McMinnville Love Locks
- Gifts & Specialty Items
McMinnville Love Locks is a dedicated art structure to hold padlocks as an expression of your love to your sweetheart, companion, partner, pet or in memory of someone. This idea is similar to a love lock bridge in Paris! When you toss the key, into the keyhole, you are acknowledging the unbreakable bond of your love (heart keyhole is located on the art piece to collect keys). No one knows for certain when or why this tradition of locking your love started but it is believed to be over 100 years old. The reason locks have appeared at different locations around the world, varies by location. Here in McMinnville we are united together by LOVE for each other, for our community and for the world! This location is different than other love lock locations, where locks are being removed from bridges, here your lock and love will remain FOREVER!
McMinnville Love Locks art piece is located at the Grain Station in McMinnville, Oregon. The Chamber of Commerce Ribbon Cutting Ceremony took place and a Launch Party was held on Tuesday, 2/14/17.
You can purchase a lock at several local businesses: Copy Cats (offers engraving), Oregon Stationers (offers engraving), Judy's Jewels (locks can be taken to Timmreck & McNicol Jewelers for engraving), Elizabeth Chambers Cellar, New to You and Vinum Ferus offer locks that can be taken to Copy Cats, Oregon Stationers or Timmreck & McNicol Jewelers for engraving.
A percentage of sales goes to McMinnville High School Grad Night.
The other piece to this idea is that MHS students are helping to make some items that are being sold.
