* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Hello all! Hope everyone is having a great day first off!

I was just wondering what some good online shops were to get stuff from. I love google but I hate it at times, because I want something that isn't just gunna take my money and run basically! I was just wondering what some of your favorites shops were? Where I live I don't believe I have a shop near by, so online in my only option.
Hope you continue to have a pleasant day!

There's a website called NOVICA, which sells products from various parts of the world, including Latin America and Mexico. It actually sells statues of Aztec gods. It stands to reason that I'd want to buy some. However there is only one problem. For some reason they only do premium shipping to Australia, which is very expensive and I simply can't afford it right now.

It's a massive tease.

Magus Books (http://magusbooks.com). (Their online website is hard to navigate, you may have an easier time just calling and talking to someone.)

Another vote for Magus (& mountain rose for that matter) here. And the gentleman who handles the online orders is awesome.

I've noticed Magus uses the same mass wholesaler a lot of the other online stores use, but they're so much more fabulous. What's with that? Having a good variety of additional sources?

Pretty much, yep. They're careful which things they stock, and while they get a lot of the general ordinary stuff that lots of people carry, they're careful about which bits - and also carry some less common things.

On the herbs, their herbalist is awesome, and she's very careful to make sure that they order so none of their stock sits on the herb wall for too long (which is more than you can say for a lot of places... Mountain Rose is good, but again, there's stuff they don't carry, and you have to be willing to get 4oz at a time.)

Good to know, I haven't ordered herbs from them (yet) :)

Thanks so much for all the advice! I've wrote them all down (Yeah I'm 21 but still a big believer in pen and paper! haha) and will be giving them all looks here shortly!

I have used Magicalomaha. They have a wide variety of stuff to browse through and postage is very reasonable.

Yeah, and you can customize your search by seller location... and not just by country or state, too: it can be narrowed down by city, which is great if you -really- want to support local businesses!

 
I tried it - wow, etsy is like whole another world I was a stranger to... thans everyone for the suggestion!
