Helloooooooo o o o o ooo guys and ghouls

Its my first day back here - ive been trying to resist coming here till now so that i didnt get too excited - but a convo with OMGDAN the other day has spurred me to post.

any ways....

I thought this would be a good time for all us UK halloween fans to share any sightings on props, dress and anything halloweeny in and around our stores.

I have been checking daily for the last week or so fo any news on Asda, sainsburys and tesco stock for this year, but no luck so far.

So share what you have found, any anything you have made.... lets get it on!

Just like you, I havent spotted a damn thing yet!
Saw on my Facebook that the costume shop in the next town is getting their stock in this or next week though, so I suppose that could get the ball rolling for other to follow suit!

thanks Grotbags! I like their stock usually(and Poundworld), so fingers crossed for them to get a good haul in this year. Got a busy schedule in the next few days, so it'll prob be next weekend by the time I get to have a browse around

Nothing in and around the Black Country yet, to be honest i have tended to move away from the usual stuff from the stores, i made some great props last year with the help of the tutorials on this forum and now i have two new props on the go for this year, just finishing a trash can trauma using a great compressor from aldi and scored an old rocking chair on ebay last night, going to try and make it rock using a wiper motor and put a stuffed dummy or skeleton on it.

The Range have a dedicated Halloween area as I was told by a family member. I'll have to pay a visit.

Wilkinsons have added their Halloween items back on thier site. Most items say "back soon". Hopefully a few new pieces this year. Edit: They have a Skull Fogger for £15 and animated Frankenstein Head for £14 also, I think they are new to their store this year (?).

I'm mainly excited to see what ASDA and TK Maxx will offer this year. (Would be nice to see a large prop again.)
Sainsbury's made an effort last year with Albert the butler, so will keep an eye out for them too. :)

Yes they are all starting to put stuff out, went into poundworld today at Walsall, not poundland! they had a huge selection out, stuff i hadn't seen before, some great little items for a quid, i got two orange 6 led pumpkin lights, it says strobe lights on the pack but they are not, but still worth the money, no big items obviously but some cracking stuff, if there is a poundworld in your area defo worth a look.
