My Lowes had started setting up too. They mostly had some smaller items. I had hoped they would have everything out, which I thought they usually do by now. Oh well. I still picked up the Zombie Grave Raver, which is my first Gemmy Halloween item this year.
P.S. Zombiesmash: isn't that the worst? I've gone into Walmart's garden center in past years and seen it filled with boxes simply marked "Halloween". I just wanted to get them down and rip them open. But that's all part of the fun, isn't it? Going into a store and being shocked at its sudden appearance.
