A Pear Tree Grows in Dixboro

 

continued

"My goal was to stock the store with things that are unusual, different, and not terribly expensive. I think I've managed to do that." As small as the shop is, it's a mini-department store: in addition to gifts she carries some housewares, like clocks, bowls, and throws; women's clothing and accessories; and, in a nod to all the animal adoption that occurs at the Humane Society down the road, pet gifts, like local ceramic artist Lilli Blackburn's dog- and cat-decorated pieces. "She'll do custom work too, from photographs," McCormick says. "There's weddings taking place down the road. There's the church with all its weddings and baptisms and christenings. People want gifts. I think I'm in a good location."

Pear Tree Gift Shop, 5153 Plymouth Rd., 585-5494. Mon.-Sat. 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Closed Sun.    (end of article)
