I was in the CVS yesterday and noticed a small coffin filled with gummi body parts. It contained 75 pieces for $9.99. I might go back and get one. I gotta think about it.

Some Spookytown people

At Walmart I got:
several stretch webs, scene setter, black skirt for my costume, 60 can coozies mostly black with a few red to stamp with a jolly roger and fill with stuff for the party, (and hubby talked me into a blow up Christmas carousel :D ) can't think of anything else from there right now.

At Kmart:
25 boxes of Capri Sun to give out as Halloween Treats

At Dollar Tree:
One each of the Classic Monster Movie posters and playing cards, 2 bags of flies, enough bags of misc. bugs/rats/bats to fill the coozies (still need candies ;)), some bags of webbing, one each of their cheezy horror dvd's, I think that is it ($57 at a Dollar Tree! :D) and a Nativity Set

Spookydude, those are the best tombstones I've seen. I wish we had something of that size and interest around here. I did buy 2 from Walgreens bigger size hard foam stones, but still, they are only 26" tall.
