A Halloween Treat!

In honor the creepy crawly’s, the ghastly ghouls and the screeching creatures of the night I thought it would be fun to scour the vintage superstore, Etsy, for some Halloween delights. I realize that I might be a little late with these goodies, but hey, it’s still fun to look!  And as always, it’s never to early to start looking for next year’s treats!  Let’s just say I’m one of those who will walk into any Holiday store any time of year!  Check out some of the awesome costumes and decorations I found below! Happy Halloween!

Frighteningly Fun Costumes!


Vintage 70s

What the Seller Says:

Details: Huge flares and a fab purple print, this jumpsuit would be perfect for a 70s theme party or for halloween. Zips up the front with a painted metal zip.

Condition: Great – no elastic left in the cuffs, but no marks holes or rips.

Vintage Burlesque

What the Seller Says:

What a rare, wonderful, sexy and sassy treasure this piece is! A true 1950s stagewear burlesque/ballerina ensemble, it features a sexy bustier bodice and true tutu skirt that goes straight out! The heavy satin bodice is strapless and boned, but a previous owner added nude elastic straps in case you need them to hold it up properly. (You most likely will not!) Closes with hook and eyes up the back, from the mid-panty, all the way up. There is an attached cotton panty, covered with row after row of frilly tulle. The tutu is made of eight or nine layers sewn together, that get longer from the inside out in tiers. Amazing! The silver sparkle on the outer layer is the perfect touch.

They’re the perfect addition to your Halloween collection!

Vintage CowGirl

What the Seller Says:

♥ Super fun vintage 2-piece western outfit! Jessie’s rootin’ tootin’ round-up!
♥ Long skirt that zips in the front. Front pockets with red bead trim!
♥ Sleeveless vest top that ties in the front. Large diamond on the back.
♥ Both the skirt and vest have leather ties with red & brown wood beads, giving it a southwest feel.
♥ Hat and shirt not included.


Vintage 80s Sailor

What the Seller Says:

This is a super adorable sailor outfit. It has a cute bow in the front and the bottom is loose fit skorts. It has shoulder pads and the sleeves are 12″, there is a zipper in the back 22″. This is a great piece for a fun costume party. In perfect vintage condition.
-comes with hat

Renaissance Costume

What the Seller Says:

I purchased this dress from a theatre sale. It was one of my favorite fines of the day. I do wish I knew more about who made it and what plays it had been in. Though it is still in good shape, it has definitely been worn. Theatrical costumes are made out of much heavier materials than cheaper made Halloween costumes. They are made to with stand more than one night of wear.
The dress is in a lavender shade of purple with sleeves and front panel having a darker purple watercolor effect added. It is empire waist, and has very full 3/4 sleeves ending in lace. It has a metal zipper back and also grommets for a tighter lace-up. This would make a great Halloween costume!

Vintage Flapper

What the Seller Says:

♥ Seriously amazing vintage flapper costume dress!
♥ Zips in the back.
♥ Straight style tunic.
♥ Rows of fringe and sequins in shades of purple! So fun when you dance!
♥ Best part – comes with a matching head piece! Three large feather headband!

Frightening Home Decor!


Vintage Halloween
Trick or Treat
Cookie Cutters

What the Seller Says:

The six metal cookie cutters are shaped like a bat, black cat, pumpkin, broom, witch and owl. These cookie cutters were used to make sugar cookies for school Halloween parties back in the 1960s.

Vintage Pumpkin
Salt and Pepper Shakers

What the Seller Says:

Just in time for the holidays! These whimsical salt and pepper shakers are part of my grandmother’s collection from the 90’s. I think they’re rather cute. The tall guy looks like he’s just sneezed and the short guy is laughing about it.

They’re the perfect addition to your Halloween collection!

Vintage Halloween

What the Seller Says:

Cute paper Halloween coasters(w/ a somewhat of a rubber type backing). Set of 12 came in original packaging but I have removed them & tied them with vintage yarn. Please convo. me with any questions! (They measure approx. 3in. & are in like new condition.)

Pin Cushion

Halloween Ghost Glasses

What the Seller Says:

This is a unique, “not-too-scary” set of six ghost glasses. Very cute ‘face’ and ‘dagger’ pattern.
The glasses measure about 6″ tall by 2-1/2″ wide. They are in excellent condition with no chips or stains. They are a nice thicker glass and are weighted. Possibly were made for mixed drinks.
This is a unique set which you probably won’t find anywhere else!

Vintage 60s
Owl Serving Dish

  What the Seller Says:

This is a 1960s serving tray marked on the back, Couroc of California. It would make a wonderful decoration or serving tray for Halloween! This is made out of satin black phenolic, and has hand inlaid materials such as, shells, coins, woods and metals. They are impervious to alcohol and boiling water. The owl is wood, and he is perched on a limb that is also made out of wood. I love his unique off centered eyes. It is hard to tell from the picture, but the stars in the background are crystals or cut glass, and sparkle so pretty in person. It is large, 18 in. wide, and 12 1/2 in. long, also in great condition.

Ghost Dishes

What the Seller Says:

This is a unique, “not-too-scary” ghost serving dish. Very cute ‘face’ and probably a handmade ceramic. He is a part of my select “Boo Collection,” as seen in the last photo.
This piece measures about 9-1/2″ tall by 6-12/” wide. It’s in good condition with nice overall crazing in the white glaze. (There are three small gray spots in the glaze, as pictured)
This is a unique piece which you probably won’t find anywhere else!
