  • Because there isn't that much for "Thanksgiving decorations". The grocery stores I go do have stuff for Thanksgiving out, like the baking supplies and the stuffing, etc.

    But as far as decorations for thanksgiving, there really aren't any. Not sure why, but there aren't.

  • Yeah, they just skip right over it! I told my dd that Thanksgiving isn't a money making holiday so the stores skip it. She just replied, "Well, that's stupid." Kids, sometimes, they know a lot.

  • Rite Aid had some super cute Fall decorations out when I was there this past week. That is what I equate with Thanksgiving decorations. I don't buy a lot of fall decorations because I already buy Halloween decorations which are up til November 1st, then on November 14th or 15th our Christmas decorations go out so that the house is all decked out for the holidays. But I do always have a fall centerpiece on the table, a small green basket filled with mini pumpkins and gourds and that kind of stuff.

  • They do.
    All those harvest looking things the leaves and stuff that is Thanksgiving.
    It is the " Harvest season"
    I love those decorations Ihave them up now. I prefer them to the halloween ones.
    For halloween we have window clings up LOL.

  • I have looked and looked for turkey themed dinnerware (my aunt has some that she said she got at Marshalls but I guess I missed them). I DO have all the fall stuff and some turkey decos but I know what you mean, it's pretty much just about the food as far as stores are concerned. But I love decorating w/turkeys and pilgrims though!
