Oh excuse me - they're changing their name to "At Home" but whatever. I knew they would have goodies out since I bought a skeleton from them in June last year or the year before. And since Miss Angela and a friend wanted to go to the mall yesterday, I dropped them off and went to get my fix.
I can't believe I didn't look closer at the skeletons to see if they were the same ones as last year, but I did notice they were still $50. This place hardly ever does sales, so that's the best they'll be. There are half-off after-holiday sales, but good luck finding anything good!
These guys were pretty neat with their saws.
These are neat, too. But most of the items are head & arms and the rest is just hanging material. The eyes light up on a lot of them and they make the requisite screaming.
I like the green-caped guy. He's nothing I'd use in my display, but I can still admire!
They had a bunch of lanterns.
You can get ones like this or non-Halloweenified ones.
$20 for the haunted phone. I was pleasantly surprised at the weight of this.
Nice and solid.
The skull candles have bases that fit in where you'd put a tealight, which I thought was clever.
For some reason, when I looked at this picture when I got it off my phone, it reminded me of some coworkers.
A bunch of yard stakes. This is only about half of this wall.
This is a box that looks like a book. Very pretty & colorful.
This guy is solar powered - it would look nice on a headstone.
This angel was close to 4 feet tall for $150.
A couple blowmolds and foam headstones and inflatables.
Then some of the fun stuff that caught my attention. I love this lion!!
A glass balloon bunny.
And a frog bull-riding on a lizard. WTF??
Alas, nothing came home from Garden Ridge / At Home with me.
Next I wandered over to the Salvation Army that was nearby.
I found a couple pieces for my village.
The train engine from each side......
The train caboose from each side.....
It's a happy train!
The pen is for size comparison.
OK, and I couldn't resist.....the most confused nutcracker ever! His vest says Police. His badge says Security Guard and the sticker on his hat & each sleeve say National Security Agency.
Yes. I have well over 100 of them now.
Since I had to pick the girls up from the mall, I wandered around there, too. In the store called Torrid (cute plus-sized clothes. I almost can't shop there anymore- happy tangent!) I was surprised at the number of items they had with skulls!
I stopped in Yankee Candle. They had a big sale going on. Their Boney Bunch Preview Party is August 2!! I can't wait to see what they have this year!
That candy dish is pretty awesome!
I follow a page on Facebook called Boney Bunch Love and I don't know who runs it, but they have a lot of inside info and "leaked" photos of new items. That's where I grabbed this image.
