When walking into a mystic night market, expect to find holistic, spiritual and unexpected items. The Royal Canadian Legion in Guelph held the free, witchy event hosted by Luna Events Canada on Friday, Feb. 28 and the venue was packed.
Tons of different people drove in the nighttime blizzard to check out the 40 plus vendors selling items like crystals and essential oils, dream catchers, homemade spells in jars and tarot card readings.
“Thank you for bringing your beautiful energy, your beautiful products, for all your support, love and kindness,” said Luna Events Canada on Instagram.
If you didn’t have a chance to visit the market, here are five items/vendors that are worth a closer look:
5. Bright Side Blondie
Jordan Brianne, creator of Bright Side Blondie, had a range of holistic products including scented crystal healing bags, jewelry, and other accessories at her booth.
A unique product that caught many market attendee’s eyes were her handmade dreamcatchers with a crystal woven into the centre.
“I offer a range of services and products to provide you with the most beneficial and personalized Holistic experience! I believe that each one of us is unique, and so, the path to healing and happiness looks a little different for each of us,” reads Brianne’s online shop.
4. White Light Wellness Centre
Mary Vivilecchia is a Holistic Healing Practitioner that offers a wide variety of services such as Reiki, Chakra Balancing, Crystal therapy and many more. She is the founder of White Light Wellness Centre and along with her services, her booth had many items that sparked people’s interest. Such as these Crystal rods for your drinking water that are allegedly supposed to release their properties into the water and energize it.
“There’s different rods with different intentions, and it will energize your water with that intention, and then you just drink that gemstone water. So it’s safer than putting crystals in your water, because we don’t want you to do that. Some crystals are very toxic, so this is the safer way of doing it,” explained Vivilecchia.
3. Earth Star Healing Collective
This is not your typical crystal booth. Kerri O’Rourke, founder of Earth Star Healing collective had the usual crystals and rocks for sale, but some unique finds also sat on her table. Beautiful crystal pipes in honour of the stoner holiday 4/20, and small crystal balls on tiny wooden stands stood out above the rest.
“We’re actually having an event on 4/20, and we’ll have a bunch of other types of crystals to choose from like Rose Quartz, they just haven’t come in the mail yet,” said O’Rourke.
2. Crooked Roots, Handmade Creations
Based out of Kitchener, Crooked Rootz is a couple run nature business that makes jewelry, pendants, keychains and so much more using wood found in local forests and lakes. Burning designs into their products and adding colourful resin sets these wooden treasures apart from others, especially these handcrafted incense holders.
“I make them, and my wife does all the burning part,” said Greg Whitehead, about their creations.

1. Unidentified Witchcraft
This booth was like no other at the market, which is why it landed in the number one spot. Unidentified Witchcraft creator Amy Hallman had necklaces and earrings for sale, but the main things she was selling were various homemade spells, that when used properly they supposedly work and result in whatever you were trying to fix, manifest, ban, etc.
“They [the spells] are basically to ban winter, people would use them back in the day to get rid of the winter god Boreas…” said Hallman.
