured by the Dept. of Agriculture. Initially, I wanted to focus on wedding cakes so I immediately started contacting wedding venues in the area to see if they would include me a wedding cake vendor in their packages. I currently work with over 10 venues and several caterers in the area. While wedding cakes are my main focus, I also make cakes and cookie favors for all occasions. While I don’t have a retail loca
