It is hard this time of year to not go completely bananas once all the cool Halloween stuff starts hitting the shelves. I have become pretty savvy and the style in which I decorate much more defined over the many, many years of adding on new things.
Northern California doesn't have a year-round Halloween store unlike Southern California's Halloween Club (here).
I often wonder if the Bay Area could/would support a place that sells Halloween items all year long.
What has surprised me a great deal is the arrival of Christmas items IN SEPTEMBER. I mean, really retailers...SEPTEMBER?
