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?
