Finally, it’s October! There is just too much year between Octobers, don’t you think? You know how much we love to fill our show year up with weekenders, festivals and rallies. Now we’ve done our last show of the year, we’re feeling a well-deserved rest is on the cards... but guess what? That’s just not going to happen! Instead, no sooner have Cam’s peeptoe wedges hit the Welcome Mat at B&C HQ than she’s packing her bags and flying out to the ole USA
She’s going to be in L.A. until mid-November, soaking up some sunshine and sourcing some great new lines for Bow &Crossbones. It is a seriously exciting trip with will hopefully yield some seriously exciting stock! If you are in the area and know any rockin’ hotspots that you think Cam should be checking out, let us know?
Speaking of things that are flying out (geddit?) our spooky Skelemingoes have been popping up in all sorts of places. As lovers of kitsch, we have always had a soft spot for Halloween, so when given the opportunity to stock this seasonal themed version of the Classic Lawn Flamingo, we just couldn’t say no. Luckily, there’s still just enough time to get this unusual slice of Americana on your lawn before Halloween!
Of course, we know the celebrations don’t end with October 31st and the Skelemingoes happily sit alongside our HUGE range of Day of the Dead inspired pieces. Día de Muertos is celebrated in so many ways in different places around the world! Bow & Crossbones have bought some bright and beautiful pieces together for you to honour the occasion. You can shop the range here
. Our range is bursting with flowers, sugar skulls and traditional Mexican design touches, plus kitsch little additions like these Day of the Dead Candy Sugar Skull Candles...
Before we disappear on our broomsticks, we want take this opportunity to say thank you for all the great support we have received from the rockabilly and vintage community! You’ve all helped the site in so many ways and we look forward seeing old and new faces at next year’s shows. Please keep in touch with us here at B&C News or over at Facebook or Twitter because you can be sure we’ve got some great things coming before the year is out!
