  • Photo CenterNW: Process. Marking the 175th anniversary of the announcement of photography and its myriad forms in the 21st century, Process is a celebration of photographic works that explore unique methodologies and question how we define photography today.

(Discount is limited to swapping one pair of shoes per customer)OR Write down your tale of woe: “I was so broke I…” And be entered in a drawing for a free pair of Tretorn’s! Maybe you don’t have a fancy car, but a good pair of shoes can easily take you all the places you want to go. At Edie’s we believe the right shoes can get you comfortably through a day on your feet and still be an expression of your personal style. Spruce up your digs with a beautiful piece of art.
