I stopped into Michael's last Friday to check if they had started stocking their shelves with Halloween items yet, and though it wasn't much, they did have a few things! I pretty much squeeeeeeeeeealed with delight when I saw they had some stuff out!
One end cap (in the photo above and the one below) was filled with Halloween signs, witchy items, eerie ornaments, spell books, potion bottles, and other knick knacks. The only item that really struck me was a countdown to Halloween sign, with a chalkboard section to scribble in how many days remain until Halloween (shown in the photo above).
Spell books, knick knacks, potion bottles, signs and other items.
The only other items they had out were some Halloween hairbows, ribbons, wreaths, and autumn foliage, some of which is pictured below.
Halloween wreaths up in the very back of the store.
Of course all their fall foliage is out, but I was particularly taken with this
stripey, curly floral decor that reminded me of Beetlejuice!
I figure that since they have a few items out, the rest will probably be out in a few weeks. Their summer section was still full, so they hadn't yet made room for the Halloween items. But soon my fiends, soon our time will be here!
