Alchemy Arts is a real, actual, store, with walls and everything.   We are conveniently located at the corner of Broadway and Bryn Mawr in Chicago, just west of the Bryn Mawr Red Line Stop.  There is ample paid street parking in front of the shop, or less ample free parking just west of the shop.  One may reach us easily by car, bus, or train.  For those who do not trust the internet to give them directions, please call the shop for the most accurate and precise directions you have ever received in your life.

Store Hours are: Monday through Saturday: 10am-8pm, Sunday 11am-6pm.  As we are living on Pagan Time, we might arrive a little late, or stay very late.  We only accept phone calls when the shop is actually open.

How Long Have You Been Around? 2017-07-26T13:17:06+00:00

We have been in business since 1989.  We have seen our customers’ children grow up.  We laugh at stores established in 20anything.  We have seen over three locations, but have occupied the current location for over 16 years.  Moreover, it has been tBoBM behind the counter pretty much the whole time.

Do You Have A Reader In The Shop? 2017-07-26T13:17:06+00:00

NO.  We do not now, nor have we ever had, nor will we ever have … a reader of any kind in the shop.  Please see the blog entry on this subject for the full rant.

Are You Guys Witches? 2016-08-31T19:16:55+00:00

Though, to our unending irritation, we have received this prank call approximately one million times … the question is legit:  Do you do this stuff, or just sell it?  Are you for real?  The answer is yes: we are magicians, we are witches, we do this.  We can answer your questions with authority and accuracy.  We draw upon a vast wealth of knowledge and experience.  We are for real.
