    Sorry for your loss. Good luck with the revamping. I have a Harvester prop (new, just the box was somewhat messed up when purchased, so I took it out solely to try it) among the many items that I have been wanting to sell, so please message me if you are interested in it. This post shows the item: http://www.halloweenforum.com/for-sale-trade-by-individuals/146147-life-size-other-decorations-pictures-free-shipping-post1824886.html#post1824886

    Usually around mid-August is the proper start of the Halloween merchandise, so if you hang in there that much longer, you should be okay;)

    Rest assured that you are not the only one to hear offhand comments while browsing Halloween sections of general retail stores. Heaven forbid that Kroger (Kmart, Walmart, Dollar Tree, and so on) take away a small section that the fogies likely never came near until that very moment, and solely to complain:rolleyes: Nice purchases, everybody.

    Here is their Halloween selection: http://www.biglots.com/c/seasonal/halloween/_/N-2915497221#?Nrpp=999. First year that BL has offered shipping on the items and not simply said 'In Stores Only'. There is a coupon at the moment, good until the end of the month, that takes off quite a bit, should anyone want to order any of the products right away.

    Life happens, and not always in the best possible way(s). Rest assured that many are in the same boat (which could explain its near-capsizing). Remember, women and children first... Ah, screw it, just do whatever it takes to get to the lifeboat:p

    Actually, having worked there, I can give you other reasons for the low prices, probably the highest of which is lack of hours for the employees, which saves the company a sh1t ton:rolleyes: I would say that you have good taste, but I think that it is the pieces that actually do, since the dog looks at them as appetizers;)

    It would appear that they went with an undead Inspector Clouseau:D Some nice items. I hope that the prices have not gone up another few dollars, though, like last year's offerings; it would be nice if they took a break on the gouging for at least one year before raising them again:rolleyes:

    Well, they either have a new buyer or are finally taking notice of all of the comments made over the years about how great they used to be and attempting to right the sinking ship. Adios, paycheck:D

    They are nice. Have you seen the companion piece, a raven nesting atop a skull? If not, here is a repost of one of HalloweenBride's photos from earlier in the thread, lightened a touch to show the detail better. The thick skull candleholder is also great. Hell, the majority of this year's stock is; the gold items really do not appeal to me, but many others must have dug last year's pieces in that color for so much more to have been made that the hue warrants its own sizable section of the aisle.

    Walgreens is almost always late to the party. Plus, their offerings last year were pretty pathetic compared to those before, I would say.

    Garthgoyle replied to a thread It Remake in Horror Discussion
    Provided the first does well enough, which should not be a problem, I would think. So many remakes are pure rubbish, making it fantastic to see the studio/crew behind this one taking it seriously enough to wait until it is ready to be done properly to begin filming.

    Nothing. They start next month, usually around the middle. So far, the only store that really seems to have the majority of the Halloween section stocked is At Home. Even though Michaels only has one aisle at the moment, that stretch is filled with some true gems this year, in my opinion.

    I have no clue what some here are talking about (sounds like drama aplenty, whatever the case), but Spirit does have previews of a few more new items. Check their FB page and the website itself.

    Next month, there should be more showing up, I would think, as a good amount of the shown products have been available for some time. I remember them (Lakeside, but still) adding quite a few goods as it got closer to Halloween last year, actually, and having a lot left over and on sale not much after.

    It seems that the full range is now posted; some holdovers from last year, although there are quite a few new items, most of which seem pretty classy this time around.

    Their skeletal animals are wicked. Lots of great items. The gargoyle looks a bit more cheerful, though, even if it is holding a skull this time around.

    How cool. Instead of skulls or hands poking out of the roses, watch there be fake flowers with that look next year when the Halloween goods start appearing.

    Not that difficult to tell which letter it is, in my opinion. Now, if the top portion were illuminated, 'Rocus Pocus' would most certainly be the case, which would make Scooby Doo quite happy;)

    Things began turning up at the start of August, then far more went out near the end of the month, continuing until around the middle of September (with stragglers mixed in with the shipments at later dates).

    Hey there. Are you still offering instant slime samples? I am thinking it might be just what I need for my haunt this year.

    I got the samples of the instant slime the other day. My girls and I played with it and they helped my write a review for it under the REVIEWS section of the forum. Heres the link: http://www.halloweenforum.com/produc...ml#post1119900

    Thanks again, Marc V.
