I use black felt and then add leaves, moss, whatever, depending on the area.
I've decided this year I want to start a Spookytown collection. I never made it to Michaels for after season sales so I guess i'll be starting with the fresh lot!
Excited to buy my first...would love to know which ones you guys started with.
Lemax does all of their announcing in March typically, yes?
is there a discount at any online sites on 2015 items before the 2016 comes out?
My first piece was Greaves Manor from back in 2000.
Shadowbat - I've seen your videos on Youtube of your Spookytown display. Very impressive
Unfortuante that your cat was starting to mess with it. I may run into a similair issue as one of my bigger displays is on my tv stand that is about 2 ft high (tv is mounted to wall), and have a 5 month old who will be 14mo by next October and it will be within reach. May have to figure something out.
Oh man, I can lose hours browsing that site. Not sure if it's the one you mean, but this looks awesome: America's Most Haunted
This is pretty cool too: Stalking Dead Country
Am also in love with Burton's Carousel - dang I wish I'd win the lottery.
One of the "insiders" on the tiny village group facebook alluded to the fact she knew what was coming but couldn't say anything (hate those kind of "neener, neener!" posts and implied that early April was when we'd see it.
The Lemax 2016 Spookytown Collection is getting revealed this Friday, April 1. Sounds like they put the youtube videos up today and a few people saw them before they made them hidden. Sounds like one building has flying ghosts!
Only a couple days to wait, at least.
Thanks Shadowbat, I looked them up and I've found some good stuff. I'm building a permanent display table for them this year with a back to hang a background.
So I'm scouting my new pieces this year and I'd really love to nab that Ghost Containment Unit (lights are freaking cool!) but I can't really figure out what the heck it would go with. Did they make any specific accessories for that piece?

This pic was show off on a facebook group. I guess its from some kind of ad Lemax recently did. That house hasn't been announced yet to my knowledge and looks like a Swamp style getup. I really like it. I'm guessing that's the swamp piece that some who saw the 2016 Lemax Release Day videos early claim they saw before everything was pulled down. The alien lights as well.
