So I’m gearing up for my very first actual vending event this Saturday at Central NJ Pagan Pride (where I’ll also be doing a free workshop on poppet magic!). I’ve been sewing and spelling a variety of poppets, cat toys and pocket charms for this event for weeks. Yesterday I got them all bagged and tagged. Today’s goal? Bag/bottle and tag everything herbal or salt based. I grow a crazy amount of herbs in my garden and I’ve been harvesting and drying for the last few weeks. I’ve been mixing herbal mixes, black salt, hot foot powder, basil salt and a ton of other goodies. I’m having more fun than a kid on Christmas (or should that be a witch on Halloween?). Thursday is set for bottling liquids – my custom Hecate sprays, ghost water, Van Van oil, abro camino oil, a few bottles of Chinese wash, and a variety of other brewed and anointing oils. I just hope my stash of empty bottles holds out til the end!
At the Monmouth County Broom & Brew tent (look for us in space 7!) we’ll also be offering tarot/oracle card readings (I’ll have my tea leaf cards ready to go!) and Reiki mini-sessions in a chair. That not to mention all the other goodies the other ladies in our group will be selling. We’ll also be exclusively featuring the art of comic book artist Danny Kelly!
Not going to make it out to NJ this weekend? Here’s a little something you can create on your own!
