Countdown to Halloween - Oct. 23rd: Vintage Halloween Displays

I love seeing vintage Halloween displays--especially at Halloween, but all year round there are collectors who keep up their displays or even relegate a whole room in the house to their collections. Click on each of these photos for a larger image.

A collector shared these photos of their display with us and I wanted to share with you all.

These games can be purchased fairly inexpensively at eBay compared to some of the other vintage Halloween collectibles if you're looking to start out with something that's not going to break your bank.

The lanterns are so bright and festive, shown in this photo.

And a Halloween feather tree is a great addition for all the Halloween ornaments in your collections.

If you're wondering where to find such great vintage items, check out eBay but also try a newer site, Bonanza! Your local antique malls are a great source too for vintage Halloween. If you're lucky enough to live near a holiday show like the one in Ohio every year, those are always fun haunts.

Wow, those are fantastic. I wish I had the space to leave up a Halloween display all the time. But then again...I wonder if it would make Halloween seem less special if I did?
