Vintage Halloween Noisemakers at eBay #14

Halloween clickers are fun! This cute owl clicker ended this past weekend at eBay. For a little under $25.00--a very reasonable ending price. I missed the auction or would have snapped it up. Check out eBay for affordable Halloween noisemakers!

Halloween Necklaces

We now have some neat Halloween necklaces in The Vintage Halloween Store! See previews below. We've got quite a few silhouette styles and then the Hallo Ladies from vintage Halloween postcards and some crepe images. You can also purchase these in our Vintage Party Cafe Press Shop--we've got earrings too in the shop. Oval or circle shapes. They are nice and lightweight too.

The Vintage Halloween Store: 2011 Preview #5 - Martha Stewart Halloween #1

Martha Stewart Halloween

We now have the 2011 line of Martha Stewart Halloween available for pre-order in the Vintage Halloween Store--these will ship late July once we receive them in stock! We have 35 new items from the line and some classic favorites still being produced--plus clearance on the 2010 items!

I'm enjoying this year's sampling of Classic Halloween and also the Elegant Witch theme. Last year's theme was vampire, but this year's elegant witch theme can go with a lot of different Halloween styles and is very mix and match. So it's very flexible for your parties. Here's a sampling of some of the new items. Will preview more in future Blog postings. (Classic Halloween coasters shown above)

Country Living - Black Cat Fortune Game

For those of you interested in fortune telling games and ephemera related to fortunes, the June 2011 issue of Country Living has some interesting stuff in the Collectibles section including The Black Cat Fortune Telling Game pictured, shown here:

This is a quaint game--sometimes associated with Halloween by some collectors, others consider it more loosely related.

See page 43 of the current issue for more info.

Vintage Halloween Noisemakers at eBay #13

Check out this neat bell noisemaker that sold today for $100.60. It's really neat and I like the graphics especially of the flying witch over the silhouetted skyline with the crescent moon. This is one of those noisemakers that's a bit more pricey to collect and not as common as some of the other ones you frequently spot at eBay in the $20.00 to $40.00 range.
