    Party us over, downsizing, giving stuff away......
    Our 216 Witches Ball was Friday night, an awesome time.

    Party us over, downsizing, giving stuff away......-karen_1.jpg

    We had between 55-60 attending and some fantastic costumes....... and I am slowly putting stuff away now.

    I although in many of the years past, around Wednesday the week before the party, I would tell myself, exhausted, "this is it, the last one, this has become a monster".... this time I committed to myself that I will not do these "grand scale" productions again. My wife does help me moving stuff, but I am the creative one of us and because of who I am, I always have to do "at least as big as last year" . I just can't do "simple". That, and I am retiring in 2 months and am looking forward to removing stress from my life.

    With all of that being said, I am looking to get rid of at least half of my stuff. I am not looking to sell anything. But some of it is big and might be a little costly to ship. All of the Omenwood hotel and signage I want to get rid of. I also have lots of dyed/tattered clothes, old drapes and felts that we used to cover furniture. And I am going through my lighting and will be getting rid of some of that as well. I am in the MA/New England area, if anyone is in this area who wants this stuff, PM me.

    As I sort and re-store stuff the next few weeks, I will have better description of what I want to get rid of, and can post pics/lists. Just putting this out there now to gauge interest. I would really like to see this stuff go use rather than end up in a landfill somewhere, and again, I am not looking to sell anything.

    Hope everyone else's part went well!

    I'm interested and would make the drive. I loved your omniwood hotel setup. I will be anxiously awaiting pictures.
    I too am purging old themes. Nothing Halloween though. It's those other holidays and past crabfest themes.

    Good luck, once you retire you can really start to unwind. You need a hobby or come next year your party will become three times as big due to "all your free time"
    LOL

    I'd be interested in paying to have stuff shipped depending on what your collection of smaller items looks like. I'm just getting started on doing haunts and parties so could use all the decor I can get my hands on!

    John, we are running with a hotel theme in 2017. I'm not sure where you are located but I am potentially interested in your candle display, vintage props like the radio, phone and others. SENDING you a message.

    Thank you for everything. I've repacked and found safe spaces for everything but the paint can up lights. I placed them in back of hubbys closet. Let's see how long this takes for him to even notice. Lol

    Just baked the last of Gary's apples. I wouldn't mind making a trip back next year for the cortlands and his homemade honey.

    Wishing you a wonderful holiday ❤️
