    ^Cool Chris!

    I discovered a trick to bring those faded table top blowmolds back to life...replace the standard lightbulb inside with an orange bulb. The dimmer, colored light makes a HUGE difference when lit indoors.

    ^Good idea! I have done that in some Christmas blow-molds, just because red bulbs are easier to come by at Christmas-time. I'll be on the lookout for an orange bulb.

    ^ I have to laugh at some pieces of yours that I have too, Chris. That dracula cookie cutter in particular. I have many fond (?) memories of the cookie dough getting stuck in the cutter, trying to make Dracula cookies with my mom. I'm sure she still has it.

    ^Nice! My Mom managed a Hallmark store for about 10 years, so pretty much spanning the 80s, and I still have tons of Hallmark holiday stuff. Lots of great memories attached to them.

    You've got some great stuff there.

    I've been thinking about going to a more vintage Halloween display the last couple years.
    I don't have the cash to do the big, realistic stuff that some of the people are doing now. And I don't have the time/energy to build my own props anymore either.
    So, to stand out a bit from the rest, I've been considering the switch.
    After seeing some of your stuff, I'm even more inclined to go that rout.

    Isn't there some house up by your neck of the woods that does a really elaborate display every year? I remember driving up there to see it a couple times.

    Oh yeah. Randy's Haunt on Williams St.

    I spend a lot of time there every year checking things out and chatting with him about stuff, and taking pics.
    Just realized I didn't get last years up yet, but here is 2015
