Every year I make it a point to visit almost every place that is selling Halloween goods. You never know what you might find. As the years have passed I've found it more and more difficult to find things that work for my Halloween scene (meant in both senses). I visited Halloween City (here) the other day and here's what I found...
Many of the items on Halloween City's website cannot be found or seen at their stores which is a bummer since I like to look at props before I buy them.
Halloween City is very costume heavy, not a lot of props and I found that this year they had less props and decorations than in years past. Not sure what that means, but it was a bit of a disappointment.
I've found that to be true nearly everywhere. As I said, I am VERY particular about what I bring home.
It would be interesting (and fun) to be a part of a Halloween focus group directing stores in their Halloween purchases. After all these years I feel like I have a good eye for quality and what would work for a variety of haunt types.
Well...that's enough for tonight.
