Back in Germany, they call it Winter-schlußverkauf, but in America it’s just a President’s Day white sale. In other words: our BAMBOO SHEETS are now on SALE!

Stop in before the end of Winter and you can save 20% on a set of 100% bamboo sheets from Dreamsacks, the very same sheets that were featured on the Today Show in January. These ultra soft sheets will make you feel like you’re sleeping on a cloud. And more importantly, they are completely free of pesticides and are not treated with formaldehyde like conventional sheets. (Disgusting but true — this toxic chemical is typically used to prevent wrinkling.)

Come see us, or order your sheets online: www.BambuBatu.comAnd for the month of March, we’re also offering our Blog Readers a very special 25% off on a set of bamboo towels, that’s $29.95 instead of $39.95. Mention the blog in our store to redeem your discount.

I shudder to guess how many species of megafauna and microflora have gone extinct since my last Bambu Blog entry, but let’s just say it’s been far too long. On the brighter side of natural selection, it’s my great pleasure to report on Bambu Batu’s upward evolution from south county to the NEW LOCATION in downtown SLO. In the first week of November ’07, we carted a caravan of bamboo treasures on the Silk Road of the Central Coast and relocated our storefront to 1127-A Broad St., SLO. That’s right downtown between Big Sky Café and Boston Bagel, not so far afield from the HempShak.

On November 25, our Grand Opening celebration went off like fireworks at Chinese New Year, with deep discounts throughout the store, tray after tray of fresh sushi rolls from next door, and enough rice wine to sedate a Giant Panda.

Bamboo products proved more popular than ever over the Christmas Season, especially the shirts, socks and dresses from spun bamboo, which sold like fortune cookies. And of course, our bamboo towels remain a perennial favorite. The selection of bamboo clothing grows constantly, and every week we see new styles and fashions. Come in today and check out our luxurious new bamboo bathrobes and scrumptious pajama sets.
