It’s time for another Halloween thrift haul! This was a combo of Goodwill & other assorted thrift outlets. Let’s see what we’ve got this time around. 

I found yet another ceramic pumpkin, albeit smaller and unmarked like the last one. Also without the electric lamp inside.

Always a cat photobomb in this house.

It did have a surprise inside, though. This little honeycomb pumpkin. Aww.

This is just one of a group of t-shirts I found promoting Lifeline Blood Donor services, but my cat, Bernie, was too fascinated with them so I only got photos of the one this time around. I grabbed all they had. I loved the artwork. 

This is a strange one. I’m not sure what Krispy Kreme put in these at Halloween time, but it looks like it might glow in the dark. I may have to test that out for the Instagram post. I also will know to check out KK for Halloween offerings this year.

I’ve seen this book on archive.org before, I believe, but this was my first time finding one in the wild, so I grabbed it. 

I grab Stephen King books just about any time I see them. I’ve been collecting since I was a teen, but there’s still so many I don’t have with the covers I want. I was excited to find this trade paper Waste Lands, though.

Also found a Joyland for $0.50 that was in great condition. Doesn’t look as if it’s been read at all. 

And have mercy at all these lovely horror paperbacks. I’m a sucker for old horror paperbacks (or more rarely, hardcovers when they’re available) as well as VHS artwork. But right now, let’s focus on the paperbacks.

I have always been fascinated by this cover of Julia by Peter Straub. It’s absolutely creepy. Was stoked to find it. 

I don’t know anything about The Sisterhood, though I recognize the author’s name. It looked like horror and I found the VC Andrews blurb interesting. The book has seen better days, so someone got some enjoyment out of it. 

My old copy of Phantom of the Opera was nowhere near as cool looking as this one. Of course, it wasn’t until I was writing this that I realized this isn’t the Gaston Leroux original, but an “updated” version. The thickness should have given that one away, but I was just so taken by the cover.

The last thing isn’t all that exciting for anyone but me. When I hand out candy on Halloween night, I hand it out in Halloween bags I typically find at Dollar Tree. Every year, it gets more difficult to find those bags. So how stoked was I when I found a whole punch of brand new bags taped together for $0.99?

I also found some cool tissue paper for gifting. Not sure what I’ll actually use it for since I don’t typically give gifts for Halloween, but I’m sure I’ll come up with something. 

I still haven’t found my holy grail items, but maybe one day I’ll make a post about my wish list for Halloween thrifting. Happy spooky thrifting!
