    Next to the local dumpster, I found a perfectly good office chair, used, with just a few scuffs on it, nothing wrong with it otherwise. I needed a good chair for miscellaneous spooky chores. Brand new it would've been a $200 chair!

    Not exactly a Halloween find, but it will be used to help build spooky things!

    Well I can tell you about one I missed. Just after Xmas I was on my garbage run to the transfer station and someone had left 3 of those motorized reindeer in the "reuse" area. I was in a hurry and in the middle of my Halloween burnout hangover so did not take them. I've been kicking my own A$$ eve since. Grrrrrrr!!!!
    But on a more positive note I did raid my S.O.'s collection and found lots and lots of cool bottles and jars for next years Alchemists shop scene. She has been saving all kinds of stuff for ages and now I'm glad she did.

    Nice! Glad I dropped in to see this thread. Been stopping by our local thrift shops too and have begun collecting some bottles we'll be using for this year's haunt. I've been making labels for some of them, aging the corks, sanding the glass etc.. guess this gives away our theme but what the hey!

    Nice collection you've got there.I'm not doing labels yet but have done some other work on lids and corks ,
    I was thinking of starting a thread either here or in props on creating our alchemists shop and accessories. Get some input on what others have done prop wise etc etc.

    I picked this up from an acquaintance who was clearing out their garage. It's cardboard, and definitely a fixer-upper project, but I liked the shape and think I could reinforce it somehow to make it a better overall prop. It could also use a better paint job and a new foam face to carve some better detail into.

    I haven't been posting much here lately but I hope to be back strong soon. I just had to post this find to see if anyone knew anything about it. Found it at a local thrift store and it's hand painted with no markings except the name and date on the back. It caught my eye because of the fairies or wood nymphs (or whatever they are) on the border and other elements you don't see on Halloween items in this day and age, it looks very retro to me even if it's marked 2010. If it's local and one of a kind then whoever did it has some talent. BTW it's make of wood.
