    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

    I'm sorry for your loss, halo. I think it's wonderful that you are planning a special Halloween in her memory! The Harvester is a great prop~we have one. He's very creepy; good voice and sayings..not the run of the mill moaning. Happy harvester hunting!

    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.

    All valid points to ponder, Cloe. Target was a major player 5+ years ago Halloween-wise, then the big slump. Hopefully, they DO carry stock in-store...as many have commented, they want to see, touch, activate. We'll see when the Back to School stuff goes away. Eeew, the C word;) Keen eyes, Forhekset! Heh, no prop makers spell check in China I guess.

    Good question regarding stock, GoS. My experience was the same as yours, driving hither and yon...for nothing. To add insult to injury, the items were not available on line either. When I called customer service(yes to grumble), they said that each store only rec'd 1-2 of each of the props :eek: Talked to our local manager in person last year, she explained that Target Corp. wasn't going to 'overstock' Halloween items because they lose when they clearance out after Halloween. Guess by...

    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

    lilibat reminded us about repainting these props into something more to your liking-you could do that with the eyeball doorbell? As for the ghostly tv, two words...YARD SALE:D And maybe thrift stores? We found one for $5 and another one free-haul it away. Happy hunting!

    I totally snorted...lies, lies!! Love the skelly wolf too. Whichever store has them in first, be it Big Lots or Home Depot, I'm there. Happy to see more than one retailer will carry them..it's such a bummer when stuff sells out right away.

    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

    Hi

    Noted that you were an N-scale collector. Ever combine Halloween and trains? If I ever get the time to get back into the hobby, I have this idea for a Halloweentown N-Trak module, think it would be a lot of fun.
