Support Small Business with Debit and WIN!
Did you know that credit card companies charge merchants up to 4% of each sale? You can help us keep our prices as low as possible by choosing to pay with Debit or cash. When you use your debit card, we are only charged $0.10 on each transaction, no matter how much you spend.
We appreciate your extra efforts to support our small business so we want to reward you with a chance to win a special bolster. Anytime you pay with your debit card or cash, you can fill out a ballot to be entered to win a special Long & Lean Bolster. We'll be drawing the name for the special bolster on Tuesday, December 21st.
Guided Meditation Class
To celebrate our first Saturday being open we are offering a pre-registered Guided Meditation Class hosted by owner, Shelley Gordon. This class is limited to 8 participants and requires proof of double vaccination. The shop will be open exclusively for the Guided Meditation participants from 10am - 11am with the meditation portion between 10:15 - 10:45am.
The cost to join our meditation class is $15 per person with $5 of each class being donated to our Holiday Food Drive with Hamilton Food Share. We encourage you to bring in a non-perishable food item to donate as well.
We will provide you with all the meditation cushions and meditation props you need to make your experience as comfortable as possible. This is a wonderful opportunity to try new styles of meditation and all of the possible meditation cushions to support your meditation practice as best as possible.
