    The season is coming...my modest Vintage Halloween Collection 40's-70's

    With everyone's favorite holiday just around the corner...(unless you're one of those Chistmas junkies)

    I thought I'd share some pics of my vintage Halloween collection.
    Every year I try to pick up one or two nice high end pieces...everything is original.

    Mint 1940's cutouts to 1960's blowmolds...enjoy!

    Cool! Are those cutouts Beistles?

    We used to have that jack o'lantern scarecrow light up decoration when I was a kid. I believe my folks got rid of it in one of our many moves, but I remember distinctly having that to set up a few for a few years at Halloween time.

    The green skull is unmarked...the last three are American Merri-Lee, the 39 cent skull & cat is Eureka, and the dancing cat and witch are unmarked except for U.S.A. and Japan

    The light up pumpkin is Empire 1969, Mr. Blinky is dated 1959, and the owl is Union Products 1967

    Great collection! Between my home, my friend's houses, teacher's bulletin boards, etc... I remember seeing most of these growing up. These are classics.

    You, Sir, have exquisite taste. My mother has passed down her love of such things to me. You'd be very welcome at Mom's Halloween Party!!!

    I am blown away by the pristine condition of these pieces!

    I'm not a huge Halloween guy, but those pieces are all beautiful...and quite nostalgic, for me. Real works of art.

    I love this stuff! I've been getting more and more interested in vintage Halloween over the last several years. I unearthed my old childhood Halloween decorations in my Dad's storage building and brought them home. Nothing too spectacular, just the standard 70s/80s Beistle cutouts and an Empire blow-mold light-up Ghost with skull, mostly.

    Here's the ghost, who unfortunately got a candle or something melted on him over the years:



    I know SOME Wal-Mart stores were carrying re-issues of the orange and black Jack-O-Lantern blow mold a few years back, but I never found one. I love finding these in the wild, and although I've had lots of luck with Christmas blow molds, the Halloween ones seem far more scares in the field.

    I did find this one a few years ago, for a great price I might add!



    Great collection!!!

    Chris
