Well, I did end up seeing a few Fall-seasonal decor last year around this time, and then at the end of July and early August they started releasing their Halloween merch slowly but surely. I will share a few pics I took the other day of my local Michael's with what they currently have. I hope to see some more by this month's end.

Yup. The local stores seem to be just on the verge. The fall stuff is already out and it seems like some shelves have been set and filled with placeholders until the Halloween merch actually arrives.

Things seem to vary though. Used to be they'ed have Spooky Town out by the start of the second week of July. But I think there was a year or two where they didn't go full-on Halloween until the last week of the month.

I'm going to go ahead and change this thread's title to be the official 2017 Michaels sightings thread. :)

That's a grand idea! I've seen posts about a store called At Home, and then there's Costco, but sadly, where I live, neither of those two are anywhere nearby. Not even Spirit Halloween, although there are local Halloween stores which is good. Michael's definitely should have it's own thread for folks taking pictures. I will share a few more of what I took last year too just to help!

This one was taken around this time last year. Can't remember exact dates of the month, but close enough.

I kept the above picture because my local Michael's is beginning to put out their decorations, and it looks just like this again, oh yea!

The rest were taken through August (2016).
As cool as your pics from last year are, it might be confusing for anyone looking for this year. :D

We have sighting posts for the major stores that stock the "good" stuff for Halloween every year in the General Halloween section, always labeled with the year and the store name. They'll end up on the front page with some pretty crazy activity as the shelves get stocked up. Going forward, it is probably best to only post pics of this year for the store in question so as to not get anyone's hopes up about things being displayed or the status in general of the progress.

But post away if you see anything going on in your area store for 2017! :)

Okay, you're absolutely right, I edited my last post to only include one photo that looks the same this year too. Close enough I suppose lol

I don't know if all stores will have this item, but I just made my first Halloween purchase of the season at a S.F. bay area Michael's store...

This was with the floral arrangements/wreaths and the instant I laid eyes on her, I knew I needed her heh. Great personality and funky aspect you don't see often in the main stores, even if not classical Halloween graveyards/ghosts style.

That is actually a really nice fitting "plant" to go with it lol and the relaxing skelly in the background I'm jealous of, I can't relax worth a flip these days :rolleyes:

Just left Michaels on my lunch break and they're putting stuff out!!! I snagged up my mad pumpkin patch i've been wanting for 40% off and got a couple pictures! Looks like they're doing some neon signs as well!! The neon signs are $60 the same price as Target and others that we've seen so far.

No problem, thanks for the photos! That looks like the one Big Lots had last year and I'd love to pick a second one up. I'll check Michaels thanks to your heads up.

Just got back with my first carvable pumpkin of the season! :D
I had a one day only 50% off coupon so that worked out nicely. Hoping for lots more coupons in the coming weeks.
