This just in from a new customer in North Carolina. So lovely to know that the Wisdom Cards are shining their light near and far! “There are so many things to love about this deck. There is a combination of inspiration and practicality which I think is fantastic. I love that the cards are their own guidebook. One side displays a beautiful photograph, title and keyword, and then a detailed message appears on the back of the card. I am very happy that the production of the deck was environmentally friendly. Finally, it was a pleasure to do business with Jane. She is a very conscientious and gracious seller. I recommend these cards and her shop very highly.” Don’t have your deck yet?

I just wanted to add a resource for your website. The Community Warehouse collects furniture, cookware, small appliances, and linens to distribute to men and women who are coming out of shelters and setting up an apartment of their own. These items are free to the clients (unlike Goodwill and Salvation Army) as long as they are registered with a shelter of some kind. The Community Warehouse has drop-off sites in NE Portland (3969 NE MLK Blvd) and in SW Portland (8745 SW Canyon Lane). For larger items, they will send a truck to your home to pick-up. See their website at http://www.communitywarehouse.org. Phone number is (503) 235-8786.
Thanks for all you do, Jane” – Julia Gies
(NOTE: Setting up that first apartment or needing to replace a broken teapot? The Warehouse also runs The Estate Store at the MLK location. Great way to stretch your budget and help a good cause! Click on the website blog to see featured items.)
“Thank you so much for the stuffication workshop on Tuesday 2/1 at the Beaverton Library. It was both helpful and inspiring.
I very much appreciated your brief history on how we got here. The immediate post-war period in the U.S. was unique in that two major transformations converged: the advent of 1) credit cards and 2) mass advertising. Together these two innoventions ushered in an era of unprecedented economic growth fueled by consumer spending on products that people didn’t need and couldn’t afford.
Since the economic meltdown of 2008-2009, I have been amazed at government efforts to “increase consumer spending” in hopes that we can somehow get back to the halcion days of unregulated credit and out-of-control consumer spending. It was such a breath of fresh air to hear you give voice to the obvious: we will never get back there, and that is a good thing. The future beckons us to spend less on “stuff” that we don’t need and can’t afford.
I came home from your workshop and made a plan for small incremental changes which I began today. First books, then clothes, then kitchenstuff. This project of cleaning out which seemed so overwhelming to me before your workshop, now feels very doable. Thank you!”
