Nevermore Decor: Thrift Store Necromancy

I love thrifting. The old axiom really is true; one person’s trash is another person’s treasure. I find items in second-hand shops all the time that are sturdy, built to outlast the ages, useful, and incredibly ugly. There’s no reason such well-built things should end up in a landfill when all they need is a make-over! And that’s where I come in. It is my mission in life, my passion, to bring these items back to life, Frankenstein-style.
(Feel free to picture me cackling “It’s aliiiiiiiiive, bwah hah ha ha!!”, with lightning in the background and paintbrush in hand)

I am the Goodwill Necromancer; I resurrect ordinary decor items from the thrift shop and give them new, creepy lives as handmade Halloween decorations/everyday Gothic decor.  I really enjoy the transformation; seeing something go from junk you wouldn’t give a second glance, into an eye-catching, unique, sometimes beautiful and sometimes strange, objet d’art for your home. Or a terrifically disgusting prop for your next Halloween party. You’ll see a little bit of both here.

If one of my creations happens to capture your spooky li’l heart, and you want to take it home and make it your friend, pop on over to my Etsy shop and see if it’s for sale! I’m funnier and more attractive there.  You can also feel free to like me on Facebook, follow me on Pinterest, and just generally stalk me across the Internet and tell all your friends about me.
