Who Knew Shopping Could Be This Much Fun?

I had so much fun today. Guess what I did?

My sister in law and I spent quite a bit of time going through Tarot and Oracle decks and kits, and ordered about 40 or more different decks for our online store. Although the store isn't up and running yet - April 1st is our official start date - we should have boxes of cards showing up on our doorstep later this week.

My favourite find was Ciro Marchetti's "Legacy of the Divine Tarot." (Ryan talked about it here.) I have his "Guilded Tarot" and we have ordered some of each deck. I think one of these may be staying with me....



I also really liked these "Spirit of the Wheel" cards. I am interested in learning more about Shamanism and Native Spirituality, and these cards grabbed me. So we ordered some of these too.



If you are looking for some great Tarot info, do check out Lyon's Tarot Den - she has super info and readings for you! Also Lizzy, from Lizzy's Logic does a Tarot Tuesday post each week.

As soon as the decks come in, I'm going to grab two (not telling which ones!) and do a giveaway. So check back - by about Friday I should have them in my hands. Looking forward to sharing them with you!

Thats the great thing about owning your own store...first pick of the good stuff!!!! I used to have my own used book store, and I loved checking in, and picking the books I would get to read first! LOL

I use the Legacy of the Divine tarot deck as my reading deck and it is fabulous! I love how the dark-bordered images are so light-infused!

how exciting.. can not wait to see your store... I have been itching to purchase a new deck and I think I may just have to do so around the first of April.... so excited for you...

You know, if you want to advise people on their choices, you must inform yourself! I predict many happy divinations to come ;-)

Legacy!!! Beautiful Deck, if I didnt already have it, I would have bought it from you ;)

Michelle said...

I want that Legacy deck!!!! I am so excited for you!! I remember when I worked as a manager at Crabtree and Evelyn I used to be able to buy all kinds of things for the store. That was the best part. You guys will do fantastic! xoxo

Lyon said...

This is awesome, Rue! I agree with Ryan, I can't wait to see what you picked out and if I have some cash around at the time, I will totally buy a deck from you. I can *always* come up with an excuse to buy a new deck if it catches my eye after all. ;-) I'm very excited for you - this is an awesome time. And hey - thanks for the plug! That is always appreciated. :D *mwah*!

Sara said...

Love oracle cards. I'm looking forward to checking out your store when it is all up and running. What fun you must have had picking and choosing the decks. I love the look of the spirit of the wheel deck.

Rue! I am doing a give-away of Sacred Space conference stuff. Could you do a quick plug for me so that I can get lots of people in the mix? I would so appreciate it!

these look absolutely beautiful. i am especially encaptured by the shamanistic one as well!

Corrin said...

They aren't tarot cards but "Healing Cards" by Caroline Myss, are really beautiful and intricately illustrated i think your customers would love them : D (also your blog is *sofun*)

Rue said...

Thanks so much, all you lovely folks, for your enthusiasm! Courier co. reports the cards will be in tomorrow - yay!

Ryan - I didn't order that deck, but checked, and it is available. I'll order a few of those when we re-order (which may be in a few weeks as we've sold a few decks already) as they look pretty interesting!

Corrin - we did order some of those "Healing Cards." We ordered a nice selection of different sorts of decks, as some people aren't drawn to Tarot. Thanks for stopping by!

I cannot WAIT until your store opens!

Cora said...

I've used the same tarot deck for 13 years and then a few years ago I bought another one that has Etruscan art on it. I LOVE looking at new decks. The art work is beautiful!

I'm really looking forward to your store opening! I just got my first Tarot deck as a starter/learning kit but I would LOVE a personal one. Maybe I'll come to you!
