Fakes, etc.

I'll begin populating this page with photos of reproductions, fakes and fantasy items as I see them listed on eBay, Etsy and other such sites. Hopefully, collectors will refer to this page to minimize the occasions reproductions, fakes and fantasy items are unknowingly purchased. If you see something on this page that was sold to you purporting to be a vintage item, immediately send it back for a full refund.

Thesefantasy items were made after 1995 and have zero collectible value. This seller, unfortunately, is impervious to learning, as she and I have had many interactions wherein she insists these kinds of things have some true age to them. There is no documentary evidence that these abominations were made prior to around 1995 when they began appearing at antiques shows. The seller bangs on about what a bargain a buyer will get purchasing these as a set, but unless you want to pour money down a drain for items that have decorative value only, steer clear of these items. Many of this seller's offerings in the Vintage Halloween category are fantasy items, so be sure to ask many questions if you choose to do business with her.
