Lisa Landry’s “incubator” adjoining Living & Giving, also known as the PopUp Shop, is courting food customers this Tuesday. From 11 a.m. until 3 p.m., “We are having a pie Pop Up in our PopUp Shop … We’re hosting Amanda Wilbanks and The Southern Baked Pie Co. from Gainesville. Her award-winning carmel pecan pie caught Oprah Winfrey’s eye or rather mouth, and was selected as one of Oprah’s favorite things. Her pie company is booming and we thought we would have a fun event and hopefully sell 50-60 pies. We decided to take a few pre orders and we’ve got over 300 pies coming that are prepaid. This obviously caught their attention so our little event is turning into ‘piemagedon.’ Her cookbook will be available and you’ll be able to sign up for the pie of the month club. We’ll draw a name and that person gets a pie a month for a year.”
Take a few minutes to read about the pie company on the company website. It has been in business since 2012 and now ships nationally. An advisory note: These pies are in the $40 range and higher.
The PopUp Shop is in the Merrill Lynch building across the foyer from Living & Giving.
