    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.
    I find that people are often much less scary after being poked in the eye.

    The Zombie sings a song by that One Direction group, the Witch sings the "WildOnes(?)" song. Not sure if that is the title or just in the song. The Skeleton sings that "Locked Out of Heaven" one by Bruno Mars. Don't quote me on any of that, I know next to nothing about music (titles, artists, etc.).

    That's how Lowe's is, usually. They don't have a lot of Halloween. They usually have one end cap, and just really, really tiny bit down an aisle.
    "Dollar Tree - The High Price to Pay for $1 Prices" China stuff, taking out other stores, around every corner - 136 in 100 miles, poor wages for employees. - I only say this because people say the same stuff about Wal-Mart, but than they go to Dollar Tree.

    They usually only fill one end cap, but it is pretty much all Gemmy and a lot, if not all, of it is exclusive to Lowes. So for me that is pretty cool. I would rather have a small selection of really interesting, quality décor than aisle after aisle of cheap stuff.

    Default Lowe's Halloween Endcap

    Stopped in Lowes today and this store had their halloween out. Downsized from last years area unless they add more later, but I'm doubting it. Still the one endcap same as last year, but they had more airblowns on display last year (2 this year) and also maybe 3 of the Gemmy animated props on display (1 this year). The small halloween stuff had a small mini row of display racks last year and just one small section this year. Here's what I saw in my store. Pricing is listed in my album when I could read it off my photos.

    I liked the look of this Mr. Bones Jangles skeleton. Sorry didn't see how tall he was but I'm guess maybe 4 feet. Liked the coloring of it.



    Thought this was a nice easy and fun way for little kids to decorate a pumpkin without cutting or painting anything:



    This was the top display section of the end cap, left to right:

    Default More LOWES, Set 3





    Sarah The Sassy Witch, was animated in that her head turned first to left side then center then to right side. She spoke but her mouth didn't move. Quite a departure from Gemmy's other life-size animated witches of previous years. No misting cauldrons or stirring witches.


    I also remembered seeing a small fogger, light strands, spider webs, pumpkin cutting and gutting tools. Didn't notice that hanging bat someone posted a picture of earlier in the thread. Might have been on the top end cap but I didn't notice him or remember seeing a box for it.

    Well that's it. I was with Hubby looking for garden things and had to stop to check out the display and grab pics for everyone. He's not a halloween person so was bugging me move on...there might have been a few things I missed. And like I said in my first post the display this year was definitely downsized from the previous year and maybe some other stores will have more out.

    The Gemmy Head Dropping props that Lowes carried last year (Lowes had a reaper and maybe a skeleton) and that Home Depot had and I got on clearance online last year (a witch), all seem to have disappeared from the line up this year so far. I kind of liked that movement.

    I was in Home Depot the other day and noticed that they now have the pink foam board, used for tombstones, pre-cut. Perfect for small tombstones and for those who may not have a vehicle or trailer to carry a whole sheet.
