A Voyage to Spirit Halloween

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!

Greetings my spooky friends – it has been over a month since I last posted and I have no idea where all that time has gone. This year is flying by, but it isn’t a bad thing since that’ll bring Halloween season that much closer to us.

For today’s post, I wanted to share some of my favorite records with you that will keep you in an eerie spirit while we wait for summer to bring us Halloween once more. When I’m not obsessing over my favorite holiday, I am obsessing over music. I myself am a musician and songwriter with a strong passion for concerts, collecting vinyl, and immersing myself in music.

I was thinking the other day that I should share some of my favorite albums that I find especially spooky with you. Take a look at this list and share with me your favorite macabre records and together let’s sing these tunes loud to help us ring in Halloween 2019!

The original post said $20, but I offered $15 (I’m always looking for the best deal) and the seller graciously accepted my offer.
