If you are lucky enough to come across any vintage paper mache pulp containers from the mid-century, depicting scary Halloween characters, such as a witch, JOL (Jack o’ Lantern), Black Cats or Devil, you have found some serious cash!
My book “Stop Throwing Cash In The Trash” has a chapter dedicated to the collecting of vintage Halloween Decor, candy containers, post cards and games.
These items-based on condition and rarity-can sell for over $1,000!!!
Here is some photos of recently sold Halloween paper mache lanterns/candy containers, and what they sold for.
The black cat-$454, Jack o’ Lantern-$242.50, Orange Devil-$363 and the witch for $406.
