Michaels Halloween 2018

We were really happy with this year's offerings from Michaels.  I'd say 80% of their stuff is out already, and it had a nice feel to it.  Not much glitter and there seemed to be more classic designs in the mix this year than previous years.  Hopefully this is a sign of the Halloween shopping season to come...

Bean snapped a bunch of great pics.

Hmmm, cool! Really digging the beetles and bug reliefs. Need to swing by there to get some paint today...

I gotta have the Trick or Treat sign! and man those beetles!

I wonder if my Michael’s has anything out yet. Sometimes it seems that the Lancaster area stores have a ban on Halloween stuff before the third week of September.

Just came back from Michael’s. Those beetles are tougher than they look.
Our Homegoods doesn’t have much out

Sara said...

Just went today and I had the best time looking at their new stuff. Can’t wait to add a few things to our collection!

Rot said...

cool.

our homegoods had some stuff out already.
Nothing too impressive yet.
I have high hopes for this year.

But there's always Walmart.

I agree with the Michael’s assessment. Considerably less glitter than last year. There is still time to devote a whole two aisles to it, but hope they keep the look they have. Those jacko faced cans look familiar... did you start another trend?

Sara said...

Wouldn’t know much about Walmart, sorry. Can’t help you out.

It is a good variety this year. Halloween is full price at Michaels so you can use coupons from their app or the JoAnn app.

AWWWWWW!!! SO MUCH Great!!!
THOSE Beetles are Fab. i can hear the clicking of their little legs..pushing dung balls around. Makes me wish for a Mummy Haunt with scarabs. & THOSE Flies!!!! totally make me want to watch Jeff Goldblum's The Fly..(Great Remake) AND..Oh how i would LOVE to see a Haunt/Homage dedicated to The Fly. Somebody out there must be doing one somewhere?!?! Gotta keep my feelers out. ZZZzZzZZ.

THE FLY

i wish i went out one year as the fly.. i'd have a small chalkboard around my neck that said "trick or treat"...

girl6 said...

HAHAHHA!!! Omg yes...the chalkboard. Brilliant.
& then this happened...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=14pIrRclWTY

so much possibility with a half man/half fly costume.

Rot said...

god, that is STILL so terrifying to ponder.

That definitely F'd me up as a kid.

And I like how they redid the voice...

I was really pleased with the vintage Halloween stuff. I was tired of the bling'd out glitter stuff.

Went with a friend to check out all the Halloween offerings that are out currently in the stores. We both felt the same as you, that Michael's really had some of their best offerings yet this year. Lots of really cool pieces with a vintage Halloween vibe.

We also both scored a fantastic music box/snowglobe at Homegoods, featuring a black cat with a stripey witch hat riding a broom! Cool Halloween merch, plus a new flick featuring Laurie Strode facing off against the Shape (scored by Carpenter!), has me VERY optimistic for this year's Samhain Season!
