If you’ve shopped at any store lately, you’ve probably noticed the Halloween stuff. A giant 10 foot tall pumpkin head blow up doll is kind of hard to miss, after all. Yesterday was the first day of autumn in the northern hemisphere. Soon, it will be October and Halloween season. My favorite time of the year! Give me a good Halloween over any other holiday and I’m a happy camper. There are a couple stores I always hit when they get their Halloween stuff up and Target is one of them.
The promised land. There is more stuff to the right of this photo.
Target has a lot of bright, colorful Dead of the Day stuff this year. Perfect for a less scary Halloween party.
A selection of hanging decorations. I’ll have some videos of the animated and electronic stuff up Saturday.
For your witching needs.
A lot of skeletons. Notice the cat and wiener dog skeletons on the bottom shelf.
Hanging decorations and tombstones.
Note the alligator skulls, light up Beware signs, and more cat skeletons.
Orange and black wreaths and creepy black owls.
10 foot tall pumpkin head blow up doll; because every Halloween yard display needs one.
There was a whole row of lights and lighted figures like those on the top shelf. There was even a nice selection of LED battery operated lights; perfect of lighting up a fake pumpkin without worrying about setting it on fire. (Psst! LED lights are cool to the touch.)
Potion bottles and creepy radios and gramophones.
Orange and black party supplies.
Close up of the cute hanging decorations.
And, of course, lots and lots of candy.
When I was a kid, candy companies put out special candy for Halloween. They were Halloween shapes and were in decorated wrappers. You felt like you were getting something special and awesome because it was different. You knew you were getting Halloween candy. Now it’s just regular bags of candy that you could find all year long. It’s very disappointing.
There are a few hold outs but they are hard to find. Dove had milk chocolate eyeballs and dark chocolate pumpkins.
And, of course, Reese’s pumpkin shapes.
I plan to hit a few other stores and see what they have to offer. Party City usually has some nice stuff. Home Good will have some fancier pieces. Spirit and Halloween City aren’t open in my area yet but I’ll definetly be header there when they do open. Michael’s, Jo Ann’s, and Hobby Lobby always have Halloween decorations and crafty stuff. Eeee! I can’t wait to see what everyone has!
Have you found an awesome Halloween decoration?
