Say the words Halloween pop-up shop, and I am there. Last week a coworker slipped me a card for a local antique shop that was going to be home to a Halloween pop-up shop. “House of the Spirits” it was called. Sounded like my kind of Thursday night hang, so I called up a couple friends and off we went. It was the perfect way to kick off October.
While you can’t score any of this Halloween goodness for yourself (unless you happen to live in Houston – in which case, shop details are at the end of the post) I did want to share some photos of the super creative and fun Halloweenies I spotted all around the shop when I attended opening night.
Look at that awesome use of spooky fabric!
These baby doll heads and parts were everywhere! Used in jars, in terrariums…so creatively creepy.
I’m trying to be good about not buying tons of Halloween stuff this year (my collection is out of control), but I fell in love with these framed bats. It was hard to resist buying one.
Gorgeous mask! This would have been perfect for my 2011 Halloweenie Roast masquerade. There was a killer skirt to match it.
Such cool silhouette artwork!
When I turned around and saw this art, I busted out laughing. So perfectly unexpected.
These were my favorite baby doll pieces.
Absolutely fell in love with this “Murder of Crows” light fixture. It was already sold by the time I saw it, but who wouldn’t love having this in their home for Halloween? (Or maybe even all year long.)
Rusted cage + stuffed raven = insta-Halloweenies. Loved this too.
If you happen to live in Houston, you can check out House of the Spirits in the Heights.
