Happy Summer, Sojourners!
Happy Memorial Day! The shop will be closed in observance of the holiday on Monday, May 28th. We also wish Jupiter Melchizedek a very happy upcoming birthday!
Starting Friday, June 1st during the First Friday Art Walk, (6:30-until) we welcome Love Joy Drumming in partnership to host a drumming circle, free to all. When the weather is nice, find them across from the Sojourner in the grassy lot on Evans street (where the hammocks are located.) Alternate rain location is inside the Sojourner. We will be open until 9:00 during First Fridays throughout the summer.
We are packed to the rafters in beautiful new merchandise to kick off the summer. Natural locally-made soaps, bug repellents, and bite soother spray is a must have around these parts. We’ve expanded our apothecary to include 6 scents of Dr. Bronner’s Castile soaps in both liquid and bar form.
While you are enjoying the outdoors, remember that burning Ceremonial White sage is a deterrent to uninvited guests at the cook-out, namely the mosquitoes, and we have plenty!
Books and decks are fully stocked, and we have an abundance of beautiful statuary, including most of the Greek Gods of Olympus, and many Norse, Celtic, Hindu, Buddhist and Egyptian Deities.
Prisms, dream catchers, light catchers and wind chimes are a lovely addition to the windows and patios this season. Lanterns, bamboo wind chimes, crystal prisms and strands of bells adorn every arbor of the shop this season!
Shoyeido all-natural Japanese incense is now back in stock! We have restocked favorites from their daily incense line (Including Nokiba/Moss Garden, the most popular) Kyoto Moon, Zen incense, and Jewel series, along with incense ash, bamboo charcoal, and ceramic incense bowls. We also have a new boxed incense to try, Madoka, which is formulated to produce less smoke than other incenses. This brand is truly high quality and my absolute favorite, and I have been proud to watch our selection grow over the years! You have to come try it out if you haven’t!
A note: Yes, these incenses are around $5-$6 for a standard box. They contain no synthetic ingredients or smelly charcoal/saltpeter. However: They contain 35 or more sticks per box! In comparison to our $2.00 eight count boxes of nag champa, they are the higher quality *and* the better deal! 🙂 Something to consider when making your next purchase.
Shipments expected this week:
- New stones in tumbled, raw and flats of specimens
- 4mm and 8mm stone bracelets in many new varieties
- Back-flow incense cones and new burners
Come see us soon!
