Location: Witch City Consignment, 302 Essex St, Salem, MA
Highlights: art, memorabilia and other horror related items for sale
The Witch City Consignment shop had two fairs: Freaks, Antiques And Uniques which was held October 13 and 14 and Jerry’s Fright Fairs which were held the last two weekends of the month.
The “boo-tique” specialized in art, dolls and masks among other types of horror related products. There were two levels of vendors with dozens of artists at the shop.
Toni Gangi’s The Monkey Biz specializes in art with a twist.
Move over American Girl, Kat sells cute little dolls at Kats Creepy Creations.
There was lots of art by a variety of artists at the fair.
Oneail FX sells masks and effects for all of your Halloween needs.
The Witch City Consignment store also sold their own wares. Everything from figurines and old magazines to holiday decorations (with a heavy emphasis on Halloween decorations of course).
The shop featured not only horror themed products. There were also artifacts of a bygone era.
Sometimes you come across items that peak your interest, even if you wouldn’t want to buy them for your own use. I always find things like these old photos to be so interesting. I wonder where are these people now? What were they really like and what is their story?
I had to take a close up of this Halloween decoration since my we had the very same decoration while I was growing up. I wonder if it’s the same one. It’s wonderful to think of how one random decoration can make you flush with nostalgia.
Of course, during my visit to the fair there were lots of people and dogs in costume for Halloween.
Dogs were dressed up for the holiday as well!
Sawyer, Super dog on the left, is an 11 year old Beagle. Jack, dressed as Batman on the right, is a 10 year old Cavalier.
The appropriately named Lucifer is a 10 month old Siberian Husky.
Astra is a 8 month old Samoyed.
I met Faith, an 8 year old, Pitt Bull and American Bulldog mixed breed dog.
