Thrifting For Witchy Supplies
I’ve been planning on talking about this for a while now. Most of my Witchy supplies come from Thrift stores like Savers, Good Will, and other “Mom and Pop” thrift stores. Glass Bottles for herbs, Silver dishes for ritual use, “smudging” bowls, Cauldrons (If you’re LUCKY - It happens), Candle holders, Etc. You don’t have to spend hundreds of dollars at Witchy Shops. They are awesome, and convenient but convenience costs. Before you order online, Or spend an outrageous amount on supplies at a New Age shop or Botanica check out your local Thrift Store.
Here is an example of what I found the other day just shopping around my local Savers. Out of these items I ended up purchasing the SELENITE candle holder which was a really lucky find. 5 freaking dollars. P.S the last picture (Which came out crappy) was a necklace made from Rose Quartz. There where so many other things that could be re purposed into lovely witchy items, But my phone was dying and I was eager to look at boots.
My Tips For Witchy Thrift Shopping
1. Go often - You literally never know what they will have, Or how long it will be there so the more often you go, The better!
2. Check out the “Kitchen” Section- This is the first place I go. This is where you can find “Ritual Knives” Mixing bowls, Jars (With Cork!) and even cauldrons.
3. Ask Employees- Ask about sales, special promos, or membership cards. Don’t be afraid to ask if they’ve seen an item in store sometimes they just might have.
4. Find out when they stock their shelves- This is the best tip because if you play your cards right and plan ahead you can get first pick on special items.
