Update on new things coming in at the shop…

Posted in business-a-go-go, Fun Stuff, Main at 6:03 pm by carrie

As our open house approaches, it has come to my attention that many of our little shipments have been missing in action! To top it off, I ordered some of these goodies in January and I cannot, for the life of me, remember what I ordered. So when asked what is coming in, I have to shrug my shoulders and scratch my head. All my halloween merchandise… one big blur at this point! :)

For starters, our Halloween Open House Postcard was sent out and you should be receiving yours today! If you would like to be added to the mailing list, please send your address to jointheparty@violetsareblue.net and we’ll be sure to add you! We send out 4 or 5 postcards a year with event announcements and coupons.

And these items are coming in, I’ve been told… the next “5-10 business days” (argh):

We are getting…


These little trick-or-treat kids…


These super cute little witches sitting on pumpkins…

I’m working on some art boards with vintage art and glitter on them. They are taking a little longer than I thought to get them done so I should have them at the shop and online by the middle of next week :) They will be made of wood and hanging from ribbon. Time permitting, I’ll do some fancy paper pinwheels or something cool on them, too :)
One of our bigger shipments is from Ganz. We’ve been buying from Ganz for a while and they always have a huge variety of fun things! I’m getting trick-or-treat witch bags, ceramic bowls, fun little grab gifts, a few doggie costumes and the big seller from last year… sticky eyeballs for the kids (they are super gross… I think that’s why we sold them out so fast!) I wish I had a better picture of what they offer but alas, I don’t have a catalog in front of me.
Ganz also has a lot of fun fall and Thanksgiving items. Ranging from plush turkeys that audibly “gobble” to beautiful serving bowls. I can’t wait until it gets here! I’ll be sure to post as many pics as I can and get them on the website so you can use that coupon ;) (If you didn’t get a postcard, or can’t read the one above, let me know… I’ll make sure you get the coupon code).

So, please check back often! I’ll try to keep everyone updated on all the new shipments coming in! Also, I’ve been listing new things on the website every single day :) My goal is to have at least 50% of what we have in the store online, if not more!

Have a great night everyone! :)

    Oh how I wish I lived close by where your shop is. I love, love, love the picture with the beautiful wallpaper, and the fireplace. I have looked everywhere I can in my area for wallpaper like that and cannot find it. You have some very beautiful things.

    Have a great day!
