Since my childhood I wanted to live in a haunted house . I loved the Addams family and munster show reruns and classic Horror movies. I always was a spooky fan. So I knew I wanted to open a shop like Ghostgap.
Ghostgap was named by my Mom. I had a few names in mind but I asked her what name would be great for a Halloween shop. She said they got a Gap store and why not Ghostgap? Unfortunately she is going blind and can no longer admire my crafts. Since she needs me to help her with her many handicaps I hope that Ghostgap can someday be my main source of income.
I want my shop to have the feel of a magical world of witches, bats, vampires, and faeries. I do not want people to view it as a Halloween shop even though that was the original idea. I got many styles from gothic, steampunk, to many other items you can wear year round. I do however like my jewelry to have either a mystical or gothic theme. Like moons or other items that remind me of the night. Somehow the night feels magical to me . Call be crazy but I love the night, autumn,and chilly air.I look forward to shorter days and love a candlelit night.Unfortunately I live in Florida since 96 so cold is a rare blessing How I got here LONG story!
I get mad when people say Halloween is evil research the history. I love the fictitious Halloween witch but Halloween stems from my celtic roots of Samhain and it simply is a pagan holiday.Everyone with celtic blood had witch ancestors and they did not worship the devil. Don't speak blindly be intelligent and research.
Halloween was fun in the 70's and 80's when I was a little girl and Halloween is magical and fun holiday or what YOU choose to make it..
Visit my Spooky Cute Team for those Who love SPOOKY CUTE things! I founded the team for those like me who prefer a cute comical monster over a blood dripping zombie.
Many of the thing I make are one of a kind and 99 % of the items are not a pattern and my design. Even If I use a pattern I alter it to make it my own and not a replica of another talented artist. I keep my items low to give poor folks like me a chance to own a unique handmade item at an affordable price.
The greatest part about Etsy is you find items that are handmade, ooak, or limited to one individual making an item you CAN'T find in stores.
