The Hidden Department of Notions: Wizard's Blessing
Ages ago and a little after the Great Depression there were stores called Notion departments. If you have a great grandmother or even an old grandmother they may remember these places. This was a store were you could go and buy thread, cloth, buttons and anything related to sewing.
Now just like today and in the age of reason people have all different beliefs. Some are into Wicca some are Christian and many others are all different things. Basically it was just like today but things were kept much, much quieter.
On a little known alley way in the deep in NYC the practice of the occult was in high practice. The things we don't know today were not forgotten to one lost family. This family worked around the clock for those like them, those into the paranormal and the occult. Their last name was Smith. Yes it is a common name but what they did was anything but common.
Inside the shop which seemed to appear only at the beginning of dusk you could find all sorts of things,related to sewing. While many people found their way in some found exactly what they were looking for, those in the know. A special code word was used to open up the back room which was filled with flying silver fish. At least that is how people described the spirits that resided there. Opening the door was like walking into a room where silver glitter was thrown into the air. That is how many spirits filled that room. The other thing that filled that room was tons and tons of buttons. Each one was designed for beauty, creativity and supreme power. They were also created so no one would notice them other then to say how original. They were not jewelry that could be stolen and could be worn anywhere, on a coat, on the inside of a jacket or just carried around.
Here you will find many of the ones my grandmother collected. Below you will find the description and what they do. They are extremely powerful in what they do that is why each of them only hold one power. Again, below you will find a description of what they do. Some of them look exactly the same and are listed with a multiple quantity, but may be different is size or color. This is because they hold the exact same power. If there multiples you will receive the one that we pick out for you.
This piece displays the face of an ancient light wizard who was mastered in white magics. He was regarded as a wise and powerful official in the Order of White where he would teach young wizards and witches protection, healing and balanced longevity. It was the ability to extend life but it wasn't quite immortality. It was just how to live longer than what was considered average human life expectancy. It was a specific form of white magic that helped the aging of the human body balance out into a very consistent and even pattern, how to protect one's self from evil and how to maintain health both mentally, physically and spiritually. So essentially what this piece gives you is safety, long life and sustained health.
This is one in a series of masks we have, which were made by a powerful Stregheria. They are all, one way or another, instilled with a form of wealth that brings fortune and good luck.
