A departure...

So, I really was working today. Really! Prepping the store for Hallowe'en... the beginnings of what was supposed to be a horrible lovely collection of black and orange things... spiders 'n cats 'n such...
Along with some fun vintage Boyds we'll be selling this year... for charity...
Things were coming along just horribly swimmingly, until...
I heard the loud rohhhhhhr of the UPS truck, my driver unloaded a bunch o' boxes...
Charlie Bears!
Those Charlies wanted OUT! So what else could I do?
Those sofites look pretty good on my Hallowe'en table:
It looks like I'll be going with plan B for the actual Hallowe'en display this year...
Stay tuned!
