From the Archives: Halloween Greetings

This post also appears on nyc circa

Go get your stamps! You only have two weeks left to make sure everyone you know has a Halloween Greeting card to open on the day of. Here's some inspiration from decades past:

Looking for a Halloween card for this year? The cards of today are less creepy and more cute, but this furry cat face card and this pug-themed card are a tiny bit of both.

Be sure to join us on October 25 for the Tricks and Treats Halloween Party at LeCarrousel.
