Shopping

Traditions carries both genuine vintage and vintage-style items. I’ve found a couple of things to be a bit overpriced (check out the Halloween Dolls–there’s a witch you can get for $20 at Tuesday Morning), but they carry a ton of stuff I haven’t seen anywhere else. They organize things into artist collections, so you know who did what.  I also kinda love how it’s all on one enormous page. You just keep scrolling…

(note: all the links go to the main page, as there aren’t individual item pages)

Halloween Car Ride, Allen Cunningham, $59.99

Flying Skull Tree Topper, $16.99

Johanna Parker Pumpkin Peep Sitters, $25.99

Halloween Fairy, Debra Schoch, $54.99 (She looks like she can’t even)

Creature Carvings doesn’t have hundreds of items, but what they do have is beautifully done.

Vampire Bat Candle, $12.50

Katya takes her original carvings and turns them into lovely candles, perfectly priced for gifts.  I think the Spousal Unit needs one of these.

Cthulhu Candle, $33.00

While I have several favorites, this one truly makes me smile.  Noooo! Don’t burn my head!

Scared Candle, $11.50

I can never resist a good JoL. Note the holiday-appropriate price.

Black Jack-o-Lantern, $13.00.

I’ve linked My Soul Design from the facebook page, but I thought it was worth a full post here as well.

Black and Gold Bird Pendant, $381.23

Natalia Lubieniecka creates astonishing spiders, beetles, and many other critters at her studio in Vienna, Austria.

Vintage casket with Spider, $317.48

The sculptures are created with vintage fabric, beads, and semi-precious stones.

Black Cicada Brooch, $381.23

Definitely something I’d love to wear. Despite (or maybe because of) the screams.

Black Spider Bracelet, $189.98

Traditions carries vintage-style decorations for all the major holidays, and they do an especially good job with Halloween. Want something a little spooky for your Christmas tree? Traditions has a lovely section of ornaments and tree-toppers. Even trees!  I’m keeping this one bookmarked.

Sassy Cat Tree Topper, $6.99

 

Pumpkins in a Circle Tree Skirt, $39.99

Black Raven Ornament, $23.99

Mysterious Bat Ornament, $18.99

I found this Bone Forest Gifts while I was hunting around for Christmas hints for the Spousal Unit. I refuse to come up with a specific wishlist, but I’m happy to point him to a couple shops. This one is in Russia, so I doubt it could ship in time. Maybe for my birthday?

Marianne says the people in town call her the forest witch. I’m sure they mean it in a good way.

Octopus-man Skull Pendant. $60

Monk Skull Spider Set. $55

Crescent Moon. $45

Got a vampire who needs killing? Zombie? Heading off for a pirate adventure? Phineas J. Legheart has what you need.  Now, this site is almost a Web Wraith, with the facebook page two years out of date, so if you decide to engage the service of Mr. Legheart, be sure you correspond directly, first.

The Bastille, $395

The Professional, $295

The Professor Zombie Killing Kit (sold out)

One of my favorites comes on its own, but also with the Inquisitor kit:

Vampire Skull Trophy Case (pictured here with The Inquisitor set)

 

Dark Balaur makes beautiful laser-cut items for witches, and the witchy, at Pandora Witch Shop.  When I first saw his stuff, I thought it was gorgeous, but I was suspicious, because there is so much art theft out there. So I tracked down the artist, Ksenia Svincova, and made sure it was legit. Indeed, she has been working with the shop for some time, so it’s all on the up-and-up.

Morticia Addams Book of Shadows, $85

Morticia Addams Book of Shadows, $85

Pandora Ouija Board, $50

Zodiac, Cancer, Book of Shadows, $100

Gold Sun Wheel of the Year, $35

Baphomet Spirit Board, $80

 

 

Lori Plummer of The Glass Hive makes things that are exactly to my taste: spooky and elegant. My birthday is October 1, and I love the white coffin box. Just sayin’.

[UPDATE: Nevermind. I couldn’t stop myself from buying the white coffin myself. This is why I’m hard to shop for.]
