Christmas Tree Lot---Old Fashion, Old Town, in Salida Colorado.

Christmas Tree Lot---Old Fashion, Old Town, in Salida Colorado.
 
 
 
The lot officially opens the day after Thanksgiving. I have personally harvested each and every tree. They are fresh, local, free rangin, organic, natural trees thinned for forest health. I purchased a forest service permit to add variety to the pinon [ Charlie brown trees I had last year and this year ]. Prices will range from $12.00 and up depending on species and over all aesthetics. I also have a nice selection of "lobby Trees" for those of you with big rooms and high ceilings [shop early for a better selection of the lobby trees].
Price List:
Pinon pine: $6.50 per linear ft.
Ponderosa Pine: $7.50 Per linear ft.
Douglas Fir: $9.00 per linear ft.
Discounts for mis-shapen trees with "character" otherwise known as the "Charlie Brown"
10 percent of sales to benefit "Guidestone" and the Salida 8th grade basketball team. Coach Lapp has been holding an open gym every week for two years now and is really starting to build a program. He used last years donation to help under privileged kids pay for their athletic fees! Good on ya Coach!

Where else can you get a Christmas Tree directly under Christmas Mountain

Where else can you get a Christmas Tree directly under Christmas Mountain

Well once again the Christmas Season is upon us. This Year I purchased a Christmas Tree permit from the Forest Service and spent the last 2 days filling that permit under the watchful eye of Mt. Shavano. This permit allowed me to collect several High Elevation trees such as Spruce, Doug Fir and Ponderosa to add to this years tree selection. I personally with the aid of my Wife select and harvest each tree with an eye towards not only its aesthetics, but how and where it sits in the forest. We only take trees that need to be culled from the herd so to speak where there is competition from other trees of the same species in the immediate area.

I was able to harvest some grade A Trees that are full, Shapely, Tall [10-14 ft.] that would do nicely in a large lobby or home and we would be thrilled if we found a good home for these trees. Prices for these trees will range from $45.00-$120.00 Depending on size and quality of the individual tree.

From now till Thanksgiving I will be harvesting my "Charlie Brown Trees", mostly pinion, off of my land. These trees are being thinned and culled from areas where they are encroaching my meadow and road and for Fire Mitigation. These trees will mostly be 3-6' ft. in height and prices will range from $10.00 to $45.00 Depending on size and quality of the individual tree.

If you are interested please come by our Old Town Old Fashion Tree lot located directly behind wanderLust road on G Street. Shop Early for best selection, especially if you are interested in one of our "Lobby Trees".
   So, the Tree lot idea was a way to thin competing trees off my land. In the past we have found pinions to work great. They have a strong aroma, they hold up well and they are from right in our back yard, not some plastic looking tree with fern like needles[?] that come from?????? not anywhere in the rocky mountains. Any way we hope you come down and support our old fashioned Christmas tree lot cause it really is local

Salida Art Walk 2013 @ wanderLust road.


Salida Art Walk 2013


Teresa's HiFi Follies.

For this year’s Art Walk wanderLust road is proud to present; Jack Chivvis and Teresa Koransky. We will be featuring their work on our walls for the entire year.




Terri and I have been in Salida now for 19 years and when we first moved back in “94” “Cactus Jack” was already a Salida Icon known for his Folk Art and Assemblages and for sitting in front of his former gallery plucking the banjo and other instruments or riding on his “Ordinary” bicycle. There was a time when people’s first images of Salida would have been Cactus Jack Chivvis and we are super stoked that he is displaying his art with wanderLust road.


You can find more Info about Jack and his art @Chivvis and Lovell Studios Home Page


 












Hi-fi = High fidelity—or “Hi-Fi”—is a term used in the 1970’s by home stereo listeners and home audio enthusiasts (audiophiles) to refer to high-quality reproduction of sound.

Folly = “Folly” as in the sense of fun or light-heartedness.

Teresa Koransky

 

Teresa has always drawn and painted, from her very first memory of maybe 5 or 6 years old on a chalkboard at home. She grew up in North Ft Myers Florida and studied art and painted in high school. After escaping her parents’ home, she lived the artist’s life in Ft Lauderdale for a few years in her twenties, painting in a studio with other artists. She studied architecture at Mississippi State University and took every art class she could, working in many different mediums. After college, she worked in the architecture field for many years.

 

After relocating to Salida in 2007 she felt her artistic past calling again, returning to her artistic roots for fun. While she worked at a local community radio station (KHEN 106.9) she saw shelves of vinyl records scratched and damaged beyond being playable. However, no one could bear to throw them out. They held too many fond memories from the past. She, herself, had two boxes of vinyl records that had moved with her several times, twenty years after getting rid of her turntable! She wanted to preserve those memories.

 

She started Hi Fi Follies in 2009, focusing on creating art from what would otherwise become landfill. She experimented with many different techniques, heating, folding, painting to create art from worn out vinyl records. Her art has gone through many changes and those “Follies” still continue to evolve.

 

-Teresa Koransky is also the self-employed owner of TandaCAD Drafting and Design. She enjoys cooking, home brewing beer, and sharing a laugh with lots of friends. She shares her life in Salida with her husband Andrew and two dogs, Max and Millie.










So there it is our art Walk line up!
           stop on by, try some damn tasty wine, relax and if willing i'm sure we'll show you a mighty fine tyme.

Salida's "ART" Bridge by the Boat Ramp


Wanderlust road would like to take this opportunity to thank Shark and his partner [?] for the super awesome job that they have done with the boat ramp bridge. From the engineering, the under slab construction that we will never see again, to the ever evolving finished product, Un-believable! What a deal that we / the town got for that functional sculpture. We find it hard to believe that anybody else would be putting that much love and energy into a project. Well Done Shark! It is absolutely beautiful. Thanks a lot!!   Terri & Greg Proprietors; wanderLust road
