Vintage Halloween Collectibles - 2014 3rd Edition Published

Vintage Halloween Collectibles
By Mark B. Ledenbach

Just published is Mark Ledenbach's 2014 3rd edition of his Vintage Halloween Collectibles guide! With 301 pages in this edition and over 600 new items, this is a must-have for Vintage Halloween collectors. Illustrations and the design and layout of the guide was done by artist Matthew Kirscht.

The photography, the scarcity index and the manufacturer information are all superb.

Here are a few sample images from some of the inside pages to whet your appetite--you can purchase the book at Amazon or order directly through Mark at his website--both limited edition hardcovers and softcover editions are available. I recommend both--one to keep minty and one to "play" with :)

 Candy Containers


 Halloween Seals

 Halloween Party Favors

 Halloween Lanterns

Halloween Games

The guide features these vintage categories:

Lanterns & Shades
Candy Containers, Nodders and Figurals
A Vintage Variety
The Inner Sanctum

Being especially fond of the games and noisemakers, these sections were a thrill to browse through--and have inspired me to get out and search for more vintage collectibles! Flea markets and antique malls, here I come! :)
