As I browsed the tarot goodies on eBay this morning I came across a whole lot of wands, crystals, decks, books etc being sold from the estate of a witch. I was very tempted by a few of the crystals and wands but something held me back...wondering what they've been used for.
So my question is...would you buy pre loved magical equipment?
Yes! I would - and I have. (I see where you're coming from - and I MUST RESIST - trying to find out what you bumped into
If I felt they needed "re-programming" in some way - then I'd do that, alla Apollonia.
It's nicer ofcourse - if you know who the owner was - as with some of my equipment.
This suddenly reminds me of the character "Bob" - in the the Harry Dresden files (Fantasy novels about
a modern wizard in Chicago, written by Jim Butcher). Bob - is an amoral elemental spirit encyclopedia, housed in a skull. His personality changes depending on whomever owns his skull - so he's good if owned by a good guy,
and bad if owned by a bad one.
