Spiders, and Pumpkins, oh my!
The tea room is decorated for the Halloween season... spiders, lots of spiders, eerily crawling up the lace curtains in the dining room. And vintage 1931 Beistle paper jack 'o lanterns are tucked here and there among the tea room nick knacks. The Beistle company is located in Shippensburg, PA. These die cut paper decorations that feature bats, cats, and witches were salvaged from the neighbor's garbage pile almost two decades ago. Just recently, a similar pair was spotted in a local antique mall marked 'rare' and sported a price tag of $180.00 for two. Must remember to handle these with care!
