I love vintage Halloween items, but unfortunately they tend to be expensive and hard to find.
Like these beauties that were originally shown in the July 2007 issue of Country Living Magazine.
Look at the graphics on these boxes. If clowns weren't creepy by nature, that candy container would be adorable (no offense meant to any clowns out there).
These noise makers are so festive.
And the quirky grin on this pumpkin candy container makes me smile. Look at those teeth!
So instead of true vintage, I tend to buy vintage inspired knock offs.
Like my honeycomb black cat. Meow!
I bought him at Big Lots a few years ago, but he resembles the vintage ones.
And these paper mache candy buckets remind me of the guy above with the quirky grin.
My sister bought these vintage style blocks for me a few years ago. They spell out Halloween. I guess you can see that though.
The images on these things are soooo representative of the era.
So until I hit vintage Halloween heaven at one of my local thrift stores I'll be buying the knock offs.
Does this effect make them look more authentically vintage?
I am linking to Debra's Vintage Inspiration Friday party at Common Ground and My Romantic Home's Show and Tell Friday.
I love vintage halloween items! Images of witches from long ago have a more spooky feel about them! I wish I had bought older halloween items when I had the chance but didn't.
Oh...I love vintage Halloween stuff too. I always buy new Halloween things that look vintage. Target used to have some great things. They did have good paper goods this year but their decorations were not very vintage looking. Michaels too has had great items in the past but not this year. Loved this post. Come by my blog to see my vintage inspired Halloween decorating.
I love all the fun vintage Halloween items, too. I finally started tring to make it to meet my need to have items (that I couldn't really find or afford).
