Temporary Closed due to COVID-19

Temporarily Closed due to COVID-19.

We hope to reopen soon!

We have locally crafted herbal teas and tinctures, over 150 bulk medicinal herbs and culinary spices, gemstones, all-natural soaps, candles, books, singing bowls, incense, essential oils, local pottery, jewelry, and many other fun gifts!


Given the extent of the emergency we are facing, we are now closed indefinitely.


Concern for public and personal health combined with our being a very small, single-administrator, showroom-only business leaves us finding no way to safely serve customers at this time.


It is best that we all stay home for a period of time to curtail the spiraling epidemic and save lives. As a business, we are not logistically able to convert to an online/delivery or pick-up business. However, the products we sell can be found online - though there are slowdowns everywhere. No need to hoard, just have patience, make the best of what is on hand, and practice healthy habits as much as possible.


We hope to be able to reopen the store, and hope that you will come back to buying from your small independent local retailer as soon as it’s safe. We have enormous appreciation for our fantastic customers and hope we will be able to reopen down the road and make a go of it. Stay tuned for future announcements, and meanwhile:

Stay Home, and Stay Well!
