HOUSTON (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Looks like that “old black magic” is making a comeback these days.

That’s according to Joanne Waller, manager of a Houston- based “voodoo supermarket” called Stanley’s which has served voodoo worshipers since 1938.

Waller says sales of voodoo dolls and voodoo paraphernalia have increased dramatically and are expected to continue into next year.

Most folks purchasing voodoo dolls are middle class “average Joes” who are buying “love dolls” in an attempt to improve their relationships.

Other popular items include “lottery candles” to help bring financial security and something called the “Go Away Evil Air Freshener.” It supposedly can rid a room of evil spirits with just one spray.

Waller says the voodoo shop’s staff can answer most questions about voodoo or spell casting but if there’s a snag, the ghost of the former owner may be able to help you. Workers claim he’s been hanging around the shop since he died in 1992.
