Updates, News, Bonuses

It has been a long while since I have posted here. I was injured in February and it took about 2 months to heal. During that time I learned as much as possible each day. Unfortunately, the more one learns the deceptions become apparent. More on that later, maybe.

Since, the purpose of this news blog is incense information I am not sure if I should expose the vast censorship we are facing everywhere. I would like to offer you some alternatives to the popular yet heavily controlled sites.

These are video sites where you may find content or create your own streams:

https://vid.me

http://www.metatube.com

These are some alternative search engines:

http://dogpile.com/

http://www.yippy.com/

http://www.webcrawler.com/

and, these following two search engines provide Google’s censored results without tracking and profiling if you must have Google’s version of the web.

Now, on to incense news-

First, our Eccentric Ape line is currently experiencing shortages and some changes due to the untimely death of the young man who used to make them. Since, this line was a labor of love and dedication to the art of incense making it is all consuming to recreate this line even knowing the methods.  This project, among others has kept us chronically slower than desirable in shipping. We really appreciate the understanding of our loyal customers. We have some of the best people on Earth shopping here and we know it.

Next, Nippon Kodo has a couple of new lines of incense and has changed manufacturing of their popular Morning Star line to Vietnam. Also, they have discontinued the New MorningStar line and discontinued Morning Star Fig, Iris, and Cinnamon, although, Cinnamon will be returning very soon. We do still have Cinnamon in stock at this time, but that can change quickly.

Unfortunately, the newest products are made in Tokyo, and we will not be stocking them due to safety concerns.

Currently, all of the Japanese incense items we carry are made on the south west coast, far from the source, but it is possible that we will eventually cut all Japanese items if we find any evidence  of risk.

This post is getting long so I will get to the specials now.

Rain, possible snow, and cold weather are coming this weekend. If it snows expect long transit times coming up here. Last snowstorm shut down the whole area and traffic was moving at about 2 MPH due to all the people trying to see the snow. All the restaurants ran out of food and all the shelves were emptied. Parking was impossible. If you’re planning to see the snow I would advise starting as early as possible.

We have great stocking stuffers, and unique and unusual gifts for all ages.

Many new stone pendants, pocket watches and more are in store now.

The back country has become a destination for wine, beer and other alcoholic beverage tasting. Please be aware that alcohol affects one more at altitude and use extra caution. It is easy to underestimate the effects of altitude and the fire and rescue seem to be busier as more tasting rooms open.
Also, cannabis and and caffeine both increase the effects of alcohol.

Please help make our roads safer. Unfamiliar, winding and climbing, narrow roads require an alert driver.

Normally, I spend most of my time in the warehouse but yesterday I had to go down to the city. I have never seen so many wildflowers blooming throughout the mountains. It is a beautiful drive right now with masses of color everywhere. With the heat that has arrived the colorful display will probably not last long. Don’t miss it and if you happen to drive up towards Julian stop in and see our store.

Apple season starts now and, this is the time of year when Julian is bustling with activity. Soon the streets will be filled with pedestrians making our tiny, rural town’s lazy atmosphere suddenly very active and alive.

We’re Moving to Main Street in July

Big changes coming for our retail store; For many reasons the Wynola Farms building turns out to be less than ideal as a location for an incense store.  The biggest problem is the impending heat of summer. After a couple of warm days it became apparent that we needed climate control well beyond what could have been achieved.

Luckily, a rare opening happened just as we needed it and we are moving to a bigger store on Main Street in Downtown Julian. Soon we will be able to offer many more items in store which lack of space prevented us from showing at the current location. We will still be open Thursday – Sunday at Wynola Farms until we are able to set up in the new location. We will have new hours/days of operation after we move. Details will be announced here when available.
