The Mexican holiday, Day of the Dead, or Dia de los Muertos, is upon us! From October 31st to November 2nd various cultures worldwide participate in Day of the Dead to celebrate their loved ones who have passed, and also provides the opportunity to rejoice life. The holiday helps celebrators recognize the cycle of life and live with more meaning and awareness. To celebrate Day of the Dead, people often create altars, dress as skulls, draw skull tattoos, or even visit the resting place of their passed loved ones. Altars can contain incense, sugar skulls, candles, photos of deceased, and even fresh fruit. Click here to learn more about creating a Day of the Dead altar. Let us help you create an altar and come check out our selection of colorful skull items, candles, and incense!

If your birthday is in October, prepare to get inspired because opal is your birthstone! The opal stone is known for enhancing the wearers creativity and confidence as well as imagination and memory. Opal can remedy headaches, eyesight, insulin regulation, immune system, and it even relieves PMS ladies. Wearing opal can also ward off nightmares and promote good dreams because of its soothing qualities. Make October a great birth month and find your inner peace with opal!
Lapis, the birthstone of September babies, is as rich in history as it is in color. Known for its deep blue shade, lapis has been used by all the great ancient civilizations such as the Egyptians, Persians, and Greeks. It was among the first gemstones to be worn as jewelry and can also be found in ancient figurines and grave décor.
It is no secret that here at Quarter Moon we love ethnic and fair trade products. One of our vendors, Tesoros Trading Company, never ceases to amaze us with what their artisans are crafting. What is even better is the fact that most of their merchandise comes from several different places, such as Peru, Chile, Haiti, Brazil, and India.
We typically carry Tesoros Day of the Dead collection, that includes a variety of sugar skulls and an array of skull figurines. All of the figurines have their own unique character and personality. There is a skull friend for everyone!
We also carry a quirky American-made ashtray from Tesoros that claims “Jesus hates it when you smoke.” It would be a great gift for your friend who has a sense of humor!
Welcome back students! Not only was last week the first week of fall classes, but it was also the first week of Florida State’s Market Wednesday at the Oglesby Student Union. Quarter Moon is one of the many vendors that participate in Market Wednesday, and we enjoy being a part of student life at FSU. We always look forward to chatting with students about how their days are going while they shop our unique mix of products. All of us at Quarter Moon are thrilled we get to bring a slice of our store onto your campus, and we can’t wait to share the rest of our Wednesdays with you!
