Halloween Decor, Tricks and Treats

It was difficult to find created in Colorado made treats to stuff little goblins and witches treat bags with, so we broadened our search to American Made.  US Love List proved to be an invaluable resource for this.  They have done the research and have lots of great choices for you.

Decorations are something you reuse year after year.  I still have my mother’s cackling witch from 1988.  This is case and point right?  Its true you use them only one season per year, but if you are going to reuse them for the next thirty years it’s better to have quality items.  Check out US Love List’s American Made Decorations.  Really cool stuff!  Here is the link, http://www.usalovelist.com/2013/10/american-made-halloween-decorations/
