Nice! I noticed our Home Goods has quite a few different items. Did you see a large skull bowl that looked very "Day-of-the-Dead"?

Unleashing the powers of...THRIFT STORE MAN!
I scored today in the Halloween section of a local thrift store. First a hanging Drac that looks like a total Telco ripoff but he's horizontal like he's flying, I haven't put batteries in so I don't what he does yet his eyes must light up green.- Here he is hanging:


Here is a close-up - pretty fierce looking!



Here he is side by side compared to Telco:




Here's the whole family Mommy hanging Drac, Daddy Telco and Junior bell ringer



Then a beautiful Mrs Munster, yes it was .99  (don't know who made this...anyone?)



This weird cool game:





throw in a few doodads. Who doesn't need a bloody foot candle?



All this for twelve dollars now THAT's thrift store monsters! Sorry for using up all the bandwidth, hope you enjoy the pics!

Found this today at Walgreens.



Almost as small as my hand, but see how Wolfy towers over Charlie Brown:



I imagine these have been around a while, but I hadn't seen them before. Not in my very secluded neck of the woods.

PACKY!  You found one of my favorite Halloween decorations - The Sonic Vampire!  He has made a yearly appearance at a nearby pumpkin patch since as far back as I can recall.  On recent visits, I have discovered that the vampire has lost his sonic powers of illumination and sound, but I still have memories of this guy emitting that eerie music with his eyes flashing a bright neon green...

Here's a picture of him in 2007:



I think he might be an early Gemmy.  Congrats on that great find and the others!

Ooo - the Bride Jiggler key chain is VERY rare.  They didn't make but about a hundred of her.  I bought a gross of these key chains from Imperial right after they laid out a few of the Bride ones.  They didn't continue her because of her bulbous head  - didn't fit the packaging flat enough. 

But about those six inch jigglers...don't leave Frank and the Bride unattended for too long.  You never know what mischief they'll get into...

Looks like Franky has no problem with the ''bulbous head''...
