English Sixpence - Lucky Sixpence - Sixpence Bridal Gift - Silver Sixpence

In England, we have used the *silver sixpence for many things, least of which, witchcraft! It is often used as a Faery offering and for scrying. Of course, the lucky sixpence has loads of other uses, not necessarily witchy. We always had a sixpence in our Christmas pudding for wealth in the coming months. My grandmother told me if a witch gives you a sixpence you will always be looked after and protected.

As a young girl, I remember when my older cousins married, the women would chant:

"Something old, something new,
Something borrowed something blue.
And a sixpence for your shoe."

Then, the bride would tuck the lucky silver sixpence into her shoe and she was ready for her wedding as she knew her lucky sixpence would bring financial luck to her married life.

It is the coin with which to pay the Fae or to give to them as an offering. It is also the coin that was used for many years to place on the eyelids of the deceased for them to pay Charon the ferryman for passage across the river Styx to the gates of the Underworld.

Silver sixpences are also used for scrying. The black cauldron is filled with water and the sixpence dropped in to it to reflect the Moonlight.

Another use for the sixpence is to find out who might be ill-wishing you. Take running water over which both the living and dead travel and put it into a dish with the sixpence. The person that is ill-wishing you will appear in the dish. Use drops of this water, once the identity has been estblished, to sprinkle on the ill-wished person, animal, crop or home and it will break the spell and return it to the sender.

*The sixpence you receive will most likely date between 1947 and 1967 and has been circulated, therefore, they are not being sold in mint condition. Silver sixpence was made between 1551 and 1947. After 1947 through to their demise after decimalisation (aka Decimal Day) on 15 February 1971, they have been made of nickel. Still, to this day we call them a silver sixpence,

If you have a silver polishing cloth, you can keep your sixpence shiny and new looking!

All essential oils/potions are created in the US and may only be sent via ground delivery because essential oils are flammable. For this reason, we can't post to other countries.

We do not not combine shipping as there isn't a need for it as you might need on eBay. Etsy takes care of the combining of items just as any online shop does.

We set our small per item fee to make up the difference in the increased heaviness of a parcel when a customer orders several items. This saves us time by not having to re-figure postage for larger orders. Then, Etsy does the rest by totting it all up and you have your postage fee!

Should we get it wrong, we always refund our customers if the shipping overage is more than 1.00. More often than not, it is we who underestimate and end up paying part of customer's postage :)
