  1. Last year I added Patriotic candles they were custom repaint repurpose. This year I’ve decided to add a patriotic snowman, but once again they are hard to find and when I did find one, I didn’t want to pay what was being asked. So I decided to do a Custom Repaint / re purpose a regular blow mold snowman. I think he turned out good, I think he looks better than the picture shows. I will include last year picture of where he will be displayed. LOL I may have to re arrange them. The project when fairly well, biggest problem was the paint removal. I've removed paint from blow molds before, but never had this much trouble. the picture is after about 11 attempts. As you can see I still didn't get it all off. There is a Santa Face in the background that I just got, and one of the previous owners had re painted it with a brush. I was able to strip it all the way down in one application.

  2. Went by two Lowe’s in between field meeting. I pick up a pair of Mickey and Minnie. The manger at Lowe’s said all Christmas should be out by next Thursday for southern area. Also Walmart had old general foam pumpkin pals that are made at blow mold plant that Santa’s best used to be made at in Mexico. For some reason my Walmart only got pink ones? Also pictures on table one on left is last years for example of the difference.

  4. Not a blow mold, Pumpkin repurpose. Wanted a “lighted” pumpkin that didn’t have a Halloween face for Thanksgiving display. Found a plastic Pumpkin full of candy at Target. So I’m going to remove the candy and re-purpose it. I will make a hole in the bottom for a c-7 lamp socket. LOL this thing has a recess in the bottom that looks like it was made for it. I’ll post more picture once I get started on it. Completed this project: Here is the pictures of the results. I already had the c-7 lamp socket and the hole was easy to make. It really lights up good! The picture doesn’t show very good. I may take another picture tonight just to see if it shows better. Hey for $ 20.00 you get a blow mold decoration and get a bag of candy

  5. . I thought about having some T-shirts made up to wear when I am working on my display with plant Christmas logo and Santa on them. Our T-shirt person make a lot of custom t-shirts for our little boy. At fair price they have cool high end huge printer that look just like screen printing on shirt. Well I have set up some of my Halloween items up and toke some photos and have sent my t-shirt people the design I want. So in a few weeks we’ll see how the t-shirt turns out. Below is the proof they sent me last night. I was going to put big logo on it but I did not hear back from Chuck if it was ok to use. So I went with the web address instead. And it’s for Halloween t-shirt. If it turns out good I will make a set up for Christmas. Right now with everything packed up its hard to get to a lot of Christmas blow molds out without filling up basement. Also I picked the Halloween ones based on ones close to front shelve and that I liked. I also had thought about putting something on back of t-shirt but just left it blank for now.

  6. www.maxwarehouse.com has some of the Cado (Union) blow molds and they are saying they will ship them for free! However the Santa and snowman are way over priced.
