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!

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...
