Members of the Southampton Township Business Association are busy these days hawking $8 T-shirts. They are not in the clothing business nor are they making a profit on sales. They are really selling an idea. About a year ago, the 50-member association decided to build a gazebo for the park that sits in the historical center of Vincentown. Through the sale of the shirts and other fund-raising events, the association hopes the gazebo will grow from a drawing on a blueprint to a lovely place to rest on a summer's day, said Maryann Lennox, a spokeswoman for the group.

When Sue Stratton opened Sunnybrook Flowers Ltd. in 1985, she thought it was money in the bank. Stratton reasoned that her store would have a good location on Bethlehem Pike in Whitemarsh and that her product - flowers and gardening supplies - would have a good market. But she found out that even suburban gardeners won't buy your flowers if they can't find your store. Stratton told the Whitemarsh Zoning Hearing Board last week that was why she put a 48-square-foot gazebo with her business's name attached to it on the store's front lawn.

Only a few years ago, a blank stare was often the response when the word gazebo was dropped into his conversations, says J. Douglas Jefferys, vice president for marketing at Vixen Hill Manufacturing Co. of Elverson, Chester County. "People used to say, 'What's a gazebo?' " recalled Jefferys, whose company is one of the nation's largest manufacturers of gazebo kits, which Vixen Hill sells throughout the nation and in such foreign points as Japan and Saudi Arabia. "But now most people know what they are. " Behind the rise in recognition is a sharp new surge in popularity for gazebos, which had a heyday in Victorian times, then virtually disappeared except for a few relics in parks and estates.

Ask Audubon High School sophomore Gary Grosmick 2d why he spent more than a year lobbying, fund-raising, designing and building a 12-foot-tall gazebo for a teacher who had died, and the answer is as obvious as slipping on a pair of baggy pants before settling in front of the tube with a pint of ice cream. Because. End of story. Not so, say school administrators and friends who watched Grosmick hunker down for 14 months to keep teacher and mentor James Reed's memory alive.

Coatesville's Municipal Walkway could have a touch of Victorian elegance by the end of the summer with the addition of an old-fashioned gazebo, courtesy of the Coatesville Action Corp. The City Council voted, 7-0, Monday to allow Coatesville Action to construct the open-air structure in the walkway between Main Street and Route 30. The council also voted unanimously to waive the required building permits and fees. Richard Nassau, Coatesville Action executive director, said the donation of the gazebo was part of his organization's effort to beautify Coatesville's central business district.

Narberth Fire Chief John Thomas, a retired computer programmer, was perched on top of a ladder Wednesday afternoon, not fighting a fire, but trying to place a roof beam at just the right angle on the borough's new gazebo. Building inspector William Capoferri stood on the ground below, and shouted instructions. Every sunny afternoon since six weeks ago, volunteers Thomas and Capoferri, as well as Fred Hansell Sr., a retired instrument mechanic for Container Corp. of America, and Borough Councilman Chester C. Tyson 3rd, a retired railroad worker, have been found out on the lawn next to the Narberth Community Library, hammering and sawing, hoping to finish the gazebo in time for the Fourth of July.

The battered stone stairs were fished from the bottom of the Delaware Canal. Concrete was poured into molds for the pillars, carefully reconstructed from shreds of the originals. Intricate Mercer tiles were redone from crinkled turn-of-the-century plans. The work took an entire summer in 1989. When it was done, three decades after the Grundy gazebo was obscured by an ice rink and left to crumble in ruins, the gazebo's dome had risen again. Today it stands as tall as in 1915, the year it was built, and as white as the top of a wedding cake.

A strong wind last week did what Delaware County Councilman Paul G. Mattus would have been forced to do eventually. In a single puff, it knocked down a $5,000 gazebo that had been illegally built in his yard. During a rainstorm April 9, the gazebo collapsed on Mattus' lawn. Just a week earlier, he had built it to protect a recently installed hot tub. The two were a birthday gift for his wife, Valerie, who has a bad back. She had wanted a hot tub for years, said Paul Mattus, who was on a short trip to Florida on the evening the gazebo blew down.

The borough has added a gazebo to Thomas West Park, and it's all ready for the town's Independence Day festivities on July 5. "The mayor has been wanting something like this for years. He's been suggesting it for a long time," Municipal Administrator Richard Burr said. Mayor Charles Owens is eager to see concerts and other events held there. A few churches have already asked if they can hold Easter services in the facility. Westville spent $25,000 to buy and set up the wooden structure, which measures 24 feet in diameter and has a 22-foot-high, three-tiered roof.

Hello there In 2008, Wednesdays were CJ's favorite day of the week. He was a medical case manager at Mazzoni Center, a health center for gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people - the same place Alison did mental-health assessments for those beginning hormone treatment. Usually, CJ and Alison worked in separate buildings. On Wednesdays, they shared an office. CJ would tell Alison he needed to talk about a client, even when he had the needed info. "It was a convenient way to follow her around, like a little puppy," he admits.

AQUEBOGUE, N.Y. - It started with an ad on Craigslist: Free holiday on an organic farm on Long Island, work for your keep, and enjoy wineries and great beaches nearby. The farm would even supply transportation from New York City and bicycles to get around once you arrive. All a friend and I had to do was take the subway to a farmer's market in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn, and a van would pick us up. The entire experience wouldn't cost a penny. I suspected it was all too good to be true.

It was springtime in Camden yesterday, in an Alice-in-Wonderland sort of way. Azaleas and rhododendrons had sprouted on Riverside Drive, where four girls were planting ivy on a large dog and where a stack of musical notes sat by a half-bridge to nowhere. Outside the greenhouses at the Camden Children's Garden, a truck already contained a brightly colored gazebo and the other half of the bridge. Tomorrow it will head for the Pennsylvania Convention Center, where the Philadelphia Flower Show opens next weekend.

Everything today in residential construction revolves around lifestyle. And that has redefined a lot of jobs in the building industry. "Architects have the opportunity to do more than just the housing stock . . . within communities, because what people are coming for has more to do with lifestyle that's offered than with what kind of houses there are there," said Donald F. Evans of the Evans Group Inc. in Orlando, Fla. "Sometimes," he...

On a chilly Wednesday morning three weeks ago, two Lancaster County men started knocking apart a $4,000 chunk of Jenkintown's beloved town-square gazebo and carting it away. They were there to settle a debt. "It had a slate roof, and we couldn't take it all down. That's what we wanted to do," said Chet Beiler, whose Amish Country Gazebos built the new borough centerpiece last summer. The builder, acknowledging that he held the lumber hostage "in a safe place," restored the one-of-a-kind $29,000 gazebo to its former elegance last weekend - barely in time to calm outraged borough leaders, who were urging the Montgomery County prosecutor to file criminal charges, and a detective threatening the park's general contractor with jail.

After more than three years of twists and turns, the Idziks are finally settling into their dream house on the bay - a 7,000-square-foot green-grape-and-mauve-colored honey of a Victorian. Workmen last week were hustling to install floating docks out back and finish up on features of a "smart-house" system, while interior designer Donna Massey arrived with antique chairs and a kneeling stool to give the parlor a final tweak. It was a scene that warmed Ed Idzik's heart as he recalled the saga of the new home.
