    Well, New Englandish suggests that something that can take advantage of the Salem market, given that that area gets tourist traffic as well as locals. (Mind, Salem is itself sort of this thing already, in some areas, though a ... lot... of it is... crap.)

    I think the thread I was thinking of, meanwhile, was on a different board version (I seem to recall a similar thread where I was fantasising about a shop that has a wide variety of different wood twigs for wandcrafting purposes at one point, but maybe that was in my head) but of possible interest to folks, "What would your ideal pagan store carry?"

    New England is a vast place. I'm about five hours from Salem. Sadly.

    Still! It'd be more convenient for you than, say, Arizona!

    I think big nexus points for a pagan mall type thing would be the Salem area, Minneapolis, the SF Bay Area, and ... New Orleans, maybe? I'm less clear on where the nexus points are in the South. Wherever Serpentstone is, possibly.

    Also NYC (or somewhere in its commuter catchment area - so this mall could wind up in New Jersey).

    I'm not sure if the South has a nexus that's on anything like the same scale as NYC, the Bay Area, and Minneapolis. I believe Serpentstone is in NC (as was the Frosts' Church and School of Wicca, for many years, though it later relocated to WV), so that's definitely a possibility.

    Possibly around the Baltimore/Washington DC Metro area? I mean, that's more Mid-Atlantic than Southern, so it probably wouldn't solve any problems. I'm not really that familiar with anything below Northern Virginia.

    In North Carolina specifically I'd say the Triangle, the Triad, and Charlotte.

    While I definitely agree with the others that it's probably best to take your time and to have fun browsing, if you are interested in Hades as a patron god I'd just like to throw it out there that Hellenic Polytheism is a thing and that people enjoy it. However, definitely not everyone that works with Hades considers themselves one, I just figured you may not have heard of it as an option before.

    Have fun starting on your path, this is an exciting time in your life!

    There is no fire in hel that was 1 of the many perversions by Christianity, secondly as long as you used some forms of protection in your ritual then you should only be attracting entities with positive influences in mind, if you have come as far as inviting deities into your life then you will have already done much research and reading.. and if you have come this far then chances are your path is already chosen for you, otherworldly beings cannot interfere with mortals unless invited, what you have done is simply opened the door, as for the sensation you felt it could be simply coincidence or it may have been a very small reaction to the new energy drawn by you..

    The truth is nobody will know who if any are sending you messages unless they know you personally and have a good knowledge of deities... I had some very extreme experiences of someone desperately trying to contact me since birth but it took me 32 years to work out what was going on..

    Since then we have been inseparable and is also testament to how unique all living beings are as my relationship with this particular deity is completely different to anyone else who works with them..

    I am always happy to hear from anyone who has welcomed new life into theirs, try taking an honest look at your soul what goes on in your mind and what you are truly like which tends to be very different from what we put on show for the rest to see. If you think it might be a Hades then I would suggest deep closed eyes meditation or obsidian scrying as this is a sort of pathway to lower relms.

    Keep an eye out for certain messages in songs and TV, also watch out for certain animals that keep popping up. It can be an overwhelming time but try putting your mind at ease as the ones above and below are always grateful to see their children return.. Life isn't always wonderful but it is always a miracle.. Lots of love and luck on your path..

    But I say to you that whoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment. And whoever says to his brother, ‘Raca!’ shall be in danger of the council. But whoever says, ‘You fool!’ shall be in danger of hell fire. [Matthew 5:22; NKJV]
    So do you call Jesus a liar? Or do you call Matthew a liar? Or whom do you credit/blame for including this concept (which is found in several other passages in the New Testament, by the way)? What assurances do you have that your source of information is more reliable than theirs?

    This seems to be an extremely blanket statement. What assurances do you have that it is true in all cases?
