We are excited to announce the return of the Muggles Market, just in time for Valentine’s Day! This year’s theme is Muggles Market: Love and Plunder, combining our adoration of pirates and love. As usual, you have a wonderful opportunity to get to know our artists, writers, artisans, and entertainment through our Muggles Market Spotlights.
Wanda Harward of Finding The Key is a returning artisan and long time friend of our Muggles Markets. We asked them a few questions about their life, work, and what treasures they’ll be bringing to Muggles Market: Love and Plunder.
Please tell us all about the plunder you’ll be bringing to Muggles Market.
I will be reading tarot and oracle cards for you! I also will bring my gemstone bracelets, which are created with specific intentions.
How did you get started making your glorious plunder?
I began reading tarot professionally in 2018, but I’ve used tarot for my own personal readings and meditations for over 20 years. I started making bracelets recently because folks asked me about options for protection and other needs.
What’s an item you are bringing that you are really excited about?
My new Mystery Tarot readings are perfect for a person who might not have the time or money for a full tarot reading. Each envelope contains a tarot card, the interpretation for that card, and an explanation about how to meditate using the card.
What else would you like everyone to know about your wares?
So many people think tarot readings are scary or ominous in some way. Forget what you’ve seen on TV and in movies! Tarot should never be scary. A tarot reading can help you to access information that you need to make life decisions. A good reading can provide clarity and help increase your understanding of your own life and possible paths for you. Tarot can also help you with your spiritual path and personal transformation.
Also, in addition to tarot readings, I also can provide affordable life coaching (though not at the Muggles Market). Many people would like to improve their lives in some ways, but there are barriers keeping that from happening. Life coaching is about making a plan to remove those barriers. For my geeky folks, there is a role playing game life coaching option available too!
What’s your favorite love or pirate story and why?
I am very fond of Peter Pan – sometimes we forget that’s a pirate story too! It’s about love being the greatest power of all.
You can find Finding The Key on the interwebs!
And, of course, you will meet them in person at Muggles Market: Love and Plunder on Sunday February 5, 2023 from 10:00AM to 4:00PM at Queen’s Sports Complex, 2229 Tyvola Rd. Charlotte, NC 28210! It’s always a good time for pirates! So dress in your finest, sea-worthy garb, and come check out these awesome treasures!
