Salem's Vintage Photography is one of those photography shops that dress you up in fancy costumes and then take your picture. It's pretty pricey if you actually buy the photos. We were smart and paid the sitting fee for the two boys then bought the disc along with the photo release. Otherwise you are stuck with the package you order which is really pricey and the inability to make any copies.
Sebastian had a great time posing as a wizard. Hammy and Sebastian both looked terrified as they posed as pirates trying to steal each other's treasure. They were cute. We kept trying to get Gryphon to join in but he just wasn't having it.
What to buy: The best buy is the complete disc for $39.99.
What to pay: $4.95 per person sitting fee then whatever package you want

Salemdipity was an interesting store. They had an assortment of Salem souveniers such as tee shirts, post cards, Halloween decorations and witchy items. I was surprised to see they had a large selction of Christmas items and decorations. The decorations were very cute and some had a witch theme.

I'm not a person who likes the idea of Witchcraft or divination. Liz on the other hand has different beliefs. She often orders items from Laurie Cabot and wanted to go in the store on this visit. To our surprise there she was in the flesh; Laurie Cabot. She was very nice and done up in her witches gear.
The store has a variety of herbs, oils, books, charms, music and candles.
**there is a sign on the door prohibiting pictures**
What to buy: Liz bought some candles.
What to pay: Both candles were around $18.

This is a truly great store for anyone who is interested in the metaphysical and paranormal. I was impressed by the large section of healing stones and crystals. There were so many books on so many different topics that I could have browsed the book section for hours. They also had a wide selection of items from different cultural back grounds and spiritual beliefs. If you visit here make sure you check out the jewelry cases, they had many beautiful items at reasonable prices. The store is open daily 10 AM to 7 PM.
What to buy: Healing Stones, Books, Jewelry, Gifts
What to pay: DEPENDS ON WHAT YOU BUY

When SES and I were walking the streets of Salem we came across this small candy shop and decided to stop in because of the delicious aroma coming from inside. To my joy I found a great little candy store filled with all sorts of home made delights. My mouth was watering as I peered through the glass cases at the various chocolate covered fruits, jellies, caramels, brittle, hard candies etc. I felt just like a kid at the nickle candy store.
The store was started by Mrs. Spencer and her son in 1806 and was taken over by John William Pepper in 1830 after the death of Mrs. Spencer. The store has been owned by the Burkinshaw family since around the turn of the century. It has now been run by this family for 4 generations.
The shop on Derby Street in Salem is the original store however there is a second store in North Andover.
The Salem Shop's hours are:
July Thru October -Monday-Saturday: 10 a.m.-6 p.m.
Sundays: 10 a.m..-6 p.m.
November Thru June - Monday-Saturday: 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
Sundays: 10 a.m..-5 p.m.
Call us for extended hours before holidays
What to buy: Salem Gibralters were the first commercially made candies in America. They come in lemon and peppermint flavor and have a smooth melt-in-your-mouth texture much like an after dinner mint. A box of 12, 6 of each flavor will run you around $12.
I bought some freshly made peanut brittle for my father who reports that it was the best he's ever had.
I also bought some raspberry jellies for my mother. She loved them.
SES and I enjoyed some fruit slices. They were delicious.
What to pay: It really depends on what you buy.

I couldn't resist doing a tip on the BUNGHOLE. It's a cool place, with a funny name, to drop in for some interesting spirits, i.e. a small liquor store that sells beer, wine and spirits. It has a colorful history as it became a secret drinking spot during the Prohibition.

Built in 1804 as a retail shop for Henry Prince, who was then living in the house next door. THE WEST INDIES GOODS STORE is part of the Salem Maritime National Historic Site. Today it is a retail shop once again, selling items from all over the world.

This wonderful. cobblestoned street is a popular Salem shopping area. the ESSEX STREET PEDESTRIAN MALL has something for everyone. You can find bookstores, selling new and used books, Arts and Crafts, Witchy Gift items, Salem souvenirs, T-shirts and postcards. It was a wonderful area to browse in and while we were there Celtic music was being played just outside a Music store. There were many little kiosks along the street too, selling flowers, tarot reading and little souvenir stands.
