New supplies just arrived
A new shipment of supplies just arrived from Greece. Included are new items and items that were low in stock.

Did you know that:

Double Axe or Labrys was a popular religious or ceremonial symbol at  Knossos, the ancient city in the island of Crete. In our time the labrys is a feminist symbol of strength and self-sufficiency.

The Disk of Phaistos was excavated from the ruins of the palace at Phaistos, in Crete, Greece. Both sides are covered in hieroglyphs, which spiral to the middle of the disk- and though researchers have toiled to discover the meaning of these images, the message of the disk remains undeciphered to this day.

The Cycladic idols were found in tombs on the Cycladic Islands Greece, and are the relics of
a late Neolithic Culture that lived there (3000-2000 B.C.).
