Artsy Fartsy! Visit Mr. Schlitz today. Sit in THE BIG CHAIR and say, “I’m acting like Lily Tomlin!”

Below is an interview with Mr. Brian Schlitz in the Lake Worth CRA’s newsletter Up Front, the article is titled, “Business Highlight: Artsy Fartsy Décor & More”.

Mr. Schlitz invited me a few weeks ago to come visit and take a seat on “The Big Chair”. So I hopped on down to our Downtown and met and talked with Brian for a bit and then he asked me to take a seat in the big, REALLY BIG, red Adirondack chair in front of his store. To say I was honored is an understatement.

To put the chair in perspective, my shoes are size 13 and Yours Truly is 6′5″:

Meet Wes! This photo reminds me of the character Edith Ann, played by Lily Tomlin on Laugh-In in the 60’s.

To read the entire CRA newsletter use this link for news about:
  • New construction on Dixie Hwy.
  • Happenings in the Tropical Ridge and Royal Poinciana neighborhoods.
  • Grand opening of the Arts Studio Cafe.
  • More photos from the City’s Street Painting Festival last February.
  • Upcoming exhibits and events and more.
Here are excerpts from the interview with Mr. Schlitz:

Tell us about yourself?
I was born and raised in Staten Island, New York. I came from a large family; my brothers, sister and I longed for a warmer climate and Florida was the answer. After originally making Boca Raton home, I stumbled upon this one of a kind, close knit and charming town of Lake Worth.
What made you choose Lake Worth?
Lake Worth is a very artsy, charming town and the perfect place for a specialized, fun décor store. The locals and tourists, alike, love our pieces and feel right at home.
What do you like best about having your business within the City of Lake Worth?
Lake Worth’s top business assets are the public officials in place, the downtown (two downtown streets running east/west which allows for double the amount of walkability and opportunity), the beach casino and the artistic, quaint and close knit feel that makes Lake Worth so unique.

Thank You for choosing our little City of Lake Worth!

I was downtown Friday and stopped by and told him Wes is making him a star. He seems like a great guy. He's quite happy that he met you Wes! I hope he does well.
