silverton: New Community Hub for Silverton, OR - 08/04/12 03:52 AM
 
The historic building is an absolute beauty at the corner of Main and Water in downtown Silverton, OR. Meticulously restored by Moe Salem, this early 1900’s building has been waiting for the perfect business to move in, and last night on a balmy August - First Friday, our community got the first peek at Howard Hinsdale Cellars’ new location for their wine bar and bistro. 
To have an opening on one of Silverton’s busiest nights of the year was a test of endurance, I’m sure. Our town is nearly bursting at the seams with a Summer First Friday, a … (3 comments)

silverton: Things to do in Silverton, Or - Week of July 31-Aug 7, 2012 - 08/01/12 04:08 AM
Homer Davenport Days are here again! This weekend, Silverton celebrates Homer Davenport, an internationally renowned political cartoonist. I have a greater appreciation of the meaning behind this event and the man we celebrate after reading his coming of age memoir, The Country Boy. Highly recommended reading for any Silverton or Willamette Valley resident.
I've always enjoyed this week-end because it becomes a class / family / friend reunion where our townspeople, past and present gather together. And, somehow I've been roped into pushing a Davenport on wheels down Main Street. See you in Silverton!

silverton: How much does $200k buy... - 02/15/12 03:02 AM
 
Getting back to the basics of marketing is a great approach in today's market.  Postcard and email campaigns are making a come back as effective forms of marketing. 
We're seeing a big resurgence in requests for targeted prospecting lists for use in postcard and letter mailings.  After a bit of a hiatus, people are putting this back into their mix of marketing tools. 
What we have NOT seen are the requests for lists of 1,000's of people.  Thank goodness because this was never really a good approach.  (In my opinion...)  For best results, get extremely targeted with your list.   … (1 comments)

A really bad poem about the week ahead in Silverton...  (Apologies for the cussing - it's all in good fun.)

From live music and dining to cooking & photography classes. 
Look for an opportunity to volunteer and get off our a**es.
Create some art or have a hand crafted beer,
Take a trip to Silverton and you'll be grinning, from ear to ear.
