I don't run a store, but I do run a weekly poetry slam in San Antonio, TX (my day job is teaching) and every year my poetry venue sends a team of 4 poets to the National Poetry Slam to compete against 300+ other poets. This year, we are struggling for funds because of the economy and because SA's art budget was slashed and thus so were our funds. I also help run PuroSlam Working, an organization that works with Non-Profits and Charity Organizations so that we can give back to SA what they give to us (both can be found on facebook as puroslampoetry and puroslamworking).
Anyway, in order to raise money to help get our poets to Nationals this year (Boston), we have set up a PayPal donation center on facebook. If you have the time, the money, and the passion to support local arts in a city that may not be local to you, follow the link, donate a couple bucks, and forever hold the appreciation of four struggling artists in the Alamo City!
Thanks for the indulgence!
that's a really nice image. Sorry for your trouble and I'd sure take you up on it if I could afford it. I was just admiring this image elsewhere the other day. Good luck and I hope you find a good buyer.
I'm desperate to sell this lithograph I have of Jerry's. It's called the "Banyon Tree" and is in mint condition, framed, #273/500 hand-signed. Bought it in New Hope in 2002 and am looking to get back what I payed for it, which was roughly $2,000 (or I'll take the highest offer!)
Even if you, personally, don't want to buy this (or can't afford to) it would be appreciated if the word-of-mouth could get around. I'm desperate....about to get kicked-out of my house and I have 3 dogs and a daughter. I need the money to pay off bills and my rent.
If you have any questions, or would like some pictures, please email me at email@example.com

Sorry marye for not replying sooner!! ha ha!!
Damn, i'm sure i'm going about this Forum thing all wrong, as i post comments and then forget where!!! Those ol' grey cells giving me insubordination at every turn.
We'll be moving first to Yokohama and then hopefully, not too many years after that, further south to the countryside. Picked a good time to go, didn't we?!!!
That old saying about eating carrots makes you see in the dark could well turn out to have some truth in it! Well, glow in the dark.....
A sad, sad thing has happened to my beloved Japan; the people still aren't being properly informed about the radiation. The government as effective as a chocolate teapot.
SHAME on fellow human beings who don't respect their brothers and sisters. SHAME.
and good luck with your relocation and new venture! whereabouts in Japan are you headed?

Spreading good music with that Deadhead, Kynd interaction is the most important thing for me. I always want to turn people on to good stuff, so as a music lover, your happiness is my only concern.
Let's spread some High Times!
(Feels real cheap and crude to be discussing money when it concerns music; especially on Dead.net; makes me feel like taking a shower!, but i guess anyone who would purchase from me is contributing funds to my wife and i's relocation to Japan, where an Organic Bakery/Grocery business is what we hope to open. "From the earth to the friends we haven't met yet".
That and regular trips to Yukotopia, THE Deadhead bar/live venue in the Tokyo area!).
Our heartfelt thanks to anyone who reads this and the Dead.net Forum for the opportunity.
I have a friend who was given a Bear Head hookah. He was told that this belonged to a stage hand from the 1960's-70's and that a member of the Grateful Dead gave it to him. There are a couple of symbols in the pottery, but no markings. Does anyone recognize this?
Here are some links to photos:
I have a lithograph of the black & white "Banyon Tree". It's framed and in new condition. Very beautiful work, Jerry did. I love the piece to death but must sell for financial reasons. I can't afford to have it put on eBay, since everyone who looks questions its authenticity. Craigslist has no bites...not sure how many deadheads who love fine art shop on there.
It's a longshot, but if anyone is slightly interested I'd love to tell more :)
