If you’ve ever needed a deck of tarot cards, a unique piece of jewelry, a wind chime, sage to clear away the negative energy and help you sleep, or an intuitive reading, Paradise Found (17 E. Anapamu St.) is the place to go. Yet, like so many Santa Barbara businesses, Paradise Found has been hit hard by COVID-19. “Since the state-mandated closure on March 20, our modest cash reserves are being rapidly depleted, and we need your help if we are to survive,” writes owner Teresa Taylor on the Paradise Found website. While the brick-and-mortar shop, which opened in 1986, remains closed, Taylor has adapted to the pandemic by creating a robust online shop.
