This past weekend, I got to take my first trip to my local metaphysical shop as a witch! I’d been there once before, a couple years ago, and picked up a tarot deck. I didn’t know what I was doing at the time, so it never really went anywhere.
From the upper left, clockwise:
“Meditation” incense, jasmine incense, and a small strawberry sample pack that the shop gave me for free.
Seven candles in the basic colors, about 5″ long.
Clear quartz crystal, no apparent bubbles, about 4″ long. I picked this up and held it in my hand and it just fit perfectly. I tried a few more to see, but none of them felt like they fit as well.
Guard dog incense burner. I wasn’t sure what I wanted, except that I wanted a place to burn incense, but when I walked past this little guy, he gave me a very clear impression of being a Good Doggy who will watch out for the family.
Small “citrine” crystal. Labeled citrine, but clearly a heat-treated amethyst. I still haven’t decided how important that is to me, but it has a perfect thumb-groove on one side which is great for fiddling with when I have excess energy to disperse.
All in all, a pretty good trip. I’m pleased to know that this place is only twenty minutes away, though I plan on buying a lot of my stuff from etsy shops and online suppliers.
