The nearest major airport for international flights is probably San Francisco (SFO).
San Francisco is about an hour away from Lucky Mojo.

take care,

Shopping at the Lucky Mojo Store

Unread post by snake » Thu May 14, 2009 2:02 pm

If I were to drive up to the Lucky Mojo store would I find everything on the shelves the same as it's listed in the catalog online? Could I just pick up spell kits and get fixed bottle spells? If I wanted a fixed mojo hand would that be done while I was at the store?

Hi Snake,

Visiting the Lucky Mojo store is a wonderful experience!
You will find spell kits, oils, sachet powders and incenses on the shelves, along with herbs, minerals, and curios and much, much more!
When you say you want a "fixed" mojo hand, do you mean you want a normal mojo hand to be fixed for you or do you want a custom made mojo hand? I am not sure what the answer to that question is, but if its a custom hand you are after you would want to call ahead because the making of a custom hand might have some timing restrictions and not be something you could get right there and then that day.

good luck and happy shopping :-)

Everything we sell online is available in the shop -- plus items not listed online. If you have an extensive shopping list, you can use the shopping cart and order some things ahead, so will be sure to have made them by the time you arrive, and note in the comments field that you want the goods marked "HOLD FOR PICK-UP" -- that way we'll have everything on the list on hand, and you can shop for other items when you get here. If you want a mojo bag made with your own hair, handwriting sample, etc. in it, or a bottle spell fixed for you, you can ask us to make it while you wait. Just be aware that we can't quickly make 40 things while you wait. :-)

I made my first trip to the Lucky Mojo store today and I came home full of happy. I was greeted by a beautiful dog and a very nice gentleman, who's name I didn't get. I loved being able to go through and touch and smell everything and see where the magic happens. The little church where the candles are lit was gorgeous and I would not hesitate to have candles lit there for myself. A very sweet and knowledgeable man, who's name I can't remember, helped me out, dressed my candle and fixed my attraction bottle. They dress candles better than any other shop I've seen. He had the most helpful advice and the candle dressing was obviously very powerful. I think I need to get in the habit of going to the store to shop instead of ordering online. The store has wonderful energy and I love the puppy!!

I'm contemplating a mainland trip and am pondering stopping in California on the way back to Hawaii to visit the LM store, and you're making such a stop sound very, very tempting indeed. I've been a LM customer for 5-6 years and have always wanted to visit the actual store quite badly!

Laughingd0g did an amazing job! It is really helpful to people that can't get to the store to see it. Especially the Mission Church. It was wonderful to actually see candles burning inside and outside. I couldn't believe how many candles were burning it was a lot! What do you do with peoples petitions and pictures that they send do you fold them up and put them under the candle or tape it to the back? You know I have a friend that thought that they were not really burning candles for people that they just wait and write something down. I didn't think that, but she did. This should really help people that are nay sayers or that need proof. The tour was very cool. Was the skeleton real? If it was it's probably the first and last person who ever tried to shop lift from the store, lol!

Very helpful indeed, Thank You Laughingd0g! You just answered a lot of questions and I appreciate that you were respectful of people while filming.

I saw it today and I think that it was SO helpful! Now we know that it's not some warehouse. there are prepackaged ready to go stuff, but you also see somebody preparing some incense, so for people that are nay sayers here is your proof it's a real store.

The helpful folks in the store

Every time I've visited the store I've always had employees put down what they were doing to help me out, suggest spells, fix things, dress candles, walk me around and point out items on the shelf, etc. Is it appropriate to tip the employees in the shop?

Hi Snake.

That is a GREAT question. I often wonder that myself. I know there is envelopes at the counter that you can leave donations. I have been thinking that I may just buy everyone a coke and smile the next time I go in. I am due to go in on Feb. 6th.

You know what would be cool? To dress the coke bottle with blessing oil, because I want them to be blessed! Oh! I am so creative, and I can be funny, too! LOL!

LM staff always got a spot in my prayers,

Tips are always apprecited - some folks tip the readers or the candle setters. Sometimes clients send or bring in candies or floral arrangments. We love being given treats!

I find something new in the LM site almost everyday. I have seen the pictures of The Missionary Church inside and out, but I did not know this until today:

http://www.missionary-independent.org/b ... hurch.html

I had been wondering for a while about the design of the building and the creative idea behind the size, colors, build, etc.

