    Question Questions From A New Spooky Town Collector

    I just became interested in Spooky Town after getting a great deal at BJ's Wholesale Club after Halloween (14 Piece set with the Masoleum for $30) and have been looking around for pieces to add to my new collection. I know Michael's sellls Lemax but I notice they are significantly higher than even the "suggested retail price".

    For the christmas village the price the wanted for a piece called "The Village Arcade" was $60 but the retail price even on the internet is $35! So even using their 40% off coupons they are not giving anyone a deal. I got many of my Lemax Christmas Village houses at a grocery store called Stop and Shop, at least they don't jack up the price.

    Are there any other brick and motar stores besides Michaels that sell Spooky Town? Any trusted web stores? I know shipping costs are a consideration but I would prefer not to shop at Michaels. IMO almost doubling the price then giving a coupon is a joke.

    Sorry, not-turtle here - sounds like you got a good deal on the Spookytown set. During the season I wait 'til on or around Halloween to pick anything up at Micheal's (unless it looked like they were going to sell out of an item I wanted) because that's when they put everything on clearance. Our Meijers store sold a few Spookytown items, but didn't have the complete fall collection. Also, we have a Menards (Menard's ) that sells Lemax, but packaged under the "Pumpkin Hollow" brand. These are usually cheaper than "Spookytown", though it's the same stuff. I agree, it's nice to have an alternative to the expensive Spookytown stuff!

    Here's the 2 best online sites:

    http://lemax-spookytown.com

    http://www.lemaxvillages.com

    As for stores other than Michael's they are few and far between unfortunately. Lowe's and K-Mart have a line with their own names on it made by Lemax. Fewer and fewer Wal-Mart's unfortunately are carrying any Lemax any longer. Some areas have a store called Garden Ridge that sells Lemax in season. Theirs a hobby store in Manhattan called Michele's Hobbies I think that sells Lemax, and there used to be a store in Florida called Robert's Christmas Wonderland that sold a lot of Lemax. Also a store called Stop N Shop in New England sells Lemax during the seasons only. And as others have said ebay is a good source at times for Lemax. Good luck with your new hobby.

    Default Thanks for the info

    Thankyou all for your replies. You folks with the Menards, Garden Ridge and Meijer stores are sure lucky. I notice every year these stores mentioned here on the forum as having a good selection of Halloween items.

    Our Kmart didnt sell Spooky Town this year but did two years ago and even had some pieces 75% off but I didnt collect at the time (believe me, I am still kickin myself over that one). Lowes? I didnt know Lowes carried Lemax, wow I have four of them in the area, never thought to look. Is that just for the Christmas villages?

    Hey Halloweiner does Stop n Shop have Spooky Town? They had a nice assortment of Lemax Christmas, I was surprised to find that in a grocery store.

    Yeah the deal at BJ's was good, even at the regular price of $60. I thought that was high but when I checked the prices online I saw that the Masoleum alone was $60. I got in my car and raced back to the store to get the set.

    Okay jack here i am....ive got another site to add to ur list. They have great prices and they offer layaway. Which is great for that off season and building ur trees and moss supply up. I would definately suggest gettting several adapters as well. Other wise you are gunna go through hella batteries and with adapters you can hook everything to turn on with one switch. I have an extensive collection of Lemax and D56. Ill be happy to send you some pics if you want to see my village. Its a 12x8 L-shape thats 4'wide. I will be happy to help in any way i can. The link is... www.houseoftam.com noel and theresa are awesome people. They will help anyway the can. They also offer free shipping if ur order is over 250 which mine always is. I hope that helps.

    Also look your stuff over well before buying because it breaks easy. Every house I've gotten has had something broken. They were all unopened from Michaels.

    Anybody know what is good to glue it with? My chain won't stay on my laboratory's roof and the a bat and the wind vane came off my house of wax.
