Phil's Saw Shop in Florence Oregon now offers knife sharpening! I have been taking my kitchen knives to Eugene Oregon an hour drive each way and then returning a few days later to pick them up. That translates into 260 miles round trip to complete the project. The other day I was in to get my chain saw serviced and noticed a little card board sign about the knife sharpening service. It turns out one of the younger kids does this. I left them and got a call back a couple hours later that they were ready to be picked up! As I work at Coldwell Banker Coast Real Estate 3 blocks away this is an excellent situation for me! Did I mention they came back SHARPER than SHARP! Phils Saw shop is located at 399 Nopal accross the street from Sterling Savings Bank the phone nomber is 541-997-9767 tell ...

What's better than the build up before Christmas? The scent of evergreens are lingering in the air, kids are bundling up a little more at their bus stops and holiday commercials are already in full swing. But what sets Florence apart is our annual tree lighting festival to welcome the holiday season.   Hundreds gather at the Gazebo Park in Old Town and kids have a certain sparkle in their eyes. They know what's soon coming down the lane and into their homes on Christmas Eve. Florence gets us all in the mood on December 3rd at 4:30pm for the Annual Florence Community Christmas Tree Lighting Celebration.  A beautiful evergreen tree, donated this year by Sam and Carol Saiia, will be placed in the town center and lit to the hilt with hundreds of glowing colors.   Be sure to arrive on time ...

You know you've see it. That shiny 1960 red corvette front fender in their ActiveRain profile belongs to none other than Rob Shepherd with Coldwell Banker Oregon Coast Realty. If you haven't met Rob yet, you really should get to know him. He is such a fun-loving and easy going guy yet really knows his stuff when it comes to Florence Oregon Real Estate. Rob is a client of mine and I have to brag a little bit on him because I was so impressed. Even though I have been to the Oregon Coast more times than I can count, Rob sent me maps, local newspapers, lists of events, business cards and lots of amazing local information. I couldn't have asked for a better resource for his area. I have gone through all this information and learned so much I never knew about the Oregon Coast and Florence. Al...

We have a new restaurant and a new winner! The Maple Street Grille located at 165 Maple Street in Florence Oregon! I went there last night and had the best Pot Roast I have ever had in my 55 years. I asked the owner "what the best seller was"? Pot Roast was the answer. It currently is selling at $15. All the food appears to be hand crafted plate by plate. Next time I am going to try the Mac and Cheese made with Bleu Cheese. If you are coming to Florence Oregon on the coast, try  The Maple Street Grille for Supper as they are open 4-10 p.m.  closed Sundays. Call for more info  541-997-9811 Tell them Rob from Coldwell Banker Real Estate sent you!
