Last year the giant skeleton made its rounds as one of the most popular Halloween decorations, and this year the Cracker Barrel ghost was sold out before I could even see what it looked like (back in August, I think!). So while we hunt for something really spooky to make an impact with our Halloween decor this year, we have to keep in mind that they can sell out fast!
According to some of the indie bath and body companies I like to buy from, bath bombs are scarce these days because there's a shortage of citric acid, which is a key ingredient in their production. Some of the shortages we're experiencing seem so random. For years we've heard about everything from chocolate to coffee (which are still possible to probable...) going scarce, but we've seen everything from TP to beauty products during the pandemic. It's not how I expected. How about you?
Kreeptures are so beloved in our house. We love these creepy creatures, but we only own one due to their cost. We bought it when it was sold at a local shop, but we love to watch the websites for all of the new Kreeptures as they are released. This week there's a new Kreepture coming and we are super excited to find out what it is!
While I don't have an extensive Funko Pop collection, I have several in my house and am known to get excited about certain ones. There are two X-Men Phoenix and two Winnie (from Hocus Pocus) pops in my house, for example. So it's always fun to see what's new and what's coming, especially when it comes to Halloween!
September is only just beginning but the Halloween goodies are appearing everywhere, from clothing stores to cake shops. Every year people seem to want Halloween earlier and earlier, and they seem to be getting what they wish for!
Sugar Milk Co. has always looked tempting to me. So many sweet treats! So many fun flavors! But I have enough lotions and perfumes so I always find it hard to justify spending more when I have what I need. That said, right now they have a 20% off sale going on through Sunday, which is super tempting. Just use the code PARTYSALE to get the discount. They have perfumes of all sizes, including minis for under $3 to try, lip oils (which sound super intriguing to me), lotions and many other products to try.
Move over princesses, the Disney villains are here and hotter than ever. The Disney Villain collection at Hot Topic has something for every villain lover just in time for the beginning of the school year.
Spooky season comes faster every year, and Torrid just released some Horror film-inspired Halloween apparel that's sure to please many fans. There are short-sleeved shirts, sweaters, shorts, sleep tanks, hoodies and more in styles featuring favorite horror movie villains.
Some are calling it smart business, but to many of us it's really just low behavior, especially in a pandemic. People are making a huge profit by buying all of a store's stock of hot items and reselling them online at much higher prices. This is especially popular with Halloween goods, which are rolling out right now. Many stores are already out of their hottest items on day one after people buy them up.
