The postman just brought me a first edition of the Celtic Shamans pack, that I found for a bargain. I’m really excited!! I believe that the second edition is getting hard to find too at the moment? I wonder if it will also go out of print.

OMG 

 

These are BEAUTIFUL.

 

I'm heart farting over here.

 

Now I really want the paradoxical blue and purple, to make the collection complete. Not sure what my chances are though.

I'm pulled most to the regular paradoxical, but honestly they are all really nice so it is a hard pick. The regular is still awesome, has such a cool old-style vibe the paradoxicals cannot have.

 

I really like the alternative Judgment card I got with the regular paradoxical, the one with the three people cowering in the massive mouth.

 

I also put the alternative regular devil card I got with the Spanish(?) text instead of english in to the regular version. Diablo seems so much more kickbutt to me heh.

@Tagi ooooh i didn't realize the other decks came with alternate cards! do they also have alternate trumps? 

 

which deck did the devil come with? My regular deck came with an alternate version of the Tower called The Lightning, and it's awesome. i thought all the decks did, but maybe not?

All three came with The Lighting (the paradoxicals being paradoxical Lightning to match). They also came with the same 10 extra art/oracle cards (the paradoxicals being paradoxical to match).

 

My regular paradoxical had alternative Judgment, Star and one other Im forgetting. The alternative paradoxical star was the man with the telescope, the one in the deck naturally is the card with the sea lady resting on the bank). 

 

I should take a picture of alll the extra cards I got when I get home, there were so many in this package.

The Dark Mansion is fantastic, congratulations!

 

Postie delivered my second Patrick Valenza order which contained Mildred Payne's Secret Pocket Oracle (2nd ed) and the vistitor cards (which I bought as a gift for my partner).

 

I'm still waiting on the Sola Busca and have Mythical Creatures preordered so I'm going to have to cool it on the deck purchases for a few months.

 

I'm going to try zero to 1 decks a month. I'm going to have to select from my wishlist carefully XD

I am having an incredible tarot buying week! last night while trawling ebay in the wee hours of the morning I found a copy of the Tarot of the Third Millennium that was wildly underpriced compared to the normal prices i see it listed for, so I am now happily awaiting it! 

 

And then, another happy surprise! I recently discovered that the creator of the much-coveted Tyldwick Tarot also did a series of lenormand designs, and they're all stunning: https://www.mysteryentertainerproducts.com/malpertuis-cards  I mentioned this on the lenormand thread and @katrinka advised me to make a saved ebay search for malpertius lenormands, and I... completely forgot to go do that, oops, which makes it astonishing that I just managed to stumble across someone selling a copy of the Malpertius Classic Crime Lenormand, which is apparently a private deck that the designer never made publicly available, but would instead gift to friends and special clients. I am aghast that anyone would sell it and even more aghast that I managed to find it!!!! 

 

I'm currently awaiting the arrival of a large number of decks, all either being shipped internationally or waiting on a kickstarter, but these just got bumped to the top of my anticipation list. I'm so excited!

And my hubby got the Everyday Witch Oracle for me. It was delivered this afternoon. I think they are lovely but I'm kinda pissed that they aren't numbered. 🙄

I have it!!  I got it the other day!!  It's fabulous!

 

And I got the Sola Busca today!!  Only 10 more in stock.  I have waited over 6 months for this deck and it's worth it.  The companion book that comes with it does give actual tarot meanings to the major arcana cards and I can't wait to do an actual reading with the deck!  I have 3 Sola Busca's now! :bubble_blove:

@Saturn Celeste I very much want a Sola Busca deck but I've yet to sit down and learn anything about which deck/editions I should go for. As someone with three of them, do you have any advice about which one I should pick?

 

(Also I am curious about whether we are still using the unboxing thread for posting about new arrivals, or posting here, or in both places, or does it even matter? haha!)

I recommend the one I listed above.  There is a slight chance you can get one still.  I waited a long time for it but it's worth it for the book.  It is the only companion guide (it's Lo Scarabeo so the English section is small, it only deals with the majors but it's the majors of the deck that never had defined interpretations.  The deck above will be the easiest to read with that guide book. 😉

 

Yes, use the unboxing thread for sure!  I wanted to get the picture up because it is such a limited quantity left.  It just got shipped today and they have only 10 8 left.

I brushed the dust off my Spanish skills, and ordered one of the 3000 copies of the "Françoise Heri 1718" (2016-reproduction), for 39 Euro + shipping at a Spanish online store.

 

In retrospect, I think I should have bought two decks on the same shipping since I can't find the deck on Amazon, and there are only three copies on eBay for prices from $178.99 to $249.99.

 

They have decks left if someone's interested.

I have a copy. They are still in stock for original price here in Sweden (much the same as what you paid), but I’m sure the shipping isn’t much cheaper.

But there is a difference, I think.


Those that you list are published in 2017 and are unnumbered. While the one I ordered is published in 2016 and given an unique number (up to 3000).
