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.
Special Events (Save the Date—more details to follow)
December 12th: Yule Concert with Sarah and Josh
December 5th: League of Vampiric Bards “Dark Christmas Sing-a-Long”
Drum Circles (Weather permitting)

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

What is Orgonite?
Orgonite is a simple compound which balances ambient energy by turning the negative energy of electromagnetic fields (cellphones, TV, WiFi, microwave ovens, etc.) into positive energy, with many easily-confirmed effects. Orgonite does this continuously, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, without electricity.
