Creepy Crawly?

It was the spider that scared Miss Muffet off her tuffet.

Many of us don't really like spiders, do we?

Well, did you know that an old English folk saying simply explains that a spider on your clothing means you will have a good day? Or that you will come into money? 

Lucky you, because we have some clothing with spiders on it--assorted t-shirts for adults, youth and onsies for that little Trick or Treater!

It's your lucky day at the Dancing Eye Gallery!
