LARK EMPLOYEE PICK: MY FAVORITE ITEM (KEN)

Ken Knox: Bill the Worry Eater

Ken had no problem picking out an item to highlight as his favorite item currently on sale at Lark. “I tend to worry about things a lot, even though I really have no reason to,” says Ken, who not only chose Bill the Worry Eater for his pick, but took one home with him as well. “I love all the Worry Eaters that we sell in the store, but Bill is my favorite, because he’s soft and cuddly, he looks like he’s right out of a Tim Burton movie, and the face he makes is probably closest to the one I imagine myself making whenever I’m up against something I don’t want to deal with, which is often. Don’t judge me!”

LOCAL ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: Erin Brown

She may have settled in the cozy hamlet of Gettysburg, but local artist Erin Brown has a worldly attitude that is reflected in her colorful paintings and greeting cards. A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design (where she majored in illustration), Brown spent some time sketching in the cafés of Rome, Italy before landing a job as a greeting card artist and writer with American Greetings. A decade later, she reconnected with family in South Central Pennsylvania and started her own line of whimsical cards and artwork that fits perfectly with the Lark mentality.

We recently sat down with Erin for a round of Five Questions...
