Antique Stores And Ghosts:
Are They Haunted?
As a general rule, some antique stores are in haunted buildings and some antique stores carry haunted items and some antique stores carry both.
Whether a shop or the objects inside are haunted all depends on:
Where the shop is located
What type of items the store sells
How attuned the shopkeeper is to such matters
When people die and their goods are sold or auctioned off, sometimes, a piece of this person will stay with their most treasured items until these items find a suitable, admiring home.
Then once an item(s) that was haunted finds a good home, often, whatever spirit that was attached to it will depart naturally. If not and just to be on the safe side, it's always a good idea to cleanse artifacts and antiques when you bring them into a new home.
If an antique store is in a haunted building, and there is a resident ghost around - like a prior shopkeeper or someone who died in the area - there may be little you can do to release the spirit, however, often an agreeable living arrangement can often be made by talking to it. Some Spirits take it upon themselves to look after shops, pieces of land or even houses, as I mention in my eBook Transitions, and there is little you can do to talk them another way.
However, the spirits who look after objects, are most often former deceased owners of items and they will depart the shop, when those items depart. Whether they go elsewhere or along with the item that’s leaving is completely up to the person who takes the piece with them and the spirit themselves, though most part ways in some way or another, in time.
