Custom Root Doctor Bags Are In!
Imagine yourself in 1930, carrying your hoodoo supplies with you, on your way to call upon a client. Our new Antique Root Doctor Bags are your personal time machine -- taking you back to the way things were. Each of these doctor bags is old and worn and carries with it years of charm. Each bag is made to suit a certain kind of worker -- a "personality type," so to speak. Included in each bag you will find a wide array of Lucky Mojo products, plus antique "extras" such as old booklets, new-old-stock spiritual goods, and special one-of-a-kind packaging. No two bags are alike, due to the unique vintage goods they contain.

Antique Root Doctor's Bag from the Lucky Mojo Curio Co.

Two years ago Professor Porterfield and Miss cat co-created the first of their vintage bags, the Nurse's Bag #1, for a sex worker with a side-interest in medical and spiritual healing. Then came Solomonic Man Bag #1, designed for a male root doctor working in the borderlands between Southern conjure and the Chicago-style grimoire tradition, circa 1935. Our third Vintage Root Doctor bag was Spiritual Lady Bag #1, a collection of Biblical and Spiritualist supplies for a woman to use in services of hands-on cleanings, home protection, and love-drawing.

Nurse's Bag #1 sold within days of completion. Solomonic Bag #1 (shown above) sold in less than a week. Miss cat is now taking orders for more custom bags. See more photos and get an idea of prices by clicking on the links below:

If you are looking for a unique, seriously aesthetic carrying case filled with Lucky Mojo conjure goods and authentic vintage accoutrements, please drop a line to and we will arrange an appointment for a conversation that will set in motion the process of creating your very own one-of-a-kind bag.

SATURDAY, May 7 - SUNDAY, May 8, 2011:   



Two full days of hoodoo fun, friendship, and learning, complete with potluck meals and plenty of time to meet your fellow conjure workers, sponsored by Missionary Independent Spiritual Church, and featuring teachers from around the country!  The May Hoodoo Workshops are a casual, relaxing, and sociable way to gain hands-on practice in the spiritual arts.

Here are some advance glimpses into what is on tap:

Robin Petersen will give her annual Hoodoo Foods! workshop on Conjure Cookery on Saturday, May 7, 2011. Magical Chefs are encouraged to submit recipes for publication in this year's Recipe Round-Up booklet. And if you are attending the workshops, please bring your sorcerous dishes in for sharing and taste-testing, because prizes will be awarded to the top three conjure cooks.

Dr. Kioni will perform a Palo Road-Opening Ceremony in the Congo-Cuban African diasporic tradition for the empowerment and benefit of all attendees. He will then lead an intensive workshop in Making a Consecrated Palo Protection Amulet in a seashell for you to take home and bury at your doorstep. All materials are supplied. Register early for this one!

Dr. E. will lead a hands-on workshop in Making and Catching a Spirit in a Doll-Baby for ritual use. This class covers everything from the historical perspective to hands-on work with dolls made from twigs, cloth, wax, clay, and other materials. Bring personal concerns of someone you wish to embody in your doll -- and be prepared to baptize your doll in the name of that someone special. This leads directly into the workshop on mirror boxes...

Robin Petersen will conduct a hands-on class on Making and Working With Mirror Boxes to trap spirits -- such as the one who was put in the doll-baby you just made in Dr. E.'s workshop! Your custom mirror box will be prepared in a ritual manner and the doll will be interred in it, so that all deeds, both good and evil, will reflect back to the one embodied in the doll. All materials are supplied and Robin guarantees that even craft-newbies will make and take home a beautiful hand-made mirror box.

Valentina Burton, the Dallas Psychic and Palm Reader, will lead a workshop on How to Become a Professional Reader and Root Doctor, including how to set up a business; choose the types of divination that are right for you and for your clients; how to read at psychic fairs, hotels, metaphysical shops, parties, in your own parlour, and via telephone, email, or skype; how to advertise both locally and via the internet; organizations you can join to enhance your business; how to book and schedule readings; how to handle clients from all walks of life; and, most importantly, how to keep yourself spiritually clean and protected while dealing with people who come to you in trouble. A take-home book is included!

Mvanah Maloti has promised to come in as a special guest and teach a two-hour intensive workshop in Sangoma Bone Reading (also known as Throwing the Bones or Casting the Bones). He went to Africa to learn this ancient art from a traditional healer and teacher in Swaziland, and now he is bringing it all back home to American hoodoo practitioners. This is a rare opportunity to learn bone-reading, and it is one workshop you must not miss.

Miss cat is going back to the basics with a workshop titled "All About Candles," a hands-on intensive on how to choose, load, carve, anoint, seal, and pray over free-standing, figural, and vigil candles for love, money, protection, luck, reversing, and cursing. Be prepared to learn a LOT -- this is a compressed version of the 5-hour class cat teaches to student graduates, but geared for newbies as well. Learn the secrets of The Philosophy of Fire!
