I appreciate Ed sticking up for K.Foley and her business, but that does not excuse her from deserved criticism, nor should it stop reviewers from giving their honest opinions. I too had a horrible experience after stepping foot in her beautiful store. It looks so inviting, but K.Foley is anything but. I don't mind eccentrics, or passionate people, but she is not only eccentric and passionate, she is also a very angry, combative, and threatening woman. Her vile behavior is counterproductive to the healthy living movement that she apparently cares about. Because for one, she kicks people out the door before they can even purchase their item, browse, or become educated. Secondly, what unhealthy person would ever want to adopt this woman's habits for better health, when she is obviously mentally ill and extremely stressed? I have a long list of herbs, yoga exercises, and meditations that she desperately needs to incorporate into her lifestyle before she has a heart attack!
I had a list of herbs that I wanted to purchase from her written down on a scrap piece of paper. I had my newborn son in my baby sling and I was drinking out of a starbucks to-go coffee cup. She asked my husband and I (rudely) if we needed anything, and we said no thanks. She then literally breathed down my neck and stared at my notes and said, ""why do you need catnip and passionflower? do you even know what that is used for?"" I laughed in disbelief, and I said, ""well i have a book that said that catnip can help with insomnia and passionflower can help with postpartum depression..that is why i am here"" Mind you, i did not really feel like giving out this private information in front of other customers, but her threatening presence forced it out of me. She then told me ""you need to throw out that book, that is all wrong. we don't have anything for you in here, please leave."" I was SHOCKED. I said, ""am I being kicked out...and why??"" She said, ""you probably can't sleep and are depressed because of that toxic plastic you are drinking out of, and honestly I don't want you and your plastic cup invading the air in my store. GET OUT! GET OUT!"" Having given birth less than a month ago, and having been breastfeeding round the clock for the first time in my life, I was emotional and left crying. My husband yelled at her, I cannot remember what was said, but we left in hysterics and my son was frightened. The funny part is, I am still learning and I would have loved more information about the plastic entering my body, but not at all in the way she handled it. And I spoke to a herbalist and catnip and passionflower ARE in fact perfect antidotes for those purposes, and did wonders for me!
I cannot emphasize this more, do not go into this store unless you want to be harassed and degraded by a mental patient on the loose!!
