This is Fred Ball for Zions Bank, speaking on business.
The Greater Avenues Street Fair takes place this Saturday from 9 a.m. until 7 p.m. on a blocked off section of South Temple, between 500 East and 680 East. The strategic location gives fair attendees the chance to rediscover the street's quaint retail shops and take free tours through historic homes and buildings, such as the Governor's Mansion and the seldom-opened Masonic Temple.
While you're there, be sure to visit Aimee's Floral Tapestry. Owner Kathy Van Orden opened her store, on 754 East and South Temple, seven years ago. Since then, she's offered customers an assortment of seasonal gifts, cards, candles, plants and baby items.
Oh, and don't forget the flowers! It's the store's unusual selection of rare and exotic flowers, says Kathy, that sets it apart from other floral shops. According to Kathy, Aimee's Floral Tapestry caters to people looking for unique arrangements that you won't find elsewhere. And the best part? They can be delivered to anywhere in the city. Orders can be placed over the phone, or on the store's Web site.
The same building is also home to Michael Berry Custom Framing. As Michael would tell you, a special work of art or photograph can't be framed in just anything. At Michael Berry Custom Framing, you can have your frames designed for a specific picture, painting or whatever else it is that you need framed. Michael will even travel to a customer's home so that he can match the frame to its future surroundings.
During the fair on Saturday, Michael is putting on what he calls a "Utah Antique Print Show." Prints taken from Harper's Weekly magazine, the London Times, Picturesque America and other 19th Century magazines, depicting scenes from Utah, will be on display and for sell in his store.
