Upcoming Events


ART WALK  Friday, December 6, 6–10pm

The Healing Energies of Crystals and Stones

Beverly and Scott, the owners of Higher Vibration Source, work in Holistic Healing. They found that using the healing energies of crystals and stones works very well supporting the natural healing ability of our bodies. They also began using crystals and stones to support a healthy environment and teaching others about the amazing properties and energies of these gifts of nature. Friday night, Beverly and Scott will share their large collection of healing crystals and stones with Art Walkers visiting The Franklin Shops. Here, they offer over a hundred types of stones. There also is a wonderful collection of reference books to assist in choosing the right stones to meet your needs. 

Rain Forest Artisans and Florida Artists

The Naples Art Collection Rain Forest Artisans was formed almost twenty ago to collect and offer fair trade art works from throughout the Americas – and especially from Central America. These works are discovered by Kenton Ownbey when traveling through remote mountain villages in Honduras, Nicaragua, and other Central American countries.  Ownbey’s art collection also presents local artists Walt Hyla with his brilliant ceramics and Heidi Montgomery with her fascinating array of animal expressions made from natural materials. During Art Walk, Ownbey and the artists will meet Art Walkers at the shops.

The local mystery writer will present the newest book in his detective series: Bring Me the Head of the Sanibel Sunset Detective. The entertaining murder mysteries all take place on Sanibel, which isn’t as idyllic and safe as you might think…
Ron Base: “It seems hard to believe, but it's been ten years since an unlikely private
detective named Callister first appeared on Sanibel and Captiva.” In the new novel, the detective faces a real challenge: Somebody wants his head. It could be one of the two hoodlums threatening his life. One thing is certain. Callister had better find the missing fiancée of a homicidal gangster’s daughter and find her fast. This could be Callister’s wildest adventure yet. If he can keep his head…
