lotus.anastasia is all set up. Personal-image avatar requires a photo sent to your gmail account for its use or to my Facebook account. A generic is used otherwise. Evan sent the electronic Patreon bits, but lotus had several email addresses and we've recalibrated and she now has all the letters with the secret links! All caught up!

The Mystic Tea Room: MAGICAL MATCHBOOKS

Tier 3 JULY 28th, 2021

Hello, everyone, and thank you for supporting "It's All Ephemera"!

This week in "From the Land of Tea," we dive deeper into the strange and almost forgotten world of psychic reading parlours that doubled as tea rooms, and tea rooms that doubled as psychic reading parlours.

Last week's Patreon web page on "Having Your Fortune Read At a Tea Room" surveyed the territory of tea readers, card readers, palmists, crystal ball scryers, and sand diviners who served their clients in tea shops.

(By the way, if you were subscribed last week, go back to the URL you got in email then and look at the page again -- i have almost DOUBLED it size then, with added illustrations and text!)

The most common advertising used by psychic readers who set up in tea rooms was the work-a-day business card, but when the tea room proprietors actually sponsored the readers, they tended to use a standard restaurant advertising medium, the matchbook cover.

At one time matchbooks were given out for free by almost every business in America, but when smoking was outlawed in restaurants, these ubiquitous pieces of commercial art became less common. They are still with us, but most folks now carry petroleum-fueled lighters.

Vintage matchbook covers tell us the amazing history of tea rooms and tea room themes, including tea room divination. This new web page, for the exclusive enjoyment of my Patrons for one year, takes us down the matchbook rabbit hole, to a little pocket-dimension of graphic delight.

1) Vintage Tea Room Matchbook Covers

[THE SECRET URL IS SENT TO PATRONS VIA EMAIL]

Journey with me now to Matchbook Land, the world of sho-card letters, graphic artists, and diligent typesetters, who helped make tea rooms and tea room fortune-telling the wonderful pleasure it was ... and may yet still be.

Thanks to my lovely and supportive Patrons -- you have made this web page possible.

2) The Mystic Tea Room Web Site

http://mystictearoom.com/wiki/The_Mystic_Tea_Room

"Vintage Tea Room Matchbook Coverss" is part of The Mystic Tea Room web site, which is dedicated to the traditional art of fortune telling by tea leaves, also known as tea leaf reading, cup reading, cup tossing, divination by tea leaves, tasseomancy, and tasseography.

Tier 1 AUGUST 7th, 2021

Hello, everyone, and thank you for supporting "It's All Ephemera"!

This week in "Your Wate and Fate," i open the door to the almost forgotten world of the psychic readers, numerologists, clairvoyants, and cartomancers of the 19th and 20th centuries, as manifested in the ephemera they have left us -- their business cards, advertisements, and photographs.

Two weeks ago my Patreon web page on "Having Your Fortune Read At a Tea Room" surveyed the territory of psychics who served their clients in tea shops. Now the gates swing wide on Scientific Palmists in downtown offices, Clairvoyants in big blue trailers travelling the American South, and touring stage entertainers who gave private readings to clients between the matinee and the evening show.

1) "In the Realm of the Readers"

[PATRONS GET THE SECRET URL IN EMAIL ONE YEAR BEFORE IT OPENS TO THE PUBLIC]

Tier 2 AUGUST 14th, 2021

Hello everyone, and thank you for supporting "It's All Ephemera"!

When one thinks of psychics, one doesn't think of Dayton, Ohio, as a hotbed of spiritual activity, but my research shows that a large number of card readers, crystal gazers, spiritual mediums, and even a blind phrenologist provided fortune telling services there from 1933-1944. Come take a trip through history and meet Josephine De Elgar and the Diviners of Dayton!

ONE NEW URL (and our regular stand-bys) go out on August 14th, 2021 for Tier 2 Patrons and above as a reward for your ongoing support of my writing projects:

Hello, everyone, and thank you for supporting "It's All Ephemera"!

This week in "From the Land of Tea," Patrons get one overview web page, plus SIX extra sneak-peak pages, as we explore the history of the Aynsley Cup of Fortune 2018 Commemorative Edition, which featured a redesign of the famous 1904 Nelros Cup of Fortune -- and was only released for sale in Japan.

Should you try one? Should you buy one? Should you buy them ALL? Can you afford NOT to?

