I am so jealous of all the vintage Halloween that you fellow bloggers find, I have no trouble finding Christmas but Halloween, now that's a different story. I have a pumpkin blow mold that I shared a while back, when I went to Carla's the other day, I found this pumpkin treat carrier at Value Village, the string for carrying it is still attached, it was made by Play Toy Industries in Canada - it kind of looks like the black might be marker, I'm not really sure, there were two there and both had the same black marking, it's cute though, I just bought the one.
I've had this Lefton beauty for a few years, I bought her on Ebay, she's so cute..
I do have a couple of Halloween postcards.
This old card was postmarked 1909 from Galt, Ontario - it was sent to an address in Lambton Mills, Ontario. The message has nothing whatsoever to do with Halloween.
I have quite a few old cards that were done by Ellen Clapsaddle, but this is my only Halloween one and it's not in the best of shape but I'm just glad to have a Clapsaddle Halloween as they're not cheap! This card was postmarked in 1910, written to Ruth, from Regina and Gertrude.
So, I'm thinking I must have something else that is at least a little bit vintage Halloween, I hauled out my container of old thrifted magazines, I have lots of winter and summer issues but not much fall. It also seemed that the older fall magazines didn't really advertise much for Halloween either.
These fun old ads are from Woman's Day, October 1974..
Somebody used the big 7 cent coupon for the SweeTarts and Pixy Stix - I loved those Pixy Stix!
These ads are a bit newer - from Woman's Day, October 26, 1982 -
Rice Krispie treats never go out of style, do they?
And, that's it for me - no more vintage Halloween here...
