Finally, after a few months I have time to blog again! The start of the new year kicked off a very busy time in our office. In early January, we began moving our office/warehouse. We are still in the same industrial complex we've been in for about 5 years now, but we made the move to a larger space... allowing us to stock even more great Halloween products than ever before! We did loads of painting, followed by tons of packing, dismantling of pallet racks AND THEN rebuilding it all in our new spot. It took almost two months to get the job completed! And at no time during the move did we ever stop shipping orders... quite the task when products were spread across two locations at some points! We are now happily settled into the new digs and it's back to business as usual.
Also in January we attended two tradeshows and had a ball seeing all of the new product offerings available for Halloween 2010. I will be posting photos of some of the new masks and props that we've ordered in the coming days. We picked up a fabulous line of new zombie props - full size, free standing zombies... awesome! There will also be many new animatronic props at very reasonable prices this year. We're talking about props that move, light up, and have sound that will retail in the $60 - $100 range! And if you loved the Rocking Granny prop from 2009, then you'll love the additions to that line of deluxe animatronics - there's a new Crotchety Grandpa, a prisoner being electrocuted, a screaming toddler, and a great half-body that squirms around and moans. This line of products will retail in the $300 - $350 range, which is amazing for these high quality, all steel and latex construction props.
I will try to have photos and videos of many of these new items up soon. We are expecting some of these to start arriving in late March or early April. Most of the others will come in during June - August. I'll keep you posted!
