Best Places To Buy Indie Tarot Decks Online In Australia

Mystic Mondays Tarot Card

Being a Libra Sun, I am a huge fan of visual arts and I believe collecting card decks is similar to collecting art. I love opening up a pack of cards and admiring the intricate artwork and detail on each one.

Ever since tarot began in the 15th century, there has been thousands of different decks created, each with their own beautiful and artistic designs and meanings. The Tarot Museum in Belgium houses a collection of over 2,500 decks alone and that's only a small handful of what's circulating today!

If you’re a fan of contemporary tarot designs, there are a number of interesting artist-published decks floating around that are uncommon and exclusive. Most of the time, you can purchase them online and straight from the creator themselves. Unfortunately, for those of us living in Australia, a lot of indie creators are located overseas and sometimes it can take a while for the cards to get to us.

Although indie decks can be hard to source locally, it’s not impossible. There are a handful of retailers (both online and in-store) who stock rare and one-of-a-kind tarot and oracle decks. Here is a list of some local Australian stores who offer indie tarot and oracle cards.

Two Sides Tarot (NSW)

Okay, so the online store Look Dollicious isn’t based in Australia but it’s such a dang cute shop that I had to add it to this list!
