Unfortunately, Wal-Mart, Macy's, and Sears do not carry pentacle-embroidered capes, consecrated tools, or gift sets containing love-drawing perfume. Consider yourself blessed if you have a well-stocked New Age or Occult store in your town. However, if you are one of the thousands of Wiccans who live in small towns or rural areas, mail order is your best bet. For the most part, the metaphysical supply houses listed here are owned and/or operated by Wiccans and those involved in the magickal arts.
If you are ordering by mail, buy in quantity, as large purchases usually cost less per item than single item orders do. If you order candles, order a full box of each color rather than just one candle each. Order oils in sets, incense in bulk, and charcoal by the box. This will save you time, money, and the frustration of not having what you need when you need it.
Also, there are literally hundreds of sources for magickal products; the following are just a few that I'm familiar with. A good place to begin further research is the Internet, but be careful—there are unscrupulous people out there.
Azure Green/Abyss P.O. Box 48
Middlefield, MA 01243 (413) 623-2155
All things magickal. Large catalog. Books, candles, ritual items, oils, incense, music, and much more.
Moon Scents and Magical Blends P.O. Box 180310 Boston, MA 02118 (800) 368-7417
Free catalog. Incense, oil, books, Tarot cards, crystals, jewelry, cauldrons. Nice products, reasonably priced.
White Light Pentacles P.O. Box 8163 Salem, MA 01971 (800) MASTERY
Traditional New Age, Wiccan, Pagan products. Wholesale and retail. White Light is a distribution network and represents a diverse group of mystical business artisans.
Worldwide Curio House P.O. Box 17095 Minneapolis, MN 55417
These people have been in business since the Stone Age. If there is something magickal that you cannot find somewhere else, these folks will more than likely have it. They don't call themselves the world's largest for no reason. Their 220-page catalog is $3.
The Excelsior Index Works
1413 Van Dyke Ave. San Francisco, CA 94124 (800) 423-1125
Exceptional products, including incense, resins, candles, oils, soap, and perfume.
Pyramid Books and New Age Collection
35 Congress St. Salem, MA 01970
One of the nicest New Age stores around. They are open daily, including weekends. The store carries a wide variety of items, including books on Wicca, Tarot cards, statues, incense, and a very nice selection of jewelry.
58 JFK St.
Cambridge, MA 02138 (617) 547-1317
If you are having trouble finding a particular book on Wicca, magick, Celtic studies, or any other metaphysical topic, look no further. Seven Stars also carries some of the nicest crystals and gem stones I have seen, as well as Tarot cards, tapes, magazines, and all manner of magickal wonders. You name it, they'll have it (or will get it for you).

The pathology of the poet says that the undevout astronomer is mad the pathology of the very plain man says that the genius is mad and between these extremes, which stand for ten thousand analogous excesses, the sovereign reason takes the part of a moderator and does what it can. I do not think that there is a pathology of the occult dedications, but about their extravagances no one can question, and it is not less difficult than thankless to act as a moderator regarding them.
