Believe it or not, the time to shop for all things creepy and pumpkin-themed has officially arrived. Fall is finally here and just like everything else this year, parts of the season will indeed look a bit different. Etsy's 2020 Halloween trend guide reveals just how shoppers' habits have shifted to reflect the new normal.
Shoppers started gearing up for Halloween fun even earlier than usual, according to Etsy, which is honestly no surprise given how rough this year has been. In the past three months, Etsy reported a 27% increase in searches for Halloween items compared to this same time last year. It seems like plenty of people just can't wait to cash in on all the fun this spooky season has to offer.
Whether your family will celebrate the creepiest holiday of the year with a scary movie marathon at home in your favorite holiday PJs, or by roaming the neighborhood masked up and on the hunt for candy, Etsy sellers have everything you need to stay trendy this season. From irresistible outdoor decor that goes above and beyond typical skeletons and witches' hats, to Halloween costumes and face mask combos and accessories too cute to pass up, there is no shortage of stylish holiday gear to choose from.
