I snapped some photos of our shared booth space at 13th Street Morgue/Dungeon of Doom last Friday. Stephanie and I had a lot of fun talking to people after they came (running and screaming) out of the haunted house!

Stephanie’s awesome table!
Head out to the 13th Street/Dungeon grounds for a good scare for Halloween!

You may remember the custom orders we did for our friend, Tiinia, and her Friday the 13th wedding at a Dallas haunted house’s grounds (which was all featured on Offbeat Bride – how cool is that?)
We’ve become friends with Tiinia and her husband Kevin, who play delightfully creepy characters at 13th Street, and Alex, the owner/operator of the haunt grounds, and we’re constantly in awe of their talents!
Several weeks ago, our friend Stephanie from Studio Longoria sent me a message with a great idea. Since we (JuJu Eyeball) and another of our Etsy teammates, Amy of Larkspur Studio and Frankensister all sell Halloween appropriate items, why shouldn’t we contact some local haunted houses to see if we could set up shop on the grounds?
I instantly thought of Alex and his awesome haunts, 13th Street Morgue and Dungeon of Doom (which neighbor Reindeer Manor.)
So, I got in touch with him, and we’ll be setting up booths this Friday, 10/18, and next Friday, 10/25; we’re so excited! It’s definitely a unique job. It’s not an arts and crafts “show” or convention, and we won’t be working typical show hours, which are usually morning to mid afternoon, or afternoon to evening. Nope, we’ll be set up in time for the houses to open at 8, and we’ll close the place down around 12:30 a.m. So, if you’re in the DFW area, and you’re looking for some fantastic Halloween fun (maybe after a Friday night football game?) come out and see us!
Just wanted to share some pictures of our first show of the season, and our first show representing our newest shop, JuJu Eyeball!
The day was slow (we guessed that about 20 customers passed by our booth,) due to little advertising, a festival down the street blocking traffic, and an electrical outage issue on the block. We did make some new vendor friends, and made a couple of great contacts with customers! Mom sold a couple of her sand castings and that was it, but the booth fee was very inexpensive. We ended up spending a little money on ourselves and for Christmas presents, and my husband (while running home to get the purse I forgot, and the wallet he didn’t realize he left at home until he was on his way back) brought one of our good friends back with him, so we ended up having a great time.

This month, we participated in Etsy 817’s first show – Handmade Holidays! As members and vendors, we were excited to see how it all turned out. Other than some issues with signage and the university, including employees forgetting to lock the downstairs entrance to the upstairs jogging track above our gym (helloooo, random joggers above our heads,) it was a great show!
I have to say, I was impressed by the variety and quality of the vendors’ items. We’ve been to lots of shows, and jewelry and baby items can sometimes dominate the scene. (Nothing wrong with that, but it doesn’t give you many choices!)
We had a bit of a snafu with our setup, but that was quickly remedied by nice neighbors and the show organizers. Here’s how it looked:

Luckily, we had my hubby with us to help setup, and got to browse the show and do some Christmas shopping! I bought some yummy smelling soaps from Clover Hollow, Iron Man coasters for the bro in law from Make It Sick, a bookmark for the MIL from Book-Inz (our neighbors!) and some local photog prints.
Hoping all of you had a merry Christmas!
