We're back after a brief spring break and hope those of you who celebrated Mother's Day had a wonderful time!
With the later spring and early summer holidays on our near horizon, WFS pauses for a moment or two to rearrange our displays in the store, and bring new merchandise in. We have already received in Imagine Chocolate, a delicious, local gourmet chocolate producer; have picked up some beautiful (locally grown) live orchids; and are showing a new artist's work! We've also received in some great new books, and are having a GrantBuilder's Workshop on Tuesday, May 21, with one of the authors. Here's the flyer for the workshop:
A week ago Friday, we had a lovely book signing event with Elliot M. Gold, where we listened to interviews he'd done as a TIME/LIFE photojournalist of rock n roll icons. His book "Rememories" is a compilation of these interviews, and to actually hear the voices of people like Grace Slick, Bruce "Cousin Brucie" Morrow, and Andrew Young! Here's a photo from Altadenablog of Elliot during the event:
This was such an interesting and moving event, and Elliot assures us that he's available to do it again - lucky us!
On our calender for June is a book signing with author Carol Woodliff, whose book, "From Scared To Sacred: Lessons In Learning To Dance With Life", touched us deeply. On Thursday, June 6, we'll all learn about how to reclassify fear and how to let the voice within guide you to your highest endeavors. Well be looking forward to this with anticipation - make sure to reserve this date on your schedule, you won't want to miss it!
Danny's Farm, where we were able to send them 15% of our net sales, and we also raised $120.00 for West, Texas, where the town was almost wiped out due to a fertilizer factory explosion. We're very grateful to our customers who donated so readily!
Until next week, friends!
