CUSP Magical Products is an online store that is owned and operated by authors and public speakers, Katrina and Eric Rasbold. For years, they offered their products at Botánica de La Reina and Two Sisters Botánica in Roseville, California, as well as at popular festivals in the Sacramento and El Dorado County areas of California. In October 2017, the Rasbolds closed their storefront to focus on the promotion of the CUSP spiritual process and their books. They lecture at Pantheacon in San Jose, California, as well as continuing to work the local festival circuit each year.
In creating the business model for CUSP Magical Products, the owners gave mindful consideration to ideas like, “What magical items do we use most often? What items are most sacred to us?” Their book Energy Magic was a number one best seller in Amazon’s category of Neopaganism for eight weeks and is an exploration of the properties of sacred energy: what speeds it up, what slows it down, and how do we direct it most efficiently. These concepts work together to determine the inventory for the online and festival presence of CUSP Magical Products.
What is different about CUSP Magical Products? Unlike most botánicas and magical stores, the owners make most of the inventory themselves. What they do not personally produce, they purchase from carefully selected suppliers who understand the importance of how the items are harvested, packaged, and handled. The greatest of care goes into the inventory of CUSP Magical Products
