Night 6
Mr. and Mrs. Craven - Mr. Castle's ex brother in law, Madame Corman's brother, and his wife. He has a fondness for gambling and borrowing money. She has a fondness for spending it.
Sir Hitchcock - A prominent figure about town and acquaintance of Mr. Castle. Has a fondness for telling stories. Not all of them true.

Madame Corman has pulled Mr. Whale away from Captain Hooper. "Blackmail!" she exclaimed. "Is that where the money has been going?" Mr. Whale's face instantly turns red with anger at her words. He turns to leave but runs right into Sir Hitchcock. "Bloody Hell" he shouts as Sir Hitchcock's drink spills onto his jacket. "So sorry" Sir Hitchcock apologizes "didn't see you there." Mr. Whale looks as if he is about to explode when Ms. Browning appears at his side. "No worries" she said cozying up to him. She uses her drink napkin to wipe the drink off his jacket. "I'll take care of this."

The party continues on as the hour gets late. Find the next clue to reveal the time of the murder.

Today's clue is hiding in Trinkets By Dana.
Need a little help finding the clue? You make me happy when skies are gray.

Featured Shop - Trinkets By Dana
Trinkets By Dana is run by Dana from Atlanta, GA. Her shop is filled with paper crafts, decor for parties and weddings, jewelry & accessories and original art/prints/fine art photography.

Escalating Arrows Knotted Bracelet  $8.50

How did you choose your shop name?
"My shop is like an antique shop-- you never know what you will find. I knew I would want to try a million different projects so I didn't want a name that would imply just one craft. I went with trinkets because it really embodies my shop's tangents well while reminding people that the little things are worth treasuring and being happy about. Now this is obviously a pun for the small items in my shop and the wonderful things in everyday life we tend to ignore or take for granted."

Hunger Games Tribute Keychain  $9.25

Why did you choose to make/sell what you do?
"I got on Etsy my freshman year of college to just look around and de-stress. I got inspired nonstop and knew right away what I wanted to try making so I thought why not sell it? Why not share it with the world? And 2-3 years down the line, here I am!"

Black and White Animal Print Origami Stars  $9.50

What inspires the designs/creations you make?
"Anything and everything! You should never feel limited in inspiration. When I'm taking a drive, I look at architecture/nature we tend to miss out on during everyday chores like the architectural details of downtown skyscrapers or the colors of sunset/flowers. I also love going to home decor/furniture stores (or skimming their magazines) because they have a combination of art and architecture to browse through-- plus I love home supplies... :)"

Sandy Island Knit Beach Bag  $20

What new designs/creations would you like to add to your shop in the future?
"Oh geez. That's tough. Right now, I have a collection of glass beads I bought abroad in a little bead shop in Galway, Ireland. I would love to have a jewelry making session with all these little guys. I usually find one or two projects weekly that I save for my weekend to try out. I consider it a reward to for getting through the week!"

Since we have a Murder Mystery theme going I had to ask the shops to share their favorite murder mystery/thriller/suspense movies.
"I really enjoyed I Am Legend when it came out (I watched it in theater twice) and it was the perfect combination of sci-fi and thriller that really kept me off edge. I always remember this scene in the beginning with a random lion that pops up out of nowhere and scares me half to death. And when the zombies decide to attack his house!! So scary. Okay, I'm done :)"

Come back tomorrow for the next featured shop and the next scavenger hunt clue. Oh, and don't forget to enter the big giveaway. You could walk away with some fabulous to-die-for goods from all 14 of our shops!


  1. Me too. Those little stars look good enough to eat, which is really strange considering I've never really had a craving for text-heavy foods. So adorable. ... And a great film pick. I Am Legend is infinitely re-watchable. Chandra @JUNKMILL
