The shadows are getting longer, and the nights are getting darker. A barely perceptible chill brushes against our shoulders, reminding us that we’re entering into Autumn, with its time honored traditions that encourage us to let loose and embrace the darker, wilder side of life. It’s no secret that we at New Stone Age have a particular fondness for this time of year, and a flair for celebrating it in truly unique style.

Most of our finds are so eerily enchanting that we think they deserve to stick around long after the dark nights of revelry have passed.
