As I have said before, it's unbelievable a author or tv show has not based a story or show in New Hope yet. With the various characters that live here and all the different communities here all living in harmony is quite something. We have the Stepford families, the LGBTQ, a huge crossing and trans crowd, bikers, many artist, and the witchcraft covens. Then throw in all the historical happenings and figures that lived or went threw here. Then their is the haunted and witchcraft side of the town. New Hope is always in a top 20 list of haunted places, and there is most certainly a "vibe" one feels in the city. Numerous places are haunted. And there is always some odds things around town to be seen. The Creeper Gallery is one of them. Yesterday the Capital Street Duo visited for the day along with other friends, Nevin and Kalen. It was a beautiful autumn day to get out. There was much eating, copious amounts of drinking , and just walking about New Hope and Lambertville. But this post is all about the Creeper Gallery.
The Creeper Gallery is a Gothic, macabre, dark, moody fine art gallery. Victorian antiques and anything peculiar and odd is found here. Their art is inspired by death and honoring the dead. Their curated Victorian & oddity offerings are all from a time long gone. In other words they are dealers in death. They do not do this for shock value, They do this because they must. All art is created by owners, D.L. Marian and Danielle Deveroux. All the items in the shop are made and created by them, and there is also many actual haunted items they have. While the shop may not be for everyone, there is no denying it is interesting to see. And many of the items are costly. Creeper certainly sums it up.
The story of the poor puppy. It belonged to a family and had gotten away and got hit by a car. The family was so upset by her passing they couldn't be with their pet. So they had her taxidermized. The family has now been long passed on, and the two owners now have her in their shop and hope she finds a new home. It was rather shocking to see a puppy in there.
An original copy of Poe Poems. And a fortune.
Meanwhile at one of my favorite shops, Love Saves the Day....
Then there was this. I didn't ask questions.
We ended our night at the Lodge in the Woods for some more libations, and some piano stylings of Liz Dufur. The Mistress got introduced to a very sexy guy, named Jefferson, by way of a lady from England of all people. Jefferson recently moved here from Venezuela. We talked for some time...that accent....and his English wasn't to good yet, so I was explaining many things to him. But later, we didn't need to speak any language for what we got up too. So there was that.
