"Effigy is one of the nicest and most beautiful shoppes that I have seen in my forty years in witchcraft."                                                                                                                    Raven Grimassi
 
                                                                                      
 
In October of 2013, Newtown Savings Bank awarded Effigy their  "Business of the Month" Award! This was very special honor to the Shoppe and to the witchcraft community a whole since you rarely see (if at all) that many shops such as Effigy being recognized as an integral part of the neighboring business community!
 
Unlike most establishments of our kind today, Effigy is a working, first-class witchcraft shoppe of the Old Ways and is NOT a new age/spiritual/metaphysical shop, which are completely separate entities. The community obviously needs the new/metaphysical stores as well and we wholeheartedly support them, but it's just not who we are. From a full line of products to personal instruction and assistance, we offer everything you need to work your majick and spellcraft. You will NOT find cookie-cutter items at Effigy as you do at many other stores, but what you will find is an offering of one of the largest and finest selections of quality altar tools such as athames, wands, peytons and chalices. We also carry handmade divination tools such as scrying mirrors, pendulums and spirit/pendulum boards. We also offer custom jewelry, candles, incense, herbs, stones, crystals and much, much more. Effigy offers a full service apothecary with almost 200 fresh, not prepackaged, organic herbs, roots and resins that we will hand measure out and/or custom blend for you. I only carry items in the shoppe that I myself personally use, and almost all of our items are unique, handpicked and one-of-a-kind which is why some of our items are a little pricier than compared to other stores who carry generic items, however almost all of our items are completely exclusive and not available anywhere else. Mark hand makes his own potions, brooms, candles and cords and Our selection of stones and crystals are all completely handpicked, and based on size, color and clarity, you won't find a finer selection anywhere else. Effigy offers tarot readings, however, we do not believe in soliciting them. We are extremely old school in our beliefs and we feel people should request to have a reading done on their own accord. Since we opened in November of 2010, Effigy has brought and continues to bring the finest classes and workshops on a monthly basis, often with some of the best witches and authors in the world. Also, being a fact that Mark is an Initiated 3rd Degree Cabot Witch, we were given the honor of carrying all of Laurie Cabot's handmade products at Effigy, including Laurie's own spell kits, potions, oils and incense. Please feel free to stop by and visit us. You'll be impressed! "
 
Tarot readings are available on Saturdays and Sundays for anyone that is interested. We don't believe in "soliciting"  tarot readings, and we don t employ a "staff" of readers. In all honesty, all you do need is one reader who knows what they're doing, and our staff reader Donna has been reading tarot for over 30 years. Reservations are recommended but not necessary. Please call the Shoppe to schedule your weekend reading or for any information
