UPDATE -- SATURDAY NIGHT: DRESSER HAS BEEN RETURNED. From Lisa Hess Marks: Pine Cone Mercantile would like to thank everyone for the outpouring of support for the missing dresser. Someone did come forward who thought it was a "free" item. It has been returned. Thanks again to a great community for your "shares" and your concerns! Edward Marks and Lisa Hess-Marks/ Pine Cone Mercantile & North Woods Bread Co.
OUR EARLIER REPORT:Lisa Hess Marks, owner of Pinecone Mercantile, needs your help. A four draw rustic style oak dresser (above) -- waiting for customer pick up outside her store -- has been taken. This happened between 12 pm - 1 pm Saturday From Lisa:
"Hello Schroon Lake Community. I would really appreciate your help. Pine Cone Mercantile placed an antique dresser outside the shop this morning... and it has "walked away". This dresser was on its way to a new customer's home... and it is truly unfortunate.
The dresser was last seen outside Pinecone Mercantile, right in front of the Direct TV store.
We truly hope this was an honest mistake: someone thinking this piece was "up for grabs" on the sidewalk, and not something more sinister. This is not the Schroon Lake all of us who treasure this piece of paradise, have come to know and love.
