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.

Scares That Care Weekend Convention 2016

by on Aug.12, 2016, under News

Macabre Mercantile attended its 3rd Scares That Care convention to help those in need and have a great time with horror fans of all types.

Here’s a few pics of some of the things we saw. Most of our photos are from the Dealer Room but we actually got to the Costume competition this year as well. Some amazing costumes by very talented people.

We actually got to witness Joe Ripple award a check to one of the chosen recipients at the competition. It was very moving and reminded us all why we were there.

Check out Scares That to find out about all the good work these folks do and maybe try to come to the show next year.

Now on to our photos. Next stop will be Scarefest in Lexington KY.

Scares That Care weekend 2

by on Jul.28, 2015, under News

The Macabre minions attended the Scares That Care weekend convention 2 recently in Williamsburg, VA. This is a great horror convention which brings together those who love the genre in order to collect money to help those less fortunate. So many people assume that fans are flakey or that those who love the horror genre have no compassion because they like seeing blood and gore – NOT SO. This convention proves it hands down that both the fans and those on the creation side of the genre are all loving giving people who will happily give their all to help others.

We increased our product line for this year adding more purses and jewelry. We also went for a larger space so we could create a walk in store feel for our customers. It proved to be a great idea. Folks were able to come in, touch and feel the merchandise and interact with us better than only across the table.

The convention itself was a blast. So many nice people to meet. Celebrities wandering the halls and the vendor room, what more could you ask?

Our Crypt Queen (who happens to be our in house jeweler) made  a handful of original necklaces. One was given to the convention for the silent auction to help raise money for the charity. The rest: 2 white chokers, a blue necklace and a black sparkly necklace with an enormous stone skull, were for sale at the table.

We met fun cosplayers, a merman and even a headless statue wandering the halls. C’mon, you know it sounds fun, check it out next year at Scares That Care Weekend 3

We can hardly wait to do it again next year.
