Spring is almost here! For many of us in geographical cooler areas, that means a return of garage sales, estate sales, auctions, and antique shows. I checked out a show in Howell Michigan yesterday…Lots of dealers (about 60 of them) were selling all kinds of antiques and collectibles. I only found 4 dealers that had vintage Halloween items. There was someone selling some nice vintage Halloween ribbon for $10, a cute little owl candle for $5, an E Rosen cat and pumpkin candy container for $25, a copper pumpkin garden stake for $20, a Kirchhof “Life of the Party” tin noisemaker (featuring a common design of a half moon) for $16, and a interesting vinyl witch head on a kids size broom for $15. Out of these items, the witch head broom caught my attention the most, and although I think it was reasonably priced, it’s not the kind of item that I really had to have in my collection.

Hey, at least there were dealers that had some items. Nobody had any vintage monster toys or old horror paraphernalia. Oh well, better luck next time.
Anyway, I’m glad to see the days getting longer, the cold weather getting less cold, and the hopes of finding some awesome vintage Halloween items for my collection very soon.
