Magic in the Night Sky

The night sky is always a source of wonder and awe, particularly when the heavens play host to a dance of shooting stars. The Lyrid meteor shower will peak in the pre-dawn hours of April 22 or 23, and if you don’t mind losing a few hours of sleep, chances are good you’ll get a spectacular show. Because the moon will set early on these days, conditions will be ideal for viewing (assuming your weather cooperates).

The Lyrids are a notoriously unpredictable meteor shower, often only producing modest numbers of shooting stars, and in other years, creating amazing outbursts. It is likely that you’ll see 10-20 meteors per hour, although rates of 100 per hour have been noted in some of the most active years.

Update: If you can’t see due to clouds or other conditions, watch them live at Space.com

Good luck!

A Bit About Us

This month, we are celebrating our 20th year in business. That’s a huge milestone for any small business, and we’re awfully glad to be able to celebrate it with you. Our customers are the best in the world, and we look forward to serving you for another twenty years (at least!).

We’ve come a long way from our humble beginnings, selling at local weekend events. As our customer base expanded, and our merchandise lines grew, it became readily apparent that a shift to online and mail-order sales was the way to go. Although we miss being able to meet our customers face-to-face in the real world, we knew that we wanted to give you the personal service of a mom-and-pop shop¬†combined with the ease and convenience of internet shopping. Rest assured that no matter how much our company grows, when you contact us with questions or concerns, we will always do our utmost to make your shopping experience a good one.

We have big plans for the future as well. Of course we will continue to seek out new and interesting items for you and your home.¬†We’re also working hard on several website improvements, including making it easier for you to shop with us on mobile devices like phones and tablets.

In short, we’d like to say “thank you”. Your support and patronage over the years has made this dream a reality, and we are truly grateful.
