A new shop has opened in Dayton just a few feet away from the tattooed Jesus sign of Truth n Triumph Tattoo. Amanda Hamilton, formerly of Anything Under the Moon, has returned, re-opened and rededicated herself with to helping the wiccan/pagan community and those in need of guidance, counseling, supplies and just a good friend to talk to. Her new homestead is A Full Moon Rising at 603 Watervliet Avenue right off Mundale Avenue in the Belmont Business District. It’s an artisan retail store with all the best of the handmade, homemade crafts, gifts, goodies and necessities needed for the craft.
90% of Hamilton’s inventory is handcrafted and made with extra special care including soaps, incense, prayer candles, ritual items, smudge fans, smudge sticks, oils and dream-catchers. She also makes her own jewelry from a variety of stones, gems and minerals, and has plans for upcoming classes, workshops, tarot reading, and psychic readings.
Hamilton joined the Pagan community at 16 after spending a year and a half in a Dianic Coven. She opened Anything Under the Moon on her 18th birthday, becoming one of the best known shops of its kind in town for 24 years. Two months ago, she started a new beginning and vision under the light of the full moon. The shop specializes in candles with color symbology and essential oils with specific purpose. Hamilton’s a believer/follower of the 13 goals of a witch and The Wiccan Rede.
“I’m thrilled to be back in business and looking forward to serving the communities spiritual needs,” says Hamilton.
A Full Moon Rising also features a community bulletin board which local businesses are encouraged to use. Store hours are Monday-Saturday 10-7 and by appointment Sunday. 1-937-252-7000
