I tried searching but I couldn't find a 2014 thread - it's time for the UK Halloween Watch!

I thought of this because I was googling for decorations and noticed on the Matalan site, they have tombstones and some other decor:

http://www.matalan.co.uk/events/halloween?q=halloween

The individual tombstone is only £3 and looks a reasonable size which, as someone who is way too unskilled to make her own, is pretty awesome!

They've also got packs of 8 LED tealights for £4 but I'd say if you're after them, don't get them from Matalan - go to Poundland, they do packs of 3 for a quid. Failing that, the Range also do them for a similar price, and you can order online from them.

Speaking of the Range, they have some things on their website: http://www.therange.co.uk/search?as...Q-E11U-SW04-W3E0-5H80-WMFM&keywords=halloween

Technically Tesco do as well but it's in their Tesco Direct section and it's mainly kids costumes/makeup.

So, anyone else spotted anything? I can't wait for it to start coming in to shops, I'm just doing a classic halloween theme this year so I want all the spiderwebs and cauldrons I can get my hands on! :)

I'll keep an eye out up here in Wakefield - we have much the same shops though.

Sainsburys did have some solar powered lanterns that could be aged nicely - the storm type ones. I have been watching to see if they reduce the price even further. Presumably if they charge up during the day they would work at night?

I can't wait for the Poundlands and B&M's round here to get their stock, the nice thing about doing a very unspecific theme is that it's not very limiting and much cheaper!

Last year's was a pretty disappointing turnout other than Morrisons. Hopefully this year is a lot better - I'll snap a few pics when I see something!

Funny i feel like that, i think people must think im crazy !! especially the time i spend making things (generally all year lol) If we were in the USA it would be different it's much more widely appreciated there. Wouldn't it be great to have streets all done up and haunts to got to. :D. xx Do you buy things on E bay ?

Problem with eBay is people overcharging
Last year the range had some kicking witches a daft little prop that was £4.99

Looked on eBay a few days later at Halloween stuff and the same ones were being sold buy it now for £20.00

Wife has just come home from hospital after giving birth so my Halloween prep work has taken a back seat for now
