I’ll be soon conducting my annual auction of vintage Halloween collectibles right here on the site. Unlike so much material seen elsewhere, the items to be auctioned are all vintage and as described. I guarantee it!
The preview period begins the morning of Sunday, April 29th.
The auction itself begins the morning of Sunday, May 6th.
The auction for most lots will end at 9:00 PM on Sunday, May 13th. The last eleven lots will end at 9:30 PM. (All times reflect that I am in California.)
This year there will be 109 lots, which will offer a wide variety of vintage goods from modestly priced items to those that will tantalize even the most advanced collectors. There will be games, noisemakers, U.S. pulp, German JOLs, postcards, diecuts, small paper, candy containers, and more!
This year, all lots will begin at $10.
Approximately twelve of these lots will be comprised of items photographed for and appearing in all or some of my three editions of Vintage Halloween Collectibles. I rarely de-accession items as I am a collector rather than a dealer, but I simply can’t keep everything.
As a thank you to those who have purchased a copy of my third edition of Vintage Halloween Collectibles, I will be accepting requests for bidder numbers and bids only from those who have purchased a copy of that book from me. It is never too late to order your copy!
If you have a new email and/or phone number, or are unsure as to whether I have this information, please contact me so I can update contact information.
If you wish to obtain a bidding number, you can request one anytime from now until the final day of the auction.
I hope that you’ll be a participant!
Happy Halloween! Mark B. Ledenbach