Just $2.00 per week is all i ask of Patrons to support my writing about divination on the web and in books.

RETURN TO THE REALM OF THE READERS!

Image

Tier 3 AUGUST 28th, 2021

Hello, everyone, and thank you for supporting "It's All Ephemera"!

This week, as i am preparing my video presentation for the 2021 Hoodoo Heritage Festival workshop on "Down-Home Sex Magic," "Your Wate and Fate," returns to the lost world of the psychic readers, numerologists, clairvoyants, and cartomancers of the 19th and 20th centuries, with four new additions to the page.

Two weeks ago my Patreon web page on "The Realm of he Readers" opened the door on the shadowy shades of those who came before. This time a bit more light is shed, as we meet one fortune teller of 1915 who offers to take off spells caused by "Hoodoo, Witchcraft and Conjurations," and yet another reader who breaks with 1920s convention to offer readings "for white and colored," until, lest we feel too optimistic, we run smack dab into a tea leaf reader working out of a World's Fair building that promotes American unity with Hitler's Nazi Germany. Yes, then as now, occultism ran the cultural gamut from the angelic to the demonic. So it was. So it is.

1) "In the Realm of the Readers"

[PATRONS GET THE SECRET URL IN EMAIL ONE YEAR BEFORE IT OPENS TO THE PUBLIC]

Four more rare business cards and flyers, ranging from 90 to more than 100 years old, have been added to this quirky illustrated page on the metaphysical practitioners of yesteryear.

Thanks to my wonderfully supportive Patrons -- you have made this web page possible.

2) "Your Wate and Fate" Web Site

http://yourwateandfate.com/Your_Wate_and_Fate

"In the Realm of the Readers" is part of the Your Wate and Fate web site, which is dedicated to mechanical and personally-conducted fortune telling. If you are not yet familiar with the public portion of the site, check it out!

Hello, Startarot --

Thank you so much for joining my Patreon stream! I am going to copy your message over to the thread at this forum that deals with name-changes. We should soon see your name in RED, with a red star on your avatar.

And, again, i really appreciate your support. It makes my writing possible, because without it, i would spend all my time giving readings, and would have no time to write.

Chagrinedgirl -- and everyone at the "Collector" tier:

My sincere and humble apologies for LATENESS.

Due to the preparations for the September 11th-12th Virtual Hoodoo Heritage Festival, i was unable to finish curating and packing the AUGUST 2021 boxes on time. In fact, much to my shame, i only finished them today, September 27th!

They will go to the Lucky Mojo Shipping Department for finishing and shipping tomorrow. Look for them soon.

Meanwhile, nagasiva is right now assembling the boxes and stay-flats for the SEPTEMBER 2021 "Bibliophile, "Ephemerist," and "Collector" levels. I hope to get these together before October 1st, when the OCTOBER 2021 packages are due to be readied.

I am so sorry i got behind, and i am catching up now, with much enthusiasm and another great batch of goodies.

But first ... i have to finish the September 28th Patreon web page. It will be about cartomancy, and will join the stream at "Your Wate and Fate."

Where the Southern Cross the Yellow Dog: WHEN HOODOO WAS ILLEGAL: Henry B. Gottlieb

Tier 1 OCTOBER 7th, 2021

Hello, everyone, and thank you for supporting "It's All Ephemera"!

This week in "Where the Southern Cross the Yellow Dog," i take a look at the United States Post Office's successful legal action to suppress prayer and folk magic and prevent its practice by African-Americans.

1) "When Hoodoo Was Illegal: Henry B. Gottlieb and Twinz Co. versus the United States Post Office"

[PATRONS GET THE SECRET URL IN EMAIL ONE YEAR BEFORE IT OPENS TO THE PUBLIC]

This illustrated page brings us the Twinz aCo. of New York City and its suppression at the hands of the United States Post Office in 1956.

Thanks to my wonderfully supportive Patrons -- you have made this web page possible.

2) "Southern Spirits" Web Site
http://southernspirits.org/wiki/

"When Hoodoo Was Illegal" is a category of web pages at the Southern Spirits web site, which is a site that collects primary documentary accounts of the practice of hoodoo, the folk magic of African-American practitioners. If you are not yet familiar with the public portion of the site, check it out!

