    Was in a different store today. Looks like "Egyptian artifacts" are starting to emerge on the shelves. This was the only piece I saw today. She was 19.99 and tall like the Pharaoh from last year (who was not silver but black and gold). Figure they are companion pieces. Heavy like him as well. She is detailed all the way around like he was. Should have grabbed a photo of her back while I was at it. Sorry, but a nice piece. Here's the Pharaoh from last year. Possible he could restocked but...

    Did anyone watch the new season opener last night? I kind of remembered but then forgot when we got busy. It's repeating today during the day so will try to see it during one of those times. Here's a link to the A & E schedule. Nice that you can catch it online these days.

    Purchased the smaller of the two. My receipt gave the following dimensions: 11.75 x 8.75 x 3. After that it says "Md", so thinking maybe it's a medium size and maybe there were actually 3 sizes available at one time: sm, med and lrg--like nesting boxes.

    Found these book boxes at a Ross on the SF Peninsula (MV) and they were part of clearance items they had on the shelves (making way for new stuff soon?!). I immediately thought "perfect place for my Vampire slayer kit" that I had bought from BuyCostumes on clearance last year. And it fit! The small book box was 6.49 and the two larger ones were 8.49 each. Plan to line the interior in red satin and also include a small cross and holy water vial.

    Don't know about Trendy Halloween as a seller but they have a 5 ft realistic posable skeleton for 22.99 on their website ( ) . They have free standard shipping on orders over 49.99 but only on shipments less than 6 lbs, otherwise shipping starts at $10.99. BTW when I first loaded their home page there was an offer that appeared that I think said sign up and get 15% off but it only appeared when I first logged onto...

    If you are an early shopper, Grandinroad has a Presidents Day sale today (25% off and Free shipping -- PRES20PLUS -- until 11:59pm EST) and it includes all their Halloween Haven merchandise. Many of the props from last year are relisted with a ship date of July. The actual charge won't go on your credit card for payment until it ships (although I know my cc company will deduct the amount from my available credit for a period of time and then release it after some time--kind of a pain when...

    So sorry to hear that. Looks like they offer a great experience. Love the tree face on the fb page. If you are friends of theirs maybe they can put together a list for you (photos of some of the unique stuff that was taken) and share it with the forum so people can keep an eye out on eBay and craig's list for anything that they are trying to sell through those venues.

    Found this in the store today. Nice size for headstones, lightweight polystone (?), 12.99. First of the garden statutes I've seen that have halloween implications. They did have probably 5-6 of the phrenology head busts on the shelf. Photos have been posted before in the Ross threads so didn't grab one. Only other thing I saw was glass hollow skulls in various colors like pink and blue/green, more decor use than halloween I thought. Oh and I did look for the suitcases today but...

    Just read that Richard Hatch from Battlestar Galactica fame (Apollo) has passed away from pancreatic cancer. Only 71. Think I saw every episode of BG and he was my favorite character. Earliest I remember him acting was from his time on All my Children as Tara's boyfriend, Phillip. Always thought he was so cute, even as he got older he retained that handsome guy look. I know he stayed active at Comic Cons and just so sad to learn of his death.

    Shopping in a Safeway grocery store the other day and spotted this Death Wish Coffee Co brand of coffee. Came in ground, whole bean or pods. Love the packaging. Anyone try this to judge how it tastes? I'd almost buy it just to save the packaging for halloween use. I see from the internet that Walmart also carries it in the 16 oz bag whole bean, 5 lb bag ground, and K-cups. Prices for the 16 oz are a little less expensive than the grocery store pricing.

    Hmm. Assuming you are building a casket bar set up I would consider making it a 3-sided rectangle (4th side open to you behind the bar where you can access your mixology ingredients, maybe need posts along the open side to help support the top) with solid bottom base and an open top for the see through material to get placed on. I'd have the coffin carrying handles (or whatever they are called) used as bar towel holders. Paint or stain the outside of the casket and line the inside with a...

    Interesting comments. Not everyone flies when on vacation or going away to school but I can see it attracting a lot of attention at the airport, bag carousel, etc. It Luggage is a British company and in the luggage business for some time apparently and were the first to do the expanding pieces. See that they are selling the It skull luggage on amazon (search "It Luggage Skull"). They even made a skull and roses patterned hard case set. Sure Ross' prices are pretty good and might beat...

    Happened to notice these suitcases when I stopped in a store today from It Luggage. The tagging on it says "New Ultra Strong", 10 year warranty. Perfect slide, 8 wheel spinners. Expander 25% Extra Capacity. Didn't check out the price. If this year is similar to past years, Ross will start getting in Egyptian figurines and other cool items soon along with the spring merchandise. Last year found the large crocodile skulls and some Egyptian items on 2/22. Found a number of busts, human...
