PALM HARBOR - The Witch’s Brew, a coffee and ice cream shop in historic downtown Palm Harbor, is celebrating six years in business along with Celestial Circle, a two-year-old metaphysical gift shop, on June 29.
A new activity this year is the debut of the first Metaphysical Bazaar from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. where anyone can sell or recycle used metaphysical books, gifts, jewelry, crystals and even handmade items in a swap meet type affair. The cost is $10 for a 7-foot by 7-foot space in the courtyard. Singer Bonnie Bowers will provide live music during the event and will be performing with percussionist Baaba Ray Herod. In case of rain, the bazaar will take place on Sunday from noon to 4 p.m.
All weekend long, customers will enjoy discounts on selected merchandise at Celestial Circle and register for drawings for door prizes. Samples of wine and ice cream will be offered, as well as drink specials at The Witch’s Brew. Herod will be setting up his full-size copper pyramid that visitors can sit in and experience Pyramid energy from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at no cost.
The party continues Saturday night with The Witch’s Brew’s House Band “The Defendants” who will be performing classic and newer rock from 8 to 11. Bowers and Herod will open the show at 6:30 p.m.
On Sunday, June 30, there will be a free presentation about Young Living Oils at 3 p.m. where participants can sample a variety of pure essential oils used for everyday living.
The Witch’s Brew, a magickally-themed café offering fair trade organic coffee, all-natural ice cream, and spirits (beer & wine) opened June 5th, 2007. The founders, Lesley Klein and Denise Karnes, conjured up this unique eclectic coffeehouse themed after Witchy paraphernalia. A “Wall of Best Witches” features famous film and TV witches like Samantha from Bewitched and Harry Potter.
Celestial Circle opened May 2011 by Gina Lawrence. Its slogan is Expanding Awareness. The shop offers a large selection of crystals, incense, candles, jewelry, books and other metaphysical resources that support the Human Spirit in its evolutionary process.
