Got Buddha Bowls??????

Since I've discovered Capree's blog (My Adventure Is Your Advantage) I have been a huge fan.  I even have her blog on my top bar of 'favorites'.  Capree's blog is fresh, insightful and inspiring.  As a retailer it's hard to find inspiration but Capree really has her finger on the pulse of design. Quite frankly, I don't know how and where she finds her information but I'm glad she does it.  Now Capree has included one of our products and our store on her blog and I have to say that I'm as proud as can be.  To be mentioned by someone that inspires you is really awesome.  

Anyway, enough of the gushing like a proud papa.  Capree featuring our Buddha Bowls on her blog has inspired us to create a SALE in her name.  For one month only (sale ends Oct 20th) we'll give 10% OFF any purchase of a Buddha Bowl.  We'll also ship it for FREE!  That's an awesome deal.  These bowls are made to order in the USA / Canada.  So be proud and be patient but more importantly be happy that you got one of these awesome products.  We love them.  Capree loves them.  And we know you'll love them.  Check out Capree's blog and become a fan:

MIXKO Bone China Skull Ring

Straight out of the UK design firm MIXKO comes these ultra sleek, ultra contemporary, ultra goth bone china skull rings.  Don't fall for imitations with their shallow eyes and poor detail.   These handmade porcelain skulls are finely detailed and in proper proportion for its size.  The minute I saw these rings it was love at first sight and you'll fall equally in love.  The smooth cool texture of the bone china gives these skulls a whole new grove.  The hard edge skull image marries perfectly with the smooth bone china medium.  They are measured in mm and are available in our store or on our website at but hurry because we're one of the first stores in the US to actually stock these rings so you'll hard pressed to actually try one on at any other store.   Join us in our fight against the "e-tailer" which is ruining the American dream of hard work and dedication.

Another Satisfied Geneva Customer

Thanks Eric for sending this great photograph of his newly purchased large Geneva Sound System in walnut.  Of course he placed it next to another one of his prized possessions, his original Heritage H-555 Gibson guitar that was made at the original Kalamazoo Michigan plant.  Eric also purchased a small Geneva Sound unit in black for his bedroom.  I can't imagine anything better than having a small Geneva with an iPhone docked right to it sitting in your bedroom as it charges playing your favorite tunes (it'll even accept phone calls while it's docked and playing turning off the music so you can accept the phone call.............. WOW!).  And all this while not losing an ounce of sound thanks to the class D amplifiers and the handmade box that projects the tremendous sound.

Philly Magazine Best Places to Live

Phoenixville rated one of the 10 most awesome places to live in the Philadelphia area by Philly Magazine.  Our store was highlighted in the article with an awesome picture (which I'm looking to find on the web).  Check out part of the article below or go to any store that sells Philly Mag and check it out yourself.



The Crossroads
PhoenixvilleChester County

Pre-war twins sit cheek-to-jowl with Victorians and new condos in a borough where CEOs and construction workers all shop at the same organic grocery. The small but flourishing downtown and a recent flood of young people up the cool factor, too.

Schools: High-ranking Phoenixville Area High School has a 15:1 student-teacher ratio.

Commute to Philly: 40 minutes by car; 20-minute drive to the Villanova train station, then 25 minutes on the R5.

Things you get: Housing from $150,000 to $600,000-plus; parks galore, including neighboring Valley Forge; 32 places of worship; Civic Center family nights; neighborhood hangs (Pickering Creek Inn, Iron Hill Brewery … ).   

Things you don’t:  A train stop. Every township along the 422 corridor wants a line, but it hasn’t happened yet. Also, good Chinese food.

Betcha didn’t know: Oft overshadowed by Colonial Theatre’s BlobFest, the Firebird Festival bonfires a locally crafted sculpture of a phoenix.   

Residents you ought to know: David Friday and Lindsay Herman, owners of Bridge Street’s stylish Hipster Home (meet ’em on First Fridays); Dan and Marge Lejeune, who built Phoenixville’s private golf club, Rivercrest.

The future: More momentum behind Project Train. In the meantime, more bike paths and off-trail bike parking. 

Meet the neighbors: “We bought 20 years ago,” says Greg Cordes, who lives with his wife, Linda, in a 1938 colonial, “and it turned out to be a gold mine. Down the street is Holy Family school, where our daughter went. We can walk to the theater, shopping, to eat. We’re selling our house — it’s too big for us now — but we’re staying here. Forever.”

Wanna buy here? “Prices are reasonable, especially with so many community amenities,” says Joseph Scott McArdle, of Prudential Fox & Roach. “But places priced the same can be in vastly different condition. Look at everything, and make sure your agent knows Phoenixville and knows a deal from ... what’s not.”

Just sold: A new-construction one-bedroom condo with garage parking, hardwood floors and an eco-friendly kitchen, for $165,500.
