shopping 03.5.18


Word to the wise: Wiccans don't consider customer service a central tenet of their religion. As Donald Rumsfeld might have said, "You go to Enchantments, 424 E. 9th St. [1st/ A] 212.228.4394, with the witches they have, not the witches you might want or wish to have at a later time."

This 'Magickal Apothecary' has oils like Baron Samedi, a "devotional blend for the Voodoo Loa of the cemetery. Used for working with the Guede." We misread the purpose of another oil, thinking the Ellegua Road Opener would invoke the Orisha of the crosswords, which we could have used. But it's actually of the crossroads. Maybe Baron Samedi could help solve the Saturday crossword.

Enchantments creates custom-carved candles which are "a complete spell that you use as a tool to help manifest your intention." One of those is used for healing karmic trauma, another "invokes the energy of the patron saint of lost lovers," which sounds very melancholy, no? There's a wall of herbs and resins sold by the ounce. You'll also find incense and talismans, books and Tarot cards.

It's good to see cauldrons for sale. We always say: you can never have too many cauldrons.
