A friend introduced me to the Victorian Trading Company catalog years ago. It offers old-fashioned style housewares and gifts that are the embodiment of the phrase “grandma chic”: lots of lace, tea sets, cameo pendants, rose motifs, etc. Best of all, in keeping with their Victorian sensibilities, the company loves Halloween! I always look forward to seeing their fall issue in my mailbox.

Here are a few of their seasonal items this year. I’ll take one of each, please.

These chairs are only 8.5 inches tall. Perfect for a “haunted dollhouse” scene, methinks.
