The end of a journey brings the start of a future.

"Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end." ~ Seneca

Its been a wonderful six years and Cloaked Realm ~ Pagan Emporium has been through many incarnations. We started out with just a small table filled with sterling silver jewelry at a fair to a full homebased shop bursting at the seams. As we step into our new future we can't help but thank those who helped and supported us along the way and not forgetting all the wonderful customers who walked through our doors.

This is not a time to mourn but rather celebrate the new steps that this little shop is about to undertake. So for that reason Cloaked Realm will be hosting one last Witchy Ware Party on Sunday May 30th, 2010 from Noon to 6PM. We will be serving refreshments and of course wonderful conversation. AND in order to thank all those who have been a part of this journey we will be having a THANK YOU SALE! Everything 20% off (excluding consignment). That's right, even statuary and books will be 20% off. Plus everyone walking through the door will receive a free gift (and a really special gift for the first ten people)

Hope to see you all there!



I promised an update so, here goes.

As of June 1, 2010 Cloaked Realm will cease the homebased operations. We will no longer be open Sundays. That's because we will be taking possession of our new store front! Yay!

Our new store will be located at 355 Langside just north of Portage right beside Hungover Empire! So exciting! One of my favorite stores! As well with this new step we decided a name change was in order to bring new life and celebrate change.

Book and Curiosity Shop

We hope our new name will appeal to a greater audience while still holding true to our Pagan roots.

Lastly, while the location is fabulous the space is in need of major repair. So we expect to have at least a few months dedicated to renovations but we are planning to open the shop full time at the beginning of September 2010. We'll be having a huge grand opening party so keep coming back for more updates!

“What we call the beginning is often the end. And to make an end is to make a beginning. The end is where we start from.” ~ T.S. Eliot
