Halloween is one of the most popular holidays in America for collectors, surpassed only by Christmas. If you are looking for vintage collectibles to add to your Halloween display, look for those made in Germany of papier-mâché or cardboard. What brings the most money? The early masks not made out of plastic, black cats and deco style Halloween costumes. Boxed costumes from the 1950s-1960s with plastic masks and trick or treat bags also are popular.
This year save Halloween items that future collectors can easily date – witches riding on rockets, masked pumpkins or pandemic related items. Fifty years from now, people will comment on the strange costumes of the day.
