    I think the one in Frederick will be open first but I'll keep my eyes & ears open for other Marylanders.

    Even later in May is still too early for me.

    I'll have to go check on my nearby craft stores to see if they have autumn stuff yet. I'm getting married in October and want to use a lot of autumn decorations, but I'm having a hard time picturing how it would all look. It would be nice to get started soon on putting that together!

    Our At Home put Halloween out in July last year. It was fun to go in and browse. Michaels will put Spooky town up towards the end of July as well so it's not far off. As far as autumnal stuff showing up now, many crafters make things now for sale at summer shows.

    Our At Home starts in July as well. I went there a week ago for some other things (and also to see if I would get lucky with some early Halloween items), but nothing yet. We're almost there, though!

    I did however see this super awesome set up at Walmart. All the movies were pretty cheap and some had these cool glow-in-the-dark boxes. I bought 9 and Killer Klowns from Outer Space.

    Well, they may start stocking the stores in July, but at the moment, there are a few teaser items on sale on their website!

    Let us know when they start their Christmas creep because I'd bet it's in just a few weeks.
    I'm in TN and my local Hob Lob's are doing Christmas, the plastic containers of balls, floral pics, and a few Santa's and ribbon were on the shelf Saturday but they had 6 rows cleared and ready to put all the other stuff up. I'm sure those 6 rows will be covered with Christmas this week. The fall is there too, its in several rows at the front of the store with 2 rows of 4th of July , the Christmas is farther back with the 6 rows so far....it's all a little early for me.

    Hey......we ALL obviously LOVE Halloween.....BUT.....can't we just enjoy the Seasons, as they come and go, without jumping ahead 6 Months into the Future.... with every Profit margin to be made, in the Retailers minds?
    It just Spoils our Seasons, and the Build up to each event, when the Stores start to put out Christmas Stuff and Halloween Stuff.....in the First week of "JUNE"!
    For us, the Fun part is.....doing our own kind of Shopping..... at all the Yard Sales or while browsing on Craigslist, for the things that we might like to add to our Haunts......some where down the road, or at our own discretion.
    When you see the Stuff out in the Stores...6 Months prior to an event...it just RINGS ...."LOUD and CLEAR" to the Greedy side of the Holidays, when it comes to the Stores out there.
    Flooding the Stores with Halloween stuff on the First of September......would make things...so much more Exciting for everyone.
    Same holds true for Christmas.........Swamp the stores with Christmas Stuff.....on the First of November and watch the Stores pack them all in!
    As it is now......all the Halloween stuff is SOLD OUT......come October, and all the Christmas Stuff is all gone by the end of November.
    It just makes the Seasons......that much less Fun....for everyone.
    Having said all of that.......YES.....it is only May the 28th.....and we are working on our Haunt ....already! LOL
    I guess I am a being, a bit of a Hypocrite? LOL

    Yeah Myra it's a tough line to walk isn't it? We want it early to get a decent head start on crafting & creating stuff but not too early that it ruins it all I guess.

    For the "normals" August is too early for Halloween where for us it's late!! I've been in Homegoods in August when they put out some Halloween stuff & I hear people complaining about it while I'm all "WOOHOO!! FIRSTIES ON ALL THE STUFF!!"
