October Witchfinder Contest

Each year, wyrd and witchy Halloween merchandise finds its way into stores across the country. From fake bottles of pickled spider glands to signs cautioning the reader to beware low-flying brooms, this season is a paradise for anybody who loves decorating their home with silly, spooky junk. To celebrate, we’re holding a contest for the best goofy Witch Stuff you POMEs find while you’re out shopping.

Join us for our October Witchfinder Contest — a contest where witchfinders are more about appreciating cool witches, and less about burning high-as-balls old ladies at the stake. We want to see the strangest, kitschiest witch-themed Halloween decor that you find this month. Take a pic of your favorites and send them our way via email or social media. At the end of the month, we’ll pick our favorites. Our winner will receive a one-month gift subscription to CroneCrate and a few other POMEmag goodies, including a copy of our brand new spellbook: “Charismatic Witchcraft: Volume One.” We’ll also pick a second place winner, who will receive the spellbook and a couple of POMEmag stickers. Any additional runners-up will receive a POMEmag sticker.


How To Enter:

-Take a picture of witch-themed merchandise you find during the month of October

-Send this picture to us, including where you found it. Contact us:

-If you’re in the running for one of our fabulous prizes, a POMEmag Editorial Crone will reach out to you via email or DM (for social media) to make sure we can mail you your prize! If you enter via social media, make sure that you’re following us so that we can DM you if you win!
