These late season Halloween finds came just in time to fill one day of my countdown to Halloween. I was at the last day of a 3-day sale a couple weeks ago. I wasn't expecting to find much, but due to an incorrectly posted start time (advertised as 8:00, but didn't open until 9:00) for the sale, I managed to be the first one in simply because I knocked on the front door to find out what was going on.
In the basement, I found one room of holiday decorations that seemed fairly ravaged. Boxes were dumped all over the ground, so I started digging through. In the pile, I found several bagged die cuts.
At first I thought they were unopened, but upon closer examination, the previous owner had saved the original packaging and resealed them with a few staples. I carefully removed the staples to get to the goodies inside.
Love this logo
Next up is a Peck Stuffy D. Scarecrow probably from the same era. Peck decorations were typically cuter than their Beistle counterparts. Stuffy is a whopping 40" tall.
When I turned the package over, I noticed that inside were...Bonus Beistle pumpkins!
I think these two are a bit older than the other decorations and probably date from the 1950's or '60's.
