It's October 1st! Only 30 more days until Halloween! YES! I am so excited! It's one of my favorite times of year and really starts my holiday season. My husband and I have an enormous collection (well, mainly OMP) of Halloween goodies. He has been collecting Halloween stuff for over 20 years. This week I'm starting with some of my favorite plastic candy containers.
The above snowmen are probably my very favorite. They are from the 1950's and made by Tico/Rossbros. This company made Christmas figures and used the same mold but with different colors and stencils.
These little pumpkins are also from the 1950's. I believe that they are from Tico also, but I may be wrong.
The cat with the stipes came in several variations as did the big eyed kitty.
These containers are the same but with color variations.
The majority of the containers that you will find are hard plastic so they will have cracks and missing pieces. I personally go for the cute factor and who cares if you are missing a piece here or there. They are fun to look at and great conversation pieces.
