About Us

a la Carte has been a part of Erie’s history for over 40 years. Nancy Walker of Erie originally opened the business in 1971 with a focus on stationary and needlepoint items. Our present location at the Colony Plaza has been home to the store for thirty years.

Nancy Walker’s four daughters- and even her granddaughter- have each worked at the store throughout its history; Daughter Mimi Sherwin has managed the store for the last 15 years.

a la Carte has gifts everyone will enjoy – including yourself!  Vera Bradley, Trollbeads, Chamilia and SO much more…Bridal Registry, Wedding Invitations, works by Erie artists, Presque Isle maps pictured on unique gifts.  Stop in to see our wonderful and reasonably priced selections!
