Say, what now?! Halloween shopping? In early August? IN THE UK?!?!
Yep! You read that right!
Britain is CODE ORANGE people! And around three weeks earlier than ever before!
I’m choosing to believe this is a direct result of a growing band of UK Halloween lovers who in recent years have taken to social media to declare their love for all things orange and black.

But it’s not just HomeSense and TK. I’ll also be hunting down anything else I find on the UK High Street. The likes of Wilko, Hobbycraft, Asda, The Range, Home Bargains, and Poundland are always great candidates for Halloween decorations and I can’t wait to see what
So if you’re a fellow UK Halloween obsessive and want to see what I find on my travels, make sure you hit the follow buttons on Facebook and Instagram, where I’ll be sharing all my spookalicious shopping exploits.
See you there!
