the spookiest small shop finds this halloween season

Happy Fri-YAY!

If I'm known for loving two things, I'm known for loving Halloween and Disney Small Shops.  Part of the reason I started this project was to shed a light on all of the amazing creators in the Disney community-- and I don't know anybody who works harder than the owners of Disney Small Shops.  So I figured that today, I'd shed a light on the intersection of these two passions of mine.  Today I'm going to talk about the best Halloween-themed finds in the Disney Small Shop community.

Pumpkin Stack Shower Frosting

Wonderland Magic Bath Co.

Wonderland Magic Bath Co. has been spreading positivity and homemade, cruelty-free bath products throughout the Disney fan community for just over two years now.  You may recall last year when Micky, the maker, went viral for her Hocus Pocus themed bath line.  It was covered widely by Buzzfeed, POPSUGAR, and even Cosmopolitan!

It's hard to not fall in love with Micky's cleverly themed products.  My personal favorite this season is the Pumpkin Stack shower frosting.  Inspired by the iconic pumpkin stacks that set up camp on Main St. USA Every year, this scent holds notes of blueberry, pumpkin, and spices.  Just try not to eat it.

You can support Micky and purchase the Pumpkin Stack Shower Frosting here.

Not So Scary Party Pocket Tee

Mickey and Mandy

I gush about Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party every chance I get, so obviously, I am obsessed with this shirt.  The mother and daughter duo known as "Mickey and Mandy" have done the impossible: tracked down the iconic PAC/Treat Trail CM costume patterns and turned them into gorgeous pocket t-shirts!  If you're going to a Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, but you're not quite keen on the idea of wearing a costume, this shirt is perfect for you.  Or if you're like me, and just want to rep your favorite hard ticket event every day of your life, this shirt is also perfect for you.

Either way, it's perfect and you can buy it here.

Coco Alebrije Inspired Ears

Melissa & Beatrice over at Lebownitte are probably two of the hardest working creators I've ever seen in my entire life.  You have to follow these two on IG to fully understand how hard these two work, working round-the-clock to debut new designs, set up IG sales, mail out orders, and set up shop at local sales in their area.  Not only do they work hard, but their craftsmanship is unmatched in the realm of small shop ears.  Every maker has their own style, but there's something to be said about the unique, over-the-top and all around gorgeous designs that Melissa & Beatrice put out.  Don't believe me?  Just ask Ariana Grande.

They have a lot of amazing Halloween designs, but I chose this stunning Coco design because that's where their passion lies.  They love Coco, and this is just one of the many fabulous Coco-inspired pairs that they've done throughout the season.  You can buy this pair (or fall in love with another pair!) here.

I can't make a post about my favorite small shop finds without mentioning my all-time favorite small shop... UP-Cycled Disney!  I have been so beyond blessed to work with Kalyssa since she launched UP-Cycled Disney Shop this past summer.  Not only is she the sweetest person alive, but I am 100% committed to her mission of creating eco-friendly and upcycled products with a Disney flair.  Pins are very in right now, and these homages to my favorite Pixar movie always find their way into my Manhattan street style, whether they're pinned onto my backpack or my favorite jean jacket!  If you're a Haunted Mansion fan, you 100% need this subtle and trendy pin.  Rep the 999 happy haunts wherever you go.

Spooky PLMouse 

Pretty Little Monograms

I make absolutely no bones about how much I adore Lindsay over at Pretty Little Monograms.  Lindsay spreads her colorful, Lily-Pulitzer branded, monogrammed magic all over the internet on her stunning IG accounts.  Pretty Little Monograms is one of the hottest Disney Small Shops right now, which offers stunning hand-crafted monogrammed apparel.  Her designs are subtle and clever, with just the right amount of pixie dust-- perfect for the millennial Disney fan.

Currently, you can't purchase the Spooky PLMouse design.  Womp-womp.  The custom Halloween monograms have been discontinued for the season, as the typical production time is 4 weeks.  Lindsay takes great pride in her work, and works hard to make sure every single item she mails out is handcrafted with love and special attention.  I just couldn't make this post without giving a special shout-out to this design, it's one of my favorites from her!

You can purchase her work here, including her iconic monogrammed rain jackets!
