    That's what I am saying too you guys! The last few years has been SO BAD. They put out the same merchandise every single year now and it takes them FOREVER to put it out. I also see a Christmas isle not long after the Halloween is out. Why can't they push the back to school where Christmas would go and put out the Halloween sooner? I feel like whoever their buyer/seasonal specialist is, does a terrible job. They just order the same stuff every year. People want variety!

    Yay! So glad to hear it. Whats funny is a lot of people had issues with their globes too. Mine wouldn't light and the new one I bought was missing a spring. So I ripped the spring out of mine, swapped the sticker skew off the new one and returned the old one. I don't feel bad since I bought it broken! LOL

    You will never guess what I came across, a headless horseman snowglobe. ONE. One spring was missing from the inside of the battery pack, so I took it out of my other one and returned it. It only took two of them for the head to light up. LOL

    Oh my gosh, WHYYYYYYY did they do this?!!! It was horrrrrrible. Awful. It was very "lets showcase to the lowest common people who watch reality tv shows." Which, I don't and despise. This was nothing like the quality of their previous years amazing videos. Be sure to let them know on their FB page so they don't pull something like this again. Not scary, not spooky and not in the spirit of Halloween.

    I am seeing a huge trend in my area - black and white Halloween décor. I went to 3 stores so far and they are all doing black and white. It seems the rhyming sayings in different fonts, with a rustic frame is the trending thing for this year. And yes, I did buy it. I will have to post the photo in a few hours! :)

    I know, our target doesn't have any Halloween décor until after the first week of October. It takes them FOREVER to put it out. :( Maybe if we all write to target and tell them the Halloween merch has been kinda lame the last few years. The last five years I have seen the same table runners, cookie jars, skulls and tombstones every year. I have yet to see any kind of differences between what they are putting out. I am not even kidding. I wish I was. About 8 years ago - there was animated...

    That moon and black cat are on my wish list! I've ordered lots of things from VTC over the last few years and have always been very happy with everything I've purchased.

    I went to Home Goods yesterday and spent a small fortune. And now it looks like there's twice as much stuff out. Gonna have to go back cause I'm seeing a lot of new things I want. Sumrtym, I bought both the Pumpkin Patch and Costume Party wall hangings and they're both really nice. I'm also seeing several items that are repeats from last year and now I can't remember what I already bought last year. I may have to start unpacking the Halloween bins just to take inventory. Many thanks to...

    No photos but the tombstones are resin and are a substantial weight. They also have (depending on the style) some sort of battery-operated light feature. Light-up eyes and one design has light-up candles. I can't remember 100%, but I think the price might have been $39.99.

    I hit up two Tuesday Mornings today and bought that same wall hanging. I also bought a really cute lantern that has an owl print on burlap ($9.99). It can be hung on a wall or used as a stand-alone. I also posted in the Magazine thread about a really nice Halloween magazine I bought for only $1.99. Can't wait to go back in a few days to see if more merchandise is set out!

    Tuesday Morning often sells old issues of special edition magazines at a very discounted price. In the past I've picked up Christmas magazines, Paula Deen magazines, etc. Anyways, I was in TM this morning and bought a 2013 edition of a magazine called "Celebrate Halloween", a Hoffman Media Special. It contains a lot of recipes and a few party theme ideas. Lots of nice pictures. The original price was $9.99 but TM is selling them for $1.99. TM also had a few autumn themed entertaining...

    RCIAG - I bought that same wreath and that little "Happy Halloween" JOL this morning! I wanted the wreath last year but couldn't find it so I snapped it up today as soon as I saw it. I went to two Home Goods this morning and both had a lot of people shopping in the Halloween area. And they were all buying!
