What to search for at yard sales....

3482 15
Need to start searching thru the yard sales to find good props for the halloween party this year. Besides the obvious, what sort of things are good to find to make props out of? What have you all bought at yard sales to use as props/builds? If you have pics, please post them too.

I just don't want to not buy something that might be great because I hadn't thought of it...

Well we dont have yard sales here but at second hand stores we are always on the look out for motorized things we can hack and use for props....examples would be singing reindeers, santas, christmas trees etc. Candle holders/stands, wig heads, robes, wedding dresses, fabrics, old laterns, etc.
Last great finds that I came across were an old pump organ and a bird cage.

Motors can also come from can openers, microwaves, blenders, almost any kitchen appliance!