DISCUSSION FORUMS FOR PATRONS

3) The Public Southern Spirits web site:

http://www.southernspirits.org

Southern Spirits one of my nicest, but least-known web sites. Online since 1994, Southern Spirits brings the ghost-voices of our magical past into the modern age. These are our spiritual ancestors speaking -- both as others heard them and as they told the world about themselves. Listen!

The material at Southern Spirits was gathered from a variety of sources, including old books, magazine articles, newspapers, and even fragments extracted from novels and short stories. It is heavily annotated with interpretive and comparative notes, especially distinguishing between narratives told *by* practitioners and narratives *about* them, particularly when the latter are recounted by derogatory or "amused" white observers.

AMERICAN TEA ROOMS!

Image

Tier 2 OCTOBER 14th, 2021

Hello, everyone, and thank you for supporting "It's All Ephemera"!

Once more we leap into the past, exploring the tea rooms of bygone America, strung with crepe paper, decorated with giant parrots, set about with potted palms, and offering delicate viands in comfortably homey woman-safe spaces. Or lighthouses. Or old mills.

In the Land Of Tea, beauty and daft charm await us, and caffeine. Always caffeine, every female's friend.

Today's journey takes in the states of Alabama, California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, and South Dakota. There will be surprises, there will be nostalgia, and, yes, there will be Republicans.

"American Tea Rooms" is online now for my Patrons, in gratitude for your support. The public will not see it until October 14th, 2022, by which point it will be unlocked for their amazement.

But you, my Patrons, you get the SECRET URL, and so for your eyes only, the Land of Tea becomes a quivering reality, seen though the doorway to another dimension, a private upcoming page that will eventually be on display at the Mystic Tea Room web site. As a Patreon supporter, you have access to the page one full year before the public does.

Six URLS (of which 5 are regular stand-bys) go out on October 14th, 2021 for Tier 2 Patrons and above as a reward for your ongoing support of my Patreon project.

1) American Tea Rooms

[THE SECRET URL IS SENT TO PATRONS VIA EMAIL]

http://mystictearoom.com/wiki/Category: ... _Postcards

After a year for Patrons to enjoy, this material will make its way to the public-facing pages of The Mystic Tea Room, a repository of all things Tea.

2) The Mystic Tea Room Web Site

http://mystictearoom.com/wiki/The_Mystic_Tea_Room

"American Tea Rooms" is part of The Mystic Tea Room web site, which is dedicated to the traditional art of fortune telling by tea leaves, also known as tea leaf reading, cup reading, cup tossing, divination by tea leaves, tasseomancy, and tasseography.

1) Your Wate and Fate -- Fortune Telling Cigarette Cards by Edwards, Ringer and Bigg

[PATRONS GET THE SECRET URL IN EMAIL ONE YEAR BEFORE IT OPENS TO THE PUBLIC]

Once again this week we bring you a husband-and-wife collaboration, each of us doing what we do best: scanning and photoshopping (nagasiva) and writing and photoshopping (me). If you liked the Major Drapkin Palmistry cards and the Tea Leaf Reading Postcards of a few months ago, here is another treat for you --"How to Learn Fortune Telling" while smoking coffin nails in 1929. This week we present Part One of the full set of vintage Edwards, Ringer & Bigg cigarette trading cards, a crash course in Astrology, including a novel way to tell fortunes using numerology as applied to astrological cycles. Stay tuned, because the series continues next week with Cartomancy instructions, followed by Tea Leaf Reading, and Palmistry. The uncredited author and artist of these cards had solid knowledge and a clever way of breaking everything down into easily understood chunks. You are going to love the lessons and the art. Along the way i present annotations and side-commentaries, as always, because there is a lot to learn from these jam-packed antique trading cards.

[PATRONS GET THE SECRET URL IN EMAIL ONE YEAR BEFORE IT OPENS TO THE PUBLIC]
http://yourwateandfate.com/Fortune_Tell ... r_and_Bigg

This is Part Two of our four-part husband-and-wife collaboration on the resurrection, restoration, and interpretation of the amazing "How To Tell Fortunes" Cigarette Cards by Edwards, Ringer and Bigg. This week nagasiva has finished the photoshopping, and i have completed the transcription and annotation of the six cartomancy instruction cards from 1929, which present a complete and unique form of card reading by the Cross of Fifteen. This is neither the Celtic Cross tarot layout nor the Method of Fifteen playing card layout. In fact, the Cross of Fifteen is unlike any other card layout and, surprisingly, it offers unexpected insights into British tasseomancy and folk magic. Stay tuned, because the series continues next week with Tea Leaf Reading, and then concludes with Palmistry. The uncredited author and artist of these cards had solid knowledge and a clever way of breaking complex methods down into easy-to follow instructions. You are going to love the lessons and the art. Along the way i present annotations and side-commentaries, as always, because there is a lot to unpack from these fabulous antique trading cards.

