The Scarefest X – convention report

by on Oct.06, 2017, under News

It was our third Scarefest and it was scary fun. Scarefest X was a sight to behold. Huge crowds, great celebrities and a new booth location for the Macabre Mercantile crew.
Our booth (all 20×20 of it) was moved front and center. We were the first thing most people saw as they walked down the entry hall after the gates.
We had flashing lights, a new tall banner with strobing colored lights around it and our normal array of macabre and wickedly decadent items.
We rolled out our new steampunk statuary and barware to much joy.
The highlight of MY convention was having Barry Bostwick come into the booth and purchase a Rocky Horror Picture Show wallet – of course I was so star struck that I fumbled the ball and didn’t get a picture but then again, he’s a celeb and taking pictures is part of his bread and butter – I wouldn’t dream of demanding a freebie in our shop.

Well here are a few of the photos we took to give you a taste of the con from our booth.

Scares that Care Weekend 4

by on Jul.30, 2017, under News


The Macabre staff went to our favorite convention. We had a REALLY long booth. We decided to expand again to 5 tables. Unfortunately for us it turned into a long corridor. If we return for another go, I think we’ll shrink to 4 tables and ask for them to be in a cube so we can build a store rather than a strip mall.

The con was a blast. The people were amazing. Costumes were spectacular. If you didn’t make it, here’s a tiny look from our booth location. One fun thing we did, the Crypt Queen hid under one of our tables on Saturday and would occasionally reach out or speak to people – reactions were quite the source of entertainment – up until she tried to scare the masked maniacs who promptly tried to skewer her.  Ah horror fans, always prepared for the strange and unusual. Also once more the Children’s Trick or Treat parade came past. What a great thing for a convention to do for their youngest fans; and it lets us vendors have fun too.

Oh and of course, who could forget the fire alarm in the afternoon when it was just over 100 degrees. Joy.

Enjoy the pics.

Tidewater Comicon Photos

by on May.20, 2017, under News

We had a blast at Tidewater Comicon in Virginia Beach, VA. We met so many people and generally had a great time.

Our booth this year was twice the size of the previous year so we got to showcase a lot more items for the crowd and boy did they love our newest steampunk products – as well as everything else.

We didn’t really get a chance to roam so we mainly took some photos of folks passing by or who visited our booth. We also took the obligatory shots of our setup.

Our next convention is Scares That Care in Williamsburg, VA on July 21-23. We’ll have the biggest booth we’ve ever done at that show so it should be a sight to behold. If we didn’t get to see you in Virginia Beach, I hope we get a chance to see your smiling faces in Williamsburg.

Now  on with the photos (click on a photo to see a high res larger version):

Monster Mania 36

by on Mar.13, 2017, under News

The Macabre Mercantile staff travelled to Cherry Hill New Jersey to attend Monster Mania. It was a great time. We met many cool people and got to introduce the world of the Wickedly Decadent to a lot of new people. While we won’t be able to attend the August show due to other commitments, we fully intend to return in 2018.

We took a few photos between helping customers:
