Hey, folks!

We’ll be doing an Inventory Clearance Sale this weekend as part of Market Days. Basically, anything that isn’t handmade is on sale. Books are 20% off, candles, incense, and crystals are 30% off, and teapots, garden kits, Eco-chic bags, spun bamboo, Stolat Organics, Just Naturals/Grayson’s products, Aurora glass and non-consignment Jewlery are all 50% off.

Market Days runs tomorrow through Saturday. We will be open our normal business hours, 11-6 on Thursday and Friday, and 10-4 on Saturday. Hope to see you then!

Also, we got a brief mention on GreenSceneUSA.com as part of a writeup on Green Concord. The article is basically a zip trip through the members of the group and is focussed on bringing in folks from out of town. Check it out here: THE ARTICLE!

Hope you’re having a good week, and staying in the shade!

 

Taking a weekend off… July 3, 2008

In honor of the holiday, Sage Living will be closed Friday and Saturday of this week. We will re-open on Tuesday at 11.

For those of you looking to harvest, St. Johns Wort is at its prime right now; head out and find a stand, pluck the blossoms and put them into a jar, and fill it up with oil. Within a couple of weeks, you’ll have a lovely red brew for cuts, scrapes, burns, etc.

Have a great weekend!

Herbs in the news… June 5, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — sageliving @ 9:06 pm

Picked up Body + Soul magazine today (yes, I still pay for items printed on paper) to read an article on the “30 Best Herbs for Your Health!” and who do I see listed as the authors? My mentor Rosemary Gladstar, whose advanced program I’m currently enjoying thoroughly, and Tania Hannan, one of my fellow students. Turns out she’s an associate editor for the magazine.

It’s a great article, and wouldn’t you know it, I have all of the herbs listed here in store! I strongly recommend folks picking the magazine up, the article has some good basic info.

In other news, Mother Earth News to be specific, is another article I’m happy to see, “Homegrown Medicine: Explore the many benefits of planting medicinal herbs.” They include a list of 30 herbs as well, though I’m missing two on this list (Grindelia isn’t really used all that often, and pipsissewa is nearing endangerment, and both have more common substitutions that I use), and they make note of plants that are at-risk according to United Plant Savers.

I’ll have the articles on hand at the shop if you don’t want to buy the magazines; good info to keep on hand!

 

New Items and Continued Customer Appreciation! May 14, 2008

Filed under: Shop News — sageliving @ 6:30 pm

Hi, all!

Those of you who have had time to venture outside know that it’s a beautiful day out there!  This morning I played with the Comfrey and Angelica, and tended to some new little plants I’m thrilled to get, Bloodroot!  Such gorgeous little flowers, with such big medicine in the roots.  Bloodroot is endangered, and I am honored to have the opportunity to grow some at home.

At the shop, we just got in some posters and cards from local artist Janina Lamb.  With themes like “Nurture Nature”, the poem “Desiderata”, and her beautiful presentation of “The Pledge of Allegiance” (to the Earth!), I’m sure you’ll love her artwork as much as I did when I first saw the Earth Pledge 2 years ago.

We’re continuing the Customer Appreciation/Spring Cleaning sale through the end of the month.  Just swing by the shop, spend $10, and pick a flower to see what your free “Thank You” gift is!

Hope you manage to get outside and enjoy some of this spectacular weather!

Green Blessings,

Rebecca & David
