This Bethlehem Pacific vintage crate has been retrofitted into a foot stool with storage. Steel casters were added to make the piece easier to move around. The tufted top is custom upholstery to fit the piece perfectly.
Do you have an orchard box that you would like to convert into a foot stool?
We bought the Diary of Anne Frank at REBEL HEART BOOKS. They brought it in for a special order and our family plans to share the book. Her step-sister is coming to Medford in November 11th and we plan on going to the event. See the Facebook Event
Have you read this book? We’d love to hear your stories below:
Today we toured Jacksonville, Oregon on the trolley and had a great time learning about the history of J’ville. They pointed out many buildings that were built in the mid 1800’s when the gold rush hit Daisy Creek. Once a lawless and ghost town, the buildings have been revitalized and preserved for use today.
Finally, we had lunch and coffee at Good Bean. I never would have thought that street tacos and high-end coffee would go together – but it worked!
Cooperative advertising can be a powerful thing when you have the right message. Downtown merchants came together to promote “Shop Downtown” with a quick and memorable radio spot. Shopdowntown.org is the perfect platform to bring all downtown merchants together to explore cooperative advertising.
ShopDowntown.org has one page per downtown and Southern Oregon Cities have collectively been viewed over 25,000 times. Most views are from people planning a trip or a visit which gives merchants the ability to market their business before a trip is made.
This data shows that our domain will attract clicks from the search results even when there are competitive options. People are looking to shop downtown – in person and online.
Downtown merchants benefit the most because we are promoting their physical locations in town and digitally online.
Direct Traffic From the Discount Card + Search Engine Optimization
As people receive the discount card, they type in the URL of shopdowntown.org to see the participating merchants and potential savings. This action is another signal to the search engines that the domain is healthy, popular and sought after. Search engines reward websites with higher rankings as their domain health improves. Higher rankings equal more traffic.
The most important influence on rankings is when another healthy website links to your website naturally. Over time, these links tell a story that your site is useful, relevant and deserves a healthier rating.
Our theory is to start a global program which will consolidate the domain health to be more effective in transferring that power back to downtown merchant e-commerce websites.
I liken this project to the scene from “Finding Nemo” where all of the fish are caught in the net and Nemo sees a way for all of the fish to swim together…
My vision is to create a page for every downtown in the World (complete), test the traffic patterns in my community (complete) and begin to grow in neighboring communities.
