Getting, Giving and Generosity


Holiday 
6pents Whimsical6pents   One card that represents giving is the Six of Pentacles. Right now is a big Six of Pentacles time for  many of us because it's the holiday season. Shopping is fun for some and not-so-much for others. Personally, I like to avoid the malls. A friend of mine, however, dives in with glee. He tells me that shopping energizes him and the more people the merrier. How about you? Malls? Online shopping? Something in between?

Well, what about those small, independently-owned stores? U.S. Games Systems, Inc. would like to give a big shout-out to the independent retailers. Without them, many of us wouldn't be able to pick up that newest Tarot deck or unusual deck of cards. And aren't some people just hard to buy for? Who is the hardest person on your holiday list to shop for? Do you use Tarot to help you come up with a gift idea? Maybe pulling a card with the intent "What does (person's name) want the most for a holiday gift" would give you an idea. If you try it, let us know!

Please do let us know where you shop. We'd love to hear about your favorite indie stores in your community. Feel free to share their website or concrete store address here. Let's spread the love for those who help us find what we enjoy.

Cards shown are the 6 of Pentacles from the Whimsical Tarot and the 6 of Pentacles from the Deviant Moon Tarot.

    First of all, I would like to give you a BIG Thank you for recognizing the small, independent store. With that TY, goes a big hug too!
    As the owner of two full scale New Age stores for the past 20 years, Mystical Horizons http://www.mysticalhorizons.com and facebook link: http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Mystical-Horizons/191949556942 we do specialize in meeting the customer’s need for New Age and Tarot supplies. Unlike the Big Box stores, my business partner & I go to Tradeshows, discuss the newest items with our distributors and read Speciality reatailing magazines that cater to the New Age business. By doing so, we keep up with the newest products for our loyal customers. We also have a warmth about serving our customers because we understand what people are looking for, live the New Age lifestyle, and we really develop friendship relationships with our customer base. Do you really feel that kind of love at Walmart? LOL
    At Mystical Horizons, not only do we sell books and Tarot decks, we offer psychic tarot readings in person and by phone, classes, major Author events, Concerts with New Age Artists and spiritual journeys to Sedona, AZ and Psychic Cruises to Bermuda and 4 Psychic Fairs a year!
    Thank you for shopping at your local New Age store, the stores are there to serve you and your money stays in the community!

    Here in Austin, TX, I love going to a local store called “Whole Life Books”. It’s on S. Lamar and has great energy. Tons of books on all sorts of metaphysical stuff as well as a fairly decent selection of Tarot decks.
    Address is:
    Whole Life Books

    Thanks to the loyalty of so many independent retail stores,like Mystical Horizons here in CT, U.S. Games Systems has been successful for over 42 years. It’s nice to hear from stores and customers who enjoy tarot as much as I do.

    Miracles of Joy, in Lewisville,TX is a nice little store, full of food for the soul. They have a very diverse selection of Tarot. http://www.galactichealing.org/
    The Magick Cauldron in Houston, Tx is also a fantastic place to meet and greet people of like minds. The Tarot selection here is great. http://www.magickcauldron.com/
    In Galveston, Tx there is the Witchery. I am still trying to make my way here. I have good friends that do readings here and others that have stumbled into the quaint little store. http://witcheryonline.com/
    Oh, and WOW!! Stuart Kaplan!!:-)

    Whenever I visit my sister down in Durham, NC I always visit Morgan’s Imports in BrightLeaf Square. I was drawn in because they have cool kitchen gadgets, decorating and gift items etc. But I got really excited when I saw a lot of games and tarot decks from U.S. Games there.
    If you’re ever down there check it out.

    I encourage people in the NE to be sure to visit Brid’s Closet in Cornwall, NY; Whimsies Incognito in Tarrytown, NY; and Imagicka in Binghampton; and Envision Crystal in Port Jefferson. If you’re in California, be sure to swing by Sacred Mists in Napa! They are owned by kind, delightful and helpful individuals. They are also supporters and carriers of “Tarot of the Boroughs.” For that, I am eternally thankful!
