Halloween Haggle Day

An age-old tradition at Cannery Row Antique Mall reflected a wicked Halloween theme this year, exposing the ghosts and goblins in us all. A perfect opportunity for our dealers to be dressed as wizards, mad scientists, hippies, witches, 1970’s Cher and even an Audrey Hepburn. The dealers were there to bargain, as customers took advantage of every opportunity to “make a deal.”display4

 

The party began at the front door as warm spiced cider filled the air. Our friendly greeters offered bags of popcorn and a gift from the mall, while directing guests to the upstairs lounge, where our face painter, drawings for prizes and a “gone fishing” game would await them.

 

Kids came dressed in costumes and left with painted cheeks while clutching bags of candy, and even the pets were dressed for show. Our staff worked non stop, which resulted in record-breaking sales for the weekend.

We live by the seasons. Halloween is special in that it creates a giant theatrical stage from which to celebrate. And here, at Cannery Row Antique Mall, we owe our allure in part to our historical surroundings. Happy Halloween!

 

 

Guests were offered sips of warm spiced cider, bags of popcorn & a mask as a remembrance of Haggle Day.

The kids had a blast playing “Gone Fishing” for their bags of candy.  A shout out of thanks to Lola for overseeing this carnival game, and a huge thank you to John Wood for building, painting and providing this whimsical piece of art.
