Yesterday was our full day in the city proper, and we had fun, southern Witchy style! After meeting some of our Faery kin for lunch (Ethiopian- yum!), we headed to Miller's Rexall for some southern conjure. Used to be (back in the day), many hoodoo folks bought up cheap franchises in order to get the business licenses to open up shop. One of the common ones were drug stores. You could get aspirin, bandages, and money-drawing floor wash all in one place. Miller's Rexall is the last of its kind.

I heard a lot about Miss Bev before arriving at the shop (who is the resident root worker there), and she did not disappoint. When you walk in, she can read you like a book, I tell you. She often gives strongly worded advice and points out things you need to work on (even before you ask!). I watched her with several of our cohort, and it was astounding how well she can read people she does not know.
Afterwards, we toured a bit of the city, stopping in Little Five Points (Rowan had fun watching the skateboarders there while we had iced mochas) before heading to a delightful southern-style meal at Mary Mac's Tea Room. On the table, were unsweetened and sweet tea in pitchers and the server offered us some pot likker and cornbread while we waited for our food. It was salty goodness that Rowan loved.
Today, we head to a fantastic cabin in the woods north of here by a river. We are having a retreat where we will have ritual for the esbat (full moon) and the sabbat (Oestara) both. I'll be sure and get pictures!
