Vintage Halloween

Remember these from the 50's? Maybe not. Maybe I am the oldest person in the world. I wish I had saved mine because these sure cost a lot now.


I had so many of these and now one of these sells for around 100.00.


This is a game piece.


These old Halloween clickers sell for around 30.00. If it has a witch on it then it costs a lot more.


An old metal noisemaker.


It is very rare to find pieces this old and still intact.


The crepe paper is in such good shape because these were prtobably packed away and rarely used.


This is an old German Halloween game. It translates as "witch's dance".


Two vintage witches stirring their cauldrons while scratching their black cats.


This is a rare vintage fortune telling game. In perfect shape these can sell for hundreds of dollars.

I too am kicking myself because I had a lot of those novelty candles that one bought in the dime store. .yes, in the 50's, so we'd pretty much balance out on the age scales! lol

You have some of the other things that I used to have, and I see others when we go antiquing. I wistfully look at the treasures, and tell my hubs, "I used to have one of those. . ."

But you have many other treats that I've never seen before, so it is not only a lovely trip down memory lane, but one of fun new discoveries too!

I LOVE them all!!!

I remember the old crepe paper decorations! I think my mother still has some from when I was a kid, boy I'll bet those are moth eaten about now. LOL. I really want that board game! Cool stuff!

I'd love a Halloween game, how fun would that be?!
I still have my old plastic pumpkin with a black cat light from the 60's.

I remember the witches and the black cats but I was born in '59 so I missed most of the 50ies.

Wow - what an amazing collection! I remember that witch with the crepe paper legs - we had pumpkin heads too...but using them every year growing up took their toll on them! Isn't it amazing the things we should have saved - had I only been the pack rat I am today back then - I would be a rich woman! *grin*
