Card of the Month -

Hi friends, I have some quick housekeeping before I get to the Tarot Card of the Month. First, we would like to thank everyone who took a look at our brand new website and provided feedback.

Second, we have been busy creating new summer goth items so that you can look cool when it’s hot out. They are definitely worth checking out. Third, we’ve created a new hashtag...

It’s hard to stress just how much every online order means to us. THANK...

Hi Friends, I hope you’re doing well. I started writing this blog as an update  and I ended up writing about something completely different. I’m about to go on a little rant about 2020 and Tarot. If that doesn’t sound appealing to you, please feel free to skip to the bulleted list at the end for some updates and general information. I will not be offended.   If you’re still here, strap in, we’re going on a journey. Does anyone else feel like 2020 drew the Tower Card? If you’re unfamiliar with Tarot, the Tower card usually depicts a tower in...
