A self-described witch in Massachusetts claims that she is the target of an ongoing campaign of harassment which culminated with a suspected arson attempt over the weekend. According to a local media report, Lucky Cabral is the proprietor of the apothecary shop Sanctum Folkorica, which offers various accoutrements for practicing Wiccans as well as psychic readings for magical-minded people in and around the city of New Bedford. However, she says, the nearly three-year-old business has recently drawn the ire of a resident who apparently believes she is practicing the proverbial dark arts.
Cabral told radio station WBSM that the strangeness began back in early March when a woman appeared outside her shop and splashed holy water onto both the building as well as cart stationed outside of the shop. Initially dismissing the odd event as a "harmless incident," things took a more worrisome turn later in the month when the same individual made "a small campfire of sage in my doorway," presumably in an attempt to 'cleanse' the site. It would appear that this individual has made no secret about her intentions as, Cabral revealed, "she’s been buying sage all over downtown" and, when asked why she needed so much of the material, the woman indicated that "she's trying to get rid of a bad witch."
