Just scored a Gemmy Witch with misting cauldron for $100.90 (tax, title and license). The item wasn't in the system so they had to ring it up $9.00 at a time. They stopped at $93.00 because, "that is as close as we are going to get". YEE-HAW

So a big "up yours" goes to Garden Ridge who wouldn't sell me their display even though they were out of stock.

BTW Albertson's grocery store has a bunch of Gemmy animated products including the Edwardian Butler for $99.:eek:

Nice buy! I've been looking to buy one for a while. I was looking on-line at a place called Inflatables.com and they had it there for $170 last month. I looked last week and it went up to $249. Unaffordable at that price. I asked the guy at that web site why the price increase. He was a dick and told me I should have bought one when I had the chance. Prick. Still looking for a good price.

Good grief.

Mine was acting up a little bit when using the auxillary input. It was picking up interference from something but if I turned on the wireless mic the interference stopped, and I could use the patch cord with my cd player without any problem.
It didn't have that problem the first time I messed with it.

I didn't understand why Garden Ridge wouldn't sell the display if they didn't have it in stock.

The witch is popular and sells out everywhere, which is why he keeps going up on the price. Then shipping is going to be really high on top of the price.

Shipping is $63.95 to Ohio for this. And read the fine print at the bottom. If you buy it off the web, and there is a problem (defective, etc.) YOU have to pay to ship it back!!! They will take care of shipping a new one to you, but OUCH! You could easily be dropping some big bucks just to get it....and at $400.00 to boot!

What a joke! $399!! It's a cool prop but not nearly worth that kind of money.
Yeah, they have an attitude problem at inflatables.com apparently. Not good for business. The Gemmy Pirate from Sam's club is pretty cool. I seen it in action over the weekend.

Awesome! I have been trying to find this prop with no luck. Luckly my mother-in-law actually works at Albertsons so I just gave her a call. She says she didn't see the witch at her store but she knows she has the Doctor Shivers and the Skeleton in the cage. But she also told me that not all Albertson's have the same stock so you may need to do some driving around to find one. She said there is a store near by that setup some big special display for the holidays and she bets that they may have it. *crossing my fingers*

Now this is not about props. But it is about Candy for the TOT's Every year I start my candy shopping around this time of year. Now you ask yourself why do I start now. It is because I give out the FULL size candy bars. And I have found them at Albertsons for 4 for $1. NOW THATS A SCORE!!!!!!!!!

Also note that Albertsons has huge packs of LED tea lights nice and cheap (not in the Halloween section, but elsewhere), as well as nice-priced full-length LED candles. They also had large sized Halloween "flaming cauldrons" about as cheap as I have seen.

LOL! Thanks Lagrousome. I was so aggravated...that is until I walked into Albertson's.

The one near my house still hasn't sold out of everything. I think their Halloween props are the only thing they sell that is cheaper than everybody else. LOL! The groceries sure ain't.

Hmmm...not out of stock huh....you wanna buy me one and I'll pay you the price plus shipping :D I went to another 3 more Albertson's around here in s. cali and nothing. Tons of Doctor's Shivers though...I'm starting to think maybe none of the California stores got the witch or it probably sold out a long time ago. My mother-in-law says they get the Halloween stuff in like June or July.

frstvamp1r,

There are two models; one, the full-size standing figure you have seen, and the other, a 21" table-top chest-up version. Although just "half a man," the latter ($58 at Walmart) would be good for peeking from behind a fence, or as a ground breaking Zombie.

I just picked up harry at wal mart today for $99. I checked out the 2 albertsons in Gainesville where I work, but the only large prop they had was the skinny cheap witch that everone caries for about $40.
