Just posted in the Coupon/Discount area of a 20% offer I received in my email. Code and details there.

Looking at VTC's halloween selection right now and liking the look of their Trembling Spellbook (24.95). Believe this is new for 2016. The book doesn't open but when it's touched the eyeball on the cover and the keyhole light up and blood curdling sounds come out from the book. No video yet. http://www.victoriantradingco.com/item/80-ha-8027788/107100/trembling-spellbook

They have a light up and sound sprit ball. Again new I think for 2016. 24.95 http://www.victoriantradingco.com/item/80-ha-8027794/107100/mystical-magic-ball

Other props include My Beloved Figure ( a torso head prop, 69.95) http://www.victoriantradingco.com/item/80-ha-8024781/107100/my-beloved-figure ,

a Peeping Thomas (49.95) a victorian take on voyeurs (partial upper body) http://www.victoriantradingco.com/item/80-ha-8024779/107100/peeping-thomas ;

a Calling Heaven Spirit Board (Ouija like) 29.95 http://www.victoriantradingco.com/item/80-gm-8023689/107100/calling-heaven-spirit-board . Not sure if this is new or a return item. Dozens more items listed.

A few of us now have the Peeping Thomas and you can find photos of it under past year threads for this company. I like my guy a lot and he can always be given a body if you decide to modify him later. Figure he's kind of half the price of a full size prop LOL being he's kind of half a prop.

oops didn't look when I searched for a 2016 thread for VTC and found this. Had thought it was a regular General Discussion Board company shopping thread.

Maybe a @@Moderator can transfer it there as I don't think a thread has been started there otherwise?? Thanks.

I am curious about the Trembling Spellbook. I just no more room left for tabletop items.

I grabbed a Peeping Thomas when he was on clearance last year. I'm going to use him to create a groom in my haunted honeymoon suite.

I got the latest catalog and the instant I saw the painting on the cover - "Fin del Verano" - I almost immediately ordered the print, I have rarely seen anything that so perfectly encapsulated my feelings about autumn. I am sure that framing and glazing it will cost far more than I paid for it, but its going to happen. Also picked up the "Autumn" print, for the heck of it since it was on sale for $6.99 at the time.

Love VTC and occasionally order from them, just to make sure I stay on their catalog mailout list. Seasonally-themed for the win.

30% sale going on for one day at Victorian Trading now. Some nice halloween I'd love to pick up if I hadn't spent all my money already!! Have always loved the witch weather vane, the trembling spell book looks nice, mystical magic ball another, also like that tattered witch's flag. They have a two LED framed art pieces that are kind of interesting. Oh well sure someone here will be shopping instead of me. Posted code under the Coupon area but it's also on the website now.

OK so I broke down and bought a Trembling Spellbook when they had their Cinderella Sale at 30% off along with a few other people on here who purchased one as well. Here's some pics:



The book is very light weight and appears to be made from a craft foam and is hollow inside I assume. The book doesn't open. It is animated. When touched it gets triggered and it vibrates, screams and it's eye and keyhole light up with a green light. It's a pretty nice effect and look overall. It sells at 24.95 but during their Cinderella sale we got it for 17.46 (30% off). SephiaKeys reported that her eye had issues with it (including a crack in it), and mine has an issue with the eye although not as bad. As you can see from the close up photo below the iris and cornea are covered with this clear "resin?" dome and mine appears to have a bubble in it. It does distort the iris a bit but for the sale price I'm not going to bother to try exchanging it.



The 2AA battery compartment is located on the back side of the book and has a pull away tab that gives you access. The last photo is of the book being activated in a darkened room with it's eye and keyhole lit.



Overall I think the concept is pretty cool. I like the stamped embossing of the lettering and design flourishes and how the book overall is painted. If my eyeball didn't have a bubble underneath the covering, I'd be 100% totally happy with it, especially at the sale price. I'm sure the kids will like it.

I looked at that book too during the sale but just couldn't decide. I ended up getting Mad Maude Haunted Frame mostly because I find the Gypsy girl mesmerizing for some reason. I got it a day or two ago and like it really well. The frame rocks on the wall, it does make sounds ( not sure what to call them) and her eyes light up ( which I wish they didn't) but over all really happy with it. Reminds me of something you would see at Disney ( the moving part) on a poor mans scale that is. I've never done video before or I would put one up, do you just upload like the same as pics??
Back on the trembling book , I noticed a very similar if not the same book in the Rogers Garden video, they must be selling it too. They have a lot of the Bethany Lowe stuff Vic Trading sells as well.
