I’m running a mini-sale at my Etsy shop:
Purchase a copy of my new poetry chapbook “Nine for Odin” and receive a free prayer card of Odin, and a surprise free gift.
Just let me know which Odin prayer card you want, when you order. We have several: two by Wayne McMillan, one by Lynn Perkins, one by Grace Palmer, and one by Sam Flegal.
The poetry book is available here.
All money raised is going toward two new prayer cards (one for the Lithuanian Goddess of the Sun and the other for the Lithuanian God of the moon).
I’d mentioned a couple of weeks ago that I was raising money to help my assistant with travel expenses this summer (she’s helping me with a Work trip) and that as part of that, i was going to be selling a few things here, and auctioning stuff on ebay. I still haven’t gotten off my butt to get the ebay auctions together, but I do have a few things I want to offer here. I suppose if some of this doesn’t sell here, I’ll put it up on ebay too, but I’d really rather see that these things got good homes.
so, here’s the loot. I”m negotiable on price. Contact me at krasskova at gmail.com if you’re interested.
1. Multiple pairs of bamboo knitting needles in various sizes – SOLD!
I crochet, but for awhile I thought about learning to knit — I tried too but always just made a mess of it. LOL. Still, my mother always said that one should start with good, well-made tools, that it made the act of crafting a grace and a pleasure from the very beginning. I took that to heart so even though I was a rank beginner, just starting out, I bought the tools that felt the best in my hands, and that appealed to me on every aesthetic level. These are a pleasure to work with. There is one set of metal needles in the bunch. Whole lot: $60 plus $5 S&H.
2. An oversize, hard bound copy of Audubon’s “Birds of America” and a hard cover copy of Steinbeck’s “The Acts of King Arthur and His Noble Knights.”
The Steinbeck is pristine — I’m not even sure it’s ever been opened. The Audubon book was acquired at a yard sale so it’s got some mild wear.
Steinbeck: $10 plus $5 S&H
Audubon: $25 plus $10 S&H (it’s big and has some weight to it. It’ll take more packaging and cost more to ship. I put a quarter in the picture to show size).
3. A *huge,* hard cover version of “The Kelmscott Chaucer.” This was published by The Folio Society. SOLD
This book is *huge* and weights at least twenty pounds (seriously, it’s friggin’ heavy). It comes with a hard sleeve and is beautifully illustrated. I will not let this go for less than $150 and because of the size and weight, I am asking $25 for S&H (I’ll reimburse if it’s not that much, though truthfully I suspect it to be more). I put that quarter back in this photo too in order to give a sense of size.
4. Hand-crafted Dulcimer with cloth case: ON HOLD for potential buyer
When I was in Berea, KY last year (lovely college town, lots of gorgeous crafts, great people) I bought another dulcimer by one of the artisans there. I don’t need two dulcimers. I”m letting this one go. It’s in fine shape (though it needs tuning lol). Price: $125 plus $25 S&H. Again, if packaging and shipping is less than $25, I’ll reimburse the difference.
If you are interested in any of these items, please contact me at krasskova at gmail.com. Thanks!
