Year of the Tiger! Happy New Year's Sale

Happy new moon and Chinese New Year to all of you today. Today is the beginning of the Metal Tiger year. If you can I hope you can go out and taste some yummy Chinese cuisine today. My favorite part of Chinese New Year is eating yummy red bean moon cakes like these.. yum.

To celebrate Chinese New Year I am offering 15% off my Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon pain relief salve for one week. Sale ends Sunday February 21st.

Recent Etsy Feedback about this salve:

"The hubby's thrilled with this."

"This balm is wonderful for achy "gardening" muscles. I also use it at night for arthritic joints. It helps me to have pain free night. I very much recommend this salve to anyone who experiences pain in muscles or joints."

"Love this!"

St. Patty's Day at the City Island Market in Daytona Beach

I have a new event on my March schedule. You can look for me at the Dayton Beach City Island farmer's market on Saturday March 13th from 8-12 for the St. Patty's Day Celebration.

Get your “green” on at the Downtown Farmers Market at our St. Patty’s Day at the Market event.

FEATURING Glas Tara School of Irish Dance. Search for ye pot-o-gold (treasure hunt) and join in other activities just grand for ol’ leprechauns and wee people. Gain the gift of hyperbole by kissing the one and only Daytonay-Balongay Stone.

“Wander ye well on the World's Most Famous Beach
Then on the Daytonay stone ye shall feel the heat!
‘Tis the stone that whomever kisses gains the gift of blather
Ye shall not want for words to utter; thy equal is no other.
Every maid and gent shall marvel at the tales ye shall tell
Ye shall not lie nor concoct; ye shall embellish well.
‘Tis fruitless to evade the harvest or contend a life alone
Thy devotees of green, increase and smile— for ye have kissed the Daytonay-Balognay Stone.“

Some vendors will include well known locals like NCL Farms local organically grown produce, kimchi and more; Ocie’s Gourmet homemade preserves, local honey and eggs; Atomic Mama’s homemade baked goods and wholesale fruits and nuts; Salsa King; and Deep Creek Ranch “beyond organic” beef and lamb.

I will be sure to have plenty of my Dark Stout soap made with Guinness Beer on hand, but don't be shy about putting in pre-orders ahead of time either.

Admission is free.

The Downtown Farmers Market is every Saturday morning and is located in the City Island Parking lot near 105 E Magnolia Avenue in downtown Daytona Beach. For more information contact the Daytona Beach Partnership Association at 386-258-8150.
