  3. WTB monk/druid robes

    Wanted to Buy
    Looking for a few nice hooded monk/druid robes for this year's haunt. Can be brown or black, must have hoods. The Halloween stores sell a lot of cheap ones so those might work but something a bit heavier/nicer would also be considered. Let me know if you have anything you'd part with, how much...
  4. Thrift Store Finds?

    General Halloween
    I'm relatively new on the forum, and have been on a bit of a thrift store kick here of late. I haven't (as yet) found any really exceptional Halloween/horror sorts of deals during the off season, but I think a lot of it comes from one's mindset, and how creative a person can get with things for...

  8. Places to get free styrofoam

    General Halloween
    So most of us are always on the look out for free or really inexpensive material for making our props.

  9. A trip to Target - Crowd Levels

    General Halloween
    I was surprised. There were A LOT of people in the Halloween section, most displays and decorations were gone. There was candy left but even that was getting smaller in supply. I did grab 2 bags of backup candy *Butterfingers and Nestle Crunch* that were $2.66 a piece or 3/$8. I bought 2...
  10. Electronic/Software: Skeleton tree lunger

    Halloween Props
    Hello, I recently bought this Halloween skeleton tree lunger from Big Lots. It has a motion and sound activation function, but does not seem to be working for me. There is a try me button attached to it and that works quite well. I was wondering if anyone knew how I might be able to extend the...
  11. Best times to shop certain stores for Halloween for max discounts?

    General Halloween
    I am curious if there is a guide for the perfect time to hit the 50%+ discounts for many of the stores. I always hit Spirit November 1st. But what about places like Michael's which is sold out by Nov 1st, or Kirkland, or the big box stores? When are those perfect times without having to drive to...

    General Halloween
    Hi all! I've lurked here for years and just really started collecting what I need for doing my own home haunt. One thing I've noticed is it takes a lot of research and going through old posts to find what I am looking for to accomplish certain things or find certain items or sales. I've...
