We still have over 2,300 Thai amulets that we need to sell! We are considering another massive sale this Summer, same as our usual annual sale, but not sure how to go about it. Ideally we would sell the amulets by the tray – there are 40 amulets per tray. Problem is, the cost of each would be a lot for individuals that wanted to take advantage of the amulet sale. Those looking to buy bulk items would be really very happy because we could offer forty amulets at a time for a deep discount – around 50%.
Our main site is: Thai Amulet Sales >
Our Shop is: Thai Amulet Sales at Shopify >
We looked at our statistics for the past 6 years, and the growth of visitors coming to our tiny site has really grown steadily. Business too is going along well. Still, we are considering selling the website so we can better focus on some other projects that are doing even better than this business. Filling amulet orders isn’t difficult, and it isn’t very time consuming either, but it does take us away from our other pursuits.
If you would like to talk about purchasing this business – let us know. The price would be under $30,000 USD. This takes into account a multiple of monthly net and our amulet, necklace, bracelet, and other items in inventory. Another scenario is, if we don’t sell the business, we need to ramp it up considerably so we have a reason to focus on it. Ideally the sales would be about 3x what they are now. This would give us a good reason to continue the site because it would grow to a size that makes it our primary income business. If you would like to talk about investing in the business, let us know too.

We have had these gold plated cased amulets in stock for about two months and we have yet to be able to put them on the site on a proper page. If you are interested in one of these, just send us email and tell us which one. We’ll create a Paypal invoice that you can use to purchase the amulet. You will receive a free necklace and a couple of free blessed Buddhist bracelets when you purchase one of these below.
Luang Phor Tuad amulets are always in very high demand, all over Thailand and even in Burma and India. We have a number of people from India requesting LPT amulets frequently, but we don’t sell to buyers in India or Pakistan. Sorry, there have been too many scams when we’ve done so in the past.
We just returned from a trip to Nakhon si Thammarat, where we were able to again find some very unique amulets – these, solid silver Jatukam Ramathep style amulets, from our favorite temple – Wat Mahathat in the city center.
We found about five unique solid silver amulets that we have not seen before. These are originals, straight from the original source of the Jatukam amulets of Thailand. These are not copies, they are blessed (the temple sells no unblessed amulets), and they are great collector’s items to hand down as you pass, so your family can enjoy them and hand them down to their own kids.
If you don’t have any blessed Buddhist items to hand down to your children and grandchildren, these are the perfect gifts. We priced them right – see here:
Here is a list of the Thai amulets we have – the important deities and other people and symbols, animals, and whatnot – we have on our amulets:
Buddha – Sathorn, Chinnarat, Emerald Buddhas, Somdej, other Unique Buddhas
Kwan Yin – the goddess of compassion. We have Kwan Yin riding a tiger, standing in a flowing gown, in the shape of Ganesha, etc.
Ganesha – Ganesh, the Hindu elephant god, the god of obstacles.
Shiva – father of Ganesh, also a Hindu god.
Garuda – the god of everything, the god of all gods – in Thai mythology.
Nong Kwak – the “money coming in” amulets.
Luang Phor Tuad – Thailand’s most famous monk.
Ajarn Jumnien – Thailand’s good luck monk.
Pra Biddar – Pidta, Bit Tar, Bid Ta – all valid ways to pronounce his name in English.
Luang Phor Klai – also a good luck and protection monk.
Lersi – an ascetic that gave away his possessions and followed Buddha.
Chu Chok – also an ascetic that gave away possessions to follow Buddha.
Nawagote – 9 headed millionaire… there were 9 people that were very rich and they gave away their possessions to follow Buddha.
Tigers – from Wat Tum Sua, Tiger Cave Temple.
Miscellaneous Symbols – Takrud, Hornet, Saliga love birds, etc.
Don’t forget, we have genuine blessed Buddhist bracelets from the temples as well as necklaces and yant cloths (yan flags).
If you are looking for a Buddha or other Buddhist figure to give as a gift to someone you know – shop with us first, we have authentic items and we give 10% back to the temple!
We went on a quick day-trip to one of our favorite temples and found a couple hundred Thai amulets to buy (as usual!) We will be posting them at ThaiAmuletSales.com main amulet store over the next few days. This will be a big update because we also have other recent amulets we haven’t put up yet either – so – over 100 different amulet types and styles will be featured on the new pages.
We have been having a lot of trouble finding the same amulets over and over to sell to buyers. The problem is that the temple doesn’t make the same ones repeatedly. Not more than a few times usually. That means we have them, we make pages for them on the site – and then the amulets are no longer available.
