    If you’ve ever searched hi and lo in your local stores for that one item that you absolutely need but can’t find, perhaps you can put your request here in this thread to see if anyone else can help find it for you. I know in the past we’ve had some very generous forumers who would help out a...
  2. General Halloween
    Free at last, free at last, thank *dietyofyourchoice* all mighty, we are free at last! No more holidays breathing down my neck for at least 8 more months! Is anyone relieved that Hallowthankmas has passed? I swear, I need an additional month between Halloween and Christmas. There is just not...

    I know the local Spirit Franchisees deal with alot of BS for a month and a half, but it's a shame they would just rather throw the displays away than make some extra $. Was in the store in the morning, bought some display animatronics and asked what they would do with the windmill, etc if they...
  4. Halloween Props
    I know we have posted about this in the past. Was doing my Day after shopping and came across this: Yes it is a crouching swaying Ghoul like other have built on here for the past two years and hallowen express now has it. Well i still plan on building my own that will last for years and...
  5. General Halloween
    A month or so ago I asked a sales person at the local Spirit if I could put up a flyer looking for haunt volunteers. She said OK . Came back last week after no response and was told District manager said Take it down. So I said "I guess Spirit wants our money but doesn't want to support the...

  7. General Halloween
    Another one I couldn't find so might as well start it. I went to a newly built DT yesterday hoping they might have a good chance at getting DVDs/Blu Rays vs the other DTs in my area (which never seem to get them in)...and they had a very VERY small stand near the front that had some of last...

  9. General Halloween
    Every year when all the stores (Halloween Express, Spirit Halloween) open up near us, the wife and I take an entire Saturday and go shopping. We hit all the stores also to include Menards, Home Depot, At Home, Nobbies, two theatrical shops, etc. We also do a really nice supper at Olive...
  10. General Halloween
    I am super new to this forum and have been browsing through last years UK Halloween thread, it seemed to be really useful for us haunters who don't have the abundance of Halloween stockists that our US friends might! I have not yet spotted a 2017 continuation so thought I would start one of my...
  11. General Halloween

Locally, we have a Michaels, At Home, TJ Maxx, Home Goods, Joanne Fabrics, 3 Kmarts, 3 Walmarts...
  12. General Halloween
    i couldn't find the previous thread. It's a crisp sunny day. I'm watching episode after episode of Sandra Lee's Semi-homemade Halloweens. She MUST be one of us! And she has great tips/tricks/treats that are easy and quick to do. Going pumpkin shopping later and having pumpkin pies for...
  13. General Halloween
    This will be my first year passing out treats and I'm at a bit of a loss of where I should be buying my candy. I'm getting married about 2 weeks before, so I don't have much of a budget. I'm already planning on giving out non-food treats for the Teal Pumpkin Project, but still want candy! Do any...
  14. General Halloween
    Was at an At Home store and saw two aisles of Halloween stuff already out! They weren't full, but they had some pretty good props up already. I was a bit sad because I missed the cooler weather and October fun, but saw these and immediately turned my frown upside down :D Totally made my Fourth...

  16. Halloween Props
    Okay I know several sites to go shopping at but I thought I'd ask where others do their shopping for anything Halloween related-parts, masks, props etc. I want to make a master list. Thanks everyone :)

    Halloween is just over 50 days away - so where are you at? I know what I'm going to do. I've drawn plans, made lists, sorted props and started shopping. But I haven't painted any signs or gravestones, put anything up or built/dressed any character dummies. How about you?
  18. General Halloween
    Hey folks! Looking for anyone that knows info for the montana area! I live in canada, but I'm only about an hour and twenty minutes from the border. The biggest shopping centers (american) near me would be white fish or great falls. Anyone know that area and know what is available for good...
  19. General Halloween
    I have been obsessing over Halloween all year long for the past years but this year I really want to hit all the stores I love that I can get too i.e., pottery barn, Walmart, target, homegoods, bed bath and beyond and Michaels. Walmart is very far for me but this year I am going to make it a...
  20. General Halloween
    I'm not sure how many plus size ladies are on the forum that like Nightmare Before Christmas, but the website www.Torrid.com has lots of NBC t-shirts and a really cute dress and jacket. They are having a black Friday sale where you can take 40% off, but its only for another 8 hours. I ordered...
