Countdown to Halloween - Oct. 19th: Vintage Tally Cards

Vintage Tally cards are so festive--nice and colorful and spooktacular imagery! Some of the really nice ones can sell for 30.00 and on up. Others you can get around 5.00 to 20.00. Some companies that made these include Gibson and Buzza--the Buzza ones are especially clever and a lot of them have that great Art Deco styling.

I really like this witch's cauldron bubbling over to the meowing/hissing cat.

Spooked by a bat?
