We really love being hands-on in our shop, it means a lot to us to work closely with the specimens that we carry and also to stretch our Art Muscles while we work! You know what else we love? Working with YOU! It's a real joy to help our creative customers bring their visions to (still*) life in our workshops - y'all have great ideas and taste - and our Still Life Lantern class is probably my favorite for this very reason! We still have some spaces available in our Still Life Lantern Class this Thursday - if you haven't signed up yet, there is still time! http://www.oraclekc.com/shop/still-life-lantern-workshop-january-30
We are having our first ever Numerology Happy Hour on Tuesday, September 8 from 4:00-6:00 pm! Our resident Potions Master, Carrie Parker will be offering numerology readings during the Hour of Happy! Bring your friends, It's going to be fun, y'all - come say hi, have a refreshment and get your *numerology on!
*But what IS numerology, you may be asking (it's okay, I had to ask too)?
Well, Numerology is the study of numbers and the occult manner in which they reflect certain aptitudes and character tendencies as part of the greater, cosmic plan. The sum of the numbers in your birth date and the sum value derived from the letters in your birth name provide particular vibrations. Similarly, each phonetic letter has a numeric value that provides a related cosmic vibration. All of these numbers combine to reveal a great deal about a person's character, purpose in life, what motivates them and where their talents may lie.
In short, it's another way to gain some self-introspection - which I find always washes down a little easier with cocktails and friends!
Just a friendly reminder that we are celebrating our TWO YEAR ANNIVERSARY this month by offering our wonderful customers a discount of 10% on purchases over $100 and a discount of 20% on purchases over $200 - because we like y'all, WE LIKE Y'ALL A LOT!!
(Consignment items are excluded from this sale.)
Holy Smokes you guys...this August it will be two years since we first opened our doors for business!! I swear it feels like it was just yesterday, but so much has happened in that window of time! We have changed locations, expanded our shop and we have added the one and only Bone Wizard to our partnership...and that's not even the half of it! We have held educational workshops for artists who love science and for scientists who love art; dedicated our back room for in-shop production of skeleton articulation, for preserving and framing insects, pop-up shops and art installations; we have hosted tarot and palmistry parties (during which we have laughed and cried but mostly laughed with y'all); we have been pushed creatively in ways we never thought possible and we have so much more planned!
We are so happy to be a part of the thriving (and, fortunately for us, very open-minded) community of West 18th Street and we sure wouldn't be here without our wonderful customers!! We like y'all, is our point, and we want to say thank you.
Traditionally, a person gives the gift of cotton to mark a two year anniversary...we like cotton just fine, but we can do a little better than that. For the month of August, by way of a thank you to our amazing customers, we are offering a 10% discount on purchases* over $100 and a 20% discount on purchases over $200!! (*Excludes certain items). Thank you so much for your support, we wouldn't be here without it!
We have revised our Curio Of The Month Club and have some exciting news to share with Y'all tomorrow! Membership tiers will start at $10 - details to come, stay posted!
(Pssst - also available for you lovelies who live out of town - we ship to your door!)
It's that time again - First Friday Art Walk is happening this Friday, June 5th and HOO BOY is it going to be a good one! Skeleton Key Tarot will be in the shop doing fabulous mini-readings from 6:00-9:00 pm and we will be burning the midnight oil with extended shop hours, refreshments and new treasure for all of you! Oh, and did we mention that Mildred's Coffeehouse is having their summer block party for the Crossroads on Friday?
Forget all of your preconceived notions about chains because this Friday things will be off them. IT'S ON, Y'ALL!!!
