2 | White Light Bookstore and Crystals

One of the two New Age stores on this list, White Light offers an array of crystals, tarot cards, incense, and other New Age items. They also regularly home a cat from KC Pet Project until it is able to find a home of its own! | Website


3 | Hammerpress

Hammerpress offers a variety of hand-pressed printed materials. It’s a great place to go to get stationery that can’t be duplicated out of a big box store.

The second New Age store on this list, Aquarius Bookstore and Vulcan’s Forge are two stores in one. With an extensive New Age section that includes similar items to White Light, the real show stopper here is Vulcan’s Forge. This Custom Fine Jewelry store can create one-of-a-kind items that don’t look like anything you’ll see at a traditional jewelry store! | Website
