Vintage Halloween Collectibles are the Rage

Halloween is coming up and itís not too early to start thinking about whether to dress up as a witch, goblin, and princess or action superhero.  If you think you are too old to dress up, think again.  In the early 20th Century, adults were the ones dressing up in costumes and going to parties, where they played games and had a great time. Many of those same costumes as well as much of the decorations and paraphernalia of the time has become so collectible that people are paying top dollar at auction houses, estate sales, yard sales and antique shows for them.  Hence, the value of Halloween decorations has dramatically increased in the past twenty to thirty years.

Besides costumes, we have seen a rise in the price of vintage Halloween postcards, die-cut decorations and even books.  The reason for the premium prices being paid for these collectibles is the scarcity of such things.  If you think about it, it makes sense; a lot of people save their Christmas decorations from year to year and therefore there are a lot of collectibles available for that holiday.  However, decorations for holidays like Halloween were simply used and tossed by the owners, never thinking about them again, making it harder for us to find the collectibles now.  A recent search on the Internet showed prices for vintage costumes ranging in price for as little as $10 for more recent ones to hundreds of dollars for those of older vintage.
