Off the Beaten Path opened its doors in November 1997 as a metaphysical,
Interfaith, New Age store specializing in Wicca that was dedicated
to serving the devotional needs of the community. Our goal
was to provide a place where all people could shop for their
religious and metaphysical needs in a prejudice-free environment
comfortable in the knowledge that their beliefs were respected.
Our varied religious backgrounds, spiritual paths, and training
- both religious and metaphysical, provided us with a unique
insight. In March 2014, I closed the doors of Off the Beaten Path to take care of my husband who was battling Stage 4 lung cancer. He lost that battle on April 27, 2014.
