Sur La Table is a fun kitchen store that I love browsing, especially during Halloweentime! They recently started stocking their Halloween 2016 products online, so I wanted to share a sneak peek of some of my faves from their collection this year!
I'm sure they will have more as we get closer and closer to Halloween, but for now here is a taste of the Halloween items we can expect to see at Sur La Table this autumn (and they can be ordered online now!):

Target is one of my go-to stores during the Halloween season, despite the fact that they usually don't start stocking their shelves with spooky items until mid- to late-September. It is usually worth the wait, though, as their items are designed beautifully, whimsical, and fairly priced.
I took a peek at their online site and to my surprise found that many Halloween items were listed and available for pre-order! I am in trouble, because it looks like there is tons of fantastically fun items this year!
Here are some of my favorites I found on their website:

When the clock strikes midnight tonight, it will mean there are exactly 100 days until Halloween (right now at 9AM Pacific it is about 100 days and 15 hours)! Can you believe it? I can't wait for autumn colors, pumpkin carving, Halloween music, creepy stories and movies, pumpkin patches, the cooler weather, shorter days, pumpkin-flavored EVERYTHING, and all the spooky activities!
I've already been invoking the Halloween spirit by watching Halloween-themed movies, obsessively checking out Halloween collections from stores online (and in-store when possible), planning how to decorate the house, burning pumpkin spice wax melts and autumn-scented essential oils, and waiting for big announcements and opening dates of Halloween haunts, pumpkin patches, and special Halloween events (I'll already be attending the Halloween convention Midsummer Scream next weekend)!

In past years Pier 1 Imports hasn't really wowed me with their Halloween selection, but this year their Halloween 2016 items are pretty rad! I've been stalking their website the past few weeks for glimpses of Halloween decor, and was stoked to see they recently posted their Halloween 2016 collection with lots of ghoulish goodies!
Out of all their numerous Halloween items, I've hand-picked some of my favorites from Pier 1's 2016 Halloween collection and shared them below!

Bless Netflix for finally offering up the new horror anthology, Holidays, on their streaming service! I've been looking forward to this one for a while (and included it on my list of most anticipated horror films of 2016), so I was excited to see this horror anthology which features eight different tales that revolve around holidays. The shorts include "Valentine's Day" directed by Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer (Starry Eyes), "Saint Patrick's Day" directed by Gary Shore (Dracula Untold), "Easter" directed by Nicholas McCarthy (The Pact), "Mother's Day" directed by Sarah Adina Smith (The Midnight Swim), "Father's Day" directed by Anthony Scott Burns (a Darknet episode), "Halloween" directed by Kevin Smith (Tusk, Red State), "Christmas" directed by Scott Stewart (Dark Skies), and "New Year's Eve" directed by Adam Egypt Mortimer (Some Kind of Hate).

I always look forward to Cost Plus World Market's Halloween items! They always have some great spooky stuff at reasonable prices, not to mention Halloween noms and beverages (some of which are vegan, others sadly not - always check the labels!).
They have started posting their Halloween 2016 selection online, and I think most of it is now up on their site! I did some virtual browsing, and they have a good mix of old standbys and new blood! I am more interested in the new items, so below you will find my faves of Cost Plus World Market's Halloween 2016 collection:

A lonely young woman (Lauren Ashley Carter) descends into madness when she becomes the caretaker of a mysterious New York mansion that has a troubled past.
This film from Mickey Keating (Pod, Ritual, Carnage Park) just hit Netflix streaming over the weekend, and it is a psychological, cerebral trip that is worth a watch! It is filmed in black and white, has very limited dialogue, and relies on sound and startling flashes of horror to unnerve the viewer.

Grandin Road has unveiled some new items over at their Halloween Haven online storefront! I have never purchased anything directly from them, but they certainly have some items this year that have me ooooooh-ing and boooooo-ing! As stated in last year's post, Grandin Road kinda has a bad reputation around the Halloween artist and haunt communities for what appears to be stealing designs without giving proper credit...so keep that in mind if you are considering purchasing anything from them! I can't deny that they always have boo-tiful Halloween decor, though! Here are some of my favorites from Grandin Road's 2016 Halloween collection:

After taking a look at their new items, here are some of my favorites from Pottery Barn's 2016 Halloween collection:

The beginning of Halloween at Michael's!
I popped into Michael's last night to look for some artsy craftsy stuff and was thrilled to find they had started putting out some of their autumn and Halloween decor! There was lots of fall foliage out, plus pumpkins, scarecrows, and an entire aisle of Halloween decor! Take a look at some of the first Halloween items of 2016 I spotted below:
