Of course, as soon as I finished complaining, I looked up to find this:
That's right: Lauren de Laurence. This Lauren de Laurence, the man who founded the Order of the Black Rose and the Order of the White Willow. The man who was eventually arrested for mail fraud (due to a judge not liking his explaination of the paranormal, after hitting an employee over the head for staring up his female employees' skirts).
What an amazing find. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the universe for answering my antique store wishes.
