So yesterday was the annual Halloween sale at a local favorite witch shop. It's a great time to stock up on supplies and goodies. The way it works is that if you buy one item you get the second of equal or lesser value at half off. So lots of people will splurge on the annual Halloween sale. Additionally they have free food, door prizes, gifts with purchase, readings, and an on-site masseuse. In past years they also offered free classes, such as on candle magic. Unfortunately the classes seem to have stopped back in the 90s. I like to go and get my reading in around Halloween time because the veil between the living and the dead is believed to be the thinnest at this time.
The annual Halloween sale has a special place in my memory as I first visited this shop during such sale way back in the early 90s. I've been shopping there ever sense. It's a great place. If you are in the area do drop on by. You will love it. You will meet lots of interesting people and have fascinating conversations as well. Oh, and just so you know, similar sales take place on various other holidays as well.
*I would have taken pics of the inside shop but unfortunately pictures are not allowed. Over the years several people have come in taking pictures with the goal of opening their own shops and wanting to steal the layout of this shop.
