Calendar & Upcoming Events

Effigy will be closed on Fridays for the next several Fridays.  Please check the website or call the store before you head in. 

We are preparing for a new Witchcraft Class:

Witchcraft 101 - Wednesday, October 1, 2014 - 7:00 p.m.
Our Winter class is always a favorite and fills quickly.  Space is limited and class will be filled on a first-come first-serve basis.

The class runs for 10 consecutive weeks and covers all of the basics of Witchcraft, culminating in circle casting. We keep the number of class participants intimate to allow for one-on-one training.  Please call the store for detailed information.

We get quite a few applicants so we recommend that you call the store as soon as possible to reserve your place.

EXCITING NEWS!  Michael Pendragon and his partner, Carolyn, will be attending the Witch's Ball and will be here for the weekend!!!  We will be posting details about classes and readings with Michael and Carolyn in the upcoming weeks.

Michael is one of the best Astrological and Tarot readers in the country.  He has done readings for some of the most famous witches and authors in the world.  Carolyn is a widely known and acclaimed reader and psychic medium.  We are honored to have them be a part of our Samhain weekend!

This year, our ball falls right on Samhain! Doors open at 7:30 p.m. Those of you who know us know we won't sponsor anything unless we can put five stars on it, and no one does a Samhain Ball like we do! We have an all-you-can-eat buffet and full OPEN bar, along with desert and coffee. The Samhain Ritual will begin at 8:30 p.m.  We have one of the finest DJ's in Ct. (who worked John Travolta and Harrison Ford's birthday parties in NY) will be spinning songs all evening on one of Connecticut's largest dance floors. Trophies will be awarded for best costumes. This is a formal event so dress to impress. No jeans, sneakers or t-shirts. Suits and ties and evening gowns or cocktail dresses only. Please call us for additional information.  

Our authors travel from out of state to present their classes and workshops and we commit to a certain number of attendees.  Effigy is limited in seating space and we have had a huge response to our classes.  Unfortunately, we have had last minute cancellations for unpaid classes which leave unfilled space for people we have turned away.  Therefore, we are now requiring payment for classes upon sign-up and there are no refunds for classes, workshops or events. 
Effigy reserves the right to refuse admittance to ANY person or persons at the store or at any of it's workshops or events at it's own discretion.   Effigy also reserves the right to make changes to events and appearances at its own discretion.
