    If you visit Salem, Mass., there are probably three "witchy" shops or boutiques for each of the 19 accused who were executed in the 1600s during the Salem Witch Trials. Lotta competition in the Witch City.

    In our corner of the world, we are fortunate to have the beguiling Pandora's Box — A Mystical Shoppe in Norwich. It's an excellent emporium catering to the appetites of those who follow the Craft or various threads of paganism and the Olde Gods. It's also a fun and different gift store with all manners of spell kits, herbs, crystals and oils, amulets and jewelry, clothing, literature, incense and music and even — yes! — brooms.

    Owner Allison JoAnne is kind, patient, witty and devoted — the perfect proprietress to cater not just to regular customers but casual shoppers as well.

    Pandora's Box — A Mystical Shoppe, 209 W. Thames St., Norwich, 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Mon.-Fri., 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Sat.; (860)887-4501, www.facebook.com/pandorasBoxCT
