Pagans, wiccans, and witches rejoice! A new spooky shop has opened in Grimsby
9th October 2017
A witchy shop specialising in spells, potions, and healing crystals has opened for business in the heart of Grimsby - just in time for Halloween.
Curious Cobwebs, in Wellowgate, offers potion supplies and beautiful gifts to those who dabble in Pagan and Wiccan practices.
Amanda Knight-Waller, 42, owner of Curious Cobwebs, decided to make her first venture into retail after her four-year-old triplets reached school age.
She said: “It was my husband who found the shop – I was quite lucky actually because it dates back to 1792.
“Originally, I was just going to have a stall at my sister’s shop Vintage Lincs in Cleethorpes, but it’s got such a good feel to it this shop.
“It’s been really amazing so far – we’ve been busy and I’ve met some lovely, wonderful people from such different walks of life.”
Amanda sells witchcraft supplies, spells, cauldrons, broomsticks, crystals and tarot cards alongside brewing her very own ‘potions’.
She said: “My sleep potion is the most popular so far, I’ve had customers come back to tell me that it’s worked.
“It contains rose and mace, and you put it on your temples, neck, pulse points, and the soles of your feet.
“I’m not a licenced aromatherapist – I just read constantly, I’m always learning.
“I give out a safety support advice sheet with each potion – used incorrectly, they could be harmful.”
Amanda has been involved in this lifestyle since she received her first pack of tarot cards at 14 years old.
She said: “It’s a way of life for a lot of people – we believe in Mother Nature, and we use natural things from the earth to heal.
“I have been involved in this lifestyle since I was 14, when I was given my first set of tarot cards – I then started making my own potions out of plants and became really interested in astrology.”
Curious Cobwebs is open Tuesday 10am – 3pm, Thursday and Friday 10am – 4pm and some Saturdays. Visitors are advised to check the the shop's Facebook page for weekend opening times.
