Lemax Spooky Town @ Michaels

Get those signature pieces @ Michaels with their 40% off sale effective Sunday(September 14th) and YES you can use a 50% off coupon(they honor coupons from JoAnn's , Hobby Lobby,etc.). At least they did to us Sunday evening.  Got the most expensive piece($135) for about $40 after the 2 discount/coupons. They also honored my 3 daughters when I'd purchased 4 pieces that was $420 and paid $126 for all 4. DR. JIMSee More

"We visited the real Sleepy Hollow in New York last year. Here is a picture of the Old Dutch Church. It has its own burying grounds which is adjacent to the larger Sleepy Hollow Cemetary.  Lots of Van Tassels buried there."
