Halloween is never over...

It's awesome that Facebook has some cool groups you can follow that are posting Halloween stuff year round. You can stumble across some cool stuff, like this guy's web site where he posts some great pics.

If I ever do a 2nd volume of Halloween: The Greatest Holiday of All(believe me, I've been thinking about it), I might ask if I can include a pic of this poster of his:

You can see it and more here:

And since this is mostly just a link to his site, I'm not going to post anything new other than this 1925 Hosiery ad that's pretty cool.

More to come, I promise!

Another Halloween...Past

Man, it is such a bummer to see another one go by. Honestly, I think the last week of October I spend more time being angry at how fast it's all going than I do having fun.

So here's a couple of cool items from Halloweens past.

First up is this Texaco Sky Chief match box featuring a vintage witch and pumpkin. Not sure of the year.

Then a Fisher Bodies ad from 1925. Halloweens WAY past...

Finally we have two very cool Beistle die-cut figures with unfolding tissue-paper arms and legs. For some reason you always see these pictured together...

Perhaps they were sold together like these two, that are currently up on eBay here.
