Do you know this is one of the most common questions I get asked.
‘Where can I buy a Tarot deck?’
Some of us are not lucky enough to walk down to the local book store and look at an amazing collection of Tarot cards and have the ability to buy a Tarot deck.
So I have given you my favorite places to go and look for Tarot decks online and perhaps it will entice you to buy a Tarot deck.

I do not recommend buying secondhand decks when you are just starting to learn Tarot. It is much better to buy a new fresh, energetic deck. However I AM a massive fan of second hand shops and if you find a juicy Tarot bargain and you cannot resist, just make sure to give it a really good energetic clean.
The Tarot Garden – A wonder land of all things Tarot, especially rare decks! The owners of this site REALLY KNOW Tarot inside out and are happy to answer any questions you have.
www.amazon.com – The King of online bookstores but missing the personal touch for me. But yep – anything you want, Amazon will have it. I personally do not buy from them due to their ethics and their crazy post prices.
www.betterworldbooks.com – Free postage to anywhere in the world and a % of money goes to charity so you can feel good when you shop. A great site to support.
www.bookdepository.com – Free postage to anywhere in the world and a great selection of decks in a wide range of prices.
www.ebay.com – You can find anything on EBay! Especially if you are after out of print, rare or collector decks.
www.llewellyn.com – A large selection of Tarot decks and books from the famous esoteric publishers. They also have a Tarot blog which has great articles.
www.tarotopia.com.au – An online Australian Tarot website if you want to shop more local down under. Holistic Shop in the UK is a similar concept with a wide range of decks. The benefit of shopping at these sites is usually free post and supporting businesses in your country.

Many creators of Tarot decks sell from their own websites such as The Wild Unknown Tarot deck. The wonderful artist Ciro Marchetti where you can buy his AMAZING decks.
Beth at Little Red Tarot sells independent creator decks at her shop. Yum – check it out.
If you want to go local (as in your country) and support local bookstores consider something like HIVE in the UK or something similar in the US. Because of biggies like Amazon, lovely corner bookstores are closing down and that is a big shame. This is your way to support these local struggling businesses. If you want to support your local esoteric bookstore but cannot travel there then consider buying online from them such as Namaste in New York.
You can also find people trying to publish their Tarot decks via crowdfunding websites such as Kickstarter and Indiegogo. Check in the Search Box for TAROT. You might find something inspirational and become one of the funder’s who make a creators dream come true.
