Macabre Blog – Talking about Wickedly Decadent items

Welcome to November

by on Nov.01, 2021, under News

October has come and gone, our favorite holiday was a great time for us. We had a few fun days in the store with shoppers trick or treating. We saw some interesting costumes.

The kids were all on sugar highs and our masks were the big hit of the day.

Coming home we had visitors to our haunted yard almost from the moment we arrived. I would have loved to get pictures of some of the really creative ones but since most were very young children, we don’t feel it is responsible for us to take their photos and share them online. Their wonderful costumes and shrieks of joy and fear will live in our memories of the season.

 

We hope you all had a happy and safe Halloween and here’s wishing you a lovely Thanksgiving to come. Talk to you later!

Here are a few pics of us, our neighbor-store denizens, and the centerpiece of our yard.

Welcome to October and the countdown to Halloween

by on Oct.06, 2021, under News

Welcome to October.

It’s been an interesting month here.

We put on a bunch of new vendors for our products. We added actual knives and sword canes found lovely altarpieces of crystal balls and obsidian athames, obtained some lovely hand-made leather bags and there’s still more coming.

Media Minion’s (mumble-mumbleth) birthday arrived this week and we decided to escape civilization for a couple of days and went to the Grand Canyon to camp and sightsee.
Well, that went badly.
We had a lovely first night, had cocktails both alcohol and shrimp under the stars, and had a big campfire to chase back the night, and then
BOOM
Thunder, lightning, and heavy rain moved in right after we went to bed.
We figured, ‘hey it will be better in the morning’.
Not so lucky. The rain kept coming and brought with it hail, fog, and clouds completely filling the canyon so that sightseeing was just not to be.
The photos that look like just a cloudy vista are actually the scene from the rim of the canyon; pretty unimpressive in these conditions.

Soaking wet, muddy, and generally unhappy we drove along the rim road and saw what little we could and then decided to cut our losses.
On the bright side, we took a different route home going through a Navajo reservation. THEY had a canyon that you could actually see and boy was it beautiful.
We would have liked to support the local businesses that set up on the roadside but every booth was empty. It might have been the weather that was still around the area or the fact that tourist season is winding down at the canyon. Our loss, we would have loved some buffalo jerky or a Navajo rug.

Well, think that’s enough for now.

Oh, and in advance: HAPPY HALLOWEEN

Here are some photos from our trip.

Monthly update – September 2021

by on Sep.02, 2021, under News

Hello all you wickedly decadent people. It’s been another month and boy do we have some news for you.

The Macabre Mercantile staff went to the huge ASD trade show at the Las Vegas Convention Center this past month and we saw literally thousands of vendors20210824_121329, merchandisers, and manufacturers who carry everything from socks to bitcoin machines – it is pretty amazing to see the amount of items on display at this event. It took us two days of walking to traverse the entire convention center. Our coffins never looked so inviting.

Anywho, we touched base with several of our favorite suppliers and have orders for new statuary, skulls and Ouija products. All kinds of new and interesting designs – we can’t wait to show you the Cthulhu themed statuary we found.

We expect the items to begin flowing into our crypt in the next few weeks and will share images of them with you as they arrive.

Our own Media Minion has a new carved piece of art that’s about to land in the store. It’s a cute linocarving that’s framed and shows an alien abduction in a mountain setting.   Check it out here 

Here’s some of the things we’ve got coming: new bags, 3D artwork, carved wooden trinket boxes. knives, a cross hilt sword, sword canes, crystal balls, obsidian jewelry, soapstone idols,  and so much more.

Stay tuned for pictures on our Instagram and new items on the shopping website

With the Fall season coming upon us (not that we can tell in Las Vegas since we’re still near 100 degrees) we have to think of that most sacred of days – Halloween. We’ll be putting more masks into the store as the big day approaches.

Since Halloween falls on a Sunday that means our store will be open. Click here for directions

We’ll be doing Trick or Treat at Macabre Mercantile once more. Come by with the kids and get candy. If you are in costume (a real costume not a tee shirt that says ‘This is my costume’) we’ll give 10% off your entire purchase on that day. Let’s get spooky together!

Macabre Monthly Update – August 2021

by on Aug.07, 2021, under News, Products

Hello you wickedly decadent people.

We’ve been quite remiss in keeping up our blog and other forms of communication and really – can you blame us? The past year has been a bit insane, but you already knew that.

We wanted to make an effort to at least say hi once every month and let you know what’s going on in the world of Macabre Mercantile.

It’s August which means hot in Las Vegas. Well hot and smokey lately. My gods and demons, we looked out our window this morning and thought it was going to rain but it actually was thick clouds of smoke coming in from California. You couldn’t even see the Vegas Strip until you were right on top of it. It was pretty freaky. Also not the best air quality causing burning eyes and itchy noses. But we, like all the locals, persevered and got the store open for business as usual.

We have a big event coming up during the week of the 23rd, ASD trade show. It’s is one of our bigger trade shows we attend in search of new products, new artists and trendy new goth and macabre items for the store. We hope to score some new products to liven up the shop even more. This show is the same place we found our fabulous Skull Throne which sits in the corner of our store waiting for the right customer to claim it as their own.

With the intense heat over the last 2 months we haven’t had a chance to do any of our outings but hope to change that as fall gets closer. Media Minion found a bunch of roadside attractions and little ghost towns that we have yet to visit.

Once we manage to do that, we’ll share photos.

We just got new items into the store today – fantastic original enamel pins and cute, spooky socks. Yes socks; even a ghoul wants to keep their feet warm and why not do it in macabre style.

Here’s a taste of just one of the designs we got. We’ll leave you with this image to keep you warm and happy until next time.

Stay wickedly decadent my friends.
