Karen is not crazy. She is so passionate about her beliefs that she might seems that way but she is not. We also got into a heated argument the first time I went into her store several years ago. It's her store and her rules. If I came into your house doing or saying something you really didn't like its up to you what you say to me about it. Same goes for her in her store. Nowadays I just agree with her. Get what I need and leave. While in waiting for her to ring me up I usually notice she's selling several hundred dollars of her herbs and spices before she gets to me so maybe the woman is crazy like a fox eh? I do not question her believes. I just try to learn from her. Let's all look for the good in her which is plenty. How hard can it be to not be confrontational with someone who had a job none of us can even image having. It's not that hard I assure you. Once you make it past what you see as crazy behavior in her all will be fine. you'll be glad you swallowed your pride and didn't argue with her.
I went to this business because I knew she'd have the basic ingredients to the recipe I needed for Essiac tea, and she had all of them and the price was so affordable. The owner asks that cellphones not enter her store. A request that does not seem unreasonable. Don't like the rule, go somewhere else. Karen is very knowledgeable and has a passion that flows from her every being. She had so many people in her store today and she fills orders and gives pieces of wisdom as she works. You need patience and you may make a friend while waiting. Each room is filled with information, trinkets, and numerous other things to check out! Respect her request. If you asked someone not to spit on your floor and respect your request, you would not earn the label of "nuts". The request is noted on her front door. Hope you get healthy!
I went in and I DID NOT take my cellphone into her business, as she had requested. She welcomed me and was happy that I had respected her request. I listened to what she had to say, and was understanding, rather than arguing with her about a dumb cellphone. It is a CELLPHONE. You are not going to die if you leave it in your car, while you are in her shop. Upon reading reviews from previous customers, I recognize that they did not respect her boundaries. Anyway, she helped me in the way that I needed and was genuine, as well as passionate. Learn some tolerance people!
