Could any of you kindly let me know whether there are any "pagan supplies" (for lack of a better term) shops in Rugby, and if so where may I find them? I imagine there will be some and I've tried google but to no avail. I hope this is the right forum area for this questions.

I am not aware of anything in Rugby but then I have just moved back to the area and am not necessarily best placed to advise you.
We had one many years ago, called Eye Of Horus, that keeps getting an honourable mention at the moot. Then I started using a stall on Coventry Indoor Market, while I was at Uni there - this has also closed down. I am aware of a shop in Stratford On Avon, as I visit the town from time to time, but I am unable to recommend this one favourably. Having lived in Birmingham recently my favoured place there was Zen in Moseley (not the one in Birmingham itself) though this isn't much use on the Rugby forum.
About 5 years ago there was one in Lutterworth (where you said you're from when in this country). Can't remember the name of it, It was run by a lady who did massage and Reiki and that kind of thing, I believe she still does this but the shop has fallen by the wayside.
I mostly get stuff from other sources as I mostly only ever need herbs and candles, most of which I can obtain from other sources. Anything I do need a Pagan shop for I tend to get online, unless I just happen upon a Pagan shop.

I believe there is a shop in Nuneaton, I have never been in but I do remember walking past and seeing pentacles, tarot cards etc in the window. It is in the town centre somewhere. Erm and there is three or four in Stratford, again didn't go into any of them but they were there last November! And sorry Tim.. no idea about green hair dye, I think I saw some blue in Wilko's, or you could try Bodycare.. does Rugby still have one of those? Anyways hope I was of some help.
Thanks! I haven't seen any such shops in Lutterworth, but will make sure to take a closer look next month...maybe I can find something in Leicester otherwise. There's a couple of things I want to get but I'm a bit wary of just ordering them online as I want to get a "feel" of them first if that makes sense.
Tim - I've never tried temporary hair dye (well, green dye anyway...) but I know a couple of people who swear by "Crazy Color" and "Directions" non-permanent hair dye, I don't know any shops that sell them - but I know some do - but they're fairly easy to find online. Hope that helped!
Thanks everyone, I'll see if I can track down some Crazy Color or Directions. I'm not aiming for a crazy colour so maybe the second one.
The assumption from the responses is that I am going to dye my hair. If you see someone wandering around Rugby with green hair, it's not me before you walk up and say hullo (I don't have any hair at all). But, if you see someone wandering around Rugby with a green beard...
