#2 HALLOWEEN COLLECTIBLEs -- Noise Makers, Die Cut Decorations, Plastic Lollipop & Candy Containers

Here is the link to #1 Halloween Collectibles which gives some background information about Halloween and Jack O Lanterns.

Now time to showcase some more of the Halloween collectibles that we have available for sale in our shop. We have much more than photographed in these two posts so stop by and get your spook on!


Collecting retro Halloween items takes patience and money as Halloween antiques and collectibles are more scarce than Christmas, Thanksgiving, Valentines and Easter collectibles.

Noisemakers and Die Cut Decorations

Tin Litho Halloween noisemakers, clackers, rattles horns and tambourines were mostly made in the USA.
Halloween die cut paper (light cardboard) decorations are also very collectible. The most common themes are pumpkin heads, skeletons, witches, devils, black cats and owls. Some will have crepe paper fold out legs or other embellishments and some have moveable jointed parts.

Other vintage Halloween paper items include all types of party goods, such as paper plates, cups, napkins, tablecloths, nut cups and table decorations. Also,look for the small paper sacks that candy or other treats were placed into before they were given out. Games for Halloween parties are very rare.

Another type of paper collectible is the Halloween postcard which is valued according to age and condition, but many times the price depends on the postcard publisher and the artist who created the graphics.

Candy Containers

Old plastic candy containers such as the 1950s lollipop holders by Rosbro are highly collectible, but even more rare are paper mache candy containers from the 1930s.
