We always love a good party! Inspired by one of our favorite Halloween books, No Such Things by Ella Bailey, we threw together a Halloween Ain’t Afraid of No Ghost Bash. We loved seeing our visitors get in on all the fun with their creative costumes! Plus customers who shopped at our store got the sweetest little Halloween manicure from Long Beach local Hey, Nice Nails! owners Donne & Ginney and bedazzled their very own witch party hat or pumpkins!. We also had spooktacular treats from Jessi Loves Sugar Cookies and Dipp N Chill.
We can’t forget about the show-stopping puppet performance from Hey Hey Entertainment. He kept the crowd laughing and cheering the whole way through!
Now onto our most favorite part of our annual Halloween party… the COSTUMES!!
Are you ready for the winners?! Here we go!

If you have heard of The Stork and the Beanstalk, then you know this baby blog has been ranked as one of the top baby blogs out there!
We met Ashley when she stumbled upon our first flea market booth back in 2012. It was vintage love at first sight! ;P She has been one of our number one supporters from the start of our journey and we are so thrilled to be joining her on her journey with her new children’s line, The Bee & the Fox.
Ashely and I have been talking about working together for sometime and on November 1st, we are teaming up! The Bee & the Fox will be holding their very first Pop Up shop at Sweet Threads. Not to mention Sweet Threads will be their very first retailers. It’s a first for many things! 🙂
Here’s an added bonus! Your child will also be styled in Sweet Threads one-of-a-kind vintage pieces for the photo and if you’re also interested in purchasing any additional items from Sweet Threads, you will receive a discount. The Stork and the Beanstalk will be emailing you the high resolution image (s) of your child. Here’s the details!
Check out the many ways to style The Bee & the Fox tees designed by wife & hubby team, Willy and Ashley from The Stork and the Beanstalk. All other items styled with tees will be available at Sweet Threads.
2 years ago when Sweet Threads decided to sell at the Rose Bowl Flea Market, we didn’t realize we would meet someone who we would now call our friend. That person is Ashley from The Stork and the Beanstalk, voted one of thee Top Baby Bloggers out there! She has supported us with our business from the start and now she is evolving doing even more amazing things! Her and her husband, Willy have started a new children’s line, The Bee and the Fox. Cute name, right?! We are so thrilled to join forces to offer a giveaway and are honored to be the first retailer for their line!
Ashley photographed an inspiring photoshoot for The Bee & The Fox last week and we wanted to share some of the images with you. Styling for the shoot was by her dear friend and child stylist extraordinaire Heather Rome, with vintage clothing provided by us, Sweet Threads!
The winner can select whichever design they prefer. There are four:

The shirts are screen printed on American Apparel tee’s in sizes 2, 4, and 6 and they are super, super soft.

Sweet Threads had a fun time working on this project with Millipy designing playful crowns and bandana bibs! This collection is inspired by Sweet Threads‘ favorite shop colors and the start of Fall! Sweet touches of tribal woven textiles + Millipy prints were designed into the collection.
