Probably got some of you guys excited thinking stuff was in, lol. I might be wrong, but I believe they do get items over the summer, and we're pretty close to July. If anyone has an early sighting, please let us know. We have 2 stores nearby so I'll be out there in the trenches as well.

For the past several years Big Lots has had a metal Fortune Teller sign that looks like a Ouija Board. I almost bought it last year because it was cool and I knew I would want it at some point. I passed on it and now want/need it this year. I so hope they have it and haven't discontinued it!!! If anyone sees it please post so I can RUN to Big Lots in the town next to us since we don't have one.

That is how it always seems to go...:rolleyes: I cannot recall seeing that sign, but it sounds phenomenal. If Big Lots does not get it back in, Five Below has a $5 ouija board, named 'Wee-Ji', that would surely be cheap enough to justify making a sign out of;)

I want to say that BL stocked Halloween merchandise by August last year.

Five Below is pretty cool! Last year they carried Illusive Concept's Floating Witch and Floating Headless Ghost props. Everything in the store is $5 or less, and those things sell on eBay for $40+. I've seen the witch listed at $99. I think that's excessive, but I do think that they were worth more than $5!

I bought the ghost last year, and wish I'd have gone ahead and gotten the witch too. When we went back, they were gone, and they'd had a bunch when we were there!

This is the headless ghost:

Here is a better shot of the ghost from a seller's site--note price!

I love my ghost from $5 Below. :) He looks great in your cemetary LairMistress. He still reminds me of a Haunted Mansion figure.

I hope Big Lots gets some interesting halloween in. As for repeats, I remember that Forunte Teller sign printersdevil and in fact had decided to look for it last year near the end of the season. Had been debating using it in my carnival theme. It was gone by then as well as the Bloody Mary Tarern sign I finally got around to going to pick up. They only had the Dracula Pub sign which I already had so was kicking myself. Sometimes repeat stock is OK.
