Eclectic, quirky, and sometimes edgy…this is how things look from my front porch.

Spooky Vintage Halloween

I love visiting Richmond, Virginia's Carytown neighborhood, a mile-long eclectic mix of interesting shops and restaurants.  There's a wonderful vintage clothing shop called Bygones, which always has spectacular seasonal displays in their big front window.

This year's Halloween display shows a woman knitting with a man in tails holding her knitting "yarn" (actually sparkling beading).   At first I didn't really notice all the spooky elements, only the spider web she was knitting behind her.  And then I realized that she had six legs!  I'd love to meet the person who arranges these displays.

The inside is just as clever with all sorts of vintage clothing going back all the way to the 1800's.
