My other ride is a Ninja
i am excited i got the typewriter for 50 percent off can not wait for it to get here this week
In case you missed mrincredibletou's post, check to make sure the HELP keys spell it out in that order not PLEH. They ending up sent 2 units back due to both of them typing the message in the wrong order. Great deal if you get a good one. Fingers crossed for you. I think it's one of the most unique props this year they had and really love mine. I see it's pulled from the website now.i am excited i got the typewriter for 50 percent off can not wait for it to get here this week

Nice buys on the dogs guys! They were holding on to that retail price on Sasha and I wasn't sure she'd go on sale this year. Got mine last year from Kmart on a good sale since GR wasn't budging much on her then either. Apart from the dogs and the typewriter there wasn't a whole lot left on their site as far as the bigger items.
I got my 4 inch eyeball orbs today. The 3 inch ones arrived last week. I really like the look of them and like them way better than the Ross version I had seen in the store. Never did buy any of the Cracker Barrel ones. Actually I almost didn't order the orbs even at 50% off separately but glad I bought them when I did as they seem to be sold out now. Have to say I'm pretty happy with my GR items this year even though I wasn't overly excited by what was new.
Still have one more order I'm waiting for delivery. That's 2 of the standing and laying little mice. I liked the crouching ones so much wanted to add some friends. What are you guys still waiting on?
I like the hand. Sort of a neat paper weight?! Regarding the typewriter if you can I would take a short video of the "key" movement if you can and post it to a Flickr or whatever account where you can store it, then call them and tell them you got a defective one. Mention you like it, since you do, and you were wondering if they could give you some sort of a discount if you keep it since you see it's now sold out and can't exchange it. Offer to send a link to a video of it so they could see it's not right. If they agree, great. I recently posted on HF about a defective zombie farmer prop I bought from their sister company, Improvements Catalog (got mine on sale, although not 50%), and was nice about it with them on the phone and they gave me a person to contact and send photos of the issues. It was also sold out so I couldn't get an exchange. I got a prompt response back that they would issue me a credit and they did right a way. Like you I liked the prop enough to keep and work around the issues with it but honestly it's not a truly working prop so don't feel bad about asking for some adjustment. Can't hurt if you still want to keep it.I finally got my typewriter yesterday, and just as I thought I would, I got one that spells PLEH. But honestly, I'm ok with it! It's not like I could get them to send me a different one anyway since it's sold out.
I also received another prop from one of my other favorite stores, Design Toscano, to go with the typewriter.....which is this severed hand statue. It complements the typewriter perfectly!

Hi everyone! I just recently discovered halloween forum as well as grandin road. I got some great stuff from them, but missed out on some things I really wouldve loved to have! I wasn't expecting stuff to sell out so fast! I was wondering if they carry a lot of products over year to year? Thanks for any input.
