Just like October 31st, Kitty's Boo-tique is a 365 day's a year Halloween store thats just opened and if you haven't checked it out already where have you been?
Speaking with a friend about how hard it was to obtain various Halloween decorations within the UK that are so easily available in the USA, it was a great surprise to stumble across the Boo-tique. Although not open at the time Kitty's Boo-tique was advertising American Halloween products that I was dying to get my hands on and with each passing day the opening day was gradually getting closer. Upon opening an order was placed right away (which you can see images for below) and since then the store has quickly added even more products with many more to come! It's most recent additions include Halloween candy!
I wanted to find out more about Kitty's Boo-tique and fortunately for us she's opened her crypt to tell us more about your new favourite store and what to expect in the future. Check out the interview below;
I have always loved Halloween since I was small (my birthday is only one day out from the big day itself!) and vintage style is something I love also. When looking for great quality Halloween products I found that I had to search through a lot of not-so-great quality pieces, and was always disappointed at the crazy amount of amazing products available in the USA. So instead of throwing a strop, I decided to do something about it. Through a whole lot of searching and communicating with suppliers in the USA, the Boo-tique was born!
What can we expect from Kitty’s Boo-tique over the next couple of months?
Just getting more and more hand-picked pieces in, working with the Halloween online community (some of the nicest people I've ever met), we currently only ship to the UK and Europe to give exclusivity to customers who may have found it difficult/expensive to find and ship the pieces they want and hopefully we can spread Halloween joy even further!
Can you reveal any spooky surprises you have in store for the store that you haven’t revealed yet?
Well, after the big day itself, we'll be looking at more horror-inspired homewares for all-year-round spookiness - we've given a couple of sneaky peeks but I still have a couple tricks up my sleeve.
Thanks! It really exceeded anything I could have imagined, and I can't quite believe it! It just shows that this is something that has been a long time coming, and very much desired by Halloween fans on this side of the pond. At the moment it's just me, with the support of my husband and our chihuahua Peanut, and we want to keep this going!
Out of everything in your store, what item would you say is your favourite?
The whole Beistle range is what started it all really, so they will always have a place in my little black heart.
What has been your best seller so far?
By far, the Halloween scene tealight holders. They're HUGE and sell out within minutes each time we restock. That, and the American candy.
Some questions just for fun:
Is there anything you do every year at Halloween?
As my birthday, our wedding anniversary (Halloween-themed wedding, of course) and the big day all fall around the same time, we often take a little holiday. Just find a hideyhole in the countryside somewhere and put up all our decorations to celebrate, eat lots of candy and make it as autumny and cosy as possible. Blissful. This year may be a little different as our first Halloween in business, but I'm sure we'll make it work
Favourite movie to watch during October?
'Trick 'r Treat', but we have a tradition of watching 'It's The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown' on Halloween night.
Trick or Treat?
Treats all the way!
