Never trash anything another haunter might give a good home to!I have the exact same dilemma! I had a pirate party in the summer, and put some effort into the cannon. I used it briefly in October for a front yard pirate skeleton invasion. (I do some shifting stuff around as a lead-up to the real Halloween decorating.) Now the darn thing has to be stored, and it takes up a lot of space. I can't yet bear to trash it, though.
