2016 Halloween Merchadise Review: Gordman’s

Gordman’s has never been a big draw for me for Halloween merchandise because it usually only has the cutesier items just for decoration.  If you’re looking for just home decor items, you should check them out because they have a pretty good selection.  I was pleasantly surprised that they had an actual prop this year – even if it was a little overpriced.

It seems like there was more of a limited selection this year than for previous Halloweens, but they still had a pretty good mix of items:

They had some pretty cool pumpkins and jack o’ lanterns for general fall decorating.  I especially liked the black/white and gold variety two pics below:

A few items were less cute and more scary.  Check out these zombie and ghoul stand ups in the pic below.  They stood about 2 feet tall each, so they wouldn’t be considered a real prop, but they’re pretty cool.

As always, skeleton and skull items get my attention faster than anything else, so you can imagine that I kinda fell in love with this little guy.  I might catch him when I do my post-Halloween discount shopping.

Although I don’t like cute Halloween items as a general rule, I do love me a good countdown clock.  This one was pretty cool:

And as I said before, they actually had a full-size prop this year.  Check out this bad boy:

I got up close and personal with him to get a good pic of his face.  I really like the detail.

With the exception of the prop, everything was reasonably priced.  I’d compare the prices to TJ Maxx and Home Goods.  The prop itself was priced at a little over $200, which for a prop that only lights up and doesn’t move, is a little too much.
