Happy Halloween 2016

Well, another Halloween is nearly in the books. This season has gone by so fast that it seems as if I began putting out my decorative things just yesterday.
There have been a fair number of very good vintage Halloween items up for sale on eBay this season, although some of the prices collectors are willing to pay stretch the limits of credulity. I've been able to add a great deal to the collection this cycle, especially as my collecting interests turn away from German compo candy containers and toward the rarer paper goods produced by Beistle, Dennison and Gibson. Over the next few years I'll reduce my candy container collection to my favorite 50-60, selling the others through my annual auctions held in early May. (I have already begun setting great finds and de-accessioned items aside for the 2017 event. Remember that my auctions are open only to those who have purchased a copy of the third edition of Vintage Halloween Collectibles.) 
Today will be a busy one for many of us. Look for my next update tomorrow. The happiest of Halloweens to you and yours!!
