There were some changes, but they still have good Halloween stuff out earlier than almost any other store outside the craft store industry. To find a store near you, check out the At Home store locator
I visited to see what goodies I could find, and I wasn’t disappointed. I really liked the collection of small animal skeletons, as un-realistic as they may be (Ears don’t have external bones, and spiders have EXOskeletons, not ENDOskeletons) But I digress….
Hobby Lobby arts and crafts stores have gotten an early start with the fall merchandise this year. Of special interest may be the Funkin brand foam pumpkins. They do seem to carry a higher price tag – $39.99 for a large pumpkin (ouch)! The Michael’s store brand was cheaper last year by 10 dollars, but I haven’t seen them yet this year.
Here are a few pictures from the Hobby Lobby seasonal aisles
Death has a hard job. Can you imagine wearing that long black cloak all the time, even in the summer? And try getting into elevators and taxicabs with that scythe! Not to mention the trouble when things go horribly, hilariously, wrong…
The question I’m most asked is “How do you make your tombstones?”
Actually, I’m most asked “Where do you store all this stuff?” (in the attic above the garage), and “Why does your wife put up with you?” (She loves me, as challenging as that may be). But a close third-place is people asking about the tombstones.
For the past few weeks, I’ve been pulling decorations out of the attic and trying to find time to put everything up before the big night. One of the first things to go up were the window decorations. Nothing particularly spooky about these, I just think they look cool. Black and orange are the traditional colors of Halloween, and I like having the entryway in these colors.
