Bree NicGarran grew up in the wilds of Bucks County, Pennsylvania, and now resides in Tidewater, VA. She is the host of the Hex Positive podcast and her breakout work, Grovedaughter Witchery, has been hailed by the online pagan community as a new standard text for beginner witches. She lives with her husband and two very spoiled ginger cats, and is very glad that none of them seem to mind having a pagan altar in the living room.
Crash Reads Cards
"I’m Crash Margulies (they/them/neutral terms) of Crash Reads Cards and Claw & Wing Collective. I do intuitive Tarot readings and make weird witchy objects. My most recent venture is Pop Culture, Alternative, & Eclectic Prayer Beads! As someone who grew up with rosaries, I've found I miss the tactile aspect of prayer beads. However, when looking into pagan, witchy, and alternative beads, I found they didn't seem to match the purpose I thought prayer beads were for – keeping track of your spot in a prayer or series of prayers. So I thought, what other prayers could I make beads for? What resonates with me now, as an agnostic witch? I turned to my favorite songs, poems, and art, and Pop Culture Prayer Beads were born."
The DIY Witch
Savannah Rayne (she/they), or The DIY Witch as she's known on social media, is a PNW based art witch, creating monsters and fae, and bringing their own fantasy world to life. With an eclectic mix of art and accessories, everything is handmade with love and weirdness for you to enjoy!
Echo Zines is a creative project by Nina Zina (she/her or they/them) that is based in Belgium. As Echo Zines, Nina produces zines, postcards, stickers, buttons, and spell bags (and she plays in the feminist witch punk band Lavender Witch!). The witch zines that Nina makes talk about herbal magic, amulets, self-love potions, mundane witchcraft, and personal reflections about skeptical witchery. Echo Zines’ stickers and buttons feature sigils for self-empowerment and for queer, anti-racist, and accessibility activism, and the postcards depict witches in various settings. Nina also sews and assembles spell bags with natural and repurposed ingredients to promote self-care and community care.

Through HappyKoiPotteryShop, SednaWoo sells what she loves: “I love making pottery. I became hooked when I was forced to take my first ceramics class while attending university and I've been working with clay pretty much continually since then. It's been over twenty years now, and, my, how time flies. I'm a full time high school art teacher but any time I can I steal away to my studio I do. Teaching can be grueling and working with my hands keeps my head clear. Etsy is a simple and strait-forward way to sell my ware. I do have to sell it or things will pile up.”
