Halloween Goodies
« on: September 16, 2010, 03:27:35 AM »
This from Lemax, called Terror Bridge, probably available from a number of outlets, I got mine from Michaels in Canada.
Might need a bit of a wash and a dry brush but it certainly has potential.

Michaels is a chain craft/hobby store. We have them in NYS.

Yes, Michaels is a craft/hobby store very much like Hobby Lobby.  Lowes, in the US, carries the Lemax Xmas village stuff so there's a chance they'll carry the 'Spooky town' stuff too.

I think it was CDN$27.99 retail but Michaels have a 40% off sale from now until Halloween so I paid around CDN$16.  If there are any left closer to Halloween they'll probably drop to 50% off, and if they go back to full price, there's a 50% off voucher with their weekly flyer.

Michael's Spookytown products are currently 40% of here in New York State, according to the local flyer. Although one could wait for a 50%-off coupon to arrive after the sale's ended, I wouldn't advise waiting too long: last year and the year before that our local Michael's had pulled down over 90% of their Halloween stock and replaced it with Christmas product by the third week of October.They didn't even keep their Halloween product on the shelves 'til Halloween. (Want to get your Halloween decorations one week before the holiday? Not at Michael's...  >:( )

Due to tight finances, I passed on this piece when I first saw it - but the more I look at it, the more I think I must have it for my Strange Aeons games. If the Michael's around here still have any, that is...

This is an online retailer.  Haven't used them, though.

Nice site.  The bridge is $11.99, didn't look at the shipping though.

Last year at Micheals in the halloween stuff I got 2 packs of their "pile of skulls".  They make great jungle terrain, to mark when your intrepid explorers run the risk of cannibals.  Or the way to mark the "peaceful" village from the not so peaceful one.

Hadn't seen that one before.  Will have to check our local Michael's and Lowes.

I was only mildly aware of Lemax at Halloween, though the first week of November is often my happiest time of the year, with after Halloween sales. Cheap plastic goblets  can be cutdown to marvelous creepy pillars and other structural members, for instance. If  you see them for 75-90% off, usually two weeks on, all the better!

However, the clearance discounts have been shorter and less of late. I suspect the stores have decided that storage is better than training folks to buy cheap for next year.

I've bought a fair amount of Lemax post-Xmas from discount department stores, like Shopko and Target, so I'll be checking them out for Halloween, something they've tended to cover only as costumes, but I do recall the All Saints' Eve display area was rather large at Target.

In spite of being somewhat a diamond in the rough, my being a devotee draconis means I MUST HAVE THAT BRIDGE!!!

Thanks, indeed!

Doug
