Angel Tarot Card Reading at Tinley Park Practical Magic Boutique

Last July, 2018, I visited the new spiritual holistic boutique that opened in Downtown Tinley on Oak Park Avenue, across the street from the Tinley Park Chamber of Commerce’s office. I neglected to write about my experience visiting the boutique so I’m going to write about it now, almost one year later because it still sticks in my mind like it was yesterday. Yes, it was that kind of memorable experience.

I happen to be in the neighborhood attending one of our monthly Marketing Committee meetings at the Chamber office and I was struck by the storefront. It made me think of the 1998 movie of the same name Practical Magic which starred Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman. I like the movie and I’ve always been an admirer of the mystical, so I thought I’d drop in and see what’s inside.

Two young ladies greeted me named Tara and Niya and I asked them if the name of the shop meant they also do magic. Obviously inside the store there are incense sticks for every need, crystals, salts, oils, candles, jewelry, and other body essentials, but they told me they also do tarot card readings, angel readings, and oracle readings. Having just had a baby two months prior and I was curious at this point in my life about how things were looking for me as a new mom. They charge $1 a minute for any reading, with $5.00 off any purchase thereafter of $30.00 or more.

Tarot Cards

I went to the back with one of them and she explained what each reading is good for. Ultimately I chose an angel card reading, which is good for the times in your life when you are looking for guidance with your life path. Essentially, it’s your guardian angel telling you through cards what’s up and what’s on the outlook.

The most fascinating part about my angel card reading was how she told me that my baby is a crystal baby. I found some article about how to identify a crystal baby and what they are, essentially what the card had to say was that having my my daughter was a form of healing for myself and that she is a positive force in my life that kind of gives me a second chance at living my best life.

Overall it was a really transcendent reading and very fair. I’d love to go back again. Oh and I must admit that I bought this spray that I know is silly, but they told me that it attracts money and famous people to you. It was a total impulse buy. You know I haven’t use it in a while, maybe I should whip it out again. I mean technically we did see an influx in income this February with a new client to our business Geoffresh. Hhhmmm, maybe it did work and just took a little time. Whatever the case, I definitely recommend Practical Magic in Tinley Park. It’s got a great vibe, no pressure, just great customer service that is educational, and the services and products are really nice. Check it out some time if you’re in the area.

Discover Tinley Park Expo 2019 Review

Discover Tinley is a mixed bag where local Tinley Park denizens as well as curious out-of -towners come to get free stuff, find something their looking for (for example: remodelers), be pleasantly suprised by a new discovery, and kill time. What you find are usually over 100 booths, each with a different business or entity. You have your insurance companies, restaurants, and other businesses, but then you have things like the Will County Model Railroad Club and the Tinley Park Historic Society that are not looking to drum up more business.

This year’s Discover Tinley Expo was slated to have more for families and children. See flyer below.

Now that I’m a mom I was curious to see the new attractions geared towards families and children. The last time I went to Discover Tinley was back in April of 2017 as a vendor alongside my husband for our business, Geoffresh. Today at Discover Tinley we were the general public, and this was our experience.

Redevelopment of Tinley Park Display at Discovery Tinley 2019

The first thing we saw was a display of the renderings of the future of Downtown Tinley Park and a board that the village wanted people to write out and post what kind of business they would like to see come to the downtown area.

Next we visited the Tinley Park Historical Society. One of the people who works there recommended I join a Facebook group they started called, Tinley Park! You Know You Are From There When You Know Its History…Over 3,200 members strong!

Going with the family spirit, the Tinley Park Library’s booth featured a game called Plinko. Where the disc landed determined what you could win in the raffle.

This caught our attention, a new business coming to Orland Hills (neighboring Tinley Park) for teaching kids how to code in different computer languages called Code Ninjas.
Lou Malnati Pizza at Discover Tinley 2019
The concession stand area had nacho chips and pretezels, and booths had candy to give out, but Lou Malnati’s was a godsend for giving away something more substantial: pizza!
High Touch High Tech at Discover Tinley 2019
A lot was said about High Touch High Tech for their science demos, but it was pretty boring unfortunately.

Summary

So was this year’s Discover Tinley Park Expo efforts to have a rich offering of attractions for families and children a success? In my opinion it was a work in progress.

The demos were very small scale. I think I passed most of them up because they were so shoestring I didn’t notice them. And while a local celebrity appearance from Svengoolie was a neat idea, he’s a bit more dark and adult for kids.

The event had pretty good attendance, but it lacks in color, verve, and spectacle. I think it’s time to revamp the expo, take the gray shale colored space and make it into a spring block party that leads up to the summer block parties on Oak Park Avenue. I don’t know it this is the best decision, but I know that part of what helps a community boost its spirit and culture is to take occassions like the expo and do more than the bare minimum with them. It’s frankly dull walking through the rows and rows of businesses and organizations, even they look like they’d rather be somewhere else. There are blips of things of interest like the mermaid photo op for my daughter or trying to win prizes, but there’s got to be a better way to inspire people to come out and spend time at the Tinley Park Convention Center. What’s another carrot that could be dangled besides free stuff?
