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: Working Witch Shoppe
Our hours are Wed & Thurs 11-6, Fri 11-4, Sat & Sun 11-5 (Closed Monday and Tuesday) .
Unlike most shops of our kind today, we are a working, first-class witchcraft shoppe of the Old Ways, NOT a new age/spiritual/metaphysical shop, which are completely separate entities. From a full line of products to personal instruction and assistance, we offer everything you need to work your majick and spellcraft. You will NOT find cookie-cutter items at Effigy as you do at many other stores, but rather an offering of one of the largest and finest selections of quality altar tools such as athames, wands, peytons, chalices and divination tools such as scrying mirrors, pendulums and boards and ouiji/spirit boards. We also carry custom jewelry, candles, incense, herbs, stones, crystals and much, much more. We offer a full service apothecary with almost 200 fresh, not prepackaged, organic herbs, roots and resins that we will hand measure out and/or custom blend for you. We only carry items in our shoppe that we personally use ourselves, and almost all of our items are unique, handpicked and one-of-a-kind which is why some of our items are a little pricier than compared to other stores who carry generic items, however almost all of our items are completely exclusive and not available anywhere else. Rev. Mark hand makes his own potions, brooms, candles and cords and Donna makes and carries her own line of herbal potions and salves. Our selection of stones and crystals are all completely handpicked, and based on size, color and clarity, you won't find a finer selection anywhere else. We offer tarot readings, however, we do not believe in soliciting them. We are extremely old school in our beliefs and we feel people should wantingly walk into the store and actually request to have a reading done. Donna is a gifted reader and has been reading tarot for almost 17 years and she facilitates all of the readings as we don't subscribe to having a "staff" of readers. After all, all you need is one reader who knows what he or she is truly doing. Mark has never been drawn to the tarot, but rather performs divination with ouija boards, scrying mirrors and candles. Since we opened in November of 2010, we have brought and continue to bring the finest workshops on a monthly basis with some of the best witches and authors in the world. Also, being a fact that Mark is an Initiated 3rd Degree Cabot Witch, we were given the honor of carrying all of Laurie Cabot's handmade products at Effigy, including Laurie's own spell kits, potions, oils and incense. Stop in and visit us. You'll be impressed! "Shop with the innovators, not the imitators".
Donna is available for Tarot readings on Saturdays and Sundays for anyone that is interested. Appointments are recommended but not necessary. Please call the shoppe to schedule your reading.
Exciting news! Best selling author and world famous witch who is the foremost authority on the Faerie, Edain McCoy, will be here in December! See below for further information.
Here's our schedule:
Sunday, November 22, 2015 - 12:00 p.m.
Cleansing Class - FREE
Mark conducts these classes several times a year and we are the only shoppe that offers this class free of charge. Many other business require a substantial fee to perform a cleansing at your residence or place of business. Since cleansing/smudging is something that should be performed on a regular basis, we would rather give you instruction on how to orchestrate the cleansing yourself. The proper techniques for cleansing and smudging will be discussed as well as the use of various resins, herbs, incense, oils and stones. This class runs approximately 90 minutes. These classes fill quickly as they are on a first come-first serve basis. Please call the shoppe to reserve your seat.
Saturday, December 19, 2015 at 11:00 a.m. - $35
Edain McCoy - The Faerie: Their Origins, Their Value, Our Partners
Mark's witch sister and his all-time favorite author Edain Mcoy conducts a class on the origin of the faerie folk, how they have been perceived culturally, and how they fit into the spirituality of New Age and Pagan practitioners. We will learn how to approach them, see them, and work with them. We will learn how the function as a bridge between humanity and nature, and how we can help one another heal each other and our respective worlds.
Saturday, December 26, 2015 - 11:00 a.m. - $35.00
Making a Magick Mirror for Scrying or Protection
This workshop will allow participants to make, charge, and use a magick mirror. They can be used for scrying, a form of divination with which we will experiment, and also for protection against negative energy. This multi-function mirror is created with a standard, small mirror that can be purchased in any drugstore. Bring your mirror to the workshop. Round is the preferred shape for magick mirrors, but use whatever feels right or best to you. The herbs, oils, covers, and other items needed for the mirror will be available at the workshop.
Please call the shoppe to reserve your seat.
Edain will also be available for Tarot readings. Please call the shoppe to schedule an appointment.
