I don't think i've ever been in a BBB during the Halloween season...do they carry a lot of stuff in store? I saw all of the same Fiesta dinnerware online last year and while some of it's cute, I thought it was overpriced. It would take quite some time to get a whole set when trying to use their 20% off coupons! LOL
If it's a Fiestaware mug, yes it probably would be $20. Fiestaware is collectable so people will pay that much for one mug.
What's really crazy is $90 for set of JOL Moscow Mule mugs! Even with their 20% off coupons that's still too rich for my blood. I'd rather spend that money on stuff for ToTers or just about anything else.
Now that I think about it I don't think I've ever been in a BBB store at Halloween either. I tend to order online with them a lot because it's the one place we can get Tassimo coffee. We got a free Tassimo & it's one of the few places that carries the stuff plus it's free shipping on it so when we get close I just order more. I've got a couple close enough to drive but if I order early enough I don't have to bother going to them.
But I was in one on Friday to get a step stool & got sucked into the kitchen gadget section which is like a black hole for me. If I had room, all the money in the world & a big enough kitchen I'd buy every dang one of those silly little things. As it was I only bought a cookie scoop with a silicone bottom that you could push out.
Though thanks to thread I am reminded that I want some new non-Halloween Fiestaware. So THANKS Patch_of_Pumpkins!!
Last year was nothing spectacular. The year before that I bought a witch shoe mug for like 8 bucks. Some years are way better than others and the prices are oddly high which I didn't notice cuz I didn't want anything
I love my Fiestaware but I want some new colors. Thankfully there's only 2 of us so I don't need all the extra stuff, just some dinner plates, bowls, smaller plates & no cups. Their mugs are too heavy for me.
So, we had somebody do a photo shoot in front of our castle facade/archway thingy yesterday. I'm cool with it, mostly, but I wanted to get y'alls thoughts on this. Here are some of mine, and some details along the way:
1) I would be totally cool if this was a mom or dad taking some pics of...
Have you ever scared yourself or gotten spooked in your own haunt?
There's been several times when I've gone into the garage and feel a bit creeped out walking through. I'm always expecting one of my family has moved a prop so it's in my face as I round the corner (they are always trying to...
