Our Shop and Covid-19

Thank you first of all to all of you who support our tiny hole-in-the-wall witchy shop! With everything going on with the current pandemic, I just wanted to update you on what this means for our physical shop, and what our plans are.

  • We are still open. As much as we might wish it was otherwise, the Boulevard has very little foot traffic in good times. We just about never hit a capacity that falls under current guidelines. If you come to the store, it will most likely be just you and one of us who runs the store.
  • We are doing extra cleaning. We will occasionally be closing early for our physical and mental health as well, but most days we will be open until at least 6pm.
  • We can bring your purchase to your car. Don’t want to come in? Pull up front and give us a wave and we’ll be happy to help!
  • We can deliver locally. Until any “stay at home” order is put in place, we can deliver in Eden, Reidsville, or Reedy Fork. Basically, along my route home. 😉 Feel free to message us on Facebook or send an email to crookedtreehousegifts@gmail.com to arrange this.
  • We can ship straight to you. Our web store is busily being added to, and we’ll ship anywhere.

We started this little shop as a place for local community, and we love all of you who have supported us and shared in that love. We expect coming times to be hard, but as long as we can keep paying our rent we will be keeping our business running, whether it is open for traffic or mailing things out. We’re sticking with this month to month as best we can.

Should a “stay home” order be issued for our state… well, Jac lives upstairs, so we can still ship! And I’ll be doing online support, communication, and blogging from home.

And I do also plan to do a lot of article writing! I know the boredom that can set in when stuck at home, so for those using this time to practice their magical studies I will be writing what I can. Even if you don’t have money to buy from us, reading our blog does help support our shop through our advertisers. So if you have any topics you really want to learn more about, let us know! Or, are you bored and want to write too? Catching up on your witchy reading? Make your own magical items? We would love to include your book or deck reviews, magical DIYs, or just pitch your idea to us! We can not pay for articles, but we will happily include any links to your blog or store.

Finally, just a little note for the health of us all: I have seen a lot of prayers, spells, and wishes for healing the world in the last week, and that is where we shine. I also know many of our readers and visitors are practitioners of or interested in alternative and traditional medicines. While I believe all of this helps us and helps our Earth, please do not ignore modern medicine during this pandemic. We need everyone to take proper measures in order to keep as many of us healthy as possible.

Healing energies to everyone, and stay safe,

Cynthia

It’s Alive! (We’ve launched our new web store)

Hello my lovely supporters of the Crooked Treehouse!

Things have been brewing in our tiny little shop lately. You might have noticed that I’ve been writing a lot more consistently for our blog lately. That’s been one step taken lately to help support the Treehouse. If you’ve been by in person, you probably have noticed a couple of things:

  • We’re tiny. We like our little hole-in-the-wall witchy shop, but we’d love to expand! We have not given up on our dream/goal of buying our building so that we could expand the shop to about twice its current size, add class space, etc.
  • While we are serious about supporting the historic Boulevard, it does not have the consistent traffic to help us achieve that dream.

So here is another step towards that goal – today, I launch our brand new web store!

We still have a lot of products to add, but it’s a step in having a much greater reach. So please, take a moment, shop around, and share our blog and store with your witchy friends! Every bit helps us be a greater part of our community.

But wait, there’s more!
