Where to Buy Supplies?

Postby PearlGirl » Thu Sep 20, 2018 9:41 pm

Alright everyone, I apologize if this has been asked before (I searched but couldn't find anything really) but I'm looking for places to buy supplies. I live in a pretty small town in New England so there isn't a lot around here for stores. There is one little locally owned place that has crystals and candles, but it is overpriced and often has odd hours. I live in a development and don't have a lot of access to natural herbs. I think my best option is online, but I want a reputable site and one where I know I'm getting what I order.
What sites do you know and trust?

Really there is no difference in the effects we get from our grocery store cooking herbs and those on-line suppliers. Use local produce to build a relationship with it. Dont neglect the weeds growing on local fences & right at home. Ive found the alley behind my inner-city house to be a good resource. And that being said, a well respected organic online company I've dealt with in past years is Mountain Rose Herbs (huge on line catalog) &'i don't need very much for spell casting. i get Japanese incense (less smoke than Indian) & tealite candles in bulk @amazon. Hardware stores, sporting/camping goods can supply the cast iron kettle & blade. Thrift shops & flea markets have amazing finds when you least expect it. Train your imagination by looking at random items & imagining how you can use them for your practice. Repurposing household items is earth-conscious. Don't shop, repurpose.

Oooo and my favorite :fairy: thrift stores!!
and the Goodwill store or Salvation Army.
The advanced search feature is a cool tool, I looked up the keyword "supplies" for you as a topic title, this is what came up. search.php?keywords=Supplies&terms=all&author=&sc=1&sf=titleonly&sr=topics&sk=t&sd=d&st=0&ch=300&t=0&submit=Search

Please feel free to comment further, if you are not finding what you are seeking.

Thank you both! I know it's taken a while for me to reply, I've been working nonstop and unfortunately the forum has taken a backseat. I've checked out the grocery store for herbs and unfortunately there is a pretty limited selection, mostly just mint, thyme, rosemary, parsley (the basic cooking herbs). I think my biggest issue is finding crystals and such. I'm not sure if that is something I can really trust an online site.
As for thrift stores, the only one in my town just closed! I live in a pretty small town and basically there is nothing for miles.
Thank you for the link to similar questions, Firebird!

Hello! I’m not sure if you still need help finding supplies, but I highly suggest searching your local dollar stores! And I don’t mean family dollar or dollar tree ect, although you can find some useful things there! I’m talking about your local independent dollar stores. One of my friends sent me a Snapchat of a dollar store in our area with a huge “spiritual “ section she thought would be of interest to me. So I went to see for myself and sure enough, there’s was a whole aisle of seven day candles like shut your mouth candles, pay me candles, un-jinxing candles, as well as plain ones including black! Those are really hard to find all year round. That’s my biggest tip, cause you never know that you might find
