Diablo Dimes is Blues, Americana, Ragtime, Boogie Woogie, Dixieland, Calypso, Hokum, Roots... Self described as 'Honkytonk, hooked, hop, lushhead heebies, and a full orchestration at a barrelhouse!' This is a sincere, primitive, and nostalgic approach most songwriters only dream of.

R. Dirtflower Crystals

I have been outdoors most of my life. As a child I loved walking the plowed Earth. Finding crystals and arrowheads became part of me. I grew into the arena of Horticulture and Entomology quite naturally. While gardening all my adult life I injured my back. It was worth it in many ways. I gravitated back to crystal & minerals and opened a little shop in Ellicott City. My goal is to be kind and share these crystals at affordable prices.They are from all over the world. I have actually worked with these crystals and know their vibrations well... I will have healing crystals, magic crystal, crystal balls and minerals etc for sale.
