ViNtaGe Halloween...


The 1950's  - 60's
was a Great Time for
 Halloween Decorations!!!
Sooooo many wonderful
childhood memories
"WHEN TIMES WERE GOOD"
*Treat or Treating (without our parents) in-the-dark
along with the neighborhood kids...
*No need to check the candy bag when we got home...
*It was a given to eat yourself sick!!!

on the cardboard...

NaTuRaLLy Time~Worn ViNtaGe - B*E*S*T...


NOTHING COMPARES
To A NaTuraL Time~Worn 
Paint-Loss PaTiNa
EACH PIECE TELLS A STORY...
One-Of-A-Kind

I suspect this BLACK BUCKET
most likely isn't very old,
 due to it's "thin metal construction"
~*HOWEVER*~
 -  it has naturally acquired it's share of
  dings... scrapes... chips...
Yielding a FaB One-Of-Kind Character to the piece...


PeRfeCtLy ChiPPy & Crazed
Paint PaTiNa



~* AwEsoMe Window *~
 great form ~ natural time-worn paint-loss patina
This Window Tells A Story!!!
I remember "the trip" we took to the event I netted it at...
I remember seeing it early-on in the seller's booth...
I remember a good experience with the dealer...
I still WONDER? - where was the house it came from...
Where was it positioned on the home???
on... and on...

~ VINTAGE ~ 
Sooooo Much More Interesting Than Brand New...