I enjoyed reading and seeing "the renovation" of the Church.

Have a great day, All!!!

Yep, that takes me back in time -- fall of 2006!

The church has seen a lot of use since then. I read tarot cards in there 5 days a week, and Elvyra Love reads in there on the two days a week that i am off. Many thousands of candles have been lit for clients in the church since Consecration Day, and many a spell cast on the altar, for this is where i dress and pray over the sterling silver protection amulets i make for my clients.

Thanks for bringing up the memories!

Triplethreat:

You found my special happy-place pages here on the site. I LOVE to look at the pictures on that page and was quite thrilled when I found them. My wife and I are looking to move very soon and yearn for some land, chickens, out buildings, etc...so the pictures of the church, etc bolster my spirits!

I will attest to the sight of the Church and Shop in person, it's mighty incredible and has been my wife and I's vacation spot now for two years. Birthdays, holidays, get away from the city days...you name it! We have fallen in love with the surrounding area and have a blast every time we are there. We even spent our honeymoon deep in the woods about 15 minutes away from the shop. Magical. Tranquil.

Thank you for posting your thoughts on that page. One of my favorites!

Good luck to you.

Visiting Lucky Mojo Q

Unread post by ghostsong » Sun Aug 15, 2010 10:30 pm

I'm terribly excited and on my way up the coast (right now I'm in Monterey). Come Wednesday or Thursday I'll be in Forestville for reasons I'm sure you can guess. I'm on this "vacation up the coast" along with my parents, who are coming along with me to Lucky Mojo as well, I'm hoping they'll enjoy hiking in the surrounding area or something. Anyway, I'm sure I didn't have to start a thread to ask this question... but I seem to be doing that any way (maybe I'm just hear to share my sheer excitement for being on my way to LM!). Getting to the question - At some point I hope to take Cat's Correspondence Course but as of right now I'm just heading to the shop to... shop. This will be my first purchase at Lucky Mojo (surprising considering how much time I spend on the web site) and I am just wondering, because you have to make a certain amount of purchases at LM before Cat considers you for the course, do I let whoever is checking me out know that I want to at some point take the course? Or should I notify cat? Sorry if this is a dumb question, like I said, just excited. :)

Hey, ghostsong -- i hope to see you when you show up at the shop.

If you want to be signed up for the newsletter (and get the monthly discount coupons) and build up a supply of things you will need to take the course, just let whoever writes up your order know that you want to fill out the name, address, and email portion of the order form. (Otherwise you will be listed as a "walk-in" and get no pre-course credit for your order. Also, talk to anyone (or me) about what you need to order -- you need to make at least four orders over a period of time, but the purchases have to cover a set series of types of products, because i cannot teach you about bath crystals if you've never seen bath crystals, or about incense if you've never seen incense.

Be sure to stop by the church when you come to shop, and pick up your free souvenir Churcfh Fan.

You will have an amazing time! The Church Fans are beautiful and the entire grounds are spectacular. I also wanted to let you know that your parents might love to go hiking in Armstrong Redwoods State Park located in Guerneville, just minutes away from Forestville. It is located at 17000 Armstrong Woods Road
Guerneville, CA 95446 and is really a treat to see.

Good luck and have a fantastic time! You will adore the shop...

That sounds great Joseph, I will be sure to tell my parents about that beautiful sounding hike. Thanks for letting me know, and I just know I'll adore the shop... I've already been in awe just gazing at the pictures (though I didn't look at them all, I wanted to leave some of it to surprise).

Hi Ghostsong -
Just want to second Ritual Sound on Armstrong Woods as a nice hiking spot for your parents.
Was just there (and at the shop) this past month and hiked up the east trail. That one is 2-3 hours to walk and you'll have lots of time to shop and visit at the store! There are longer and shorter hikes too, of course.

You will love the experience of LM - the flowers along the path, the church, the sounds and smells of mortars and pestles as the staff makes the products we all so enjoy - have a blast!

Hi,
I made a thread in the "Help with your Situation" subforum here, asking for advice on what to buy at the Lucky Mojo Curio Co. I got a lot of great advice from forum members here, and wanted to share my feelings about visiting the shop with you all.

First, Catherine is a most gracious host, I literally felt like some kind of VIP as soon as I entered the store. I was lucky enough to get to meet and have some very cool chats with Catherine while I was there, I am very grateful to have had the chance. A very warm and wise lady, that Catherine.

