I highly recommend Leanne as a reader to anyone looking for some insight into their lives. Although anyone would love her, I especially recommend newbies because she is so friendly and easygoing (no dark erie stares I promise). She is never awkward and has a great warm personality that brings people back. I have even accidentally run into Leanne outside... More

I recently moved to the area and I am so happy I can get my Hex fix weekly instead of once a year during October. I'm sure the owner, Christian Day, knows how wonderful his staff really is!

I've lived in New England my whole life, but my first experience that I remember at Hex was Halloween a few years ago. Let me just say Salem on Halloween is utter chaos. Now, I live in Salem, and I'm at Hex at least once a week. I love this store. The staff is always so warm and inviting. I... More

What a fantastic little find! I could spend days in this shop... The owner and management obviously take great care to cultivate only the best and most unique, often handmade (which I must say there is far too little of in most cookie-cutter "new-agey" atrenpts at witch shops) witchery for their shop. The curios abound for both the serious practitioners... More

This review is entirely untrue and it pains me to even write a response to it. I attended a Jewish university (Brandeis) and would never say such thing. I can only hope that it's someone who misunderstood someone other than me, but I fear that it's something worse. Recently, a featured story on me in the Boston Globe spoke of... More

I can't count how many times I've had reading with Leanne Marrama here at Hex. She is the most personable. The most accurate. Just amazing all around. I am never disappointed after leaving her.

Great selection of items that have been created and blessed by local artist witches. This shop will have something for everyone even readings for those that are brave enough. I really enjoyed shopping in Hex.
