Great to see the shopping threads starting! Thank you GoS.
I really enjoy participating in them each year.

Although this is not specifically for Halloween. I did see these frames at TJ Maxx yesterday, I think it will make a PERFECT frame for a check-in sign on the front desk of a haunted hotel theme. It was only $4.99.
I am really excited with this find. :)

I think they would look good on a buffet as well.

That is a fantastic frame.

It is worth checking the section with the candleholders, since some types (footed hurricanes, metal candelabras, scrollwork candlesticks, etc.) would work perfectly with Gothic decor. Interesting paperweights turn up in the glassware/dinnerware section, which also houses various types of goblets and, at times, darker plates and bowls. Venetian masks pop up in the home decor portion throughout the year, and some of the other items that turn up are certainly worth a look (busts, statues, and so on). There was a dark lamp with a ram skull at the base the other month, so that area warrants searching at times. Now and then, the furniture portion receives stunning items with Victorian or Moroccan styling. Mirrors and wall hangings arrive that could work perfectly. Also, look while in line near the registers, as stunning items occasionally wind up near there, such as this crystal, frosted lion-faced votive holder, which was 1/5 the asking price ($3, as opposed to $15): http://www.godinger.com/new-arrivals/crystal-lion-votive.html. And, if anybody would like to have the original version of Annabelle present in their haunt, there are often Raggedy Ann dolls in the kids' section:D

Glad to see this thread, GOS. I didn't get photos of everything, but at Home Goods there is a section of "library" items. Lots of oddity or curiosity type décor for your study. A bust of a goat head, antlers, mounted wolf skull, shell specimens mounted on a stand, just lots of things, ranging in price from $16 - $40.



Above is the piece I bought. It was $19.99

Guess it wasn't too early to start this thread! Wow great items Hilda and PIB! Love them both and both were reasonably priced. Can't believe the stand frame was less than $5. I was down by HG today but didn't stop in and now wishing I had.

Perfect! That looks great!
I'll bet I saw this before on here and it stuck in my brain, because as soon as I saw the frame in the store, I knew that is exactly what it should be used for.
Thank you for sharing!

Kittyvibe, love your set up there. Looked like a photo from a high end boutique hotel and that lamp is gorgeous; the frame just fits in nicely.

thanks! I cant take the credit for the setup, I just thought the frame would look cool with my moms theme,(so I got it for her).

My mother takes all the credit for the setup. :) This was her theme last year, mine was clowns, hehe. It was the first time in a long time she made alot of her own props, like the elevator door. She really wanted that and wasnt sure she could pull it off, I gave a few suggestions and she took off with it and it came out sooo cool.

Went to HGs today and I didn't take a photo of this but saw a gryphon among their statutes/pottery items. It was maybe 14-16 inches tall (guessing here), kind of an upright rectangular form...sitting on it's haunches and with wings back. Nice piece. Thought it was maybe clay based with aging on it. Didn't catch a price tag. But they did have a whole slew of busts, lawn ornaments, statutes out on the floor.

I did look for the frame and the animal skull photod above but didn't see either.

I did take a photo of a shiny gold skull piggy bank (7.99) and a Nicole Miller Home (129.99) giant, 6-foot (at least) candelabra. Assume it was made of cast aluminium or something like that. Will come back and post photos later.

TJMaxx now has online shopping! I got an email this week and just bought some shoes. Just go to their site. Since its not really holiday time yet I have no clue if they'll have holiday stuff there but they do sell some decor there now. You won't find everything but it's a nice option. Maybe if it goes over well they'll expand it to Marshalls and Homegoods.

If you sign up for their emails you can get free shipping.

I received an email a few days ago too RCIAG. TUESDAY MORNING tried doing online sales a few years ago but it apparently didn't go over well enough and they pulled online shopping maybe a year ago. Maybe TJMaxx/Home Goods will have better luck. For whatever reason I got the impression it was going to be more linens and such that they get larger quanties of in the stores.

There's a few decor things there now, mostly beachy stuff (since it's that time of year), pillows (what is up with these stores & pillows), journals, & some picture frames, mirrors, etc., just not a ton of stuff yet but I plan on keeping an eye out.
