Showtime: 2024 UFO/Paranormal Summit

Greetings friends!

Just a quick update with some photos from our latest event: Although it was on very short notice, we packed up the "shop" and headed for Ocean Shores, Washington for the 2024 UFO/Paranormal Summit during the first weekend of May.

We were delighted to have been invited to the "reboot" of this event after our last time there in 2019, before Covid!

Sarah was one of the presenters in the main conference hall, while I kept the Alchemy Stones tables in the vendor area.

Because the event was announced with relatively short notice, we lucked out and got a "double table."

This has long been our favorite "niche event" and it is put together and run by some wonderful folks, and the attendance is typically very large, drawing from both metro Seattle-Tacoma and metro Portland. This year was no exception, and we're really glad to have this even back on the show calendar!

Overall, I am just really happy that it seems like "going to events" has pretty much recovered to the point we were at, by the end of 2019. It has been a few strange and turbulent years for independent arts and crafts people, particularly if you're primarily depending on face-to-face events for the bulk of your sales, as we do.

Although Alchemy Stones do photograph quite well, part of the appeal comes from simply being able to hold them in your hand.

Anyway, we're hoping to come back to this event next year, although you never know! Thanks to everyone who stopped by the booth to say hello, and thanks to Johnny Manson and crew for putting on a great event!


Happy New Year From Alchemy Stones!

Greetings everyone, and welcome to 2024!

We hope you have had a great Holiday season, and would like to thank everyone who took the time to come out and see us at the various Christmas Fairs we attended at the end of 2023!

It was really nice to see some old friends and make some new ones... and we were really happy to see that people finally seem to be "getting out again" in the wake of Covid scares.

At the moment, we are working to update our Etsy shop for 2024, making it the primary sales outlet for Alchemy Stones. Whereas we will continue to maintain a presence on eBay, its importance is declining on account of the giant marketplaces' growing emphasis on servicing large corporations rather than individual sellers. It's a shame, since eBay owes its success to individual sellers...

We're excited about the new year, and hope to bring lots of beautiful new items to you over the coming months.

This year, we will particularly be focusing on the metaphysical and healing aspects of Alchemy Stones... an area we have increasingly been getting positive feedback about!
