Flower pot thief (thieves?) caught on video.

As you may have heard from visiting the salon recently, or courtesy of the great people at the Phinneywood blog, two of our decorative flower pots were stolen from outside the salon on Wednesday, April 22nd – EARTH DAY, of all days!
Thanks to our gracious neighbors at the Sip n’ Ship, we have obtained video of the theft from their security cameras. The theft of at least one of the pots was boldly executed at around 7:30 pm, and took less than 30 seconds. As you can see in the video, it doesn’t appear to be a teen prank, (which we would have simply laughed about) although it is difficult to tell the age of the thief as he dashes out of what appears to be a Honda or Mazda SUV/crossover and back in again.

We’re not petty people – it’s just a couple of flower pots. But the pots were gifted to us by a customer who moved out of the country, and the flowers that were in them at the time of the theft were thoughtfully planted by one of our stylists, on her own time. We’re just a small business, whose occupants wanted to make our little stretch of sidewalk look nice for our customers and the neighborhood as a whole.

We certainly don’t expect our flowers to magically re-appear, but we won’t be replacing them either. We diligently haul our last remaining flower pot inside each night now, and back out again every morning. We’re certainly not going to do that with more than just the one remaining pot.

If you have any information regarding this incident that you’d like to enlighten us with, feel free to email us at: info@salonmercury.com, or call us at (206) 782-5201.

This is the time for all of our brilliant and talented children to shine and share their talents and creativity for a great cause.

Happy Almost Halloween!

It’s really beginning to look a lot like Fall out there, just in time for all the fun Halloween events.

Just one week from today is the Hunger Goblin Daylight Safe Trick Or Treat – we’ll be handing out candy and checking out all the kids (and adults!) in their super awesome costumes!

Please be aware that Isabella will be handing out candy, and so will not be taking haircut appointments from noon on that day.

Also, please be aware that Sean will not be in the salon on Thursday, October 23rd through Saturday, October 25th, as he will be out of town.

22nd Annual Greenwood Car Show this Saturday!

Don’t forget, this coming Saturday, June the 28th, is the annual Greenwood Car Show.
The show starts at 8 am and ends at 4 pm, but the street closes early (5 am) and doesn’t open back up until late (7 pm). You can cross Greenwood at 85th and 80th, but otherwise, there’s no driving on our street, just walking.

While the salon will technically be open, please keep in mind that some of the stylists may not be working for part or all of the day. The car show is a lot of fun, and has lots of things to do besides look at cars, including a pancake breakfast, live music and a kid’s zone, with a bouncy slide and pony rides.
Have fun everyone!
