Occult Sequence of the Early Kind - Indianapolis Monthly

The Meridian-Kessler dealer sells his witchcraft all year round.

A little practical magic helped if Andi McCleary, the owner of Early Kind, was looking for more space for her charming online shop. After bringing her requests for a venue for a month-long pop-up shop to the universe, one of her regular customers at Black Circle Brewing Co. caught the wind and suggested a more permanent location for her creepy shop.

At the corner of 46th Street and Norwaldo Avenue, at LOOM – the new Black Circle production facility and coworking space – a small retail location was available. Soon, Early Child opened his weathered cream-colored brick and mortar (you will recognize it by the big eye painted over the window).

The retail space is open and airy so you can easily navigate through angular crystal jewelry. Rune stones that, like tarot cards, are used nearby to predict the future; and a pharmacy that stocks Moon Cycle bath tea to help you relax and balance.

Although McCleary says Early Kind was referred to as a “witch starter pack store,” it also sells non-metaphysical items so you can pick up a skull-shaped bath bomb or some of the dried flowers that adorn all four walls. Solve the puzzle and exhaust one of the prepared shops Gift packages.
