The Black Broom
About Us


With many years experience in past incarnations and a passion for all things occult, The Black Broom was founded in 2004. It is jointly owned and operated by Thomas and Michelle and based in Los Angeles. The name of our store was inspired by Thomas' grandmother who kept a black broom near her fireplace to collect the ashes that would accumulate there. As the ashes were swept out the front door, any evil spirits and unwanted energies were as well banished from the home. Banishing in this manner was quite common throughout Germany at the time.


Dupree and Spooky Here at The Black Broom, we are constantly and persistently coming up with new ideas, many inspired by our patrons, and creating items which we love and hope you will love too! We are dedicated crafters, illustrators, sculptors, art and history lovers working toward the shared goal of offering original, quality pieces as well as reproductions of our favorite antiques. Inspired by a myriad of influences from folk art to various systems of magick to militaria to Victorian & Edwardian ephemera to numerous writers, movements, films, music, art, and lore, we absolutely love what we do and feel tremendous pride and privilege in being given an opportunity to bring these fine, unusual, niche, and maybe even familiar items to you.


The Black Broom is ever changing and growing, and always creating. Thank you for visiting and drop by often as we have plenty of new and exciting things in the works!
