Plague and Pirates in the Tea House - Bazaar, Forums and Retail!
Wow! It seems like forever since the Hallows '08 line was released. If you haven't yet had a chance to visit, please do!
As you know, September 19th is National (Universal?) Talk Like A Pirate Day. Now, I'm not so swell with the slang, but I do know the way to the bottom of a mug of grog! Really, it's the perfect day to release two new fragrances to Miss Victoria's Atypical Tea House and Marauding Mercantile!
To the Atypical Tea House:
Avast ye! This here tea be Robust and harr-dy! So strong, the plank may indeed walk itself.
Assam and Keemun black tea leaves are steeped in spiced rum and served with fresh cream and more heaps of sugar than you can shake a cutlass at.
To the Marauding Mercantile:
"Ring around the rosy. A pocket full of posies. Ashes, ashes! We all fall down." Doktor Schnabel von Rom has come calling! A pestilence-averting posy compounded with spices and herbs historically used to protect people (and their noses) from the horrendous effects of the Black Plague. Certainly a must for all pirates and marauders traveling to uncharted territories!
Bitter rue and wormwood are strewn on burning bundles of juniper, sage and laurel. Powdered Ceylon cinnamon, nutmeg and clove are then blended in with ambergris to sweeten the air from the scent of death.
PORTLAND HALLOWEEN BAZAAR
If any of you are going to be in Portland, OR on Saturday, September 27th, please feel free to stop by and visit the first annual Portland Halloween Bazaar where Conjure Oils will be vending for the day!
I'm going to bring most of the Hallows '08 limited editions, the new scents from Miss V's and, of course, some spooky selections from the general catalog. I'd love to meet some of you there!
I would love to take a second and thank the good folks at Gorey Details for being the latest retailer of Conjure Oils! If you've not yet visited their pages, you're in for a real ghoulish treat!
For those on the other side of the pond, Baron's Magick is the only UK retailer of CO! A gorgeous site run by lovely people.
FORUM on DailySlather.com
Just a reminder that the Conjure Oils/Good Judy forum is up and running! Please come and join in the fray!
I hope your Autumn season has been dazzling. Keep in touch and I hope to hear from you soon!