When Hoodoo Was Illegal: The Old Chief Medicine Co.

Image

Tier 2 NOVEMBER 14th, 2021

Hello, everyone, and thank you for supporting "It's All Ephemera"!

This week in "Where the Southern Cross the Yellow Dog," i take a look at the United States Food and Drug Administration's successful legal action to destroy traditional American herbal knowledge that had its roots in ancient Native American medicine.

1) "When Hoodoo Was Illegal: FDA versus Indiana Botanic Garden and Old Chief Medicine Co. 1950"

[PATRONS GET THE SECRET URL IN EMAIL ONE YEAR BEFORE IT OPENS TO THE PUBLIC]

This illustrated page brings us the story of A. L. Machris and the Old Chief Medicine Co. of Detroit, Michigan, a mail-order house that purchased bulk herbal teas from Joseph E. Meyer's Indiana Botanic Gardens in Hammond, Indiana. Lucky for us, while ordering several shipments of these folkloric medicines to be destroyed, the FDA also carefully noted down all of the ingredients in six different remedies -- so now you can make your own!

Thanks to my wonderfully supportive Patrons -- you have made this web page possible.

2) "Southern Spirits" Web Site

http://southernspirits.org/wiki/

"When Hoodoo Was Illegal" is a category of web pages at the Southern Spirits web site, which is a site that collects primary documentary accounts of the practice of hoodoo, the folk magic of African-American practitioners.

Southern Spirits one of my nicest, but least-known web sites. Online since 1994, Southern Spirits brings the ghost-voices of our magical past into the modern age. These are our spiritual ancestors speaking -- both as others heard them and as they told the world about themselves. Listen!

The material at Southern Spirits was gathered from a variety of sources, including old books, magazine articles, newspapers, and even fragments extracted from novels and short stories. It is heavily annotated with interpretive and comparative notes, especially distinguishing between narratives told *by* practitioners and narratives *about* them, particularly when the latter are recounted by derogatory or "amused" white observers.

Conjure Doctoring and the Walking Boy: From the Southern Workman and Hampton School Record, Vol. 28 August 1899

Image

Tier 3 NOVEMBER 21st, 2021

Hello, everyone, and thank you for supporting "It's All Ephemera"! This week in "Where the Southern Cross the Yellow Dog," i take a look at how African-Americans were documenting hoodoo and conjure practices in the 19th century.

1) "Conjure Doctoring and the Walking Boy: From the Southern Workman and Hampton School Record, Vol. 28 August 1899" presents three personal anecdotes of root doctoring experienced by a young student-teacher between 1885 and 1895. Not only are her recollections a rare example of black Americans collecting and publishing their own folklore prior to 1900, the forms of divination used by the root doctors are very old and obscure today. In particular, the secret of diagnosing hoodoo with a walking boy is almost unknown at the present time, and is described here in detail.

Old English Tea Rooms

Tier 3 NOVEMBER 28th, 2021

Hello, everyone, and thank you for supporting "It's All Ephemera"!

In this month's journey to the past, we take a trip through the Motherland of Tea Rooms, old England. Here we see a national treasury of pre-1950 postcards showing thatched cottages, 16th century Tudor architecture, stored farmsteads, and repurposed rectories. Above all, a wealth of fireplaces, flowers, and potted palms, for in the Land Of Tea, we appreciate all that which is cozy and warm.

1) Old English Tea Rooms

[THE SECRET URL IS SENT TO PATRONS VIA EMAIL]

This brand new web page continues my project of curating, scanning, and uploading rare old tea room postcard images and contextualizing them with accompanying descriptions. There are 20 vintage postcards in this batch. After a year for Patrons to enjoy, the material will make its way to the public-facing pages of The Mystic Tea Room, a repository of all things Tea.

"Old English Tea Rooms" is online now for my Patrons, in gratitude for your support. The public will not see it until November 28th, 2022, at which point it will be opened for all to enjoy.

2) The Mystic Tea Room Web Site