I was also quite taken by how friendly and truly helpful everyone working in the store seemed to be...none of that sighing while "helping" you out stuff that can be all too common in most customer assistance type situations...and this is something I had noted already any time I have ever called LM, the people were not just willing to help, but they actually seemed happy to help.

Okay, now about the store itself.... I did totally lose my sh*t as soon as I walked in the door, as I had predicted in my other thread. :D It's hard not to, there are so many things to look at, candles, strange and intriguing curios, oils, bottles, super cool jewelery and beads....even just the soaps were so interesting....

I had my lists of items to buy and tried hard to stay focused on finding them and putting them in my wooden tray, and I did try to keep within the set limit I wanted to spend, but that was a joke....I knew I'd need some leeway and just went ahead and grabbed all of the things I knew I wanted and needed. I had people waiting for me in the car, so there was that hanging over my head the whole time, so my advice to anyone who goes to the store is to not have any kind of time limit, there is just so much to see. I could have spent at least another solid hour in the store, and as it was I did spend over an hour!! So, realistically, give yourself maybe a couple of hours to be there to get a good gander at everything.

While I did get all of the roots, oils, powders and other odd bits that I wanted/needed, I saw so many other things that I know I am going to have to buy, especially the skull bead Mala, that is the coolest set of skull beads I have ever seen, and I am an afficianado of skull beads. :D There were also these beautiful carved fish beads, very Pisces looking, two fish sort of in a circle together, that I am going to buy myself. And so many other items and curiosities that I caught glimpses of while I tried to stay focused on my lists.

So, anyway, Thank you so much, Catherine for such a warm welcome, and thank you to all of your staff for their help and their patience and their knowledge. I had such a wonderful time. Please, any members here who might be close enough to visit LM, do yourselves a favor and go for it. You will be so happy that you did.

Preppieroots, it was wonderful to have a chance to chat about everything from conjure oils to dog breeds and back again. Your daughter is a real charmer, by the way -- such a sweet look and pretty ways.

Sorry you went over budget -- but i hope you enjoy all the goodies you scored. :-)

Catherine, thanks (about my girl) I agree totally! She's a charmer. And as for my budget, well, that sort of worked it's way into my Homework...I put my partner's name first, turned the paper and then put mine on top, because I realized that while I may not have been doing a full on trick with oils and candle etc, maybe a name paper could do just enough something-something that I could get away with that total without even a sigh... which I did...as soon as I got in the car, he asked how much I had spent...I said how much and he just said "oh" and left it at that. No pouting or lectures, and he was in a very good mood for having sat so long waiting for me too, which is very much out of his nature. A very good thing all around, doing that homework assignment. :D Anyhoo, no problem at all about my budget, I am literally giddy about my loot, it's all waiting to be unwrapped and placed on my shelves in a quiet corner of the house.

route95, maybe you'll get to visit the shop sooner than you imagine!! I hope you can someday!!

preppieroots:

Glad to hear you had such a good experience! I'm blessed to live an hour away from Lucky Mojo shop and do love my visits. I agree with your assessment of timing...if you do go give yourself plenty of time. I have never once felt like I was being rushed, hurried, or ushered out the door at any time. I have worked retail my whole life and realize that it can get tough, but everyone has been a peach to me and my wife --- each and every visit.

Tomorrow my wife and I get to further enhance and advance the work we have been doing by signing up for the Correspondence Course (finally after wanting to for 2 years!), and I would advise everyone reading this to head over to that page and consider if it is right for you!

I'm still very happy to read every testimonial from people who get to visit the shop. It is amazing, and "real," and a darn good time!

After a smooth,long drive up to Forestville, Odu777 and I arrived at the Lucky Mojo Shop. The setting and the shop were welcoming.There is an incredible and broad array of everything a practitioner could want or need. The staff, notably Greg and Alicia, were amazingly knowledgeable and personable.

We have been hard at work using Cat's products. Cat's Spiritual Cleansing products are potent and incredibly effective. Her directions are extremely thorough.
The results have appeared already. Good news arrived and a welcome,formerly m.i.a., family member has come over.

