Rogers Gardens 2013

In a world where the retail side of Halloween seems to be ever shrinking – Rogers Gardens in Corona Del Mar, California maintains a definite annual presence.  The team takes the time and effort to construct theme and ambiance to offer its loyal customers a thoughtful and creatively spooky “Mecca-like” destination for a unique Halloween pilgrimage.  Here are some pics from this years offering – but check out the website for a more complete viewing of their display for 2013 and past years.

Collections

I have amassed what constitutes a considerable collection of items I refer to as “good pieces of Halloween”.  This group of items has overrun bookcases, rooms,closet and garage space as well as garage space in friends garages. These items represent over thirty years of collecting and I will be showcasing some of my favorites here.
