Fred Meyer Halloween

Halloween inventory is going out earlier than usual with the back to school supplies. This blow mold black cat with glowing eyes was one of my favorite items.

The cheerful terra cotta pumpkins are starting to make an appearance.

A different take on the hands with an eye in the plam that has a color changing LED.

Promising collection this year. Looking forward to the towels and dishes.

More Lowe's

Love the old fashioned blow mold lights and this more serious looking pair.

Lowe's version of the giant skeleton is dressed as a mummy. That reminds me the giant skeletons from Home Depot were spotted on top shleves, still in pallet wrap, waiting to be stocked. Looks like my store has 6.

The flame tiki torches are back and the more sinister looking pumpkins. The mouth opening is a little too big on the tall pumpkins and you see the LED. If I wanted one more project I'd put diffusion or scrim behind the eyes, nose, and mouth.

Huge collection of Nightmare Before Christmas filling almost 2 giant sections.The carvable foam pumpkins are very spendy this year. Very happy I bought extra last year on sale!

Lowe's is selling Haunted Mansion Halloween quickly. The Madame Leota tombstone hubby sent me a photo of yesterday was sold out today. Can't find any of the merchandise on the website.

When you press the skull button it lights up and plays Grim Grinning Ghosts!

A lot of fun stuff this year. More pics tomorrow. The Haloween 2022 photo album is here.

My store had some great Katherine's Collection pieces like this pumpkin. Like all of the line it is spendy at $129.00 or it would have come home with me. This guy would be great in a shop window display.

Struggled with wanting to get the framed fairy. I behaved myself and didn't buy anything at HomeGoods today.

Love this table runner and Psychic Reading box.

More housewares out now at T.J.Maxx stores. The owl is from the Harvest Moon collection. Felted cutie pie and only $14.99.

Harder to find than the lap throws is full or queen size Halloween blankets. Finally found another queen size Halloween blanket!

Rugs! Dancing skeletons or a skeleton on his side with Trick or Treat. The biggest collection of Halloween bar and liquid hand soap seen so far. Bath bombs, aromatherapy scent packs, and diffuser's. Forgot to get a photo.

Michaels Tins-update

Update: Thanks to some wonderful friends I have Halloween tins in hand or en route! Thank you!

One of 3 tins at Michaels. I am searching for the other 2 in this set. If you find either of them can you leave a comment or message me? Will happily pay shipping and for your time.

Michaels has been a real rollercoatser. Items listed on the site as in stock at my store are not actually in the store. Items listed as sold out were on the shelf. It looks like some stores are getting the old fahsioned orange and black items and my store, so far, has only the Dark Romance and the Naturally Scary line.

World Market

The Halloween collection can be found here. The black cat bust looks promising.

The snake in pumpkin might be interesting. I'll reserve judment until they are actually out in stores.

The moths are a must have. Fingers crossed if they do not show up at my store they will eventually be stocked online.

Crate and Barrel

I wish there was a better photo of the ghosts with their lights on. The ghosts and the houses do make a cute tabeltop or mantel display.

The ghost table runner is adoable.

Plans and Radio Show

Taking photos of the faux pumpkins that haven't been carved. Picking them up at post Halloween sales, Goodwill, and garage sales. Ge...
