Metro Pulse Finds Use in "Downtown Wishing Tree"

The Flower Pot on Gay Street is skipping the red and going pure green for its Christmas window this year. Staffers have turned their design talents to an environmentally conscious display of recycled vase boxes wrapped in old newspapers and formed into a "downtown wishing tree." The idea is for people to write a wish for downtown Knoxville to hang from the tree. Metro Pulse already had a wish granted: the wrapping is old Metro Pulses, and some of them even look like they were read first.
