The Cottage is Hosting a Two-day Shopping Event!
Join us for gift shopping, refreshments & snacks, laughter & hugs, and, should you choose, a Chakra Assessment or Card Reading by resident intuitive Gayle.
In the Spirit of giving, the Cottage will be collecting cash donations to benefit Well House Grand Rapids, a housing first non-profit organization that seeks to provide low cost permanent housing for the homeless.
In addition to the handmade in-house and local Artisan items available daily at The Cottage, Moondrop Herbals will host two additional guest Artists each day to offer you even more beautiful locally made treasures.
Moondrop Herbals Cottage of Natural Elements
The Cottage will be open 10am – 5pm. Guest Artists will be available 11am – 4pm
Discounts will be found throughout The Cottage on select items, including a 15% discount when you build your own bath, skin, or comfort care gift set. So! What’s new? New books, cards, calendars, journals, crystals, tapestries. New Synergy diffuser and roll- on pulse point blends. New herbal, green, black and red tea. And a new supply of organic chocolate by Theo. If you haven’t seen the beautifully wrapped sun catchers made out of copper, crystals, drift wood, beach glass and other found objects by Sage & Roses you’re in for a real treat, these were a favorite customer gift purchase last year. Also available for the season, new naturally scented soaps by The Natural Factory, including ‘Orange Brew’ which is made with mandarin essential oil and contains a Whitsun Ale by Arcadia Brewing Company. It has a beautiful scent, rich lather, and can be used as a shampoo. I’m currently working on a men’s line of items: Aromatica For Men, which is currently being tested out for review by a few good sports out there. I’m not sure what I’ll throw together for refreshments – but there’s a good chance the magic tea pot will make a return appearance . . . Saturday’s line up includes:
Monica Smith | Objects of Intention
Created using stones, shells, sticks, beads and other found oddities. Each piece is soulfully crafted to provide a visual and energetic focal point to help quiet the mind and center your energy as you set your own intention. Some pieces are designed as alter art, some are wands created to be actively used, other pieces are sculptures that can be cradled in the cup of your hand. The Objects have a general theme, but they are waiting to be directed by your energy. Some Objects are left unfinished, ready for you to add your own meaningful bits and pieces to strengthen your intention as it evolves over time.
Sun Van Dame Jewelry | Timeless Style | Worn for Strength, Confidence, Beauty and Love
Sue creates beautiful, nature-inspired jewelry pieces by texturing, soldering, forging and wrapping her metals. She uses sterling, brass, copper, and steel – and incorporates beautiful stones and pearls into her pieces. Sue keeps the designs simple, yet interesting, asymmetrical but balanced. Just like life! She wants her pieces to be comfortable to wear and act as talismans for the wearer. Worn for strength, confidence, beauty and love. If you need a perfect one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry full of heart & soul for a special person in your life (yes, that includes you), you’ll find it here.
Gayle Campbell | Chakra Assessments | Card Readings
Chakra Clearing and Assessment | Oracle Readings
The Chakra system is a part of your energy field, which pulls in energy from outside; from nature, and other environmental factors including other people. Chakras also pull energy from within; from old thought patterns to current life experiences. When negative energy disrupts the normal flow of the chakras, it affects our physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Gayle Campbell, Master Reiki teacher, Healer and Intuitive will scan and clear your chakras, then impart insight into changes and goals you may wish to make going forward. Fee is $15 for 15 minutes. Alternatively you may choose to have Gayle give you a reading from Buddhism Reading Cards. Let Gayle use her heightened perceptive abilities to discern helpful information and impart guidance by reading and moving energy, through spirit communication, and through translating the layout of cards. Readings are $1 per minute with a 10 minute minimum. Saturday 10a-4p | Sun: noon – 4p | Please have cash or checks on hand for this event as payment will be made directly to Gayle.
