Macabre Mercantile vs Bonnie Springs

by on Nov.26, 2018, under News

To celebrate the birthday of one of our founders, the Macabre Mercantile staff went to visit the Old Town at Bonnie Springs Ranch out in Red Rock Canyon.

The surroundings are beautiful. The rebuilt replica of an old mining town was better than some we’ve seen but was also kind of disappointing. There was a REALLY BAD melodrama at the Opera House that we managed to survive about 10 minutes of before leaving. One actor was really good, knew how to project etc but the other guy was just a mumbler. We’ve become too jaded having spent many weekends at the Maryland Rennaisance Faire watching quality plays (even ones done badly on purpose).

We missed the hanging because we needed to visit their petting zoo. Sorry we didn’t get photos of the zoo. The animals were so cool we got caught up in that and forgot the camera. We petted and  fed a donkey who brayed just as we arrived – dang thing was like a fog horn, didn’t realize they were so loud. We saw these beautiful wolves. It was a joy to see such beautiful creatures but was also very sad to see them stuck in a cage.

We only took a few photos of the small train you ride up to the town and the terrain that surrounds the ranch. We were VERY disappointed that the wax museum was locked up – what did we spend $10 each for if we couldn’t get into the wax museum to see the statues and ghosts?  Did I mention ghosts? Yeah the ranch is supposedly haunted hence our visit. We didn’t see anything creepy – except maybe a few of the other visitors.

Someday we’ll find a cool ghost town rather than a cheesy tourist trap.

Halloween 2018

by on Oct.28, 2018, under News

Happy Halloween my ghoulish friends. That’s right the holiday is finally upon us and the staff at Macabre Mercantile have decorated their abode for the season.
A lot of their decor was purged in the great moving sale in VA but they kept the best items and have put them out.

This will probably be their only chance to do trick or treat before opening the store so they are really excited to have all the little monsters in the neighborhood stop by on Halloween night. Next year Halloween will be a major event at our Vegas storefront.

Oh BTW our favorite author Edmund de Wight is giving away a free book as part of All Hallows Read. Go to his Facebook page and comment on the pinned post to get one of 10 free copies.

Macabre Mercantile vs Wildlife

by on Oct.10, 2018, under News

The Macabre Mercantile staff decided on an excursion that was not so spooky. We traveled to the northern side of Vegas to beautiful Floyd Lamb park at Tule Springs.

This is a historic 2,040-acre (830 ha) park in Las Vegas, Nevada. The park is centered on Tule Springs, a series of small lakes that formed an oasis in this part of the Mojave Desert. One of the larger urban retreats in the Las Vegas Valley, Tule Springs was once considered to be far out of town but is now encroached by development. The park includes the Tule Springs Ranch, Tule Springs Archaeological Site, Tule Springs Wash and four ponds available for fishing. (from Wikipedia)

We love going there just to enjoy nature and look at the cool animals. There are peacocks galore, geese, ducks, rabbits and this time we even spotted a road runner.
We took a couple pictures of peacocks and rabbits but the road runner was WAY too fast for a good picture and the geese were busy chasing each other to get to the ranger with the food so no pics there.
We also visited the historic adobe house which used to serve as a way point back in the old days.

Order fulfillment on hold until Oct 21

by on Oct.08, 2018, under News

Hi all.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad tidings, what with Halloween just around the corner, but our staff has had an emergency come up out of town and will be travelling.

We won’t have access to our products to fulfill orders until we return – we should be back no later than October 20.

The store is still up and running but if you place an order, please realize we will not be able to fulfill it and ship until October 21.

Thank you for your understanding and patience while we sort out this minor mess.  We’ll still be accessing Facebook, Twitter and our email ( service@macabremercantile.com ) if you have a question for us or just want to say hi. We’ll keep you updated on our progress.
