Sacred Economics with Charles Eisenstein


You want to support local & independent for the holidays. We know you do, because you are awesome & you get it. Sometimes it is hard to figure out just HOW to do that, so we decided to put together this quick list of gifts to match your desire to BE THE CHANGE YOU WISH TO SEE.

Happy Holidays!!!
Give the Gift of Homespun Fun
Banner_Logo Finally, a calendar for the local lovers in our lives! Don't miss out on any of the good stuff going down in Central Florida. The 2012 Ourlando Event Calendar is brought to life by the masterful sketches of Thomas Thorspecken who documents the Orlando culture & arts scenes on his website Analog Artist Digital World.


Key local arts and culture events will be listed in this twelve month locally printed collector's piece so you can plan your vacation around all the good stuff happening in town! This calendar is only available through pre-order and at select special events. 


This is a no-brainer gift to give anyone who supports local anything!


A portion of proceeds benefits a local organization of your choice on a sliding scale to fit every budget.  We'd love to see you choose Front Porch Radio (Julie's show) but we believe in the good works of all the organizations you can choose from, so pick the one that makes your heart sing the most!


Order your 2012 Calendar TODAY for delivery in time for Christmas!


ps You might remember seeing a sample of these sketches gracing the walls of Dandelion. It was Thomas' first public art show for his sketches. Prints are rare to come by and an original sketch is even rarer making this calendar a totally rare and completely affordable way to enjoy prints of several sketches all through 2012.
