Let’s Get Spooky! Halloween at Block Party Frankfort Avenue

Let’s get spooky! In honor of the tradition of Halloween on Hillcrest Avenue, we have decked out our Frankfort Avenue shop with lots of handmade Halloween goodies!  If you’re not familiar with Halloween on Hillcrest, more than 50 houses get transformed into an amazing Halloween wonderland, including our manager Katie’s Harry Potter house! It is a tradition that makes Louisville very unique and we are excited to be so close to it at our Frankfort Avenue location.  So are you ready to get spooky? Let’s share some of our favorite Halloween picks!

First up is our Ghoul Power Dress, handmade in the US,  available in S, M, L, $78.  Wear this cute fit and flare dress throughout the month to show your love for the season, or wear it instead of a whole costume. Pair it with some black tights, ankle boots, and a black sweater! Even better, add some cute handmade jewelry from the shop as well, like this locally handmade glass necklace from Ben Lang glass $30.
