Witchcraft doesn't always come cheap. I currently have a mere 19 items in my wishlist, mostly books, totaling to over $300. I realize there may be cheaper resources elsewhere, but aside from that, you'll need to acquire supplies whenever you need them. Unless you make absolutely everything yourself, something I can't see everyone doing (myself included), it has to come from somewhere.
I've read a few things and one thing caught my attention: Witches crafting for another should do so without thought of compensation of any kind.
If this is true, what's a poor witch to do? The job market in the US is all but kaput, and anyone who's seen The Dark Knight can recall the Joker's philosophy "If you're good at something, never do it for free."
"An it harm none, do as ye will", the Wiccan rede, seems to permit the sale of magic as long as it doesn't harm anyone in one interpretation.
I'd also like to note that the online shop offers spell kits as well.
Thoughts? Opinions? What's a poor witch to do?
