So I headed out this morning to grab a couple odds and ends for christmas presents. I headed over to our Crafts Direct and wandered into the clearance store to grab a couple of stocking stuffers.
I sat in the scrap booking aisle, eyes glazed over, trying to figure out what my wife would use and what she would mock. I rounded the corner, and there it was, a blurred glint of orange way in the back near the restrooms. I immediatley forgot why I was there and started to walk quickly, almost running, towards this beacon of orange. And thats when it it hit me: "Holy Crap! They still have halloween decorations!!!! Two full aisles!"
There wasnt any super impressive stuff like people snagged at Big Lots this year, but they had a few gems mixed in with the crafty stuff. Being that it was marked down 70%, then another 30% off that price at the checkout, it was very hard to pass by on. I walked away with 3 halloween platers, a minature hanging goul, a couple minature sitting skeletons, and 4 rubber bats. All for about $5.
So this year it looks like Jack Skellington will also be coming down the chimney! Can't wait to see the look on my wifes face, Christmas morning, when she see what I have done.
