September Newsletter
Now that school is back in session, it is time to get ready for fall in Door County! Fall is our busiest time of the year. With cooler temperatures and the changing leaves, September is a time to pack away summer clothes and prepare for something new. It is a time of getting ready for the exciting holiday season that is quickly approaching! In this newsletter, we wanted to highlight some of our favorite fall merchandise (and a few other things).

Halloween Broom
One of our larger selling items is our Halloween Broom. This life-size broom is sure to sweep up some fun at your home. This broom is touch-activated to move around and cackle; however, it doesn’t actually clean anything (but you will be having too much fun to notice). This broom can also be a silent attacker, in-case you need a break from the cackling.
Byers Choice Halloween Carolers and Accessories
Get in the Spirit of Halloween! This year Byers Choice has come out with three new Halloween witches. Our first caroling witch is the Jack-o-Lantern Witch. She is wearing a purple top and a black and white gingham skirt. She is ready for some trick-or-treating with her pumpkin bucket. Next up, we have the Cauldron Witch. She is wearing a black skirt, red top, and an apron covered in chili peppers. With her long grey hair, she is carrying a bubbling cauldron. Finally, we have the Spider Witch, she is wearing a green dress with black cape. She is carrying a basket filled with spiderwebs and a spider.

To complement these witches, we also have a Halloween Cat and a Halloween Dog.
Simmered Cider
One of our favorite fragrances of the fall season is Simmered Cider by Thymes. This fragrance is a blend of apples, clove, cardamom, with a hint of bourbon. It will fill your home with the warm fragrance of homemade apple cider. The perfect fragrance to compliment fall. We have this fragrance available in candles, diffusers, room spray, and wax melts. Order yours today and enjoy this warm fragrance for the entire fall season.
David Frykman Exclusive
This year’s Frykman exclusive, Door County’s Finest Santa , has arrived!!!!! Have you ordered yours? This year’s Santa is enjoying his favorite Door County wine and pays tribute to the 40 th Anniversary of his favorite gift shop, the Tannenbaum Holiday Shop. Each Santa is signed by David Frykman and numbered.
Radko Exclusive
This year's Christopher Radko exclusive is called St. Nick's Sleigh Ride. This piece showcases Santa in his magnificent sleigh. The sleigh is red and green with gold accents. Santa is sitting in the middle of the sleigh surrounded by mounds of presents. This ornament was designed and signed by both, Joseph and Mario (the artist behind all the Radko ornaments), making it an extra special piece. We are expecting this ornament to arrive in October, but we are taking preorders now. This ornament is sure to make a statement on your tree!
Halloween Village
Our new Harvest category adds the perfect decorative touch from Labor Day to Thanksgiving. The highly detailed, brightly colored Harvest Gazebo Gift Set takes center stage. Warm lighting floods the interior and lines the perimeter, casting a welcome glow as evenings arrive earlier. Add the included scarecrow, and maple tree in peak color. A sprinkle of leaves completes the scene. Each piece is hand-crafted: hand-drawn, hand-sculpted, hand-cast, hand-painted. 
An attached lit gate and tri-color lighting are main features that elevate The Last Laugh Asylum to one of the best Halloween designs that artist Scott Enter has ever created. This old decrepit mansion has faded from glory days past to haunting nights now. If any deranged clown or spooky zombie is bothersome, perhaps they belong at Last Laugh. The pile of luggage outside reminds us that once a creepy character checks in, they don’t check out. An eerie blue light illuminates the old widow’s walk, while the purple lanterns flanking the gate alarm trespassers to keep a safe distance. Complete your asylum with Jokes Over . When clowns go coo-coo, they require an upright gurney, and need to be strapped down tight.
Even skeletons agree, if excess bones are taking up your space, bring them to the Bone Grinder Mill . Deliveries are accepted via the hillside entrance, while any toxic gases are vented on the opposite side. Animated blades turn, making bone meal production a cinch. To accessorize your mill, get Bringing The Bones , a hardworking zombie brings a wheelbarrow full of fresh ‘Premium Grade Bones’ to the mill.
Finally, there is a new Halloween Village Gate . This gate features 2 lit lanterns at the entrance. The door was designed to complement the architecture of this series. Logo type sign welcomes both residents & visitors to this charming place we know & love as Halloween Village.
Tannenbaum's Reading Corner....
This month, we decided to highlight three of our Halloween books. One of our best sellers last year was the book Boo . This lift-a-flap book tells about some of our favorite Halloween activities, such as picking pumpkins, trick-or-treating, and hay rides. It is filled with fun trivia for kids. For example, did you know that black cats are a sign of good luck in Japan? With durable pages, this book will help any child get ready for Halloween.
This year we have a new Halloween book named “ Trick or Treat.” This board book tells the story of Halloween night with children getting dressed up, going trick-or-treating, and having a Halloween party. There are also three sounds to engage children in the reading process.
Happy Halloween Curious George, tells of the fall activities that Curious George gets to participate in. From visiting a pumpkin patch, decorating, finding a costume, and of course, having a Halloween party, George is getting into the Halloween spirit. By the end of the book, he is ready for bed and reflecting on all the fun he has had this holiday.
