You might find it hard to believe, but there are people out there who loathe Halloween and wish they could banish it from our calendars.

We saw our Halloween props, accessories and decorations featured in more places than ever this past Halloween! For a close-knit and independent company like ours, we were extremely honored and frankly blown away to see such a huge interest from the public in the unique work we do. It’s also exciting because it further proves to us something we desperately want to believe in our decaying hearts – that Halloween is getting bigger and being celebrated by more haunters than ever!
