Countdown to Halloween - Oct. 26th: Vintage Bogie Books

Halloween Party hostesses relied back in the day on party helpers like these Dennison Bogie Books - booklets that gave lots of tips on party planning, decorations, food, games, and favors. The marketing genius was that each booklet used the various products in the Dennison line and showed a hostess how to use them in clever ways.

These books are great resources for showing what was available from Dennison each year as well.

Collectors like to acquire these books but they can be very pricey. One way to collect them inexpensively is to purchase reproductions--I've seen some repros listed at eBay and also Amazon this year.

I've always loved the cover designs of the Bogie Books! Would be neat to frame them!

I think they're pretty neat too--and they would be very neat framed, good idea!
