The Humane Society Phoenixville And The Art Deska Gallery Celebrating Their First Anniversary This Weekend

This first Friday of October will be a very special first Friday for the Humane Society Phoenixville & The Art Deska Gallery. Not only will the Humane Society Phoenixville & The Art Deska Gallerry be participating in the Borough of Phoenixville’s regular First Friday festivities, but it will also be commemorating its first anniversary in the borough.

The First Friday event, October 3, 2014 from 6 – 8 p.m. will feature renowned artist and creator of Humane Pennsylvania’s omnipresent Spike & Tilly logos Adrienne Trafford as well as Phoenixville Mayor Michael J. Speck. In addition, and as a special thank you to the Humane Society Phoenixville’s new friends in the community and in order to commemorate the 1st anniversary, all cat adoptions will be just one dollar ($1) all weekend long from October 3, 2014 through October 5, 2014.

“The Phoenixville community has been great for us to be a part of and has been really supportive. We are excited to build on the relationships we’ve started and look forward to what the coming years will bring,” stated Karel Minor, President and CEO of the Humane Society Phoenixville, a Humane Pennsylvania partner.

Since October 4, 2013, when the Humane Society Phoenixville officially unlocked its doors, the organization has been an ever-growing presence in the northern Chester County community. Over the course of the year, the Humane Society Phoenixville has served the area through its one-of-a-kind cat adoption center, pet retail boutique and art gallery. Together, hundreds of cats and dogs have been helped either through adoption or through our free vaccine and microchip clinics. The Art Deska Gallery has also featured over a dozen local and nationally renowned artists and there was one awesome sold out Pints for Pups event with 200 supporters and imbibers.

Light refreshments will be served from 6 – 8 p.m. on Friday, October 3, 2014 as well as throughout the day on Saturday, October 4, 2014 during the Borough of Phoenixville’s Food Festival on Main Street. Please join us!

Yesterday, Phoenixville's newest cafe opened. La Crêperie Café Bis, located at the corner of Bridge and Gay Streets at the base of the Gay St. Bridge, opened its doors at 11am. As you can probably guess by its name, La Crêperie features both sweet and savory crêpes which, owner Marietou Fanny says, are made with only fresh ingredients. Fanny also owns a restaurant in Center City in Philadelphia called La Crêperie Café, which has been open for nine years.

La Crêperie is open seven days a week. Hours are Monday-Friday from 11am-10pm, Saturday 11am-11pm and Sunday from 10am-7pm.

Best of luck to Marietou and her staff!

Several Local Businesses Closing Up Shop

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."
