Decorations by The Framing Nook disappeared from a themed display in front of the business on Riverside Drive.

Display met with frosty reception

A local business is hoping someone will bring it flowers — the ones that rightfully belong to it already. Even if the weather would not co-operate, Brian and Janice Rypstra, owners of The Framing Nook, got into the spring spirit a few weeks ago with a themed display in front of their business on Riverside Drive.

A local business is hoping someone will bring it flowers — the ones that rightfully belong to it already.

Even if the weather would not co-operate, Brian and Janice Rypstra, owners of The Framing Nook, got into the spring spirit a few weeks ago with a themed display in front of their business on Riverside Drive.

Festooned with Easter decor, bunny scarecrows, and fake flowers, Brian said the large wagon in front of the business drew a lot of positive comments.

But on April 12, the decor was no more when the couple arrived at work — only the bunny scarecrows remained on the wagon.

Now, the couple is simply hoping that the fake flowers and Easter bunny cutouts will be returned by whoever stole them, no questions asked.

Brian said, if returned, the display will go back up, and that the business will keep putting out its decorations corresponding to the seasons in future despite the setback.
