    Halloween 2018 Store Previews & More

    I'm afraid I thought this years offering looked quite poor sadly. I don't know If It's just my local branch but they seem less and less interested in having a good selection of seasonal items out every year. I hope maybe one good item will rear It's head before the end. :)

    Poundland Halloween 2017

    Went to my local branch today, and discovered they'd had a lot more new stock in. Black glitter skulls and skeletons. A new type silvered potion bottles (which I don't think are as nice as lat years but then I'm sure thats down to price) eyeball lights, some day of the dead stuff, etc, etc...

    Asda Halloween 2017

    Thats not bad. Be prepared to see the scammers on eBay flooding the market with high priced ones in the secondary market.

    Home Bargains Halloween 2017

    My local Range, I have to say, is pretty dire. Very poorly stocked compared to the past few years. Mainly pandering to Christmas now, even though I know their Halloween stock sold well.

    I went to my local branch today and I think Poundworld has Poundland beat hands down this year. Yes I know a section of their stock is sold for higher then a quid, but they have a good value range at a decent price. I even saw they had a full size Skeleton for sale too for £25. Yes a higher...

    The Range Halloween 2017

    Ooh thanks for that. I visited the Range today, and was quite disappointed as they didn't seem to have their full range out. And to add insult to injury when I asked was all their stock out on the shelves now because there was another section right next to this one where everything had been...

    Halloween 2017, On A Budget.

    Yeah I use Poundland a lot too. I often use their halloween fairy lights to light up my outdoors displays. Cheap and cheerful and doesn't run up an electric bill. :D

    Haunted Gargoyle Review

    Sadly apart from not being able to justify spending that amount on one item, for me there's the whole storage issue. I have so much Halloween crap I've collected over the years I'd nowhere to store it anymore.

    They're great aren't they. This is a video of his backyard 2015 display. The atmosphere he creates is just amazing imo. :) Stick with it until night falls and then it really looks amazing.
