Michael's

Picked up some supplies at Michael's Craft store this weekend and saw the pre-Halloween aisle already loaded with faux ornamental pumpkins, gourds, leaves, owls, and black crows. Needless to say, we were giddy. The manager said we could expect more in the next two weeks (I wished I had brought my camera).

Fantastic.

Rot said...

Seriously

We couldn't believe it. Orange coloring from the back of the store... Then Bean pointed to the pumpkins and crows (similar to the way Donald Sutherland did at the end of INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS). : D

Nev said...

Bahahaa!!
That scene frightened me as a kid, but I think I would have pulled it out as well. Time to keep those monthly specials for the next few months.

Yay!

Are they doing a pre-season sale, yet? I need Funkins!

Rot said...

No Funkins in sight unfortunately. Just small decorative (glittery) pumpkins. And some giant ones for fifty bucks ...HUGE. But just a few.

A great way to celebrate the first day of summer..a reminder that it will be fall again SOON!

JHMDF said...

Well damn... I need Funkins too! I will be there tomorrow none the less! Thanks Rot.

Grim said...

I must go check out my local Michael's today, for some reason I bet they don't have anything out yet.
It'll be exciting if they do though.

The Captain said...

We drove over (about 8 or 9 miles) forgetting that it was a Sunday evening and got there 20 minutes after they closed! :(

Don't people do crafty stuff on Sunday nights after 7pm?

I do! I'll stop by tonight again

Andrea said...

DUDE!!!! Thanks for the announcement. Isn't summer the best? Halloween starts to come out!

The Captain said...

I made it today. Mostly fall stuff and a lot of crows which I thought was odd, BUT in a basket out in the isle was a bunch of Funkins! Full price of course, I bought a small one.

Has anybody found the funkins yet? I got onto their website and they stated they weren't sellling any this year. I couldn't find any in stock anywhere either.
