Essex Street

My second entry on the subject of our Salem excursion!: One of my favorite things about the city is how walkable it is. We had a good amount of sights on our “To See” list, and we were able to see most all of them and do some random wandering in between. On this particular day we had breakfast at a cozy diner called The Ugly Mug, and then browsed through this sublime little shop called HAUSWITCH. I love visiting most any store of the witchy or occult variety, but some of them can tend to be so full of stones, herbs and talismans of every sort that it can cause a bit of sensory overload. HAUSWITCH was more minimal and carefully curated, which made me feel like I could take my time checking out everything they had to offer and carefully select the perfect treasure. Next we visited The Witch House and did a self guided tour (holy hearth envy)! Before we ran out of sunlight we strolled around downtown, ducking into lots of cute local spots and grabbing a coffee at Gulu-Gulu Cafe. On our walk back to our attic apartment we stopped by Witch City Wicks, a local candle shop which I had been stalking on Instagram, so I could sniff absolutely evvvverything and pick up a couple of super fragrant gifts. We finished of our day with an anniversary dinner at The Ledger (highly beautiful and highly recommended), followed by nightcaps at Olde Main Street Pub. Such a dreamy New England day.
