Steaming Mad Boiler Repair – 24 hour boiler repair and they’re happy to say their day begins when yours might end! This is a wonderfully whimsical design by shoppe artist Myke Amend. The original artwork is from a steampunk inspired children’s book he’s been working on over the years. The Attic Shoppe Trading Co. is a firm believer in supporting your local businesses–especially if it means your boiler won’t explode through the roof! All kidding aside, this is one of our favorites from our steampunk & old timey designs collection. You can see more from the collection here.
Twinkle, twinkle, little bat!
How I wonder what you’re at!
Up above the world you fly,
Like a tea tray in the sky. – The Madhatter, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
There is a little place tucked away on main street in *Orange Moon Downs called The Bat Emporium. You will find there a very unique woman who is known by her cabaret name Flossie Leather Feathers and who houses the most glorious bat cabaret you’ll ever see: The infamous Tea Bats.
The Tea Bats got their title from the Mad Hatter poem Twinkle Twinkle Little Bat and they have lived up to that name with their spectacular performances of flying tea cups and kettles and juggling spoons as they fly so high! There are all sorts of bats in Flossie’s cabaret, who found there way to her through all sorts of avenues. There are some who have sought refuge with her after growing very weary dealing with the title of flying rats and receiving no love in the world. Then there are those who heard tale of Flossie’s bat witness protection program where she helped give new identities to sought after bats in need. Whatever the method they happened to find their way to her, here they are now happy and living their best tea life in her bat cabaret.
The Attic Shoppe Trading Co. helps support Flossie’s vision by offering a variety of very unique designs that feature her Tea Bats. You can pick up a crest, such as Scruff the Red pictured above, or just show off the latest in bat with tea fashion. To see all of our batty designs just touch your wee mouse here (we promise our bats will leave it alone) and clicky clicky to see all our current designs and products.
*Orange Moon Downs is a fictional town in Bethalynne’s young adult series Snapdragon Tea. The Tea Bats were born there and are an active part of the ongoing stories and anthologies of the series. You can learn more about that at her site Orange Moon Tea Society. If you’re a bat lover please visit the Bat Sanctuary to learn how to support them or how to help bats in your area.
Once upon a time the very place you’re sitting now was a forest, or jungle, or maybe even a desert–it all depends on where you’re reading this from. The Attic sits upon a former forest and we know there was once a thriving fairy population here. Every now and then we see them peeking around the edge of a tree or looking up at us from under the deck. Some good folk in *Orange Moon Downs long ago decided the urban fairy could use a little help. Fresh flowers, thriving plants everywhere and taking care of our trees in urban areas–and sometimes giving the fairy folk a little help when they get lost in all the concrete and buildings of our modern world. This is how the Urban Fairy Rescue League was born.
The UFRL have sanctuary green houses all over this world and they’re ready to take in fairies and fae in need, sweet and grumpy alike. They have their own army of helper fae working with them. The Attic Shoppe Trading Co. designed its own line of UFRL merch to help these wee gweebers with their task. So now you can proudly support your local UFRL by displaying their fairies and causes on all your beautiful things! This is one of our more popular collection of designs that is suitable for all ages. You can explore all of our various UFRL designs and products here!
