Greetings Fellow Travelers!
Happy Beltane! It seems like we just celebrated Ostara, and now here it is Beltane already! There are some fun things ahead in May. Here is what we have planned:
Saturday, May 2nd at 6:00 p.m. Sarah and Josh will be here to perform a Beltane Concert with plenty of interesting music and dancing. There is no charge to attend, although throw a little something into the basket for the effort! Coffee, tea, cookies, and other yummy stuff will be available.
All Herkimer and Desert Diamonds at 15% all month (loose stones and jewelry). Angel statues are 20% off. Anything on the Egyptian shelf is 10% off. All remaining calendars are 40% off.
New Policies and Procedures
Due to some shenanigans, we have decided to institute some new policies effective immediately. ALL SPECIAL ORDERS will require a 50% NON-REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT. We got burned a few times in the last year by people who ordered items, and then decided after we paid for them and the shipping, that they didn’t want them after all. We endeavor to keep our prices low, and run on very short margins. This kind of thing really affects us negatively, and in order to keep serving you all in the best way possible, we need to protect ourselves from this.

Greetings Fellow Travelers!

This was written as a tribute by one of our young students. I thought it was wonderful and I share it here with you now.
To the Rose
Though I never met you,
your presence lingers
accompanying our dragon Guardian
as an angel
past the day you began this life,
as we dance and laugh
of life, for life
and to the Rose...
The wind rises
the May Queen
joins in song,
our King's voice
is louder, stronger than earth
and for the Rose.
'round the May Pole
