Best Store for Fighting Bad Juju: Rondo's Temple Sales

Staff Pick

RONDO’S TEMPLE SALES is the sort of store you might expect to find under an L-train track in the Bowery circa 1940. Inside the dingy, little storefront is a time-warp array of folklore remedies, voodoo candles and spell-casting powders — all with irresistible old-school packaging. Where else could you find a “jinx-removing, drive away evil mojo bag”? How about “shut your mouth” spray to silence liars, gossips and trash-talkers? Or a “triple-strength gamblers kit” to help you win at video poker? And has the USDA actually approved sales of “monkey hand” charms, even if they do help with gambling, luck and protection? Your guess is as good as ours.