In this case we ask you to be flexible and order some other amulet, necklace, blessed bracelet, yant cloth, shirt, or other item. We’ll send you an email when this happens and you always have the option to request a refund of your order.
If there is any particular amulet you want, you can always try to email us and request it. We are limited in what we get to the particular amulets we find at the temples near us – but, there are quite a few unique amulets we don’t buy, but that are popular with Thais. Again, if we cannot buy many of them at the same time – we usually don’t buy them.
Recently we have seen some other major amulet websites start selling amulets similar to ours. We know they are not genuine because the price is about 1/4 what we charge. We buy the amulets direct from the temple – and we mark them up gently – and fairly. If you see amulets cheaper than ours – but similar in appearance, there is no question that the amulets must not be genuine from a temple. Or, the seller is selling at a loss, and you wouldn’t see many amulets like that – only one by a seller at a time. Almost always the amulets are from jewelers and amulet warehouses – in which they have thousands made and can sell them for about $1. These are not Buddhist amulets in any sense of the word, nor are they blessed. You can typically find these junk amulets on Ebay, Ebay stores, and other websites for around $8-15 for most of them. We well the same items for $25 to 40 usually – and if we marked it down any more – we wouldn’t make a profit from the amulets.
The quality of amulets you get from us versus those found on Ebay is quite different. As I said, the amulets we’ve seen on Ebay are $1-2 USD. The amulets we buy from the temple are $10 – 25 usually, but they also have a selection of expensive amulets over $30 that we usually don’t buy. On occasion, we buy them – and we have those priced at over $50 at ThaiAmuletSales.com and AllBuddhas.com.
For the future we are considering focusing the site on high quality amulets having a solid metal. For instance, solid silver amulets, solid brass, solid bronze, solid copper. We also love jade – and will be purchasing more solid jade amulets – both white jade and green and black jade, in the not too distant future.
If you are considering buying an amulet from Thailand – we hope you choose to buy one that will last forever, and one that you can pass on to your children when you pass on. This is the Thai way, we have a number of amulets from relatives that have passed on and left them to us.
In general, you will pay $90 to 140 for amulets that will last forever. The solid silver amulets we have, solid brass, bronze, copper, and stainless steel – will last forever. We hope you see the value in purchasing amulets of this caliber. If you want to order more than one at this price range – let us know and we will see what discount we can give you.
I found a new Ajarn Jumnien 1st edition Good Luck Amulet at the temple – and I could not be happier – talk about lucky!
I was looking around the temple at some of the amulet stands I don’t usually go to. There were a number of new counters that opened up recently, and I figured they were for donations and to get the blessed bracelets put on by the magee (Buddhist nuns) that reside at the temple.
I puchased a couple of bells at one location, and then saw a counter that was out of the way, and I thought just for donations.
There was a display of amulets and other things. I went over to look and they had some unique and really lovely Buddhist jewelry and Buddha amulets, Nawagote amulets, Shiva amulets, Ganesha amulets… all sorts of things – and none of these amulets or necklaces was ever seen at the temple before. It was great!
Usually the good things – the ones that mean something, are under some of the other amulets and you have to really strain to find them. This was the case yesterday as I looked under the first layer of amulets at the next shelf that was hidden by all that was on top of the first shelf.
There, staring up at me was a tri-color Ajarn Jumnien, 1st Edition Blessed Good Luck amulet that I haven’t seen at the temple for nearly two years now because they sold everything they had in that series already!
I asked the magee to show it to me and she looked at me like – “Do you know what this is?”
If I could rewind life a couple years, I’d be right back there at the temple and buying every single one of the Ajarn Jumnien Good Luck amulets in this series – they were amazing. There were great stories told at the temple by monks, magee, and those that bought the amulets.
I was stunned when she told me the price of the amulet – and when you buy sacred amulets at the Buddhist temples – you shouldn’t argue about price. The amulet is worth everything they say it is. This isn’t a market in Bangkok, it’s the Buddhist temple… nobody is trying to take advantage of you or give you less than what you’re paying.
I wanted the amulet really bad, and didn’t have enough cash for it. I gave her 1,000 THB and asked her to hold it for me until I returned from the ATM machine with the rest of the money.
She did – and when I returned, I bought the best amulet I’ve had in years. This is a one of a kind – there are none left – literally. The Aj. Jumnien Good Luck collection sold out very fast. It was created for Ajarn Jumnien’s 70th birthday year – and there were about 500 made in various designs – primarily 2. In each amulet run there are made the affordable amulets – and those amulets that are beyond almost all Thai people’s reach – and are hundreds of dollars USD.
