Where the Magic Begins

Recently I decided to profile some of our neighboring businesses that help to support the Hawthorne Hotel.  To that end I made an appointment to visit Lorelei Stathopoulos at Crow Haven Corner.

Lorelei has two darling chihuahuas who "own" her, and who come to work with her in the shop every day.

"Mojo" bags made specially for Lorelei.  You can tell immediately that her place has a feminine vibe.



An amazingly large geode.

This is one of the psychics who work for Lorelei.  His name is Demetrius Lacroix and evidently he has quite the following.




Magical supplies, occult books, herbs, crystals, spell kits, candles, incense, potions, jewelry, tee-shirts, mojo bags and more are all available in this interesting shop, located just across the street from the Hawthorne Hotel at 125 Essex Street.
Lorelei Statholpoulos as owned Crow Haven Corner for over 15 years.  She bought the store from Laurie Cabot is started it, and who became quite famous for her work here over the years, bringing thousands of visitors to Salem for the "witch" experience.


Lorelei Stathopoulos has a "desk" outside her shop with lots of information for visitors to Salem.


This is Nikki Ball who is the Manager of Crow Haven Corner and a delightful young woman.
Somethings are tradition in Salem, and getting a "reading" by a good psychic is one of them.  If you check out the reviews on www.TripAdvisor for this shop, you will see that they have a tremendously loyal and adoring fan base -- something that doesn't happen easily UNLESS you are good at what you do.

Lorelei and Christian Day partner in The Salem Witch Walk which offers a different spin on witchcraft in Salem.  This entertainment is also very positively rated on TripAdvisor.

Last but not least, in the evenings, for the month of October Lorelei is offering something new, involving apples, personal attention from her, and a visit to her inner sanctum, and it promises to be a unique adventure into magic as well.  For more information you should contact the shop at 978-745-8763.

I hope you enjoy learning a little more about our neighborhood around the Hawthorne Hotel.

And of course, I hope to see you here.
