Halloween seems like a good time to debut the second edition of our Tea Bats Lenormand deck. You can pop over to the Attic Cartomancy blog to see all of the updated cards. The cards are bigger, a little brighter, I’ve added some extra detailing as well as a small pop of color through tinting. Thankfully most of the cards were already done before my stair diving incident. Right now I’m working out packaging and potential sale times. :)
Shipping for our Isidore sale has begun. I’ve gotten about a third of all the orders packaged already. These will go into the post on Monday. I have only one hiccup and that is my deck tins were slightly delayed due to some weather related issues where my packaging provider is, but they put a rush on the delivery so hopefully they should be here by Thursday. I have tins on hand, but I know I will run out before I’ve gotten everyone covered. It will honestly probably take me about a week to get all of these orders put together and into the post. If you’re curious about your delivery time please feel free to shoot me a message and I can tell you where you are in the shipping order so you don’t have to wonder. Thank you all again for your orders and now I need to get back to all that packaging. :)
The Isidore Tarot second edition sale is now over. Thank you for your orders! The decks are printing and should arrive mid-to-end of the week. The companion books should be here first of the week. We’ll spend the pre-Halloween weekend getting orders packaged up and ready for shipping. All decks go into the post in the order in which they were received. This was the first time we took international orders in a sale. For our new over seas customers please note that shipping times will vary for you depending on your destination.
We’ve had requests for extending the sale for a week longer. Unfortunately we couldn’t do that at this time. We took in a lot of orders and we don’t want our shoppe-keep getting too overwhelmed at the moment. However, given the number of requests and this being the last chance to pick up the second edition of the deck online, we may do a pre-Christmas sale in November for a few of our decks (including the Isidore Tarot) for those who want to pick them up as gifts. We will have the Isidore doll-size decks available during this sale.
More to come. Now it’s time to go plant ourselves in front of the television and take in a new season of The Walking Dead!
“When black cats prowl and pumpkins gleam; may luck be yours on Halloween!” is one of our favorite Halloween quotes. So it seemed fitting to take our own black cat (The Dapper Cat) and pair him with pumpkins and autumn colors and patterns. So we are please to offer our first Halloween tee! This item is available through our Red Bubble shoppe at this link.
I have returned from Boston to find the Ohio heatwave has passed and the trees are starting to turn. That was a very nice welcome back. With the exception of underestimating just how exhausted the whole con was going to be, our trip was wonderful. I was able to spend some time with my dad, visit with a few friends, and there was of course the convention. Aside from all of the marketing panels, we were able to sit in on a conversation with former first lady Michelle Obama, Insecure star Issa Rae, and wrestler/actor Jon Sena. That was extremely cool.
So, now I’m home and getting back into my daily routine with the shoppe. October is normally our big month, but this year it’s going to be a bit more subdued. Our two major sales will most likely be the highlight of our spooky month. I will be adding some different spooky designs to our tee shirt shoppe. I might have a few spirit boards available here and there as well.
So that is a quicky update for the moment. Now that our contact form is back up I’ve gotten some wonderful messages wishing me well and one super sweet woman by the name of Rose who sends me wonky humor keep your chin up messages every morning. It means a lot. For the record I’m almost healed from all the bumps, bruises, and fix-me-up surgeries. And we made the wise decision to move our bedroom to the first floor because those attic stairs just give me the stick-eye too often. More to come!
HAPPY HALLOWEEN! I hope everyone is out on this spooky evening enjoying it to the fullest. We’re staying in and handing out candy for the very first time in our new home. I’ve been a bit under the weather the past two weeks so we’re doing simple, but I’m still excited. Now for a few shoppe notes: Hey! The Attic Shoppe received a wonderful local review, which gave us a huge boost in traffic! Yay! However, I’ve been cleaned out of on-hand decks. I have a huge order currently printing. In the meantime some of our decks are out of stock till that order arrives. I’m also getting a little holiday season help and we’ll be creating and offering gift boxes for the season. More on that in the week to come. Right now the doorbell is ringing and a little witch is staring down our candy bowl. Enjoy the holiday and be safe!
