Throwback Thursday - Vintage Halloween on Pinterest

I love Pinterest.  You can find me here:  Birdhouse Books on Pinterest.  Although I do spend time there with work (posting vintage children's books and holiday cards), I also just enjoy the vintage graphics and photos found there.  Since I love Halloween and also love Pinterest, of course I enjoy finding fun Halloween pictures at Pinterest.  I wanted to share a few vintage Halloween pins with you today.

Spooky Music for Spooky Occasions is a vintage children's record:

Kool-Aid ad from 1964 - great photo of children in costumes:

A die-cut Halloween owl, like you would hang on a door or a classroom wall.  These were usually by Dennison or Beistle:

A 1960's vintage photo of children in Halloween costumes:

Also 1960's vintage, a little boy making popcorn ball treats:

An antique photo postcard of a witch and her cat:

A 1960's Halloween ad from Woolworth dimestore:

Brach's candy ad from 1962:

A Halloween candy cup made of plastic.  I remember these from parties!

Cute vintage Halloween postcard with two children looking at a grinning Jack O'Lantern.  "The goblins will catch you if you don't watch out."

Collegeville Costumes 1961 - trick or treaters in costume:

Eureka Halloween seals.  I loved these little booklets as a child.  Most of the ones I recall were by Dennison.  The design was very similar, though:

So there you have it - a few fun Halloween images to get you in the mood for the holiday.  I hope you enjoyed!  I'd love to hear from you in the comments, below.
