Our mission is to connect you with tools, techniques and teachers to empower you in realizing your full potential—shining a light on the path of self-discovery so you can know the unique value you bring to the world.

We carry the area’s best selection of crystals and stones, incense, candles, smudging supplies, artisan jewelry, crystal and metal singing bowls, sound healing tools, natural body care products, unique statues and decor from around the world, books, oracle and tarot decks, meditation and yoga supplies and much, much more.

We are excited to also offer you a wide array of holistic services, educational opportunities and events from a team of experienced and vetted independent practitioners. Each of the individuals on the practitioner team are exceptional in the gifts and services they share and are eager to assist you on your journey.

Evolve began in its current home at 54 N. Williams St. as a similar shop called Quintessence in 1999. In 2005, the shop changed hands and was re-named Evolve—a name that continues to suit the shop well. Since 2014, it has been owned by Melinda and Don Wells, who have been lifelong students as well as teachers of all that the space provides, and are passionate about sharing their hearts with this vibrant and diverse community of seekers.
