Enlightened Wares: A Witch’s Shopping Guide for the Hudson Valley
So you are looking for a place to shop in the Hudson Valley where you can ask questions and maybe even get your tarot cards read. Maybe you are curious or maybe you just need to restock some candles.
I like to call them places for enlightened shopping but some simply call them wiccan stores. The funny thing is most of the shops I have been to don't really advertise themselves as just wiccan. They also want people to realize that they offer so many things that can help us with our journey.
If you are someone seeking this type of shopping or you have a friend who would love to have you get them their favorite crystal for their birthday, let me help you find a place to shop in the Hudson Valley.
The list I have put together will have certainly left someone off the list so please be sure to spread the word if I have left your favorite place off my list and I will be sure to add them. The list below is in no particular order so I would suggest maybe just try the one closest to you. You could also make it a point to visit them all to discover all they have to offer.
