Today we’d like to introduce you to Madame Pamita.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Madame Pamita. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I’ve been a tarot reader for practically my entire adult life. I’m also a musician. I created a vaudeville act called “Madame Pamita’s Parlour of Wonders” where I would play old music from the ’20s and ’30s and read audience members’ fortunes. From there, I open my own store where I sold handcrafted beeswax spell candles and other spiritual supplies. First I was in Santa Monica, but then I moved to Highland Park in 2014, where I share a space with my friend Jen Hitchcock of Book Show. We have a magical little carnival of weird old books & zines and a spiritual apothecary.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
I definitely learned a lot in my business journey. I started out with a very small one room office, then moved to a big storefront in Santa Monica. Finally, I realized the right fit for me was having a space that I shared with a like-minded friend. I was like Goldilocks, first too small, then too big, then just right!
We’d love to hear more about your business.
I offer very positive spiritual gifts and items that can only be found in my shop. Lots of gorgeous hand-made, molded beeswax candles. I also sell crystals, candles and spiritual oils from other makers who I admire, a little magical corner in the shop where people can just drop by and pick up something for themselves or a gift for someone else. We also have a huge mail order business that ships worldwide. I think what sets us apart is that we are quite positive and everything that we make, we do so with love.
What were you like growing up?
I was a magical child from the start. I picked up my first tarot deck at age ten and never looked back. I would read every book on alternative spirituality that I could get my hands on, from ancient Greek gods to modern day magic. I was a book, magic and music nerd.
