Prom Night!

After a disappointing rainout last weekend, the Collierville High School Prom comes to the square this Saturday night. We understand that access to the surrounding businesses (including ours) will be restricted after the prom starts. So we will stick to our normal hours of 8 am to 9 pm Saturday. Of course everyone is welcome to stop in before the prom even if you just want to 'check us out'. We hope you will be back another time if not.

Dont forget we will have live music from 6 - 8 pm!

Also note that some of the streets around the square will be blocked off so we suggest parking at the Walnut Street or Washington Street public lots.

Have fun at the party and be safe!

Live Music Saturday evening.

Lee Cagle on the mountain dulcimer and Betty Dawson on the hammered dulcimer have joined forces to form the duo Butterfly Gap. Together, Lee and Betty perform a mixture of traditional folk and Celtic music.

Butterfly Gap will be performing at Square Beans Coffee this Saturday (May 17) from 6 pm to 8 pm. Please come in and enjoy this special musical treat from two very well respected performers in their genre.

Collierville High School Jazz Band

This 14 piece ensemble of very talented young musicians will entertain all this Friday evening. They will perform a variety of jazz standards and we always encourage everyone to come out and support Collierville's finest local talent!

5 Local Artists Featured!

Our shop is becoming a great place for local artists to display their art. Currently we have 5 people displaying their paintings or photography:

1. Katie Broer. Katie's display of Bessie Dean Parr's photos from the early 1900's has been a hit since the day we opened. Images of the town square and Collierville residents (including a cute little 4 year old Elizabeth Parr) can be seen on our wall an in Katie's book which is for sale at the counter.

2. Arunima Srivastava. Arunima is a native of India, residing in the U.S. since 1997 and Collierville resident sine 2006. With a B.S. in Geology and M.A. in Communication media for Children. She has worked in newspaper, radio, television and the film industry. She takes her inspiration from nature and her native culture for her art.

3. Shane Cato. Shane is displaying several of his photos take around the square and throughout the mid-south. We also have some great postcards of his images available for sale.

4. James Richardson. We met James at the Fair on the Square last weekend and were impressed by his large scale, colorful, nature and travel prints. He was gracious enough to allow us to hang a few in our shop (more to come). He has been photographing and writing about travel destinations for many years and has many excellent prints available on his website at www.jdrichardson.com.

5. Walt Geminn. I have some of my own favorite prints on display as well. These are some photo's taken on various outings that Kelli and I have taken over the years. They hold some great memories for me and I hope you like them as well.

Bikers with a heart! (who knew?)

My friend Danny Banks visited us this weekend. He is a member of the Blues City Victory Riders. They had a booth set up at the fair to raise money for St. Judes selling Disciple's Crosses. He says their goal is to ride to St.Judes with 100 crosses and donations for the children. They are off to a great start after this weekend but could really use your help. Purchase one of the crosses (I did) or make a donation (we have forms in the shop).
