Vintage Halloween

A dear, sweet elderly couple that live down the street are in the process of sorting and clearing things out as they prepare to move to Florida to spend their 'golden years.' Mrs. Golden just stopped over and asked me if I would like to have this assortment of vintage Halloween decorations!

They are the old paper cut out party decorations and a few of the honeycomb decorations. They are so cool! There is also a trick or treat bag with a wonderful vintage print. (which appears to be newer) She gave me several different packages.. most of the items are in great shape. What's amazing is she even had the original packaging!

I clearly remember these cut out decorations when I was a kid! We would scotch tape them in the windows where our pumpkins would glow for all to see. Thanks Mrs. Golden!

I've always LOVED those Halloween decorations. Those along with the large (heavy) paper jointed Halloween characters we used to fasten to our front doors!! Ahh the memories.....
