Halloween Haul!

Hello friends, it's good to have you here!

Well, school is back in session and I thought I'd have so much time to blog and list things in my Etsy store, and...nope, that just hasn't happened! I honestly don't know how some of you guys do it.

But as usual, there is always time to thrift and yard sale, while the yard saling weather is still good. And I have to say, it has been very good to me lately. I live in a great area for yard sales with lots of old people in older homes, who are now in the process of down sizing. And of course, that means I am upsizing, or acquiring more stuff! Hehe...

Last week I was on my way to a church rummage sale (which was pretty much a bust, all I bought was a 50 cent planter) and stopped at the most amazing yard sale and I hit the jackpot!

Look at all that vintage Halloween!!!

I have never seen so much all in one place and here it is on my floor!

Some of these honeycomb paper decorations are amazing- check out the scarecrows and owl!

And there was Pyrex and pixies as well! That tan stripe 401 is just what I needed to complete my stack of stripes. I never find cute pixies around here, so even though these are not in perfect condition, they are most welcome.

I've been having a good run on Pyrex lately as well. A few pieces found at the thrifts, but mostly trading for some really good things- a future post coming up on that!


  1. Aw man! I have that same honeycomb scarecrow and it's missing the little honeycomb pumpkin. Ignorance really is bliss!!
    BTW,great haul! I would have fought you over that stuff.

  2. You're going to have the spookiest house in the neighborhood!

  3. Hi Susie, you made out with all the cool Halloween things. You will certainly enjoy a joyous Halloween.

  4. Vintage Halloween is so hard to find outside of antique malls around here! I have found a very small amount at estate sales and was thrilled. I can't imagine how excited you must have been!


  5. WHAT A HAUL! And it looks like most are original print Bestiel!!!! Don't you just love sales like this? I bet you were doing the happy dance. Hooray for the last pyrex bowl you needed, and I am just wild about the sea horses you picked up!
    All of this is going to look so great with your blow mold collection!
