Thanks to Erik Davis of Pop Arcana for a cool write-up at HiLoBrow on the Lucky Mojo Curio Co. He did a swell job and we are pleased to be noticed by the arcane press:

Thanks! The recognition was great. The funniest error in the article is the statement that nagasiva has dreads! He has long, thin, brown hair. No dreads! He does braid his beard -- but how could a reporter confuse beard-braids with dreadlocks? LOL!

The photo of me is by our very own Robin Petersen.

Another photo of a bunch of us, including Robin, with the angel can be found here:

http://www.luckymojo.com/lucky-mojo-cre ... -24-10.jpg

Notice nagasiva's beard -- not dreads, a braided beard.

Interestingly, the reporter Erik Davis has allowed nagasiva to send in corrections to the article, and, this being the web, where permanent change is possible, the line about nagasiva wearing his hair in "dreads" may soon go bye-bye, which will doubtless confuse anyone reading the article who follows this thread.

I loved it, it filled in a lot of gaps about LM and you... excellent. It does catch possibly the one thing that personally ATTRACTS me to hoodoo more than anything else: the kitsch. There's a sort of Pee Wee Herman quality to it that is just endearing to me, as a comic book and stage magic fanatic. The usual "pagan" stuff tends to turn me off because of it's aesthetic.

Fantastic article... makes me want to take a road trip RIGHT NOW.

Wall Street Journal 12/28/2010 mentions Lucky Mojo Curio Co.

Unread post by catherineyronwode » Tue Dec 28, 2010 12:35 am

Hello, all --

The Wall Street Journal has just published an article on hoodoo and the internet which mentions the Lucky Mojo Curio Co. and other retailers, and features a slide show of pictures taken around our shop. Among the photos are two of Tracy McClendon and Aidan O'Reilly-Kelly dressing and lighting candles, a nice image of our shop manager Robin Petersen's home altar, and some weirdly "artsy" shots that were taken around the shop and the church, of which my favourite is the silhouette of me with Sophie, our Portuguese Water Dog. Here's the link:

I'm so proud of Lucky mojo, and I'm glad that they stated Hoodoo as it is rather than making it seem like some demonic, witchcraft that people make it out to be. I love the woman in the article that people say shes crazy, but she doesnt care.

I love the coverage of the historical origins as well as he distinction from Voodoo. Great article, and I hope there are many more to come.

Great Pictures. The photography is very rich and beautiful.
I love the one showing the lab and all the bottles and Heidi making up incense powder.
The crystal balls shot is a close second.

(What a great paper catalog those photos could make - I'd gladly pay to own a Super Lucky Mojo Product Catalog in paper format. I know it's a pipe dream, though. But the idea takes my mind back to the conjure catalog I used to look at as a 12 year old.. It had such a wonderful scent in the ink. .. Ahh the memories! And ahh how I wish I had not lost track of it).

Pagan Newswire Collective Article on Lucky Mojo

Unread post by catherineyronwode » Sat Mar 30, 2013 3:10 am

This article by the Pagan Newswire Cllective is an illustrated account of a visit to Lucky Mojo in February 2011.

http://pncminnesota.com/2011/02/25/hoodoo-pilgrimage/

Lots of pictures -- and an interview with yours truly.

They really showed a lot of the shop and caught the flavour of our weirdness! (This was before the Great Repainting, so the shop looks a bit different now, but you'll get the idea.

Thanks, PNC-Minnesota, for the post about us!
