I know exactly what you mean. I have been checking all the stores around me since late July and finally this week some stores put out Halloween. It was already picked over by the time I was there this weekend. It's like they know when your not going to be there so they but everything up and everyone else buys up the good stuff. I have been checking World Market almost every week and no sign of Halloween. It seems that they finally got it up.ARG! Of course they put out their Halloween stuff right after I was just up there the weekend before! ...and of course some of it just so happens to be vintage style, which I totally love. Sigh... Maybe there will be some left over the next time I can go out of town and get up there...
Thanks for posting, though!!!
