Practical magic: Pink Moon Apothecary @ 2023 NE MLK.

In the space between Fetch Doggy Daycare and Tiny’s Coffee, between San Rafael and Tillamook Streets where the Union Rose clothing store was until it moved east, has risen the Pink Moon Apothecary: ‘practical magic for magically practical people':

From the Pink Moon website:

Pink Moon Apothecary is an old-fashioned folk magic shop.  We are available for custom fragrances and creations.  Mademoiselle Noelle offers readings using Tea-Leaf and Tarot cards as well as does more in depth Spiritual work with her clients using her Mediumship and Clairvoyant gifts by appointment.

Of all the fascinating items for sale in this cheerful, joyful shop, one stood out for me: amazing, handmade coconut soap. This soap is good enough to eat!

I was also pretty taken by a book for sale here, Hedgewitch: Spells, Crafts, and Rituals for Natural Magick.

For what it’s worth, here’s a photo of a lovely dog resting outside Pink Moon & Tiny’s:
