Our August morning networking event was held in the Independence Hill neighborhood at Emily George's Pointe Foure Vintage Boutique. Retail therapy was included!

Pointe Foure is a vintage clothing, accessories and home goods boutique. Emily told us the pieces you find in the shop are locally sourced vintage pieces that have withheld time, most items belonging to their original owners between the 1920's to 1990's. Totally charming!

A few things we learned from our members in attendance over coffee:

  • Andrea Labowski, Andrea's Interior Design Gallery, says her job is to help people love where they live.
  • GDS - Dumpster Services and DRS of Erie partner to take the stress off your shoulders in home restoration working directly with adjusters and insurance agents to assure a smooth restoration transition. 
  • Dan Wingerter of Paragon Packaging Products noted his grandfather used to own Krug's Shoe's which was across the street from Pointe Foure and will soon open as a new coffee shop. He also told us a bit about Paragon and that it is the oldest running box manufacturer in NWPA, was founded in 1970, and that the company offers everything packaging as well as customized creations in all sizes.
