**ViNtaGe Halloween GURLEY CANDLES**

OMG!*!*! ~ "It's a bit NiPPy this MoRniNg!!!  - Somewhat "BITTERSWEET" - knowing that before long we'll be shut-in for the LONG Winter Season, here in Wisconsin...  HOWEVER, I'm REALLY looking forward to hauling out some serious ViNtaGe Halloween Collectibles!*!*!  Time to say "Bye-Bye" Early FAll Vignette & onto ViNtaGe HaLLoween!*!*!  Here are a few pics of how I displayed my collection of ViNtaGe Gurley Halloween Candles in years prior ~ ThE BeSt!*!*!  Watch for pics later in the week to see what develops THIS YEAR...

I've been collecting these ViNtaGe Gurley Candles for many years...  I believe they first came out  around the 1940's...  I only collect the ones that have the original cardboard on the bottom with price sticker...
 
 
 
 This was my display LAST YEAR...  The cabinet was from the RED CHAIR ANTIQUES, in Peterborough, New Hampshire...
 
 
 
 Close-Up...  At one time I had seen the Witch w/Cauldron (in the center) - go for over $100. on Ebay...  I was lucky enough to find mine for $5.00 @ a Flea Market, in the original box...  This particular one is not as old as the others...
 
 
 
I popped-in (middle center) a very fragile vintage paper mache tree that I dearly love...
 


And lastly...  Sometime this week - It's "Bye-Bye" Early Fall Vignette...  This is my MOST FaVoRiTe Vignette I've recently done...  Time for more creations with Blogger InSpiRaTioN!*!*!

Have a wonderful rest of the WeekEnd... 
ShoPPinG ELKHORN FLEA - SUNDAY...
Please do "Say Hellooooo" if you see me there...

  1. Love your Halloween collection! I have an old green stepback cupboard that is filled with all my old vintage Halloween stuff and Jack-O-Lanterns. Wishing we had a nip in the air this morning. We are having a mini heat wave before Fall arrives!

    Take care, Sue

  9. Hi Jeanine, Can you give me any inside scoop on the Kane County Flea Market? We are trying to plan a weekend getaway the first weekend in November for our anniversary and we're thinking about Chicago and hitting Kane County on Saturday. Good idea? Bad idea since it's November? Any insight would be appreciated! Thanks!
