About The Purple Raven

Origins

We have been selling Metaphysical products since the mid 1990s. Unfortunately due to some family issues and moving home we had to put the business on hold for a few years. We started building the business again in 2017 and the next step was to start our website.

Who Are We?

We are a family based business comprising myself Lydia, my husband Tom and 2 grandchildren Abbie, 14 and Jess 12. We all have our own roles to play, I deal mainly with the website and sourcing stock and Tom, a carpenter, makes a lot of our handmade items including most of the wands, athames and other items. The children help with the website and on the stall when we attend shows plus helping to collect and sort the natural goods we sell.

Materials

All our handmade wooden items are made by collecting fallen trees, we don't cut down any tress. We always ask permission when taking any branches, leaves and fruits and leave an offering to thank the tree for its donation.

Home

We are based in Nottinghamshire, not far from Sherwood Forest. We live backing onto ancient woodland and the peace and tranquillity that affords.
