Shop The Homestead Now for Christmas!

By , November 24, 2013

So, you’ve been logging into this blog for the last year or more, and have liked what you’ve found here. Now, the year’s rolled around to that annual opportunity to subtly influence others’ tastes and opinions by giving them significantly sourced gifts. And, as I’m always yammering on about planning ahead, about being prepared, it’s only appropriate that you act now to purchase Zeiger Family Homestead gifts for your loved ones! No, really. I’m not going to get into the number of shopping days till Christmas, but let’s face it: if you want to give someone an autographed copy of Sacred Coffee: A “Homesteader’s” Paradigm, Shy Ghosts Dancing: Dark Tales from Southeast Alaska, or an original knit-sculpture animal from Aly for Christmas, you’d better order now!

We live in bush Alaska. Our severe winter weather achieves its ultimate unpredictability at this time of year. Our tiny, valiant Post Office staff has more than their share of work to do during the holidays. The sooner we ship these things to you, the better! Besides which, quantities are, as ever, limited. We’ve already sold out of our homemade soap varieties, and won’t be producing more until January. I know it seems a bit counter-intuitive to urge you to order just after I admitted that we’re traveling, and may not receive your orders (see While We’re Gone…) but you never know, do you? I’ll have a couple copies of the books with me, and might be able to mail them to you while I’m down south, closer to your mailbox. And, any orders we find when we return will become a high priority for us, of course. Original artwork from Café Press ships from their printers. And, electronic files, like ebooks and garden sifter plans can be sent more or less instantaneously. But, if you’re going to make a sifter for your favorite gardener (a great idea!) you’ll want to get started soon! Yes, I realize that this post, juxtaposed with others that you’ll read in the coming days that rail against seasonal commercialism, will be very hypocritical. But, if you order from home, or ask your local independent bookstore for my books before “Black Friday,” then you can stay home in the bosom of your family on Thanksgiving. So, beat the holiday rush! Take a look at our store page to see what’s available for gift giving this season.

    Having trouble with the link above getting to the store. Anyone else? The page you tried to access does not exist on this server. This page may not exist due to the following reasons:
    I Believe it’s due to the link to http://akzeigers.com/Store.html the word Store is capitalized, if I uncap the letter “s” it I can get to the store. – May want to have a look.

  2. Sherry says:

    Something wrong with the link above for the store page. Keeps saying “page not found.”

  3. Mark Zeiger says:

    Sherry, Don, thanks for letting me know about the link.

    Don, you’re absolutely correct. I capitalized “Store,” and WordPress couldn’t resolve that into a meaningful URL. That’s what I get for typing out my URLs instead of copying and pasting.

    I just fixed it. Go forth and shop! 🙂

  4. Sherry says:

    Still having trouble with the link and getting the error message….looks like there is a colon missing in the URL.

  5. Mark Zeiger says:

    Nope, another code sting got duplicated automatically. Should be cleared up now.

    And, there’s always the “store” tab on the main Web page. AKZeigers.com, which doesn’t get as much attention as it ought, since the blog took off. Hope this helps!
