I was in Michaels a few days ago and they were doing deep clearance on Summer. I would imagine that at least the fall floral will be out soon.

Hehe... I couldn't help it. Was close to Micheals yesterday and had to peek in there just in case there might be something with a little fall flavor. Nothing, of course. But the spook in me had to satisfy it's curiosity.

I love their fall floral... last year they had gorgeous long stem roses with mesh and glitter. I got some black and purple ones and would love to find more. Also found white roses with blood spatter

This is my first year planning to do crafts for Halloween as opposed to store bought finished products...there is a Michael's somewhat nearby and I keep looking at the calendar every few weeks wondering if there might be a few things for me to start working with lol. Maybe a few more weeks?? :D

You can use those Cloches for everything! Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. I love them! Those look like some good prices on them $7.00? Also I think Hilda got the little mini chalkboard and painted it black and is using it for her Haunt Hotel! Those small chalkboards you can use on a buffet to write in what things are. I love them! Off to Michaels today!:D

I was in Michael's yesterday and they never disappoint in having items useful for a haunt.

Lots of different cloches, all 50 or 60 percent off.

These awesome resin chalkboard signs:

I used some of those cloches for lab specimens. (I did have to glue a little piece of wood to the chalkboard base first.)

Thanks Juli for the shout out. Just this week, I grabbed one of those ivory shabby chic chalkboard frames at 70% off, and gave it a makeover for on our concierge desk.
:) I'm tickled with it!

I don't know what's wrong with our local store-- no big $1.50 keys, cloches weren't marked down, no interesting nautical bottles, and no framed chalkboards.
I really wanted 3 of the chalkboards for the bar, to outline themed drink ingredients. It's not that they'll be signature drinks, but I know a number of guests won't be familiar with them, and it will save my bartender (older daughter) from having to explain over and over. I could make them from scratch (tombstone signs, maybe), but I have enough projects in my queue already.

Here's another idea, ooojen. My daughter and I have taken ornate picture frames, painted the cardboard inside with black chalkboard paint (from craft paint aisle at Michaels), and then wrote on those with chalk. We made signs for the buffet that way.

It's certainly possible I could have overlooked them, but our long checkout queue area has mostly candy and stuffed animals to entice kids (and hungry adults as they do have some quality chocolate along with more kid-oriented stuff.) The store I visited did have a couple of the jars with handles and the frosted colored ones, but when I say a few, I mean 2 of the former and 5 or so of the latter. They're always rather short of store personnel to ask.

Good idea, PiB, thanks! I'll check out second-hand places for a few frames.
