About Us

 

Our founder, Angela Monaco, is many things:

 

She is a woman.

She is a Taurus (check out her full birth chart here).

She is a dreamer.

She is a boss.

 

Angela is also someone that has been through some extremely tough sh*t. She grew up with a single mom with bipolar disorder. She never knew her Dad; he died when she was five and she ended up in foster care.

 

She spent countless hours in her room scrapbooking and creating with beads. Art was a place of respite for her and that sanctuary eventually gave birth to The Ritual Shoppe.

 

 

RITUAL is an intersection of so many things...spirituality and shadow, wellness and beauty, integrity and pain. Just like you, it’s a living, breathing, entity that is ever learning and evolving.

 

When you search our site, you’ll encounter some of Angela’s favorite things (that we hope will soon become some of your own!). From handcrafted jewelry, beauty & apothecary to crystals and tarot decks, the Ritual Shoppe is home to gift-able treasures by many of Angela’s favorite independent artists and closest friends.

 

We’re not just “love and light people” but more show up and be of service to the world kind of people. We’re less interested in talking about what’s wrong with the world and more in making the people around us happy.

 

We create that atmosphere by feeling our feelings but also asking for help when we need it.

 

A lot of other spiritual shops say “This is it!” But, we’re in the business of not following rules. We believe that YOU have the answers you seek, and we’re here to support you on that multi-layered journey by making it a bit more accessible.

 

So...welcome! We’re so happy you’re here.


 

Thoughts? We want to hear from you! Get in touch.

 

PS: The Ritual Shoppe team is just as special as the items it carries. Each member is a mover and shaker in the Philadelphia art community themselves, each carrying a unique gift into the space. Get to know the Ritual team here!
