Being a small business ourselves, we understand the struggles of running the show as well as trying to gain exposure for your creations. That’s why you’ll be seeing a lot more of our new Coven Coveted feature – Small Business Spotlight. Firstly we have Manière Noire Shop ‘creators of obscure accessories, enamel pins and articles’. Their work is a beautiful display of the dark and twisted.

“I meant,” said Ipslore bitterly, “what is there in this world that truly makes living worthwhile?”
Death thought about it.
CATS, he said eventually. CATS ARE NICE.”

“Now open, lock!
To the Dead Man’s knock!
Fly, bolt, and bar, and band!
Nor move, nor swerve,
Joint, muscle, or nerve,
At the spell of the Dead Man’s hand!
Sleep, all who sleep! — Wake, all who wake!
But be as the dead for the Dead Man’s sake!”
– Thomas Ingoldsby of Tappington Manor
from the Ingoldsby Legends
