Itty-bitty toys that all look freshly hatched from a gumball machine: carousels, fairytale carriages, tea sets, beer bottles, turntables, herds of deer, the catalog is totally all over the map and the thematic array ensures that there truly is something for everyone. The jewelry section is a vintage goldmine featuring kitty hair barrettes, plastic flower rings, and Ten Commandments charm bracelets, and the rest of the catalog is well-stocked with crafting goodies and retro playthings.

Dark decor and other Octoberesque delights that draw upon the gently eerie imagery of the 20’s and 30’s. It’s mostly party goods, but oh, what party goods: black cat garlands, dancing witch lanterns, fortunetelling cards drawn with a touch of art nouveau, glittery skull buckets, mini tote bags for the retro-stylish hauling of sugary loot. And what to wear to these parties? Their glass-framed art pendants, batty charm bracelets, and spider cocktail rings, of course.

Esoteric enchantments from New Jersey! This assemblage artist’s vision blends the earthy and spiritual with a rock’n'roll vibe: shrines take the form of flowery tiki huts, rustic witch dolls are behatted with tattoo print, the art cards are little collages of found Victoriana and ransom-note intensity, the jewelry clusters shiny bric-a-brac around glass and clay Third Eyes, the sock monkeys are voodoo dolls, and if that’s not enough, you can pick up a fez stitched up from shabby chic upholstery.

“Make every day a living nightmare.” A fun catalog of zombie attack lampshades, hockey mask throw pillows, razorblade candles, saw blade clocks, petri dish Christmas ornaments, and decorative jars filled with syringes. Also the home of the “rough night” collection, where shower curtains, sheet sets, and bath mats all coordinate through a matching pattern of bloody splatters and handprints.

Pinup dresses featuring tumbling dice, sugar skulls, and old-school tattoo flash, with a nod to the cards of Alice in Wonderland. The rest of the catalog is a little of this, a little of that, in tops, skirts, hair flowers, and bags, and guardians of small dogs will find a section of shirts made to coordinate to the vampage for a picture-perfect walk in the park.

Dread care and decor. They stock all the waxes, shampoos, conditioners, and tighteners needed for healthy maintenance, plus dyes and bleach, and special combs and anti-frizz tools to keep everything neat. Tams, wraps, wooden hairpins, and beads with little googly eyes make up the adornment section, and they’ve got some unusual specialty products to cut down on all the little frustrations that can come with knotting up your hair: microfibre towels to halve drying time, showercaps and sock hats for keeping all the locks out of the way while bathing or sleeping, rubber bands that won’t quickly snap to death. Also body polish, club toys, ear stretching kits, and a little hemp clothing.
