    What did you find/buy today?
    This last week, I got a few new decorations and was very proud of them. My newest finds include:

    Dead Eye Drake from Craigslist
    YouTube- Dead eye Drake the animatronic pirate SOLD

    A three dancing skeleton light set from Craigslist

    Animated metal light up penguin from a garage sale (which I can put a white sheet on and make a moving, glowing ghost out of)


    And finally..... Pumpkin seeds!




    So what did you just find?

    so how much did you pay for your pirate? he's very cool. and your penquin is real luck. i never would have thought of putting a sheet over it. that will be cute. and the penquin can be used for christmas as well. you got some very nice decorations there. you going to post a pic of the skelies?

    I have Drake too and love him. How the heck do so many people find these cool things on CL ? I search under Halloween decor and find nothing but candles and baby costumes. I've tried animated props and never found anything. The same with garage sales. Ok so whats the secret password to finding something cool.......

    I paid $50 for Drake. The jaw stays open when sound comes from him and there is a crack in the skull. I'm going to attempt to fix him.

    I just got a plastic garden owl for free thanks to CL again:



    And a free mini LED flashlight from Freight Hardware store

    Go me!

    $50 for the pirate is a real steal! Great buy on CL. I've pretty much given up on Craig's due to no luck with haunt items- only troll it occasionally.

    Not sure if this is a find or a buy, but what yard haunter wouldn't want a Lowe's gift card for Mother's Day? Just got one from my baby sister. She knows me so well Now I can go on the weekend for that rebar & pvc I need to start figuring out how to rig the floating ghosts in the yard so they really look to be floating. Thanks, Sis!

    I bought a projector for 99 bucks. Will get it around May 15th sometime around there. Going to cheat off of Mr. Chicken and make his Cystal ball prop.

    It's been a good couple of days for me! I bought a terrific five foot high vintage scythe that scares the heck out of me just looking at it (and which reminds me I need a tetanus booster shot and the phone number of a metalsmith who can dull the blade).

    I also bought a latex corpse/mummy prop for a song from someone who runs an amazing home haunt with an eye toward going pro. She was so friendly and encouraging while we swapped plans and I drooled over her amazing collection. I couldn't have had a better time!

    sid, i have a garden owl like that. i put it in a tree one year and it scared the heck out of my neighbor lady. she said she came out and caught a glimpse of it and froze. she is terrified of owls. after a few moments she realized it wasn't real. for a couple of days no squirrels would go in that tree. when they realized it wasn't real, they would push it out of the tree. now i just use it in my haunt. $50.00 for that pirate is sweet.
    blue frog, that is a cool mummy. i've never seen one like that before. i love his hands.
    deathtouch, looks like a nice projector. i wouldn't know what to do with one.
