When you love horror as much as we do you want it to permeate every part of your life, at home, at work, on the walls, on your clothes, everywhere!
That is where our regular feature Little Shops of Horror comes in handy as we run through some seriously spooktastic stores and wicked websites ready to sell you truly terrifyingly awesome horror products.
Specialising in hand made merchandise Pumpkins Treats is a relativly new Etsy store with some fantastic goods on offer. A whole range of hand painted wood slice’s await finished with a varnish and double sided and featuring a selection of horror favourites.
Equally exquisitely hand made is the selection of Frame Boxes including a basement scene from Nightmare on Elm Street. You can see Freddy Kruegers glove holding the pipe on top of the furnace and the frame lights up and looks great at night.
Another box frame is featured around the film Saw. It includes bloody cloth, a piece of flesh in the shape of a jigsaw piece, dirty syringe and a key. If you’re a fan of the film, you will recognise these pieces aas well as the ones on the Beetlejuice box frame which comes with a miniature handbook for the recently deceased and a poster.
Other items on the site include a wooden coffin with red velvet cushioning on the inside which would work great as a ring box or a jewellery box a few fancy horror tote bags and a handmade scene from the film Jaws which is perfect for any shark mad fans.
Below Tina the owner of Pumpkins Treats tells us all about her wonderfully wicked wares:
How did you get into making such magnificent horror merchandise?
I started making Halloween Miniatures many years ago as I could never find what I needed for my spooky dollshouse. And I’m a huge horror fan and wanted to share my love for horror. Me and my sisters started Twisted Miniatures and have sold all over the world and featured in many magazines. I started Pumpkin Treats as my own business as I wanted to make bigger horror pieces, so I aim to make all sorts.
What is your bestselling product?
My best selling product has to be brains in jar key chains.
What inspires your creepy creations?
I get inspiration from everywhere. I get really inspired especially around August as Halloween is approaching. I watch horror films all the time, so generally probably from films and horror cons.
What is your favourite horror film and why?
It’s hard to pick a favourite horror but I love 80’s horror and grew up with nightmare on elm street, so that would have to be my favourite. My dream was to meet Robert England and in 2018 I met him and gave him a miniature replica of his glove.
What scares you the most?
My biggest fear has to be spiders, they are creepy things.
If you had to make a present for a famous horror movie character who would it be and what would you give them?
Apart from Robert Englund I would love to meet John Jarratt from Wolf Creek. His character is so scary because he could be real and that laugh is just creepy. I would like to make him a figure of his character from a scene from Wolf Creek or something he could use.
My aim is to let Pumpkins Treats grow with new products every week. I have a picture of Ricky Dean Logan with a piece of my work, a picture of what I gave to Robert Englund and a picture of Tobin Bell with a present I made for him.
