Fancy bags for fancy cards.  (Gaian Tarot by JPC)

Fancy bags for fancy cards.  (Gaian Tarot by JPC)

One of the things that goes along with being a professional tarot reader is the propensity for deck hoarding. Most tarot decks are delivered in either a cardboard flip box, or an elaborate cigar box style thinger. The flip boxes are flimsy and fall apart pretty quickly, and the cigar boxes are gigantic and hard to carry around.

So, what do you do? You find tarot bags. I have some that were made by friends, a really terrible one that I made myself, and a few really expensive ones that I got when I was younger. What I've learned over the years, though, is that ZIPPER POUCHES are our salvation, brothers and sisters. And they're fucking $6.99.

They're the perfect size, they are sturdy and secure, and if you're lucky, you can find some really cute ones. This is where Blue Q comes in. Along with making really fantastic accidental-tarot bags, they make socks and boxes and totes and bathroom stuff and random other things. 

I emailed them to see if I could interview them for the site and they said yes! And they sent me some swag, which is greatly appreciated (although my husband made me share)  Below, you'll find the interview with amazing Blue Q Rep who wishes to remain anonymous, but I totally know who it is because psychic, duh.
