Halloween icicle lights and mini light sets


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know where to buy halloween icicle lights and mini lights for cheap?

I found 8 sets of Halloween Icicle lights at Garden Ridge about 3 years ago at their after Halloween sale, they were GE incandecents but were like $4 a box half price... Of course Garden Ridge doesn't sell GE stuff anymore the last 2 years so idk what they will have this year...

KMart also sells Halloween Icicles they are really short sets and they have the plastic pumpkins on the last light of each icicle... The GE ones were pretty dang long I think maybe 150 lights per set but the icicles are half as short as Christmas ones. Good Luck

Walgreen's carried them last year as well. I waited to almost Halloween to pick up Orange LED's from them at their "clearance prices of 75% off", bought all they had, think it was 12-18 boxes (don't recall off hand) of the M5 type and got them for around $ 1.19/box, (maybe even a lot less, bought so much last year I lost count and prices paid!) Don't recall the count though, thinking somewhere in the 70 count range and these were also nice long strings too!

And I sure hope there will be more Christmas and Halloween blowmolds available this year too, as well as a bigger selection of lights! Instead of the really "slim pickin's" we had in 2009. That was just so depressing seeing the Halloween and Christmas decor cut basically by 50%-70% everywhere in 2009. So I'm hoping 2010 will show a rebound, but I sort of have my doubts.

I bought my Orange icicle lights from Acehardware.com for $7 each. They come in 10ft sections. Its on online item only and they will deliever to your local ACE store of your choice for free shipping. Right now its not listed...It wont show online until around Aug-Sept. Check back then. If you want a better deal, wait until its closer to Halloween they go for about $5ea and $3 after.

I agree I think Walgreens would be the best option.

Hey Ryan,

I can't remember off the top of my head, but I remember when creating those yearly master listing's of retailers over at MHD that there was this "ACE HARDWARE/LUMBER OUTLET" STORE that had a surplus of icicle lights at a decent price. If I find the link, I'll be sure to P.M. it your way!

I was browsing around for Halloween Deals online and came across these 50ct LED Orange Icicle Light Sets available at KMart and Sears in the Totally Ghoul line. This is probably the closest you will come to finding them as they really are not in stores anymore. Only $7.99 but keep checking on them, the price will likely go down next week.

I have a few Orange Icicle Lights similar to these. The ones I have are 70ct which I purchased at Target 2 years ago, and they are really nice. The ones I have are sealed, so they do not rust.

What kind of jerk digs up 5 month old threads?

;):D:):P:rolleyes:

Uh oh those are grounds for ban-nation... :P:rolleyes: I was actually thinking about you when I dug this thread up, because I remembered you saying in another thread that you wished you had purchased tons of the Orange Icicles before they stopped selling them in stores. Make your purchases now JEN! :)

Some people do not understand our relationship Jen....

I'm too cheap to pay full price...I might get some if they go to clearance. Takes too darn many to do the house.

I always liked those that target sold because they were orange and purple. I wouldn't dare use those now. I was painting a santa claus BM for Halloween and had a snazzy suit planned for him and here comes the husband and ruined it. asked me why I was making a Clemson santa claus!

I hate both clemson and those chickens...I'm a UT fan born and bred!
