    I'm pretty sure that Shopko has them, but if I recall correctly, you don't have one nearby? They're $25 there. They have orange, purple, and two projection lights, the ghosts and the spiders.

    Do we still have two 99 Cents Only threads? The search engine is only pulling this one up. Do we have more photos yet? I'm having withdrawls, not having a store near me. ;)

    I'm going to have to read them all, eventually. I wasn't a fan, until long after I read one of his books. I really disliked how the scene jumped around from place to place, while I was reading it. Afterwards, it grew on me, and I've often thought that I'd like to pick up another one and start over. I think I'll start from the beginning this time. Our library really didn't have many of his books at that time, so the one that I did read was Night Watch--the earliest book that they had a...

    LairMistress replied to a thread Shopko 2015 in General Halloween
    They do usually come up with a few unique items. I haven't seen the skeleton wreath elsewhere yet, but I haven't been out much, either. Of our local stores, besides Shopko, the only ones to have anything out at all are Dollar General, Walgreens, and CVS. Family Dollar and Dollar Tree are fall-only so far. Our Ace, Home Depot, and Walmart had nothing over the weekend. (although I personally did not go into HD, I called)

    That would have been my luck! I would have been holding my breath, for sure! I may possibly be in the vicinity of a Home Goods on Wednesday, but I'm not positive. I hope that it's not too far out of the way, so I'll have a chance to at least stop in and drool. I don't suppose that they carry the "stacked Jack o'lanterns" that TJ Maxx had? I didn't find them at our TJM store. That's the only thing left on my want list. Although, I'll probably have a new want list, if I do make it to Home...

    More to come, as they finish stocking...our store is soooooo slooooooow! As usual, their prices are twice everyone else's prices, and they have their gimmicky "50% off sale" through Oct. 31.

    Col. Fryght replied to a thread Lowes in General Halloween
    The Lowes that I went by today had about 100 boxes of Halloween stock on a top aisle shelf as you walked in. A store employee told me that they have not received their point of sale diagrams, and will not put out stock until the diagrams are released. Pretty much, what everyone else has been saying on this thread.

    I know, I JUST posted this in the "didn't buy" thread earlier, but... I went back to look at the "face out ghost" at Goodwill. It's the same face, light, and mechanism as the Gemmy spirit ball that I also bought there (yesterday). My 4 yr old talked me into buying him. I didn't argue too much. ;) The video below is public, if you'd like to see him in action: https://www.facebook.com/amie.shive/videos/vb.673175568/10153496456760569/?type=2&theater&notif_t=like

    Sorry Jdubbya but the clowns are non-existent this year except for a few masks. They were still building their big scene of a Zombie subway platform. I felt sorry for the workers, it looked like a real complicated cardboard build. The subway scene is huge with an entrance that includes lamp posts. The display in the front was of a swamp house with animatronics placed around it. A few items that caught my eye were the magic spell book at a reasonable price of $35 and the rat skeleton. Spirit...

    I thought that I snapped a picture, but my camera didn't cooperate. I almost bought a talking "face out" hanging ghost for $10 yesterday. Still in box, worked perfectly! I'm fighting myself about going back for him today.

    There seem to be a few variations of those skeletons and what they're holding, how they're holding it and what color. I've seen them in a few stores in the Atlanta area and picked up one the other day.

    I can't wait for our Dollar Tree to start stocking, and for our Shopko to finish stocking. Shopko will be carrying some silhouette packages for $4, but they didn't have them out yet today. I'll check out DT's too, before deciding whether or not to make my own. I only wish that I hadn't hidden those purple C9 bulbs from myself...and the box of electric candles is mysteriously missing, too. I may need to start stocking up on those again. Surely I haven't given all of them away already!

    Go ahead, ask me what I bought today! Oh...you already did? I see... This is what I bought today! I'm a little bit excited, can you tell? ;) Occasionally, I will find a "longed for" item at a thrift shop, but not very often. I actually snuck out of the house while my little guy was napping (leaving Dad in charge, of course), so I could go to Shopko and use my $5 off coupon before it expired tonight. Then I happened to drive past Goodwill, and saw that their "Open" sign was...

    I am going out tonight to visit a Spirit store in a neighboring town, so I will report back. I am excited that my local Spirit store finally put out a now hiring banner this week. I was beginning to get worried that it would not open. But they had to move locations this year and the new location is an old Office Depot. So maybe the rent on such a large location is much higher and they could not afford to open early. I just hope they take advantage of the size and do not partition down to a...

    Similar to Frankie's girl suggestion you could age them with paint. I start by painting the statue black. I then drybrush white or grey. Finally, you can also drybrush a little moss green color in spots to make it look like lichen or mildew. One other subtle suggestion is to paint the pupils of the eyes white. It can give the impression the statue is looking at you. Good luck.

    I have a "Weeji" board, sealed in plastic, from Five Below if anyone is interested. $5 plus shipping. It's very lightweight, a folding cardboard board, and I do have one that is open that I'm keeping, but I can take photos of it if you'd like to see details. I also have the TJ Maxx spell book with skeletal hands that I'm willing to part with. It's made of resin, moderately heavy for its size, but not bad. There's nothing wrong with it. I bought it a week ago, but I've changed my mind. If...

    Our Walgreens must have just started stocking shelves today. One store had maybe 10 products on the shelves (all small cutesy things and window clings), besides half a row of candy. The other store had more, including the new and very poorly made poseable skeletons with the extra tiny feet and hands. There just wasn't anything worth buying there, yet. They had one leftover NBC cup from last year, but no new NBC merchandise at all. They had several boxes on a cart, but I read all of the...

    I know it will be hard for you to put away your great looking cemetery, but a change can help keep you interested. My wife has mentioned keeping all of our full size witches in storage this year and concentrating more on the clowns. I think people burnout because either they get bored or they grow their haunt beyond a hobby level into a second job. I think going to clowns and having LewLew's help will prevent boredom and stress from setting in.

I suggest that we stack the bodies in the cellar, lock it, leave quietly one at a time and forget that any of this has ever happened.
