Just opened another site on ETSY for my "different" items that might not go over as well on my original site (store name LIGNA, https://www.etsy.com/shop/LIGNA?ref=hdr_shop_menu).
The new store (WoodOnTheMountain) has some dead related items but I mostly do custom items to create something unique and special for you:
Been a deadhead for quite a while (first show was 9/71), taped a whole bunch of shows west of the mississippi, specialized in making taping equipment back in the day. Miss jerry every day ...
Earrings, pendants, pens, clocks, beer bottle art and other items, check it out. My newest work are some belt buckles (not listed yet, still making prototypes). One idea is to engrave the date and location of your favorite show on a belt buckle. This is a variation of an anniversary date or special occasion on a beer bottle.
Tried to sell my stuff through dead merchandising back 5 years or so. They really liked it but wanted $3-4K for insurance,... ?? That was too much for my projected volume. Would be interested in anyone who does sell dead stuff and might want to carry my stuff. Staying away from copyright stuff but could do that if there were no legal problems.
I just private messaged you...
All gone. Thanks to all!

I created a few GD Christmas and Holiday cards, for sale on my Etsy shop. Individual cards available for purchase as well as sets of 5, 10 and 20 cards.
I also have a few GD 50 Anniversary Posters available!
New Music on the Way!
I'm a dedicated musician who's been a lifelong fan of the Grateful Dead, who in fear of not being original spent the first 20 years of my legal adulthood avoiding my most profound musical influence. I mostly pursued jazz, soul, bluegrass, folk, etc. (You know, all the ingredients) After years of being disappointed with the shortage of new music truly in the vein of the Grateful Dead, I finally gave into it and have been recording an all original double-length psychedelic roots rock record. I've completed recording and now I'm producing a full length lyric/graphic video to accompany the music for free release on YouTube.
I've written/improvised/recorded/produced all the music and video on my own. Time spent working on the project has gone beyond 1,500 hours and counting. I made the songwriting a major focus as that's been my biggest complaint about a lot of newer jam-band stuff. It's stylistically as diverse as a Dead album. It's generally more high energy but every bit as free and multi-dimensional in the instrumentation.
The artist name is my name.
The album title is "Limited Thyme Pantry" (We'll see who can figure out that little puzzle)
The release date is 11-13-15 and a link will be posted as long as that doesn't infringe on the house rules. The album is being put out for free enjoyment on YouTube and I'm looking at making the audio available for free download on my website.
If you happen upon this message, check out the album and get as excited as I obviously am about it, please share with all of your kindest friends. Once it's out, I'll be making as much noise as I can about it to all my fellow heads.
Warm regards from Kalamazoo

It's time for me to find a good home for this thing. It's the actual 5 foot 7 inch prototype that was made for Jerry to approve, before the K2 Lunatic Fringe snowboards went into production back in '92.

Hope somebody will appreciate it for what it is! THanks!
