Not what I was expecting in a witch shop at all. Not a lot of atmosphere and sparse products. Reasonable prices, but I was disappointed with the shop itself.

Rick Watson is fantastic. I have never believed in Psychics or any of that, and do not understand how it works. All I can say is Rick has been a big help to me, and amazingly all his predictions for me are coming true..
