Happy Halloween!!!

Witch girl scardie cat

On Hallowe'en the thing
you must do
Is pretend that nothing
can frighten you
An' if somethin' scares you
and you want to run
Jus' let on like
it's Hallowe'en fun.
- - - from an Early Nineteenth Century Halloween Postcard

May your tricks be rewarded with lot of treats!!!

A Give Away!!!

The countdown is on!  Jump on over to Mementos on Facebook and become a fan!  This month+ long event ends on Halloween!   All fans will be entered in a giveaway of a custom party package for 20.  That’s right, you could be the happy recipient of a set of custom candy wrappers, water bottle labels and one other item from our line of party favors.  Perfect for your next special occasion! 

Candy bar wrappers and water bottle labels will be the same size as those in the bottom photo below.  And you can choose from tiny labels for mini chocolate bars, ‘kisses’ labels or coin labels (in bottom photo, top left) for your third item.  Or how about a ‘bag tag’, a laminated luggage tag to match your party theme?!  Add a photo (of that birthday person!) or your logo and you have a one-of-a-kind matching set for a special occasion!


Become a fan today!!!  The winner will be announced here on 11/1, together we’ll work on that perfect party package!


The fine print:  Candy and water are not included!  We’ll send you the printed wrappers/labels etc, you assemble them.
