I love craft and hobby stores. Not just because of what they sell. But because they start selling it sooner than everyone else.
Crafters (and haunters are crafters) need to start building early in the season, so hobby stores always start stocking Halloween merchandise early. And Michael’s is one of my favorite hobby stores
Lets take a look!
Of course, there are the basic Gothic Decorations. A bit too much bling for my tastes, but not bad.
These miniature coffins are only a buck and can be decorated in any number of ways. Look for a future post for some of the cool things that others have done to these.
I haven’t seen these resin skulls and skelly hands before. They look paintable for some interesting paperweight or just to grace the top of your desk.
Of course, there are the Funkins carvable foam pumpkins. These are what I use those ubiquitous 40%-off Michael’s coupons for every year.
And finally, there is the new season of Spooky Hollow.
Love those zombie ground breakers! And the wings on the statue actually move!
So if you have a Michael’s near you, they are probably stocked up for the season.
ScreaminScott say’s dig it up!
