Ahoy, spooky shoppers! The telltale sign that Halloween season has officially arrived at the harbor is when Spirit Halloween stores officially open!
Nothing is creepier than visiting the building where an abandoned Toys”R”Us or Sears retailer once thrived to find that they have been usurped by demonic animatronic creatures, walls of masks and costumes, and orange and black everything.
I made it a point to visit the first Spirit Halloween of the season on Friday, Aug. 9 (only ONE day after it just opened) on 71st Street in Tulsa, OK.
I always get a kick out of their displays and was giddy with Halloween glee to find that this location was well stocked and all of their frightening displays were working without a hitch. Keep reading to see some of the sights you can expect at Spirit Halloween stores in 2019!

Today is a monumental day! One year ago today I launched Halloween Head! A little idea that blossomed into a creative outlet that has led me to make new friends, meet other Halloween lovers, and has filled my spooky spirit with so much joy!
I cannot begin to thank YOU the reader, subscriber and fellow Halloween Head for your support!

It’s officially five months until the best day ever – Halloween! At Home is making all Halloween obsessed folks happy lately by stocking Halloween decor early – well before all other retailers and just in time to help us Halloween heads have something to look forward to during the sweltering summer months.
I ventured over to my local At Home this afternoon and was pleasantly surprised to find several aisles full of Halloween joy. My absolute favorite find are these positively ghoulish skeleton gnomes. I collect gnomes, and once I saw these little guys I knew my collection would not be complete without them.

Valloween has come and passed, and Halloween seems so far away. But fear not spooky friends, because this time in-between seasons has me feeling nostalgic and looking back on my past blog posts.
I figured now would be a great time to revisit some of my favorite posts, recipes and DIYs to keep the spirit of Halloween alive during this chilly and bleak transition into spring.
Take a look back at my favorite posts with me…

I want to tell you the story about my favorite blow mold, which is named Jack. I’m not sure if my father coined the name Jack or if it was me – but somehow this blow mold ended up being called Jack!
Now Jack was not always my favorite blow mold…in fact, my family had this Halloween decoration for as long as I can remember and at the very beginning I HATED Jack.

This Friday I went to an estate sale that had a surprisingly good assortment of Halloween goodies. I ended up going home with a Better Homes and Gardens Halloween Idea book that was published in 2000 for a few bucks and these delightfully “vintage” (I don’t know if 1986 is technically considered vintage yet…) McDonald’s Halloween Happy Meal pails.

What can you get with $3? A gourmet coffee? A pumpkin to carve? A bag of candy? How about A PAIR OF VELOUR STACKED HEEL BOOTIES! I went shopping with my future sister-in-law the other weekend and we stopped into Rue21, and of course, I go straight to the clearance section and see two pairs of these left in my size and marked down to $3. That was the ultimate sign that they needed to come home with me and adorn my feet this fall. The stars were truly aligned for me that day!

Since this is my SECOND Spooks and Shoes post – I’ll do a double shoe feature (also because I ordered a pair of booties that came this week that I am literally head over heels for).
