Hidden Department of Notions-- Until Death Do You Part

Ages ago and a little after the Great Depression there were stores called Notion departments. If you have a great grandmother or even an old grandmother they may remember these places. This was a store were you could go and buy thread, cloth, buttons and anything related to sewing.

Now just like today and in the age of reason people have all different beliefs. Some are into Wicca some are Christian and many others are all different things. Basically it was just like today but things were kept much, much quieter.
On a little known alley way in the deep in NYC the practice of the occult was in high practice.  The things we don't know today were not forgotten to one lost family. This family worked around the clock for those like them, those into the paranormal and the occult. Their first name was Smith. Yes it is a common name but what they did was anything but.
Inside the shop which seemed to appear only at the beginning of dusk you could find all sorts of things,related to sewing. While many people found their way in some found exactly what they were looking for, those in the know. A special code word was used to open up the back room which was filled with flying silver fish. At least that is how people described the spirits that resided there. Opening the door was like walking into a room where silver glitter was thrown into the air. That is how many spirits filled that room. The other thing that filled that room was tons and tons of buttons. Each one was designed for beauty, creativity and supreme power. They were also created so no one would notice them other then to say how original. They were not jewelry that could be stolen and could be worn anywhere, on a coat, on the inside of a jacket or just carried around.
Here you will find many of the ones my grandmother collected. Below you will find the description and what they do.
This piece holds all the cliches of being Romeo and Juliet, except it's better than Romeo and Juliet.  Why?  Because nobody has to die.  I always thought Romeo and Juliet-- as well as most of those lovey-dovey tragedies-- were kind of pointless.  They find their true love, then they die.  It's like having your caking and not being able to eat it, too.  Well, I say that if you are going to find your true love, then you might as well enjoy it-- so did the people who made this button!  Not only does this button go through the astral realms to bring forth your true love to you, but it grants health and wellness to both you and your love.  The kind of healing that it does for you and your lover are both physical and spiritual.  Not only that but it will keep your household safe, as well as both of your souls.  It wards a way evil, darkness, disease, and sickness.  It will give you life, longevity, true love, and vitality.  About the only that that it stops short of granting. literally, is immortality.  Other than that, you can have your love and enjoy it, too-- Until death do you part!!
