Calendar & Upcoming Events

Cleansing Class - a modest $15.00 donation to benefit local animal shelters.
Sunday, June 4, 2017 - 12:00 p.m.

Mark conducts these classes several times a year and we are the only shoppe we know of that offers this class for a nominal donation to benefit our animal friends. Many other businesses require a substantial fee to perform a cleansing at your residence or place of business. Since cleansing/smudging is something that should be done on a regular basis, we would rather give you instruction on how to perform cleansing yourself.  The proper techniques for cleansing and smudging will be discussed as well as the use of various candles, resins, herbs, incense and oils. This class is a lot of fun and runs approximately 90 minutes. These classes fill quickly.  Please call the shoppe to reserve your seat. 

A PARANORMAL OVERNIGHT AT THE LIZZIE BORDEN BED AND BREAKFAST IN FALL RIVER, MASSACHUSETTS ON
FRIDAY, JUNE 9 -- SATURDAY, JUNE 10

Mark has planned and privately booked a paranormal overnight at The Lizzie Borden Bed & Breakfast in Fall River, Mass. on Friday, June 9th - - Saturday, June 10th.  Along with Witchcraft, Mark has been conducting paranormal research for nearly 40 years working with world famous organizations and has traveled  the United States doing investigations and research at some of the most famous hauntings in the world such as Waverly Hills Sanatorium in Kentucky, West Virginia Penitentiary, The Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum in West Virginia, The Bell Witch in Tennessee, the Mothman in West Virginia and The Jersey Devil in New Jersey. Mark has stayed at the Borden Home and conducted research there more than a 10 times over the past 20 years and knows the house and history inside and out. We did the Borden house last year with a group of investigators and had such a great time that we decided to do a second one again this year. The Borden house was the scene of the famous unsolved axe murders of Andrew Borden and his wife Abby in June of 1892 and is considered one of the 10 most haunted places in the United States. The house has been featured on such TV shows as Ghost Hunters and Paranormal State and  has been featured on TLC, The History Channel and The Travel Channel, We have privately booked the house overnight for our group EXCLUSIVELY from Friday 4:00 pm afternoon until 11:00 am the following morning, and we will be conducting research all through the night through the entire house. The overnight includes a pizza party on Friday evening and a full breakfast that the Borden family had on the morning of the murders on June 4, 1892. On Saturday morning, we will travel to Maplecroft, which is the residence that Lizzie Borden had relocated to after her acquittal. We will also travel to Lizzie Borden's actual gravesite and the Borden family plot in Oak Grove Cemetery. Attendees are encouraged to bring along whatever equipment they choose for investigations such as cameras, recording devices and any type of divination tools they select in order to capture the various psychic activity that occurs in the house. We will meet at the Borden home on Friday afternoon at 4:00 pm and transportation will be the responsibility of the attendees. The house is approximately 2 hours from Effigy. There will be a class meeting for those participating at Effigy on Sunday, June 4th at 9:00 am to go over the complete layout of the house and the history of the murders as well as the various paranormal activities that have occurred there. We will also discuss what to expect, along with investigation information actual instructions.
