Isidore Tarot Update

The Isidore Tarot Sea and Sand Spring Edition sale is officially over. The deck will be available again next spring. Thank you all so very much for making it a wonderful success as an alternative edition of the deck. And special thanks to everyone who has been using it for their readings and posting it to Instagram!! That has been really cool to see.

Right now the regular version of the deck is on sale until mid September. Decks for that sale should be arriving in a week or so, along with the books. When those arrive I’ll begin shipping decks for that sale. The next special sale will be brief and it will be for the autumn version of the deck that I have offered the last three autumns. This version of the deck is the same deck coloring with an alternative card back and special packaging with special extras. It’s only available in the full packaging and comes with all the bells and whistles. This year’s deck will have a few Easter eggs (or tricks and treats if you will) that I wonder who will spot. :) That will go up mid September.

This year’s autumn edition sale proceeds will be going towards helping get some repairs for my aunt’s home, the place where my Attic Shoppe was born. She has managed to get some help from the city as a senior citizen. This came in the form of grants to help cover some things and leave her with a much smaller co-pay. So we have some new windows, which are important in a Michigan winter with drafty old ones and heating prices that are getting ridiculous. It’s a start. She’s done a lot for me and it makes me feel good knowing these decks will not only be going to new homes but helping her out.

Pumpkin Spice Time

Happy Labor Day! Are you in a pumpkin spice coma yet? The Attic Shoppe’s big sale for the Halloween months is going to be our Madam Lydia Wilhelmina’s Tarot of Monsters, the Macabre and Autumn Scenes deck. The first edition of the deck was simply know as The Attic Shoppe Halloween Tarot and it featured only the major arcana. At the time it was a bit rushed to try and release it in time for Halloween. That edition was retired many moons ago. I’ve been adding the minors to the deck, tweaking some of the original cards, and doing a little more research on packaging options. I’ve been previewing new cards on Attic Cartomancy over the past month. Right now I’m putting together the pre-ordering options for the deck with hopes to have it up and running tomorrow the 4th. That might be a little wishful thinking given how large the sale is, but since a bug has me indoors hovering over tea and chicken soup and not outside at a picnic, hopefully I have the time to get it done. More to come.
