So what's a Pickeyweedz? Great question! That name came from our coven in MI. One of our member's father jokingly called us all that as we are 'always in that woods being Pickeyweedz!" Meaning - most all of our ritual work was conducted in an old grove located just outside of Mason, MI. This grove will always hold significance to us and in honor of that and those like us - we decided there could be no better name representative of our store.
We've both been practicing members of the Pagan community for over two decades. As such we have haunted many a Pagan and New Age shop through living in MI, NC and now PA. We've always been addicted to the scents of incense, candles and old books and having a store of our own has been a long-held dream of us both for quite some time.
We're striving to offer all of that plus something we haven't seen enough of lately - inclusion. What we mean by inclusion is really.. everyone. Regardless of your spiritual path or religious dogma we are all so much more similar than different in our practices. Building on that thought, our store will carry more than just Pagan spirituality but also items of interest ranging from the Eastern beliefs to the Abrahamic religions.
Granted, our primary focus will be to cater to those of the Pagan persuasion but to discount everyone else would be a disservice to those other communities and after all - we all need to be more inclusive nowadays. It's our firm opinion that even if you don't share or even accept another's belief system doesn't mean we can't all be accepting of another's right to practice how they say fit and get along. So yes - you will be able to find a Menorah, a Prayer Rug AND a Pentagram necklace in one store.
The ONE rule in our store for everyone - is just simply... Be Nice. That's it... not too difficult really and one that we believe will equally serve everyone.
So what else sets us apart? Well... we will be offering the following for example (but not limited to):
- Books, Candles, Incense, Jewelry - you know the usual fare.
- Gems / Crystals & Geodes - We have a direct supplier from Colorado... the quality is amazing from these folks
- Hand forged ritual tools - these things take a couple months each to forge and ship to us... each one is unique and so far they all hum
- Bulk Herbs - available by weight
- Local Artisan Wares (Consignment or Otherwise)
- Readings - from us and others - we welcome other readers, astrologists other divination practitioners or Reiki masters etc. to contact us about a space to work - our only ask here is that each reader thoroughly cleanse the area after each reading - ever been to a store where they obviously don't cleanse their space? Yeesh.. keep it clean folks.
- Spell candles - we'll have some pre-made but our preference is to create these in coordination with the customer - ours are done a little differently with our Coven's symbolism and practice incorporated in each candle
Our end goal with Pickeyweedz is to not just have a store but a center for community. A safe place to gather, be yourself and just soak up the good vibes. We will never be too busy to talk to you and if ever we don't know the answer to a question - we will definitely help you find it.
We hope to see you all soon as we are getting closer to opening the physical location in the days to come. We expect to open late Feb-early March 2020. We are so excited and we hope you all are as well.
Love is the Law.
