Another site by Michael Bluejay...

Magick Supplies. I set up this site for a friend, trying to make it exceptionally easy to use. I aggressively minimized the amount of clicking and scrolling it takes to get around the site, and to check out. The shop has magic oils, deity oils, incense, dream pillows, massage oils, and the like, for those who like those sorts of things.
