|Call First: Over the Past 8 Years Witchvox has featured over 2.000 local shops. During that time ONLY 3 shops have informed us that they were closed, hundreds never bothered, much to the frustration of customers that drove to the shop only to find it 'out of business'... We highly recommend that you CALL Local shop listings before you make the trip. - Witchvox Staff |

Shop Profile: Talisman is a shop offering unique artifacts and objects, both newly-made and vintage, all of a spiritual, mystical, and/or magickal nature from around the world, throughout the ages. In addition to the typical (candles, oils, incense, books and gemstones) we have been working on our line of "Talisman's Own" spell kits, oils, mojo bags, incense and one of a kind spell bottles. We pride ourselves on quality products offered at reasonable prices. Talisman is child and pet-friendly!
Talisman is a place where people can meet and gather to discuss ideas and issues concerning aspects of their personal beliefs without fear of ridicule or judgment. We will offer opportunities to experience various truths and healings through diverse personal spiritual experiences. We celebrate Universal Spirituality - the idea that all spiritual paths lead to The One. Yes, we are part of the New Age Movement - and proud of it! At any given time, behind the counter and in our Reading Room, Talisman is represented by individuals who identify with various Shammanic, Celtic Reconstructionist, Pagan, Strega, Eclectic, Santeria, Spiritualist and Mystic Christian paths. We can, and should, all get along ... right?
Store owner Laura Lenhard is a Hedgewitch, who grew up in Southern California in a family very open to the metaphysical world. Talisman is the culmination of a decades-long dream of owning a stop filled top to bottom with beautiful items. Everything in Talisman is handmade and/or is bought from vendors adhering to the Fair Trade Act. Local craftspeople are invited to come in and "share their wares" - we do not consign but prefer to purchase for resale.
In May 2011 Talisman opened Talisman II and III at Captain's Cove - One Bostwick Avenue in Black Rock (Bridgeport) Connecticut. Open seasonally, May - September, Captain's Cove is one of Connecticut's busiest tourist spots and even though our newest shops are tiny we are enjoying gorgeous harbor views and meeting so many new people!
