Illinois Metaphysical Stores of the Past & Present

Listings of shops, resources and informative sites in Illinois, and nearby Wisconsin and Indiana. Originally written in the 90’s, we have kept some of the listings below as archives for informative purposes. We encourage our visitors to submit new locations for us to add to the list.

Have a new site you think we should list? Broken link below or an error? Contact us and let us know!

Occult Bookstore 1164 N Milwaukee Ave., Chicago, IL 773-292-0995

Alchemy Arts  1203 W Bryn Mawr Ave., Chicago, IL 773-769-4970

Quest Bookstore & Shop

————————————————————————————————————————-

Below list is from 2005

 *caveat-
please call stores before trekking out to verify hours and operations – we are not able to keep track of all of them.
Not every store on the list is an “Occult’ Store, but you may still be able to obtain some supplies there.

**If it’s in green or striked through, its closed. Let us know if a store is listed as close, but is actually still in operation / new location.    

I have a list of addresses & phone numbers for ‘Botanicas’ in the Chicagoland area, at the bottom.  Botanicas are Hispanic religious/spiritual supply stores; containing supplies for Santeria and Voodoo traditions which utilize pretty much the same supplies Occultists and Pagans need.
