Weird Beard

Just looking at this Ben Cooper "Play Beard" makes me itchy.

My Crowning Jack O' Lantern Find

Every year, inevitably, I lament that garage sales just aren't what they used to be.  The people of the era I like have aged out (a nice way of saying they've died or already sold off everything) and people are more savvy about the collectability and value of items, particularly Halloween collectibles.

And every year, inevitably, I run into a sale that proves me wrong.

A few weeks ago, while out on my usual travels, I saw an unassuming sale.  I almost didn't stop, but I've learned if there are things you can't see in the garage, go in.

Most of the items were modern and utilitarian, those impulse buys at Walmart that never get used, but on a shelf, I saw this little crowned guy (or gal).

Claws for Alarm

I found these claws inside one of the many Jack O' Lantern pails I picked up over the summer (I can't help it, it's an addiction).

Tip Top Skeleton Hand

To go along with yesterday's peeping skeleton, I offer this "Tip Top Skeleton Hand". I'd like to point out there are two hands included, so technically, the label is one hand short.  Like the Peeping Skeleton from yesterday, I've blogged about a set of these previously. I found this pair still in the packaging.

Jeepers Peepers

I found this peeping skeleton along with some friends of his at a recent sale.  He fits into your pocket with his hands hanging out, giving the illusion a tiny skeleton is climbing out of your shirt or pants. He also looks like he needs to get a toothbrush in his Halloween bag.  His friends behind him are rings which I assume to be gumball prizes.

Won't You Be My Frankenstein?

Today being the 14th and the season of Halloween makes for the pefect day to show this oddball Valentine.  Marked "Valentine No. 37" and copyrighted by "CVC", I'd never seen one like it before.

We'll Take a Cup of Horror Yet

Welcome to Sunday the 13th!  Mwah ha ha haaaa.... Ehhhh.  Doesn't have the same effect as Friday, does it?

These Halloween party cups were meant to be used and disposed of -- the definition of "ephemera".  They managed to survive and I'm glad of it.
