It's Almost Fall Y'all

As many of you know, our SoCal weather has been really mild this year. Plus, since the days seem to fly by at a rapid pace, it is often difficult for me to even remember what month we are in! Then when I saw these displays, courtesy of Christina and Gay, I was really confused. Okay, I know, I'm always confused, let's just say more than usual this time. I will tell you one thing, Halloween stuff is one of our hottest selling items. People often think it's Christmas. At Country Roads, it is all about Halloween! Here are a few displays that we have in the store right now.







What I also really like is that I have customers already shopping for vintage "props" for their Halloween displays in their homes. When I see the stuff they are buying, which is totally cool, and then they start telling me about the displays they are putting together, I've decided I want to do some posts this year of their vintage Halloween displays. And for our locals that love Roger's Gardens. . .their decorator started shopping in the Spring for merchandise for his totally over the top displays he puts together each and every year! These displays alone makes it worth taking a trip down there! All this makes you kind of anxious for Fall doesn't it?

I do like Halloween but I am just not ready to think about it yet! Cuz then comes that other season... which I really don't like!

NO NO you can't post this stuff, I am drooling over it. I think all of my blog posts have been my love of Halloween lately and this is just making me want to come to the shop and see what I am missing. I can always use another jack o'lantern hanging around the house.
Oh I bet it all is just wonderful.
YAY FALL

While I do not want summer to end yet the display in the front room in the shop I am in is in full fall and holiday swing! It has made me start to gather "stuff" to put a little fall and spooky magic in my space. Thanks for the photos!

Girl, I could not be more ready for Fall! Unlike you lucky folks in California, Texas has had a scorching hot summer! We won't see Fall here until October! I love Autumn and Halloween. I couldn't come in your store this time of year...I would want it all! I think that is a wonderful idea to take photos of your customer's vintage displays! I will be looking forward to seeing those pictures!

I have no idea what Mal is talking about...we have no fall here in Texas...only winter and summer!
I love these displays...especially photo #8 and 9!!!
I think that's why I keep my house in black and whites...Halloween always looks good in it!

Your shop looks great Sue, and I can't wait to check out Roger's Nursery for Halloween too. Our weather seems like it's been Fall already for months doesn't it? Take care, Martha
