Hello and Welcome. Dear friends of Bewitching Peddlers of Halloween, You are welcome here. Please stay and fall in love with the most celebrated makers in the genre of fine Halloween artistry. As with many a magical story, the story of Bewitching Peddlers of Halloween is one steeped in friendship, deep tradition and the love of Halloween. Each year, over 40 of the most bewitching Halloween makers in the country travel to historic Marshall, Michigan to cast a spell of enchantment. It is our heartfelt hope to come back together safely. We have dearly missed you all. Our 2021 show will be September 25th. All of the artists have been selected for the 2021 show, but if you would like to be considered for future inclusion, please pop over the connections page. The artists of Bewitching Peddlers prove that a magical wand can be a paintbrush, casting a spell of enchantment. Each artist is a vessel for a story. A story that is captured inside and seeks to find its way out into the world. If only for a short time, the artwork is shared, the excitement soaked in, and the stories feed the Halloween soul.
Bewitchingly yours, J.H.Takens