Thank you Cat for your Lucky Mojo

Lucky Mojo is a wondrous place to be. I am grateful this place exists.
I did not expect to actually meet Cat, however, I did. She has a presence that is unmistakeable. Cat you are a Wise Woman. Thank you for spending time with me and my other half.
I would very much like to thank to both Robin and Alicia for the sharing their knowledge and smiles.
Blessings to you all at Lucky Mojo. I am glad that you are here for those of us who need you.
'till next time, 8-)

That's awesome....I have a tentative date in my mind to make a trip out to Northern CA, which will involve a trip to Lucky Mojo. It is sooooo good to hear positive experiences like this!
Thanks and Praise to Dr. Hernandez, St. Jude and St. Anthony for all you have done, and continue to do on my behalf. My eternal thanks to you for your many blessings!

I couldn't agree more. When I went out there with some of my Vodou children in September, I was very pleased to have made the 14 hour flight and 3 hour drive out there .... Miss Cat took time out from her day to show us around, share with us about the history of hoodoo and show us a lot of her collection. The product choices were astounding! The LM staff created oils for us that weren't on the shelves, and nothing was too much trouble.

Miss Cat is an incredible bundle of knowledge! A walking encyclopedia of Hoodoo! I am honoured to be a graduate of her course :-)

Thanks, all, for the kind words. Everyone at the shop is intent on great customer service, and kudos should also go to Tracy, Heidi, Greg, Angela, Della, and Ernie for making everyone's shopping experience fun and easy.

Also, here are two tips for anyone who plans a visit:

I work in the shop Wednesdays through Sundays. Please do phone a day or two ahead to see if i will be there when you arrive, and what my schedule for tarot readings looks like for the day.

If you plan to arrive in the shop on a Monday or Tuesday -- my personal "weekend" off each week -- you can also call ahead to arrange for me to come in and see you. I live right next door to the shop, and i am always glad to drop in and say hello, but you have to speak up and request my presence if you are going to visit on my days off.

How to get to the shop in Forestville?

Unread post by wendy » Wed Jan 12, 2011 8:50 am

Hi, I live abroad in Ireland and planning to go to USA end this month.
I want to visit your shop to buy some things I need. If I order online customs charge me to much and as well the order takes long to arrive.
My question is how do I get to Forestville? Do I need to fligh into San Francisco airport or is it Santa Rosa the nearest?
From there are there buses, trains or any other public transport way to get to your shop?
Are there hotels close by to your shop where I can stay overnight?
Ok I hope somebody can help me, thanks,
Wendy

Well, we would love to see you, but be prepared for a drive out into the country!

We are about 1 1/2 hours by car north of San Francisco. Your only public transport would be by bus -- from San Franciso to Santa Rosa and then transferring to a bus to Forestville. It is a LONG bus ride -- four hours, perhaps -- because the bus stops in every little town along the way to pick up and let off passengeres.

The nearest hotels and motels are in the towns of Sebastopol and Santa Rosa. There are no hotels in Forestville.

As always, i apologize for living so far away from an urban environment, but tha's just the way it is. :-)

Hi,
Thanks for all the replies. I probably will take a bus from SF airport to Santa Rosa and stay there in a hotel. The next day bus or taxi to Forestville where I can spent the day looking around and getting all what I need. I will call the shop in advance when I'm due to arrive. Should I put my order in advance or can I find everything on the spot there? Can mojo hands made for me on the spot or do I need to order in advance?
Ok thanks and look forward to see the shop and meet with Cat.

Wendy

Hi Wendy!

I live in Sacramento, and drive to the shop which is about 2 hours away all the time. If you private message me when you are going to be in town, and if it falls during one of my trips to the shop, I would be more than happy to give you a lift from the surrounding area hotels.

You will LOVE the shop!

with hugs and prayers,
Brida

Brida, that is very kind of you! Also, there are several shop employees who live in Santa Rosa. If you contact us and arrange ahead, i am sure that they will give you a ride out when they come in in the morning. Among those living in Santa Rosa are Eileen, Nicole, Heidi, Della, Tracy, and Angela. They work various days, but all of them come in for work early enough to be here at 9:00 am.

Oh, and yes, do call your order in ahead as a "hold for pick-up" -- that way we are sure to have everything made for you when you arrive.

A question.
I need a few special made Mojo hands for a certain personal thing.
What should I do? Do I need to request what I want by calling the shop?
Can I also sent an email with my request and what is the email adress?
How do I need to pay for this as what I request won't be on the online shop page.

Thanks,
Wendy
