Stunning reclaimed wood furniture at Pinch

We recently had a show at our shop with local artisan, Rob Christopher. Rob is the owner operator of Emotive Reclaim , and he specializes in taking reclaimed wood and turning it into beautiful pieces of furniture.  The show was a great success, and Rob decided to let us hold on to a couple of his pieces.  Come on by the shop to check them out, as the photos below do them no justice.

Event-Spices as Food and Medicine

Join us on Saturday for this educational event.

Spices as Food and Medicine

Saturday, October 6th – 3 PM

Join Doctors of Tibetan Medicine, Monika Budáčová and Todd Marek, on Saturday, October, 6th at 3PM at Pinch Spice Market for a general introduction to the theory of Tibetan Medicine and the use of spices, common and uncommon, as remedies and preventatives for common ailments. We will briefly introduce the practice of Traditional Tibetan Medicine and its foundational theories of the 5 elements, the 3 nyepas (sometimes translated as humors), and the six tastes. From there we will discuss the medical uses of 12 spices in medical formulas, food, and as simple home remedies.
