It seems like everything gets put out into stores earlier and earlier each year. School supplies were out on display at the very beginning of summer, when kids were just getting out of school.
Christmas decor slowly trickles in sometime around mid-August.
So what does that mean? It means fall home decor, craft supplies, and pumpkin spice everything make their way to shelves as early as right after the 4th of July! By September, home decor and craft stores shelves are fully stocked with everything fall and Halloween related – and usually already marked down!
