I did. It's pretty ho-hum thus far. I saw only some generic fall decor, Lemax stuff (good for whoever is a fan of those), and the bling junk (I'll admit, the bling skull bust is pretty cool), but nothing animated yet. Hopefully they'll get a couple of Gemmys in, I'm dying for one of those candelabras they had last year (I can't seem to find one anywhere)

Yep, same as mrhamilton. Although I am an avid Spooky Town collector, I was even disappointed in that. Very little selection and over inflated prices. A 50% off coupon is a must this year.

as a crazy lemax spookytown fan i am disappointed. from the lemax website it seems that some of the houses are not even available at michaels. when i first went and looked at the prices i was shocked that they skyrocketed from what they used to be. i mean usually the biggest and sweetest house is around 80-90 but now every house is almost in that price range. 50% off coupon or bust. the only 2 houses i really like are the house of wax and the pumpkin patch ride other then that im kinda sick of dry glutch houses and not really into the biker house or the phantom of the opera. The train is a cool idea that lemax did this year but its not even that big, it could maybe go around one house and a little accessory not a whole village and for 60 bux i could make my own haunted train. although i will say i do like the accessories more this year then last. i like the bowling lanes, monster truck, hearse, and some figures. as for non spookytown stuff i always love the potion bottles, and the bling skulls arent bad but not really too scary halloween for me. i had big hopes for this years spookytown as i thought it was suppose to be the best yet but was let down. i just signed up for michaels online to get the coupon for 50% off then go to michaels an pick up my house of wax and pumpkin ride for now then the accessories i like later. no idea where to put them in the village but if i dont grab them theyll be gone my luck.

The next Michaels seasonal truck is in two weeks. The planogram shows that they will be getting in their aisle of tombstones, etc but it doesn't show any lifesize Gemmy animations yet. Not sure if they will have them or not this year. According to the manager, they received complaints about them and the other scary Halloween decor they had last year.

Gimme a break.

Some people may not know this... but Hobby Lobby is a christian store and doesn't stock any Halloween other than "autumn" stuff due to the idea that Halloween is in some way evil/pagan and bad. :rolleyes:

I'm not particularly impressed with the Michaels theme this year - the "bling" stuff. I hope they do get some more interesting stuff in and I'm kicking myself for not getting several things from last year. :(

mine has a few autumn items, if they dont support my holidays, I wont support them , so I try to buy as little as possible from them, a funny story before I knew this I was about to bring them a Hajime Sorayama art print of a naked girl to be framed when they had a framing sale, I told a friend and hes like "Dont!"

My Michaels store had a huge shipment of foam pumpkins come in! The employee I talked with said that most of the "BIG" stuff won't arrive until the first week in August.

Just saw a Michaels 50% off coupons offered on Freecycle. Have to be used by today, and I can't make it. Darn.
If you sign up at Dedicated To Lemax, you will find a post I made with a current 50% off Michaels coupon good until July 30th.

Dedicated To Lemax

Just a special note that the sign in information at Dedicated To Lemax is done only to prevent spammers.

Also, since there is no Michaels sales ad this week you will be able to use the 50% off coupons on the Lemax Spookytown houses and accessories.

Hope this helps !

The next Michaels Seasonal truck which will be the week of July 27th. will have some of the Halloween props like the lights, tombstones, etc. They will be filling up the aisle across from the Lemax Spookytown with the Halloween decorations.

No news yet on whether or not they will have any of the lifesize Gemmy figures. I sure hope they do !

I have not had good life experiences with baptists, especially southern baptists. They are the most closed minded self righteous people I have met.

We stopped by one here in Pittsburgh yesterday. they had all of the "bling" stuff out, a ton of Lemax, and some other generic decorations. the employee I asked didn't know when anything else was coming in, but it looked as though they were clearing the main aisle, so I am assuming it will be soon. I am hoping the have those resin tomstones again (in different styles than they had last year) anyways. :rolleyes:
