The store is built on 6+ acres of land... It used to be a Tree Farm - where a landscaper grew trees for planting in peoples gardens. We have row after row after row of oaks, maples, hawthorn, birch and more. We will be adding Hazel, Rowan, Elderberry and more also.
We have many silver and paper birches, our pond is a little flooded right now due to the melting snow - but it will recede soon.... We will harvest some wood (will the appropriate blessings) to carve into hand made products... We have a full woodwork shop including a lathe and carving equipment and a forge for iron working... We will have hand made ritual athames, blades, bolines, stangs, wands, offering bowls, chalices, besoms, staffs, witch hooks, runes, keppens, wind roarers, torcs and much much more... All made by actual witches following traditional correspondences and observing planetary timings.
In our Maple grove are a couple of deer statues that have been on the land for decades... In fact they are a local landmark. We will dress them up for each season. The grove is also home to 1000s of daffodils and will be an amazing display by the spring equinox.
Finaly.... The shop will be huge inside... 3400 square feet of store front and ritual rooms... The pic below was taken just before the siding went up and gives an idea of the scale of this beast.....
