BEST BARGAIN DEITIES FOR YOUR HOME ALTAR - 2009
Hare Krishna temple
I collect deities, and there is no better place for affordable small, colorful statues of Krishna, Radha, Ganesh, etc. than the gift shop inside the Hare Krishna Temple in Culver City. While the clothing here is beautiful and more then a bit pricey, there are all kinds of other, affordable finds. Good incense and Ayurvedic soaps share shelves with real kohl eyeliner priced at only $2. Even better, when you're done shopping you can feast on the downstairs all-you-can-eat vegetarian buffet for a mere 7 bucks. 3764 Watseka Ave., # 1, Culver City. (310) 836-1269.—Elizabeth Bernheim
2. Use fresh herbsAs when choosing plants for other applications, it's crucial that the herbs are as fresh as possible. This will maximize the fullness of the herbs' aromas. To ensure the freshness of the herbs, you could consider growing them yourself. However, if you don't live in an ideal environment for growing certain herbs, then you'll have to buy your herbs from a supplier. If you need to do that, then verify that the herbs supplied are as fresh as possible.
