They're Back! Gemmy's Big Mouth Bill Bass singing fish has returned to the shelves. Planning a Toxic Spill scene? Add one or two of these to your "stream bed" after you've cut the speaker wires so they just wiggle back and forth gasping for air when motion triggered (and you don't have to listen to the singing).

The store we stopped in had these on sale for 16.74 right now. Probably cheaper than e bay, especially if you don't have to pay shipping. If you are signed up for CVS' emails watch for their 20-25% off coupons or wait until end of summer season and hope to catch a few left on clearance before they are sold out or pulled for the season. Definitely use your CVS rewards card when you buy something there so you keep getting their emails and coupons come halloween shopping time for their props.

Those of you new to shopping at CVS for Halloween should check out the 2014 CVS thread to see all the great buys they had last year. The best full-size Headless Horseman prop was one of those items. They have a great Buyer working for them who really enjoys halloween and tries to find cool items to lure us in! Signing up for their rewards card and emails could save you a pretty good chunk of money. Sure other members here will attest to that. Here's a few links to wet your appetite and expand your halloween shopping:

The store I was in was only starting to put out their garden statues so unfortunately no real pictures yet of items for your cemetery.

Great paint job on the Bass, Hilda. I love the addition of the monster teeth too.

I see you replaced the label. What does it say?
Thanks! I got a little carried away with the top row of teeth, and couldn't really fit a bottom row. Still funny when it moves the teeth. Bwainzzzzzzz

The label says... piscis pygocentrus salmoides immortui 1802
Basically it is a fish. Mother was a piranha. Father was a large mouth bass. It's undead since 1802. LOL

Anyone know when CVS will begin putting out the Halloween stuff? Got a 25% off entire purchase coupon in the mail but it's only good until the 18th.

My guess is not until mid-August or closer to Sept. in some places. I know mine won't do anything until after school starts which is the last week of August so for me I won't see CVS do Halloween probably until Labor Day.

I can't wait....the woman who does the buying for the store joined the forum last year and said this years items would be even greater. If you are out there lurking...how about a sneek peak for us haunters PLEASE :)
After seeing all the new items at other stores I am afraid I may be buying things I could get at CVS instead IF they would stock sooner!

I got some great things at CVS last year. That was the first year I had ever thought to look for Halloween items. However, they didn't put on sale until about 5 days after Halloween. Not sure if they are run independently or governed by a headquarters but very late for putting stuff on sale.
