Some cool Dollar Store swag I picked up with the fam the other day. We've hit all the major retailers on our hunt for interesting Halloween items: Michaels, Hobby Lobby, TJ Maxx, Jo-Ann Fabrics, etc. TJ Maxx is the front-runner so far (as usual) with Michaels a close second, but overall I haven't been too knocked out with the themes this year - much too cutesy and cartoony for my tastes (which is pretty much a reflection of the times and how nauseatingly commercial Halloween has become).

However, it's still early, so hopefully one of these stores - or some of the others that have yet to put out their wares - steps up and delivers some really cool, dark merchandise that taps into the true meaning of Halloween.
