If the architecture and history alone didn’t sell me on wanting to go on a trip to London, this shop certainly does! Perfectly named ‘Hoxton Street Monster Supplies‘ is, well as they so cleverly put it, a purveyor of quality goods for monsters of every kind. Located on the beautiful Hoxton Street in London, ‘Monster Supplies’ was established in 1818 and just recently went under a renovation and has now reopened again to the public. The store boasts beautiful wood shelving from wall to wall showcasing a wide array of everything a monster would need. From vintage tins containing ‘Mortal Terror’ to glass jars of ‘Sorrow’ and ‘Anger’, you’re sure to find the perfect gift here for your fellow fiends or, of course, your own inner monster.
At this time unfortunately they only cater to the London area, however you can sometimes find their products for sale on eBay. Hopefully soon they will expand their shipping to the U.S. Would love to give these out as gifts and stock up on them myself.

I’ve read about Roger’s Gardens a lot in the past and how impressive not only is their Halloween merchandise but also their displays. It wasn’t until I saw photos online when I believed all the stories! I’ve yet to visit them as they’re about an hour away, but I think a pumpkin spice latte and a nice autumn drive will be on the agenda this year.

I’ve always been a huge fan of Annie Leibovitz photography. Her Disney portrait series has captivated me even more. Here’s a look at her most recent, featuring Jack Black, Will Ferrel and Jason Segel as The Hitchhiking Ghosts.

Well, although temperatures in California have been extremely high - 100 degrees high, I couldn’t resist from making the first Halloween purchase of the year. Then displaying it in all of its glory. The first of many and hopefully cooler temperatures are on the way!
Recently someone sent me a link to this fantastic book titled “Haunted Air”. A wonderful photographic journey through the history of Halloween between 1875 and 1955. Definitely a must have. View more pictures here and head to Amazon to grab the hardcover edition.
Thanks for sending this my way Skye!
