Either way, most of the Halloween treats and awesomeness have almost disappeared off the shelves and been replaced by Christmas ornaments and wrapping paper.
I've managed to scratch away with a couple items from the halloween discount piles; other items were gifts, and items bought in the last haul before this.
- Glow in the dark ribcage shirt
- Bat window decals
- Spider inside purple goo in a coffin box
- Bat bandana
- Spider web and candy corn fabric
- (Not shown) jack o' lantern socks
- Skeleton couple
- Owl with dead tree glass ornament
- Spider floating candles
I bought the fabric intending on making a tie on bustle, but then the idea of knee length bloomers popped into my head... now I'm not so sure which I should do first; I have four yards so I'm assuming I have enough for both!
The brushes are super wicked; the bristles are a purple gradient, the handles are deep sparkly purple, and the case is a shiny vinyl purple. They're very soft and feel of very decent quality considering the price.
Both totaled $21.05, with free shipping.
On its way is a beauty blender sponge that I also bought on Ebay for $1.89 with free shipping-- I'm just a tad bummed because they sold out of the purple color, but it's not like the color for this is hugely important, it just would've been nicer to have.
I'm really starting to love Ebay as much as Etsy.
Alas I think these are the last items I will be purchasing for the rest of the year... there's no point shopping when the things I love only come once a year for a very limited time. Clothes aren't as hugely "urgent" a buy as Halloween goodies since I can eventually make it if I don't end up buying it, in most cases.
Is Halloween in your area dying or absent? How do you cope with the loss of neat goodies?
