Just got three of those for free just by asking for Halloween stuff at a garage sale.

Might have a lead for a life sized Frankenstein if this other seller pulls it out of storage and calls me.

....and that's it....oh except for one item...



A COUNTDOWN CLOCK! ...now if only it looked Halloweenish.

...if anybody else has any suggestions for some more random props feel free to send me a PM at some cool stuff to look into.

Also, just FYI, at LEAST one of these items will be going to someone when we do the Halloween swap this year.

I got the Frankenstein monster. He is 50" and green. He dances and sings "I will survive". He was a good find.

I posted a comment on another thread about this. I managed to secure a vintage Elvira 'Coors Light' Inflatable promo thingy. It still appears to be in near mint condition. I think the previous owner used tape in a few key places to help secure it. The tape is gone, but like I said, there's still a bit of sticky residue left over. I plan on using some 'goo gone' and that SHOULD do the trick...

Other than that it 's in great shape considering these things came out around '94 or '95. There's eve a plug on the bottom to add sand or water to help weigh it down. In addition, I intend to take extra extra special care to secure this treasure. I've had troubles in the past with anything inflatable, despite my best efforts. It gets VERRRRRRRY windy around here...

She has a one of those 'cube' cases of Coors Light in her 'hands' the case is 3-dimensional and actually has to be inflated separately as it has its' own plug. Since I don't want parents and neighbors to think I'm encouraging the TOTs to become alcoholics, I thought I'd use an old black lace shawl to cover the cube.

Then I thought that I might place something on top of it, like maybe one of those skull-shaped 'fog-misters'. the problem there may be in keeping it from falling off, depending on how heavy it is. I might have to settle for a blucky skull with some led lights inside it instead...

Anyway, I got it on e*bay a week ago, for about $50 bucks plus about$15 for shipping. This was very lucky,as the condition aside, these tend to spark fierce bidding wars whenever they appear. This is the only listing I've seen all year, like I said, I REALLY lucked out that no one else seemed to notice the auction...

I picked 20 foam pool noodles to beef up the arms and legs of the scarecrows I am building. Got for a buck each at the dollar store. They are seasonal and if you don't get them now you might miss out.

Thanks, hallorenescene. He threw in 3 pr. overalls/2 pr. work shoes (aka zombie gear) & sig other got a really nice Milwaukee drill w/bits .
We'll be helping him move with one of our rental trucks & some crew, so I guess it's more of a "buy 'n barter" deal :)
