    When i went to the local Hobby Lobby story about week and half ago they had the fall / Halloween stuff spurting around. This seemed little latter than the past few years for me which made me little sad. Thinking about heading down Saturday to take some pictures since didn't bring my phone with me.

    At Home always typically starts putting stuff out in July. Before I moved to northern va, my old store in NC had MOST everything out by July 4th weekend. The one up here in Chantilly was really late and when they did put things out it wasn't put up with much care and really didn't look great. I miss my old At Home lol.

    But like another poster said, they do have a few new Halloween items online! They seem to have an oil slick theme going on which I'm REALLY digging. There's an oil slick crystal ball and a black skull with an oil slick candle on top. Can't wait to see them in person!

    Also, I realize this is off topic for this thread, but Cracker Barrel typically starts getting stuff out early July as well.

    I can never remember from one year to the next when stuff starts showing up. I did go to Michaels earlier today just to see. They had 4th of July stuff and the summer stuff out still. Of course Hobby Lobby is closed on Sunday so I couldn't go see what kind of fall stuff they had out, but I hardly ever shop there any way. There is a mall on the way where they put the Spirit store and I was hoping to see the "opening soon" banner, but no luck. They probably won't put even the banner up until some time in July, but like I said my memory for that isn't great.

    So far, as far as I've been keeping track of this stuff for the last few years, this year has been pretty much on par with last year.

    We're only a month or so from when Spirit starts to seed out their storefront rentals.

    Hobby Lobby is always early with the autumn stuff, with Christmas stuff coming out pretty much at the same time. I stopped by Hobby Lobby last night and their Autumn aisles are pretty much filled out. No Halloween to speak of, but most of their autumn goods are there. They expanded some of their Christmas offerings from a few weeks ago when last I stopped.

    I went to At Home earlier this week and nothing thats on their website is available yet. They're still steeped in summer mode.

    Our local Michaels usually gets things going after the 4th of July. Then a few weeks after that, the pumpkin spice begins to flow....

    Speaking of pumpkin spice...I made some beard wax a while back that I really like. I was going to buy some but I refuse to pay $10 or more for a couple of ounces for something I can make. I was putting some on this morning and thought I might want to make some that is scented with cinnamon oil and other fall scents.

    Over the last three years, only one Spirit store near me ever even opens in August. Generally they are early to mid-September. I once talked with a former member of Spirit management and it is the short window they are open that is the key to their success: they don't have to pay salaries to ee's during slow periods.

    I refuse to shop at that horrible place.

    I need to start checking our At Home and Michaels soon.

    I'm going to be on a really tight budget this year tho. :-/

    Same here lilibat! I've got to figure out if I want to invest in a 3d printer. I can then make my own village pieces and/or pumpkins as well....
