Down the old wooden stairs of The Old Flour Mill, one of the better known landmarks of the Top of Town in Ipswich, you’ll find the charming and quite magical, Soul Cauldron.
This is one of the several businesses that call the old mill site home.
The building includes remnants of the old mill that once ground Darling Downs wheat into flour to be sent on by rail to market in Brisbane.
As you enter at street level and wander down the stairs, a laneway of shops and businesses comes into view, as do the soaring original timber rafters high above.
Soul Cauldron specialises in books on quite diverse subjects relating to the mind, body and the metaphysical. You’ll find tomes on the faerie world, buddhism, positive affirmations and wikka, and everything in between.
Adding to mystical, magical ambience is the scent of incense in the air (and for sale) as well as candles, crystals, jewellery and, yes, even little steel cauldrons.
Paul loves it when people come in and tell him they’ve never seen a shop like it. He finds once people come down those stairs once, they’ll be back again for another look.
