Bargains ~ Rats, Book and Candles

Hey, Y'all! 
I haven't done a lot of Fall decorating yet, but I've been checking out the stores. 
The other day, I stopped by the Dollar Tree to pick up a loaf of bread. 
DT was loaded with Halloween things, but I just got two...  

...big, black rats!

They even squeak! 
They'll be great for Halloween. 

Did you notice the candle? Hubby loves scented candles, so I get Mainstays 6 oz candles from Walmart...two dollars each! 
You many have seen them, but just in case you haven't...check 'em out.

 I bought Mulled Cider and Rustic Retreat. 
They both are really nice Fall scents, and for only two dollars each... I may get some more. 
They have lots of other Fall fragrances, like Warm Apple Pie and Hazelnut Cream.

Today, I stopped by Goodwill, and just happened to see Snobs, by Julian Fellows. 
I'd been wanting to read it, and there it lucky was half price. With tax, it was a whopping $1.01. Whoo Hoo! 

Tomorrow, I'll check out a few more shops. 
I don't know what I'm looking for, but I'm sure I'll find something.

How about it, Babs...I can see those rats as part of a Halloween tablescape!
The mulled cider candles smell wonderful and you can't beat the price.
Have a great weekend.

Do faux black rats eat eat faux pumpkins? The rats are just the perfect creepy touch for Halloween. I love the Dollar tree for the little seasonal touches. We finally have a Dollar Tree close enough that I can swing by there just to see what they have.

Oh i have one of those rats and I love it for Halloween! This year I plan to do an apothecary cupboard in the living room. I'm sure he'll find his way in there. lol! The candles do sound like they are lovely. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
