Malvern, Arkansas Brick Capitol of the World!

Group active since Wed, Dec 28, 2011

I just recently found JustAPinch.com and am so delighted, what a gem! Since I live in a tiny little Arkansas town, finding local friends on the internet is unusual- When I did a quick search to see if any others from Malvern were on here, imagine my surprise to find almost 5 pages of local Malvern, Arkansas friends! Let us join together here, share recipes, and stories and maybe we can get neighborly even on the world wide web :)

While searching for the perfect image to represent Malvern, Arkansas- I was searching images and I thought of the Historic Ritz Theater, wished I had taken a photo of the old building they tore down a few years ago, you remember the one with the CocaCola sign painted on the side, where Mels Diner once stood, and before that many others I'm sure. I am a transplant to Malvern, moved here for the first time in 1999. For me the most iconic picture I can think of is the image as you first come into town of "Petty's Tires and Knives" back before they built that monstrosity of a Wal-Mart Super Center and the new Shopping Plaza growing up all around it. That was my very first impression of Malvern.
My family used to joke about it, "Tires & Knives...Prom Dresses & Movie Rentals... Hammers & Eggs..." To me that's Malvern!

Hammers and Eggs...

Funny thing is you can buy both hammers and farm fresh eggs at the Malvern Hardware Store. :0)

Its not really the same now but when I first moved here in 1999, their was a store that offered movie rentals and prom dresses, and a tanning booth too...

Happy to be here :)

I am very happy to have found this site! I have been using allrecipes.com for my recipes but this site looks "homier" and more fun! I am going to move all my recipes here! I wonder if folks would be interested in a GFCF bakeing project? I am organizing DogWish4Bear! - A Benefit Concert to help my on Sidney "Bear" to get an Autism Service Dog. It's a huge event, I have signed on 7 musical acts to perform. It will be here in our hometown, Malvern, Arkansas on Saturday February the 4th, 2012 at the Malvern Elementary School from 3pm- 9pm. I am feeling stressed about the food portion of the event. As part of the "awareness" portion of the event I want to feature GFCF food, (that is the diet we use for my family) and I just wondered if folks would be willing to make a batch of something and send or mail it like a "care package" to be used at the event? I believe that a good estimate is 300-350 attendees. What a great way to be able to get involved if your unable or in an event that's too far to be able to be there personally!
If you do live locally, I want to let you know that Advance tickets are on sale now for $15 each or 4 for $50 - Memory books and T-Shirts are available for advanced order and the price $34.95 includes one ticket to the event. You can get more information at facebook.com/DogWish4Bear or BearShirt.blogspot.com
Sincerely,

Welcome Friends & Neighbors!

I always do a little search when I find a really cool social networking website that I like, to see if their are others like me to connect with. Since I live in this tiny town of Malvern, Arkansas. I usually almost never see fellow folks from Malvern online. Imagine my surprise when I did a little search and discovered almost 5 pages of folks with Malvern, Arkansas as their hometown! Well with numbers like that I just had to make a group for us. I am a transplant by the way, no family ties here but the ones I'm making now- I hope you won't hold that against me :)
So Nice to Meet Y'all!
