About us

Our focus is on furnishing the most polished essentials and select accoutrements for occultists. We cater to the discerning whims of the esoteric bohemian, especially focusing on stylish comforts and beautification for the ritual space as well as the home.

We pride ourselves in carrying the finest magical tools and supplies. We also are honored to hold space for tarot, with dream interpretation, astrological readings, palmistry, and more.

The material, aesthetic, and spiritual requirements of the modern magician are all focused on with attention to detail while underlining pleasure, loveliness, and delight. We challenge ourselves daily to curate a truly inclusive selection of exquisitely made objects, ones that enhance the space they inhabit as well as the experience of whoever uses them. We call on our background in the art world as well as our eye for style to amass a truly exquisite collection of chic luxuries, educational materials, and essential services for your home, life, and altar.

Our mission with Déjà Vu is to support the needs of the community and be a place to share knowledge, seek education and guidance, and feel camaraderie with fellow magickal practitioners. We are much more than a magic shop. We want to help support everyone seeking their own path into hidden knowledge and divine secrets.

Déjà Vu is owned by Gem and Glenn Hotvet.

Gem has been hanging out in the occult section of the book store for 20+ years. Déjà Vu Esoterica is an outpouring of a life long interest in mythology, symbolism, witchcraft, and all things esoteric. This love letter to the craft and the Goddess is inspired by her depth of love for tarot and lenormand, obsession with art and myth, the gifts daily practice has brought forth, and and unquenchable thirst to learn more.
