This is simply the best witch store around. I make a beeline for it as soon as I arrive in Salem.

Click to enlarge any pic for a better look. Anyone who has followed me for a time knows that I collect only authentic witch items. I only buy quality. Put simply, there is a lot of junk out there. This store carries only quality and oak items.

Do you notice the book on the table? It is a reproduction of the Hocus Pocus spell book.

I bought my reproduction Practical Magic spell book here last year. They have another one in stock right now. The reproductions are blank so you can fill them in on your own. You can always look at the original which I have posted many times and copy some of those spells if you wish.

You can purchase blank spell books or spell books which already have spells and drawings in them.

I took some of these shots through the window so they are not very good. New England Magic carries spectacular stained glass pentagrams, ravens and fairies. And I have to mention, their prices are really great for the workmanship.

The quality of their crystal balls is some of the best I have seen.

You can barely see this but it is a hanging stained glass Pan.

It is right on Essex Street in Salem. New England Magic

Now let's go inside for a look. This is the first time the owner has allowed her store to be photographed. Fun!!!

Ahhhh...a witches Mecca. You can get a reading back in the nook in front of the black door. There are many one of a kind paintings by various artists.

They carry a wonderful selection of capes and hats.

They offer custom made spell books. You can see one on the book stand.

This sign used to hang in front of their old shop in Rockport.

Take a look at the books on the bottom shelf of the second cabinet. These are handmade in Italy and have gold leaf on the covers.

They carry very affordable BOS's as well. Now everyone knows where to buy a spell book.

Their assortment of products is exceptional. You can find just about anything you might need.

And they have an awfully cute pup named Pumpkin!

Who was only too happy to pose for me in the reading area.

And then ran off to visit each and every customer and welcome them to the store. Not a job for Teddy! Teddy would chase all of the customers away.

This sign was hand painted by one of the employees.

And look what I bought while I was there.

These books are made by Witches Moon and the quality is exceptional. Now you know why I am diggin' this store so much!

Look at the detail.

Wonderful paper and satin markers.

This is one hefty book. It must weigh ten pounds.

They told me they just started their online store. If there is anything you need just contact them. They are very friendly and extremely helpful.

I can't believe my trip is almost over. But I will return next October as I always do and New England Magic will be the first place I head to.

Tomorrow I will be traveling again so the Blog Tech will be doing a guest post about his time spent here in Salem. He took a lot of pictures which I have not yet seen so I look forward to reading it too!!!
