Get in witches, we’re going Halloween shopping!
Sorry. That line from “Mean Girls” has been stuck in my head since a friend said it a few weeks ago, and it seemed appropriate for today’s post.
Because we’re going shopping.
Yes, I am well aware it is only June 1, but you guys…I am jonesing for Halloween BAD right now. I simply could not help myself anymore. I am dying to see spooky goodies lining store shelves again, and lucky for me there’s a store down the street I thought would do just the trick:
Arne’s Warehouse is a Houston institution. This party supply store has been in business for more than 60 years. I grew up going here from time to time for hard-to-find or ridiculous cheap party supplies. (If you watched my Instagram stories Tuesday as I was browsing…you know how ripped off I felt by my old stand-by store!) It is such a fun wonderland to wander, regardless of what type of event you’re shopping for.
And I just had this feeling that they might have some Halloween goodies on their shelves.
Here’s what I found while Halloween shopping:
First, you need to know how absolutely MASSIVE this store is.
Aisles upon aisles upon aisles of party supplies.
Plus it’s two stories! I didn’t find any Halloween on the first floor, so I headed upstairs to search.
It took a little wandering, but then I spotted it…my first Halloween of 2017!
EEK! The Arne’s staff was in the beginning stages of unloading their Halloween treasures for this year, but I peeked through what was already out.
I love this packaging so much!
I love these pumpkin teeth so much!
The Halloween decor might not have been fully stocked, but the Dia de los Muertos items were.
These masks! Why didn’t I look here for my Dia de los Muertos-themed Halloween party?
This necklace was easily my favorite thing I found.
Sadly, I decided not to take home any goodies – I like to scope out everything before I buy. But I’m looking forward to going back to Arne’s soon once they’re fully stocked!
Have you found Halloween in stores yet?
I know it’s early, but you just might have found something too! Let me know where in the comments…and stay tuned – once Halloween starts hitting stores, I’ll be sharing tours of everyone’s collections as quickly as I can get them up.
