Salem...Day Number 1

I love the old homes that surround the square in Salem.


Teddy likes the park.


She could spend the whole day there chasing squirrels.


All the restaurants have spooky versions of items on their menus.


Crow Haven Corner. This used to be owned by Laurie Cabot the official witch of Salem. She sold it and has another place which I will get to today!


Lots of fun places to dine.


The Blog Tech and his sister decide which direction to head off to.


If you want your fortune told, this is the place to visit!


This event is held each October.


There is plenty of mystical art for sale all over town.



I hope to visit this store today. It was closed yesterday when I was there. They carry the best spell books around.


The down side of Salem this time of year. Bus loads of school kids everywhere.


All sorts of characters abound.


Salem shirts for sale on every corner.


All of the activities are advertised in unique ways.


I know quite a few people I should buy this shirt for.


The local jeweler carries Mariposa Halloween serving pieces.



This is my favorite clothing store in town.


The place to shop if you are a witch about to be married.


A fine assortment of capes.


You can pick up a broom if you need one. Stop by and check them out. Signatures 181 Essex Street, Salem .


I might have to go back and buy this sign.


They have a large assortment of unique Halloween items.


Some of which will be ending up in my future giveaways.


Watch for a new giveaway on Saturday.


This shop carries witchy aprons with matching hats.


Witchy wines.


Witchy signs.


*More tomorrow from spooky town!

You're in my neck of the woods! In fact right now I am sitting in my office just a mere mile or so from Salem! It is a great time of year in that town, but busy busy busy! If you live around here, as I do, the traffic and crowds can be quite the headache, but it is still such a fun time to be there!!!

Aunt Amelia's Attic said...

Ohhhhhh, I want! I want! I want! ,-)

I want a Witchy apron and matching hat. And I want one of those brooms. And sweet Witchy wine of course. And a cape, but with a hood on it please. And that faux black velvet Witchy hat. And... And.... And..... -giggles-

Again thank you for taking me along!

Gentle hugs...

Jaz, thanks so much for sharing Salem with us!
Which store has the best spell books? I was a little confused, and would love to get one of those!

Did you get to Laurie's shop?

Enjoy!

Just discovered your blog and I am positively in love with it! Also slightly jealous that you get to Salem every year.;) We go about every two to three and it's the most amazing time.
Fantastic pictures please keep posting them so we can all pretend we are there.

Blessings,
Mel

Glad you are having so much fun!

I love the Piss and Moan t-shirts. I could use a gross of those and take care of most of my Christmas shopping.

Looking forward to tomorrow.

The cottage by the Crane Lake said...

I guess that Salem is a great town to visit any time, but it must be fantastic close to Halloween!

I know rather many that I could give such a T-shirt to also :-) :-) :-)

I love those different stores! I don´t think we have many that sells capes and spell books over here. I think I could walk around in them all day :-)

Have a great day!
Christer.

I was lucky enough to go to Salem last year. I was on a cruise so I didn't get enough time though. Your post made me want to go back. I love that town. Would love to go at Halloween time.

Great photos.

Teddy does look happy at the park!

I'm having a wonderful time on your Salem visit!

Blessings and have fun!

Guillaume said...

Great pics, as usual. I want to visit Salem one day, although for me it is synonymous of a dark time in history more than Halloween festivities.

petoskystone said...

Incipient Wings said...

I miss Salem! My friends and I were going to go this year, but the place we like to lodge in was all booked... definitely going next year though!

sorry if this posts twice - I posted earlier but I don't see it. I got an amazing reading from a woman in salem - she worked in the Pyramid book shop and her name was beverly anderson. If you can get a reading from her, I recommend you do!

Renee of the Fae said...

Oh! I hope you were able to pop by Angelica of the Angels! That's my go-to place for readers whenever I'm in town. *~_^* Also, thanks for showing the signs for the Psychic Fair! I had totally forgotten!
