30% off all Halloween at Dunhaven Place!

While Bertha waits patiently for someone to invite her to their Halloween Bash,

The Jack O'Lanterns are scared of a crash.

The Good Witch speaks to her familiar the crow . . .

. . . while Haunted House salt and pepper shakers line up in a row.

If you look closely you can see the ghost in the glass.

These handmade fabric pumpkins are screaming with class.

But whom, in the end, can't use this item:

"I have flying monkeys-don't make me use them."

What's New at Dunhaven Place?

Did you know that Dunhaven Place carries new items as well as old, vintage and antique? We also like to create new pieces out of the old. A perfect example is this gray-washed vintage cane back chair--it has been given a fresh lease on life with the applied antique wooden pieces and a crisp gray linen seat. It's a one of a kind piece you will find only at Dunhaven Place.

The following dresser is what you might call a double bow front chest of drawers--it has tons of fabulous detail and a gorgeous patina.

The following dresser is part of the same bedroom set. Very unique--we feel lucky to be able to carry these items at Dunhaven Place.

Though this chair isn't new (in fact, it's fairly ancient) but is is new to us. We LOVE the items enrobed in their original chippy paint--Bertha the Witch seems to appreciate it, as well.

We just received a collection of vintage Wilton Armetale wine and water goblets--12 of each! These haven't been put out yet but if you are determined to have these for your Halloween party or Medieval supper, ask to have them brought out of the back room.

The following item--set of four vintage maple chairs by Salem House with fresh new coats of black paint--is so new that three of them are still waiting for their new paint job. We also have a matching armchair. Whether you want a set of black chairs for your kitchen table or a wonderful Salem-style-witch black armchair for your front porch for the fall holiday season, these are the chairs for you.

Lastly, the deadline to enter the FB "like" contest is over at midnight Oct. 14th/Oct. 15th (basically, in the middle of the night between Friday and Saturday) with the winner of the drawing to be announced Saturday. Just go to facebook, search Dunhaven Place, (make sure you get the store and not the blog), and click the "like" button--then you'll be entered in the drawing for one of these beautiful fall-themed bracelets made by a local artisan. Thanks!

It's Halloween at Dunhaven Place

Need a place for vintage-style, one of a kind Halloween decorations? From our Bethany Lowe decor to our one of kind hand made items, Dunhaven Place has what you're looking for.

Our handmade banners bearing the words "Spooky" or "Wicked" are made using a font inspired by Guy Fawke's signature after being tortured for his part in the Gunpowder Plot in 1500's England. Spooky . .. .

Our hand decorated dolls each hold a hand carved pumpkin in their laps--the Witch is Bertha, the gal in Thanksgiving attire is Abigail and Cassandra is quite festive in her black and orange checked shawl.

Imagine a copper cauldron full of hot cider by the fire or a row of paper lanterns in the shape of witches hats warming up the chilly night!

And for the intrepid type who need something a little different for a costume this year, be sure to check out the Victorian Riding Hats complete with black netting and a row of skeletons.

Just a reminder that everyone who likes our facebook page between now and October 15th will be entered to win the bracelet of their choice as pictured below.

You can find the FB page by clicking anywhere on the red line above. Meanwhile, be sure to stop in and peruse the selection!
