  3. Local Spirit Halloween - Not So Much Spirit

    General Halloween
    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...

    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. Dollar Tree 2018

    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. Shopping was just a bit of a disappointment this year!

    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. 2017 UK Halloween

    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...

  14. Best Candy Deals?

    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...

    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.

    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 :)

    General Halloween
    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?
