At some point in your life as a Pagan, you’ll probably have moments where you look at a book on your shelf and think, “I will never read that again.” Or perhaps there’s a deck of Tarot cards that you own, but have never really connected with. Maybe you’ve got an athame that’s outlived its appeal, and you’ve replaced it with something new. So what’s a Pagan to do with all that stuff?
Why not organize a magical swap meet?
Look at it this way – if you’ve got a dozen things you don’t want or need, and you have nine friends who have a dozen things they don’t want or need, all of a sudden, there’s a lot of magical tools and other items out there that could benefit from new homes. Organizing a swap meet allows you to re-home your items you don’t use any more, and it also gives you a chance to pick up some new stuff that you didn’t have before. If you want to use your swap as a fundraiser, and treat it as a metaphysical garage sale, it’s a good way to raise money for charitable causes.
