Hey witches- this is where to get long striped stockings? (Ever since the Wizard of Oz movie, “everyone” seems to know that witches wear striped socks!)
We also have a lovely selection of affordable (fair trade) silver jewelry, as well as hand made necklaces with semi-precious stones. We have hand painted silks, from handkerchief to belly dancing sizes. Tchipakkan makes ceramic figurines suitable for altars and shrines, votifs and cookie stamps (where else are you going to find a pentagram, an awen, or an irmunsil to stamp on your cookies?), and has cookbooks with recipes for pagan cookies.
There are other incidental items, you never can tell what we’ll have…
During this workshop about how to prepare for winter coughs, colds and flu. We’ll make several simple effective herbal remedies including elderberry syrup, sage-horehound cough drops, and Echinacea tincture. Participant will take home recipes and samples of herbal remedies we discussed during the workshop.

Tarot Panel- How to Read Court Cards
This is one of the hardest questions for a beginning reader, because there are SO many ways to read the court cards! Pages are youth, Knights and Kings Men, Queens Women, but while some use hair and eye color, some make an elemental pairing of the court cards, others see the faces on the physical cards. As usual, different readers have different techniques- come hear a few.
As an extra thing you might be interested in- as panels are near and dear to my heart, on the New Normal I ran through some of the topics we’ve had panels on over the last five years at Changing Times Changing Worlds. Listen to that podcast here.
I have been a very active Magickal force in the Occult world since October 1993. I am tarot card reader, a Usui and Sacred Flame Master-Teacher for 14 years in total, an Isian, a Witch, a practitioner of the Haitian Voudoun religion, and I began Circle Sanctuary MIT (Ministers in Training) taught by Selena Fox and others since Winter 2014, and I am presently learning more about color therapy. I am also studying Umbanda for the past 4 years thorough The Temple of Guaracy of Washington D.C. (in Kensington, MD). I am presently in active ordination studies with the Fellowship of Isis under the tutelege of the late Rev. Deena Hartray Butta, FOI Archbishop of the Lyceum of Eleusis in Chicago before she passed away January 27, 2013. I was the previous Godchild of Papa Max Beauvoir; Hougan Elder, biologist and scientist from Mariani, Haiti from 1996 to 2002. I received my First Degree from Silver Ravenwolf and Diane McDonough on Yule 1994 at Dillsburg, PA and my Second Degree (and Third Degree teaching) from Ecumenicon under Rev. Charles Butler in the middle 1990’s. I have taught classes at Cedar Light Grove in Baltimore, at Ecumenicon for several years, at FOI of Chicago for several years and at at least 7 previous Sacred Spaces.
Our own Jane Sibley brings some of her shop: Auntie Arwen’s Spices, which offers a huge selection of seasoning blends, from the flat calm to melt-your-fillings hot. Please do open the jars and sniff. Also read the names; with such combinations as Monkey on a Stick, Vermont Happy Dance (cinnamon sugar), Volcano Goddess Wasabi, or Cosmic Rainbow (organic Masala) they are almost as much fun to say as sniff. When you smell them, you’re going to want several. She also has salts from all over the world (I’ve drawn mandalas with various colors of the salts), peppers from mind to “sign a waiver before buying”, organics, extracts, rubs, and so much more. She also has teas and coffees (probably available to sample in Hospitality), may bring her fudges, and has some interesting miscellanea and closeouts.
