Tin Pan Alley owners Doug Cairn, Toni Prather and Marty Jenson celebrated 5 years in business with a party on Saturday November 25th.

On Saturday November 25, 2017, Doug Cains, Toni Prather and Marty Jenson, owners of Tin Pan Alley, held a five year anniversary party complete with sausage and peppers (Toni’s recipe) along with other appetizers and cake. There was 10% off every store item of which shoppers were taking advantage.

Tin Pan is a potpourri of all kinds of things including antiques, unique handmade items, fine jewelry as well as costume, cabin decor, boutique with purses, hats and more, signs, beading supplies, candy … you name it. If you like to give truly one of a kind gifts, this is your store.

Toni told me, “TPA does everything first class.” Well, they certainly did a great job on the party and on store design! It’s an eclectic mix of old and new with a creative flair that makes it feel as if it’s been there a lot longer than five years!

Doug wanted to be sure to thank everyone for five great years. Tin Pan sometimes serves as more of a meeting place for coffee and conversation which is absolutely part of it’s charm. Marty shared, “It’s a small world – not my favorite ride, but a great quote,” as he was visiting with a lady whose cabin he’d built years ago.


Tin Pan Alley also sponsors the Senior tree to help supply gifts to those who live alone and who may need a little cheer at Christmas. It goes through December 15th so go in and pick up your tag if you’re interested in helping out.

Senior Tree gives the opportunity for residents to purchase a gift for one of our local seniors who may need a little bit of love at Christmas. Gifts need to be returned to Tin Pan Alley by Dec. 15th.

Stop by Tin Pan Alley for a chat, a coffee and to pick up that special gift this holiday season.
