Hare In The Moonlight
BLUE MOON BAZAAR
At the Hare in the Moonlight we travel all over the place in search of amazing vintage and antique ritual equipment and paranormal publications and sometimes during our hunts we find a little something that might not fit into out "occult" remit, but still gives our whiskers a quiver.
So in the Blue Moon Bazaar you can browse our selection of vintage and antique items.
Take a trip through the Bazaar and see if any of our one of a kind items have found their new one of a kind owners :)
