 More Searcy AR Memories.....Prince Gardner Leather Company?Coming up in a few days is another estate sale being done by my daughter who owns VSmith Estate Sales.  And here she pulls out more great Searcy history.  The pictured items above came from Prince Gardner Leather Company and the leather items were owned by a person who worked there for many years.  My understanding is that when International Shoe Company (located on S Main) closed it became home to a leather company in the building.  Searcy Sleuths may have to give more information on how it operated but by seeing these leather goods, they must have put out some fine leather items.  Notice a name for the men's items on the left, named Prince Gardner and on the right for girls, Princess Gardner.  Interesting, also, is the price ...

 Happy 4th of July! John Cusack, American Actor, Producer, and Screen Writer wrote, spoke, and acted out in many famous movies with some clever lines. One line, "I always liked it when people go back in time to discover things about themselves, like with a 'Christmas Carol' and you're getting a tour of Christmas past, present, and future," shouts out loud, haunting in my brain that now causes me to reflect back on dumb mistakes and stupid things I did when I was young on the 4th of July. Perhaps, you can relate or have stories of your own?

  Phoenix Mart is coming to Arizona. What effect will it have on property values in Arizona City, Eloy, and Casa Grande?   Phoenix Mart is a new 585 acre development that is located on Florence Blvd, about 4 miles East of I10 in Casa Grande, Arizona  Phoenix Mart News Casa Grande is located about 50 miles South of Phoenix on the I10 corridor to Tucson. For decades, some of this area South of the Phoenix Mart site has been vacant land that was sold in small lots many years ago. The purchasers of these lots bought back in the 1960's,70's, and 80's with the yet unfulfilled expectation that this area would be developed and that their land investment would pay off. But, nothing ever happend! Very little has really changed in this area. Although some homes were built during the Arizona real e...

A certificate of entitlement gives you the right to own a vehicle and private registration number solely. Auction for the certificate of entitlement is highly competitive and expensive, but renewal is essential to help you retain ownership of your automobile after your first certificate expires. Certificate of entitlement is legal for a period of 5 to 10 years, and residents in Singapore have to go for renewal bidding after 10 years. Most car owners mostly opt for new car purchases due to the high cost of bidding. There is no compulsive decision on renewing or purchasing a new car but you can choose your preferred option. If you are renewing your certificate of entitlement or going for a new car purchase, it is necessary to weigh all the information.There are some necessary pieces of in...

This past Monday we took a walk through the Carpinteria Salt Marsh Reserve in the evening.  As we were returning, the blue sky and sunlight had turned to gold and lit up these trees.  Another fifteen minutes and the sun would slowly sink into the ocean, creating a magnificent sunset. Wishing you all a wonderful Friday evening and a great weekend ahead!

We have hiked Tumalo Mountain several times, but each has experience been enjoyable. The 4 mile round trip has 1400 foot elevation change, so it is fairly steep going up.  However, once you reach the top, the views of Mt. Bachelor, South Sister, Broken Top, and east toward the Ochocos are fabulous.  During July, the evidence that Mt. Bachelor is a renowned ski area is obvious with the ski runs and maintenance roads visible, but the beauty of the mountain is also easy to see.  Tumalo Mountain is a popular hike and plan on seeing people during your trip up and back. Bring plenty of water and enjoy the experience.Original blog can be read at Bend Premier Real Estate.

Real Estate is going strong here in Lake Arrowhead. In less than 24 hours I had two houses go pending. Some may call this luck, but a lot of hard work goes into getting homes sold fast. From the right listing price to how the home is advertised and staged. Action steps are a key factor in selling a home. Knowing the right places to advertise, and how to market a specific property is key to getting it sold quickly and efficiently. If you are thinking about selling your home, give me a call. I know Lake Arrowhead and the surrounding areas. I live, work and play here. I know how to market homes to all prospective buyers and I market your home in a unique way to engage everyone. My online presence is strong and that is where a homebuyer starts their search. With houses being sold this quick...
