Chill is in the air as it whips around the city of Salem. It’s that time of year when goblins and ghouls decent on the Witch City to celebrate all things Halloween. If ghastly souvenirs and costumes galore aren’t your thing then take a visit to HausWitch for your dose of the ethereal without the slice of tacky that is usually served up for all hallows eve in Salem.
Far from your average haunt in this cobble-stoned town, HausWitch exudes bright, warm light. Erica Feldmann started it all with a blog specializing in affordable interior design that was all done out of her apartment in Somerville. How did she go from blog to brick and mortar shop? She combined her love of design and her affinity for witches to create this fascinating shop. Talk about one smart chick!
What can you find in the shop? Home decor inspired by witchcraft, used and repurposed furniture and best of all, spell kits. These are sweet little kits that are designed to bring good vibes and energy into your home. With six different kits you can cover all your bases, whether looking to banish bad spirits, find a new pad, get some spring cleaning in or get all cozy for the upcoming winter. If you need some interior inspiration, Erica still does tiered interior consulting. Don’t worry if your budget is on the smaller side because she loves the creative challenge posed by limited budgets.
If you’re looking for a little something to take home and remind you of your time in colonial New England then look no further, HausWitch is where it’s at.
