May 8 - can you join us?

Hello Friends,

We’d like to invite you to a gathering next Saturday, May 8 at 4:00 in the afternoon at Hazel Tree Interiors (formerly Norka Futon, at 143 West Market Street in Akron.)

Beverages, goodies and an eclectic group of people will be provided.

The purpose of this gathering is to open our doors (and our minds, really) to anyone who has heard about the store we are creating and that thinks they may have something to say, sell or contribute in some way to the store. To quote Patti Digh, “An artistic barn raising.”

We’ll talk about our plans, we’ll answer questions, we’ll take suggestions, we’ll open up about what we’re on the search for, but maybe most importantly- we want to allow a space for all the artists and artisans and like-minded people around town to have a chance to meet each other and make their own connections. We’re finding there are a lot of people who are doing this kind of work…and we want to be the place where you can find what or who you need. It’s all about sharing, so come on down and give or take.

Please join us if you can. We hope to see you.

Karen and Jon of Hazel Tree

P.S. Feel free to call Karen prior to Saturday with any advice (please and thank you!) or questions you may have: 330.414.3167

P.P.S. Grand opening will be 7/10/10 – Save the date!
