A Wicked Christmas

If you are dreaming of a DARK and WICKED Christmas, then you will love these photos Crystal sent me of her shop, Gothic Rose Antiques, all decked out for the holidays! Crystal gives all the holidays her special fun and sinister twist and she really has a good time when it comes to the dark winter solstice! Just look at all the wonderful things she has displayed in her brand new shop – from a taxidermied reindeer head to a dark and twisted Christmas tree.
Gorgeous window displays at night!

A must for every festive door!

Old statuary dressed up in tinsel garlands ...

And the spooky Manfish - part man, part fish!
A ghostly cat ...
Crystal's fab dressing room
Everyone needs a bat for Christmas! (well, I do!)
And a present for the difficult people on your list!!

Crystal welcomes everyone to stop by and share in the magic. She is at 484 Main Street, Placerville, CA (530) 295-0703, or you can see her online at

Hope you had a great winter solstice season!
