Spooky Wooky Window

Hannah Zakari shop window

Yesterday I took a train over to Edinburgh to install my spooky cute window display at Hannah Zakari. Rachael has been selling my stuff online for ages and now has a pretty little shop off the Grassmarket full of lovely things by indie designers.

You’ve already seen my trapped ghost and I also made some cute felt ghosts plus I brought a load of jars to display spooky products from the shop. It was great fun wandering around the shop selecting products to use – I like how it isn’t overtly Halloween themed but just a bit spooky and dark with black cats, skeletons, ravens and trees.

Anyway, there are more photos on Flickr and the window should be up for the next couple of weeks so do go and have a peek! It was really fun watching people spot the ghosts and cross the street to have a better look :)

Claire was also in the shop making cross-stitch badges on demand so I got her to make me some BOO! badges for the window and also a ghost for me – isn’t he cute! You should be able to buy more of these from her soon.

Psst! The Hannah Zakari web shop is 6 years old and there’s a special birthday discount ending today!
