Musings from Raspberry Moon – January 2016 Newsletter

Can you believe it is 2016! I hope that everyone survived the holidays and got everything they wanted! Mom and I were busy up North at Nan’s and I have been working all last weekend on getting the shop back in line and getting more organized.

I had to get everything ready for my friend and fabulous Acupuncturist, Amber Addison! She started with us last week and we are so excited to have her. She will be taking clients on Monday and Tuesday from 10-6ish and Wednesday from 10-4ish. You can contact Amber directly at 828.275.1008 or email her at

Ladies Night at The Istanbul Cultural Center

Nicole at EverestRaspberry Moon is the host of this month’s Ladies Night. I am so excited to be giving a presentation on my 6 week adventure to China, Tibet and India.

“From the Mountains of Tibet to the crazy streets of India with a little bit of China thrown in the mix – 6 weeks of amazing experiences, people, animals, temples, mosques and let’s not forget the driving experiences!

“Join us as we hear from one of our regular participants, Nicole Martin, with Raspberry Moon Skin Therapy about her amazing 6 week journey through India, Tibet and China. Immersed in the cultures, languages and food. We’ve asked her to package up all of her experiences for us to learn from and travel vicariously to all these exciting places through the pictures and things she brought back. “

Raspberry Moon will be providing Masala Chai (Indian Spiced Tea) and Kheer (Indian dessert). There will also be other items to sample, mostly made by the Turkish Ladies that are always delicious.