This is the last amulet of this quality at the temple!
The magee kept telling me over and over – with very solemn face – number 1 power… this one, number one power… in Thai, of course, she spoke no English.
This amulet is brilliant 18K gold with copper and silver for the other colors. The tri-color amulets are paying respect to the Buddhist trinity – that of Dhamma, Buddha, and Sangha.
It has been wrapped in protective clear plastic – as Thais often do with their best amulets, to preserve everything about it – as if brand new.
I love finding hidden treasures at the temples – and this has been the most amazing find, and totally unexpected. I have looked over and over – dozens of times for some more of these style amulets. I have never seen the first editions of this style – except the first day they had the ceremony to bless them on the full moon day – at the auspicious hour. Maybe my karma has come around and is giving me a great find!??
I’ll take some photos and put this on it’s own page at ThaiAmuletSales.com – under the Specials. It is special, not for the price – which will be fair, but not discounted – but for the rarity of this lovely tricolor Buddhist monk amulet.
This is a short note to tell you something about the way the Buddhist amulet business works in Thailand. I don’t know it all – and will readily tell you that, however, there are things I’ve learned through the years about Thai amulets that will help you choose the right amulet for yourself or for a gift.
Thai amulets are basically one of two kinds:
1. Made in Bangkok by jewelers to sell for as much money as possible.
2. Made in rural temples, or in Bangkok by authorized Buddhist temple monks or laypersons, that are sold only by the temple and blessed by the temple abbot.
We sell only amulets in the #2 category.
Thai amulets are a gigantic, thriving business in Thailand. There are amulets for every sort of ailment, luck, bad luck, and of every color and design, every material you could think of. Selling amulets in Thailand is a massive and sometimes dark industry where replicas are sold as originals for many thousands of Thai Baht to unsuspecting buyers.
We never wanted to become a part of that side of the business. What we wanted to do, and what we have done – is create a place where people like you can buy authentic temple created or temple commissioned amulets that are blessed by the Buddhist abbot, and are genuine and as pure authentic as you can find.
If you buy online you don’t often know what you’re getting.
If a website is selling old amulets – that might be a clue that they either – don’t know what they are doing, and so are trying to sell something just to make a quick dollar. Or, they might be genuine, authentic old amulet sellers that have great amulets to sell.
How would you know?
I wouldn’t know, and I’ve been here for years now. I would say that the only way you are going to really “know” the amulets are genuine is to deal with the people. Are they living in Bangkok? Or, living outside Bangkok? I have found that the vast majority of online Thai amulet site owners live in Bangkok and are more interested in the dollars they can make with Buddhist amulets. They are not concerned with who blessed the amulets and will make things up to tell buyers to get them to buy. The name of the game in Bangkok is to SELL AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. Quality? Doesn’t matter.
If you are buying amulets – be careful. There are many Thai and western Thai amulet sellers alike that aren’t concerned about what they are selling. We here, are concerned and we only sell amulets from two temples here in Southern Thailand.
If you are interested in seeing amulets we have for sale, go to our main site (www.ThaiAmuletSales.com) and browse Thai amulets for sale. :)
We are in the process of updating Thai Amulet Sales to include many new amulets that we have, but haven’t yet listed. We just added some new amulets at these pages:
Currently there are over 250 Thai amulets on-site and we have another hundred to publish in the next few weeks.
We are running a special right now – buy 1 get 1 free. The free amulets depend on the total of your order. We’re being quite generous and nobody has been disappointed. If you want to order any amulets – order them before the special runs out. We’re not sure how long we’ll let it run.
The other day at the temple we decided to buy a lot of new gold and silver Buddhist (Buddha, Kwan Yin, Ganesh, Luang Phor Tuad, Luang Phor Klai, Bit Tar) amulets before we move to a new part of Thailand. We cleaned house! The nuns there that sell the amulets were so happy to sell so many at a time… They know we give 10% of what we make back to the temple so they were especially excited.
We bought a number of Thai amulets we haven’t offered before and we’re hoping they’ll sell. We put prices at fair numbers so we can make a happy-happy-happy between you, the temple, and ourselves. So far so good – we’ve sold Thai Buddist amulets to 24 countries so far!
We’ll take photos of the new Buddha amulets in the next few days and get to work building out the site to accomodate about 14 new types of amulets including some totally different designs.
Stay tuned… if you have any questions about amulets we can get for you – just ask.
