Announcement    Welcome to Wytch Feathers! ....A creative lil' shoppe *by a creative*, me - Carol Ochs (like "Oaks"), offering you handcrafted comforts, trinkets, treasures to soothe, adorn, and decorate the enchanted soul and nest! You'll *know it* .....if treasures here call to you! Thanks so much for your visit and interest in us! We ALWAYS aim to please, so if you ever have any issue with an acquisition, please let us know so we can make-it-right to your satisfaction! We entertain custom requests, so feel free to ask!

You'll find here handcrafted soaps, potions, hand spun hand knit fiber crafts (many one of a kind), mythic fantasy art, hand-poured apothecary jar candles, wood burned pyrograhy art! We officially began selling our wares in 1994, via our website, Ancient Alchemy. We're located in a wee cottage surrounded by fairy gardens in San Diego, CA. We are a a smoke-free environment, and pet-friendly...my critters are a huge part of my life. All crafting materials and finished goods are stored away from pet access however.

Sometimes you'll find similar items here, but at different price points. This is reflective of differing materials used that may cost more, or less.....or time required to make something. Example: Some of my fiber crafts are made of art yarn handspun by me, others of pre-made yarn. Hand-spinning yarn myself adds time/cost to a project, but yields a very special, usually one-of-a-kind item you'll not find anywhere else!

If you order more than one item, I combine shipping as much as possible depending on the packing requirements of the items (i.e. art prints that need to be packed flat vs. heavy candles, etc.) and will refund you the difference!

Re: the name "WytchFeathers"...people often ask me if I'm a witch...apparently because I --*do things witches do"-- according to them (?), like conjure soaps & herbal preparations & remedies, I pour candles, I spin a spinning wheel, and create all manner of cottage crafts. I had no idea that witches "in particular" do those things....I've just carried on craft traditions I learned as a child that my womenfolk taught me! If that makes me a witch, then I must be. (?) LOL! Or maybe I'm just a regular old everyday enchanted hippie soul...I do afterall, believe in myth, magic, and that anything is possible...especially when you love to create....and I DO!

An enchanted throwback...

Plucked from another time I suspect, I sometimes wonder how I landed here, but I seem to have brought my fascination with olden handcrafted arts, with me....many were taught to me by the womenfolk in my family growing up. I considerate it an honor to know and carry on these crafts! ! My hands are never idle, always making SOMETHING. Wise Woman Earth magic (taught to me by my Gran), herb & botanical soaps & potions, candles, hand spun-hand knit fiber creations, and spirited paintings and wood-burned art.....all treasures a free-spirited boho gypsy hippie witch tends to surround herself with and give as gifts!

I live (with my adorable husband) and work in my Southern California cottage home where I am surrounded by enchanted gardens, a soap workshop, an art studio, a patio garden that is sunny nearly year-round to craft in, two black cats and two huge black Newfoundland dogs who are my constant and dearest companions and reminders to get out and hike daily. Ours is a smoke-free home, but as said, we have pets who are all bathed weekly and kept out of all craft supplies, storage, and direct production.

I hope *you* find a treasure or two to surround yourself with, and remind you of your own roots and spirit! I deeply appreciate your appreciation of and support of "handmade" art forms and livelihoods! I've been crafting my entire life, and as a full-time profession since 1994. Prior to that I was a surgical nurse who then wanted to stay home to raise my three children, and I re-fell in love with crafting, decided to make it my new career!

Thanks so much for coming by, and please do stop by often! ~Carol :)

    A romantic throwback, you could say. No craft seems to go un-explored by me or my ambition to try it! From a long line of crafters; I learned to sew, knit, crochet, embroider, mix, plant, and potion! I'm most at-home among olden, magical things....
