Read the News from Shenandoah Moon

Now Open 4 Days a Week!
September’s shorter days and changing temperatures bring many changes to Shenandoah Moon as well. The biggest news is that we will now be open FOUR days a week! Yay! So now you can always find us here Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays between 11am and 5pm. We are here the other days by chance or appointment.

In order to make this possible, we are pleased to announce the addition of a talented new staff member, Luray native Charleen Johnston. If you purchased one of the Bliss Ninja hand warmers, headbands, or leg warmers last December, you may be familiar with her work. Of you may have met her at the Page Valley Arts Council Festival of the Arts or Holiday Market. Charleen is not only a gifted seamstress, she is also a stilt-walker and teaches at a summer circus camp for children, and will be here most Thursdays and Fridays.

If you see long time employee Sierra VanEtten at Walmart, where she now works, say hello to her. Since she has left, we now need someone to work Saturdays. Contact me at 540-743-5810 or if you or someone you know may be interested in a Saturday job.

We are excited that we’ll have a new neighbor on West Main Street in a couple of weeks. Custom Touches by Christi, a window treatment, upholstery and home decor gift shop, is opening in the east side of the old Fitness Center (don’t worry, Downtown Studios is still here too). We’ll write more about Christi’s new business in the next newsletter.

Sunflower Festival

The Page Valley Arts Council is bringing music and performances to Luray on Saturday September 14 behind the Warehouse Art Gallery. We’ll kick off this event with a drum circle at 10:30 am, followed by a ballroom dancing demonstration. At 1 pm and at 4 pm join us for “A Radiant Life”, a playful musical and dance interpretation of the life of a sunflower. Local musicians will be performing throughout the day until about 7 pm. For more information on downtown Luray events at the Festival, go to

Pick up a sunflower token at the Warehouse Art Gallery, made by our very own Pottery Lady Cathie Miranda. Show this token to participating downtown businesses and restaurants for specials. Present the token at Shenandoah Moon on Saturday and get 20% off of everything I make, including painted metal earrings, Flutterbys, leather earrings, bracelets, and hand dyed silk scarves, socks, and baby items.

Fall Merchandise is Coming In!

We’re got two of the hottest trends for Fall — adjustable Druzy quartz bracelets and necklaces, and trendy glass beads, some outlined in rhinestones. We also got a great deal on sterling silver and gemstone rings from India, a real steal at only $24 each, so come in quick for the best selection.

We will be getting a lot of our Fall items in next week, and we are excited about this new merchandise.

We’ve ordered about eight styles of the popular knit Parsley and Sage tunics in from size Small to 2X. New hand-dyed Lost River tops and accessories, from Bali in Indonesia, are on order in regular and plus sizes.

We’ll get the new knit open front jackets from Unique Batik, tie dyed in Thailand, and other Certified Fair Trade products next week as well. Of course, Charleen is working on her new Fall styles, and soon her new upcycled Bliss Ninja tunics, tote bags, hand warmers will be gracing the shelves here.
