Eye of Horus Metaphysical, founded in 2003, needs to be out of its current location before July 31st.  We only found out on July 1st that we had to move and so don't have all the funds we need.

We still need help. Although we are safe from the rocks, having raised the security deposit, our little ship is still facing the storm of moving and the costs involved.

The fact is, losing four days of income to actually move is destabalizing, just when we're going to have to pay for a lot of up front "housing" costs.

There are a number of expenses when opening a new location - phone lines, security system, signage, paint, truck rental and other expenses add up quickly to thousands of dollars. Since we didn't get to choose (and save for) our move, we are facing unexpected expenses. But we're not just asking for handouts.

Our perks offer you great savings, it's just a matter of delayed gratification. With discounted gift certificates and readings available after our move, you help us start our new location on a firm footing, plus you save 20% off of our regular prices.

Again, thank you for supporting us in this very interesting time.

About the New Location
We have a new place in mind, but we need to come up with first and last months rent and a security deposit.  Upfront to secure the lease. We can't share where the location is until we've actually signed the lease, but it's nearby, we won't be going far, and as soon as we sign we'll be updating you all with the details.

Everyone at the Eye is extremely excited about the new proposed space; and at a 47% savings, we know we can sustain our mission to not only provide the best products, but also serve the community. We will lose the labyrinth and event space, but still have a classroom. It is smaller, so we think the cozy feeling of our original store will return in a new form. We'll still have classes, readings, meetups, psychic fairs, author events and more.

Third Time's the Charm
Our first store was too small, the next one was too big, and this one will be just right!

Please contribute at whatever level you like and share, pick your perk, or just donate.  Thank you from Thraicie and Jane and all of the staff and readers at the Eye for your support and for being part of the Eye of Horus community.

Eye of Horus Celebrates 13 Years

Help us celebrate 13 years of Eye of Horus! We are still here because of your amazing support. So we want to invite you to a very special Friday Night:

October 28th Anniversary Costume Party

Where: Eye of Horus Metaphysical Store, 910 West Lake Street in Minneapolis.
When: 7pm to Midnight, Friday, Oct 28, 2016

This pre-Samhain soirée will feature door prizes for the first 50 customers, starting at 7:00, refreshments, hobnobbing and a mini-psychic fair. You don’t have to wear a costume, but you can get $5 off readings if you do. The theme? Anything magical, steampunk, occult, fantastic or fun. We will have three readers on hand until midnight. Call 612-872-1292 to reserve your reading in advance.

Eye of Horus first opened our doors on October 31st, 2003. We’ve moved a couple of times since then, but the 3rd location, at 910 West Lake Street, in Minneapolis, is a perfect fit.

Thank you to everyone for not only meeting, but exceeding our fundraising goal. We will be filming our happy dance at the next staff meeting to put up on YouTube.

It's August 21st today, twenty days after we opened in our new location and twenty days after our original provider was supposed to install our phone and internet service. After missed appointments, being told remotely that everything tests okay, and multiple attempts to work with them, we switched from DSL to cable and as of today have full phone service again and internet.

This gives us another reason for a happy dance. We've had other issues with the move - we needed a new AC unit, which we replaced yesterday. We also need to replace a broken top to a display case, which cracked during the move. But we expected some surprises. We're just happy to be connected again and fully in business!

$782 left to reach our goal. A blessed benefactor has opted to get lifetime readings from Thraicie, so we are almost there. Please share the URL: www.gofundme.com/save-eye ...remember, if we reach our goal, we will post a YouTube of staff doing our happy dance. Thanks!

Third Eye Update, just after midnight, August 1st. We are out of the old store, and though everything is in the new space, we aren't quite ready to open at 11a, as we had hoped. We don't have phone service yet (they are coming some time during the day, but we don't know when), and we still have quite a bit of unpacking to do. Send good energy vibes our way, please! We are still about 1800 shy of our fundraising, and it looks like we are losing 5 days of business instead of the planned 4. Not that we won't be fabulous when we do open. But we would love to open tomorrow (er, today). It's Thraicie's birthday and our wedding anniversary. Please share the URL: www.gofundme.com/save-eye We are getting so close, we don't want to lose momentum!
