I haven't seen a thread for Walmart for this year yet so figured I'd go ahead and start it. They have some really good deals right now with 2 day free shipping. Last night I picked up the Distortions Moving Monument and this scorched scarecrow guy.

They also had the spell speaking witch

and orange spot lights. I remember someone was looking for these on another thread but can't remember who.

Orange spots were mentioned in the Home Depot thread, but HD's amber lights seemed to be good enough. Also, Walmart's spotlights are more expensive than HDs?! Wow.

I was able to straighten out the " a" a tad after looking at this picture. As Ghost of Spookie mentioned in the GR thread they are hand bent so everyone may be just a tad different.

My palm reader sign arrived today. I really liked the GR colors but found this one for $44.67 here. Cheaper than I've seen it elsewhere and thought I'd see if I liked it. It is blue and red. Other than the color preference I really like it.

Cloe, I'm sure everyone is wondering if the sign's palm flashes like the more expensive GrandinRoad version. The Grandinroad one has a separate "short circuit" switch for the hand.

Love to see a photo of it lit up.

I posted a you tube link up above. A crappy phone video but it does show the effect.

So it is the same sign as GR's palm reader just different colors. Looks great and like the one I see in the psychic shop outside of town here. Thanks for the video.


8/4 Update: In case people skim through the thread and don't read everything, as mentioned in later posts here by -V-, it actually isn't the same. The more expensive GR one has a separate control for the hand (short circuit or steady) which apparently the blue and red palm reader sign doesn't. Here's the link to my GR post with photo of the switch: http://www.halloweenforum.com/general-halloween/172985-grandin-road-2017-a-34.html#post2186034 If you got a 30% discount off of it at GR you'd still be paying about $10 more for the switch and the purple/green color. But nice to know up front you have the choice. Surprised GR doesn't specificially advertise the switch on their site.

Well,shoot, now I can't remember how the GR one flashed! Guess I need to go back to the GR thread. Although I guess technically I could just wait til tomorrow when mine should be delivered!

Thanks for posting this Cloe! I like the colors on this one too.

It looks similar. I tried to get up close so you could see it.
Yeah, that stuff is expensive! This is why I chose not to make one myself as it would have cost twice as much as buying one! You all got a good deal. I see how you can fix the lettering a bit if it is messed up. You can just adjust the zip ties. That was a real good buy.

I also got the Palm Reader sign at Walmart.com and while it was a good deal--44.97 and they do Discover card deals for another 5% off--it does *not* have a switch to stop the flickering of the red hand, like the Grandin Road version (thanks for the pic, Ghost of Spookie). It flickers in the Gemmy 'short circuit' manner: it's steady, then flickers like it's failing, then goes dark, then comes back on steady.

The sign itself is sick, but ain't feelin the nonstop red flickering. It's irritating to me, in part because of the eye-catching red. It is certainly striking. I'm considering returning it and getting the GR one instead.

I never even looked for that as I like the short circuit effect of the hand. Mine was strictly a color choice. I wasn't quick enough to get my order in for the percentage and shipping that a couple on here got when they ordered before they ceased the Halloween items on their sitewide discounts. Shipping aside I decided for $35 less I think I'll keep this one. I think the flickering is more attention getting but as much as we rationalize our decorating for others it's really for us. If it drives you nuts I would definately get the GR one.
