Aries Apothecary held its grand opening at its new location this past Saturday, April 15, 2017.  The shop moved from the Norfolk Flea Market on Military Highway to Hunter’s Mill Shoppes on Virginia Beach Boulevard just across the Norfolk border into Virginia Beach. The apothecary has been in business for three years and opened its doors at the new location on January 16. 

Aries Apothecary sells herbs, stones and crystals, candles, essential oils, and all-natural soaps, among other offerings.  The shop also features books from local authors including Grace Gemini, Aurora Thornton, and Annaliese Harris.  They offer consignments for local authors, artists, and craft persons.
