Vintage Halloween Spinner Party Game, Ex Cond.

This is a tiny game that I've never seen before. (I missed this listing as I've been so busy lately, else I would have attempted to have it be part of the collection.) This was certainly made by Whitney in the 1920s. Given its diminutive size, it may have been used as a place setting at a long-ago party. I like the whimsical nature of the design, the expression on the young witch's face and the cat's expression. He seems to be thinking, Feed my already, hag! The buyer got a solid bargain.
This is the time of the year when bargains abound on eBay. Sellers make the mistake of thinking October is the best time to sell vintage Halloween items. Wrong! So many people think that, that the listings explode and the average price drifts inexorably downward. I feel the best time to sell is April through June, with September and October being the best time to buy.
