Where to Buy Halloween Merchandise

I was out on the town this weekend, and I was happy to see that so many stores are already putting out their Halloween items!  Spirit Halloween and Halloween Express have still not opened their doors for the season yet (at least not here), and Walmart and Target are still peddling school supplies, but never fear!  You can  satisfy your Halloween shopping fix by visiting the following stores:

Hobby Lobby: They might not have a lot of truly creepy items, but if you’re looking for cutesy stuff, Hobby Lobby has you covered.

Michaels: My favorite thing about Michael’s Halloween merchandise is their cool Spookytown Village miniatures.  Minis make me happy.  Plus, Michael’s also has a lot of cool small props, decorative items, and craft supplies.

JoAnn: I love JoAnn’s skeleton animals.  This year they have two different kinds of dogs, cats, owls, and vultures.

Kirkland’s:  This is another one that doesn’t have any really creepy stuff, but, like Hobby Lobby, if you want cutesy, Kirkland’s has it.

TJ Maxx: Skulls, skulls, skulls.  I love the variety of decorative skulls and skeletons TJ Maxx has.  Check out my review of their 2016 merchandise here!

Home Goods: They have some similar stuff to TJ Maxx, which makes sense seeing as they have the same parent company, but check it out anyway even if you have both in your town.

Well, that’s it for now.  I’m slowly working on reviewing all of the merchandise at each of these stores, so I’ll post them as I finish them.  My favorite so far has been Michael’s.  I’ll post some pics soon.

2016 Halloween Merchandise Review: TJ Maxx

As I’ve been saying, Halloween is approaching fast, and with the swift approach of our favorite holiday comes the arrival of Halloween merchandise.


As usual, TJ Maxx is one of the first to put out their Halloween products for the year, and since I went there this weekend, I thought I’d snap a few pics.  Just look at all the goodies!


One thing I really like at TJ Maxx is their selection of metal jack o’lanterns.  These always look classy, and I like that you can use them  with whatever theme you want.  Just dress them up with flowers for a cutesy Halloween (not my preference, but whatever) or just put them with your creepy stuff.  They’ll fit right in.


They also had a few cute Day of the Dead skulls in the mix.  They’re just so festive.


There was also a selection of orange and pumpkin-themed decorations found at another part of the store.


This was probably my favorite item.  You can’t see from this pic, but the jack o’lantern’s head is actually a candleholder.  I’ll probably be picking up this guy before all is said and done.


This was also one of my favorites.  It’s two skeletons carrying a plate.  I think it’s meant to be used as a candleholder, but I thought it would be cool to put a few treats on it for your Halloween party food spread.  The large faux-stone skull to the right of it is pretty awesome, and I also love the skull and crossbones candleholder to the left.



I thought TJ Maxx had a pretty good selection this year.  They always have a large amount of skull-themed items, so I enjoy looking at their stuff each Halloween.  If you’re looking for actual props, they probably won’t fulfill your needs, but if you’re looking for purely decorative items, you should check TJ Maxx out.

One last thing I’ll talk about is this fun little phone I played around with for awhile.  I’m worse than a kid with this stuff.  (Sorry for the weird video format!)
